Been planning doing a Pede for my lady for a while. Just finished the Rustler build so its time to get hers done. This will be the 3 or 4th build for me. 3rd full upgrade build, and 4th total since I have a completely stock pede. This one will make it 3 p2des. Been gathering parts, and after todays trip to the LHS, I have 95% of all upgrades goin in it. I have all the stock equivalents, but just need the upgrades goin in.
Here is the beginning of her Truck.
Parts cleaned, and goin in.
Already at a jump start by the time I remembered to snap some pics.
Parts brought in today.
Also not shown in pics is many more parts sitting in parts bins.
I have a RPM front tower mounted, but I dont think I am gonna stay with it. I was thinkn of STRC front tower also, but could bend on a front impact (which will come im sure lol ) Im thinkn of getting just a Front protrac tower, since I like the look of a thicker front shock tower. That seems to be the best way to go.
Also had the rear strc alum skid plate in parts bin. I am still debating on the front skit plate. Since its silver it wont look tore up when scratched up. Want to make sure its really strong for her, yet weight is evened out.
As seen in pic, Shes picked her color. Still have yet to recieve the body, her Rims. Gonna mount some chrome desperados on Talons. Not the best tires, but I got a full set for 20 bucks, and she will be stickin with Brushed system, at least for the first long while. Gonna be using a 2s battery, since the ESC has LVC.
Plans for a body, Will be a pink H2. It'll be primary silver underneath, with some pink Dyed Parts. Steel TBs, and some purple alum washers spread out in good taste.
This is gonna be a quick quick build, since I have most the stuff. Also... Shes gonna start with stock front arms, Than Slash 2wd rear arms. That way her wheels are all front offsets and can be interchanged with the other vehicles.
More to come very soon....
