    yea the rally,summit and revo all use the same shocks. the rally has two spacer inside the shocks to limit travel though.those gpms are definitely shorter. now i really want to check mine.

    yeah i have no idea it said they were for the revo but maybe the guy got them mixed up for like the boss or something with shorter shocks they fit in fine but it just ruins my clearance and travel so idk i thing ill just stick with stock for now until i get something else that is actually the same length

    i switched back to the steel roll cage and made some inner fenders for the front out of some scrap lexan. i think the cage looks more "realistic" with these tires.

    kind of. in your one photo it shows the gpm shock not even close to the rocker like the stock shock is. my gpms are very close to the rocker like the stock ones are but i didnt compare the shocks side by side.

    Nice.. I have put mine on the back burner for a bit .. Had to complete some honey do list stuff.. I am thinking of swapping back to the more stock setup with the rpm arms and flipping the trans gears back for some speed..

    This is whats been taking up my time.. bought the electric fireplace insert and built a mantel for it..

    time for an update with some cool new pics.. went out today for a couple of runs at an old local crawling spot. my friend brought his axial scx10.i wanted to see how my summit would do against it. my truck "crawled" most of the things that the scx10 did but it did have alot of trouble on other parts that the axial just climbed over with ease. oh well i didnt build mine to be a crawler but a go every where type of truck and it did just that.

    on a steep off camber turn. never got this line down..



    coming up out of a hole



    i actually did crawl up this rock but i think this picture is of a backflip try



    a little air over the rock pile "rock racer" style



    and some donuts to round out the day

    actually its the opposite. the truck is lower now and that means the center of gravity is lower and results in better cornering.

    Dude dont use the 5000k or the diff locker just use silly putty works great at almost locking but a little movement, its easy to work with and also it is way cheaper.

    Twisted, did you do anything to modify the stock axles to work with the Axial rims? On mine i am using their alum hexes that have the raised ring to fit the larger axle holes in the rims and it doesnt leave me very much stub axle to grab onto. Or does the 1.9 rim have the 3/16 axle hole?

    Hey twisted, I have a quick question. Jumping back to the first page of the thread here you were using 1/16 e-revo driveshafts. You also said you were running the stock batteries and the drive shafts were holding up fine. Were you running the stock batts in a series or were you in parallel? By the way I love all your pics of your little rig, it's pretty sweet.

    i havent used axial rims. the 1.9 rims i use are losi's and they do have the smaller diameter hole.

    its time for a little maintenance. heres a list of things to do:

    make new body panels
    check drive train for any binding (had some speed issues lately)
    maybe do the tranny flip so i can run my lipos and get some longer run time
    refill diffs. they havent been touched since i 1st put the ofna diff lock in em and they are getting alot free-er.

    ill take some pics of anything cool and definitely of the new panels.

    well i started tearing into the truck. all the bearings are rolling free. gear flip done (i havent tried it yet) new panels made just need to be painted,broken battery door and i found my slipper wasnt working at all. could be the reason i broke more shafts... the slipper pad was fused to the cast aluminum plate. so i had to get that off and clean up the surfaces.
    oh yea almost forgot, bearings in the motor do not sound to healthy. i have another motor ill swap in for now.

    so an update... sorry no pics. i did the tranny gear flip and im gonna run a lipo. i also changed to a different motor (same type) as the bearing in the OEM one were squeaking. i also went up a couple of teeth on the pinion. glued on hole shut in the gpm shock pistons so i could get better dampening. i still have to paint the new body panels and then ill get some pics up.

    gonna try out hte new set up now.

    well the little changes i made above make the truck so much more enjoyable. it was plenty fast enough for what i do, it was smoother for low speed stuff and the piston hole mod gave the dampening i needed.

    would any one be interested in me writing up my set up ? so one wouldnt have to search through this long post...
