Alright so I thought I better start a build thread. Anything from progress updates to pictures to questions of mine (or yours) will go in here. I'm currently restarting. I just ordered a new chassis along with black springs and long travel rockers from a main hobbies. I did this because I hacked up my current chassis Because of a not well thought out and far fetched plan... oops! Oh well. My goal for this project is to make it a Mini Monster Truck/All Terrain basher. I think this chassis is really versatile and will work well! This will probably be a moderately slow build. Why? Well I want to take my time and do it right this time! Also I have to balance it with football, wrestling, school, and my 1:1 race car.
So far my upgrades are:
GRT aluminum shocks
integy shock towers
Integy wing mount
RPM a arms
Golden horizon axle carriers
Then for shoes I have 2.2 suburbs on white traxxas pro wheels.
I plan on making these my 'street' tires as soon as I get some mud tires. I have heard a lot of bad things about integy but the few things I have from them, I love. Aluminum wing mount=one of my best investments. Awesome durability!
This merv has been beaten and abused and now its time to give it some TLC. Just this last weekend I launched it off a 9 foot kicker ramp at the skatepark full speed. Over 30 feet of.air and slapped the cement 6.times until on the last try I broke a servo horn! And no I don't have any videos so I.guess.it.didn't happen oh well I guess! Rebuild time! Let me know any tips you've learned! What do you guys run for bulkheads?
