    Yeah his would have made a mess inside an oven, he let his melt waaay too much. We made our former is much thinner than his so it fits in the oven better.

    Alright I made a little more progress with the wood cage. The top tubes connecting the back should be a little steeper. I'm going to have to move the rear piece up higher which will also have some more axle clearance.

    It's getting there. I'm plan on cutting the chassis this weekend. I'll get what I have mounted up, but I still have to order the rest of the parts for the front end. I finally got a new servo to replace the slow Savox one, I just need to order the parts to mount it.

    I haven't checked on it recently, how's you build going?

    Ok thanks Gunslinger, I'll look into that.

    Sorry for the bad pics but I just wanted to show you guys the cage. I mounted up the axle with the shocks to show how everything looks. For the shocks I plan on making a small metal piece that I can drill several mounting spots. It will be bent at both ends and attach to those two tubes. Other than that, I also decided that I'm going to run shorty packs. Since they're much smaller than a regular 2s, they can fit nicely right behind the cab and not interfere with the shocks. I'm going to weld on a plate and attach it with velcro just like the old chassis.

    Hey DesertMobber, what size tubing did you use on your build? It's hard to tell but it looks like 3/8.

    Hi Cycon,

    About thickness of the tubing you asked DesertMobber. Look at A-arm link rod-ends. Their size is 7mm and the tubing looks pretty much the same size. So I'd say it is 7mm tubes. I can be wrong but thicker tubing will look weired.

    I see what you mean but the tubing still looks a little bigger. I'm trying to find a tube chassis that uses 1/4 in. (6.5mm) so I can see how it looks. I have a small piece but it's hard to tell what the whole truck will look like. The wood I used for my model says it's 3/16, but it closer to 1/4 in. so I'm thinking I'm going to switch to 1/4 inch. I'm using Chromoly so the strength will be close, I just don't want it to look weird.

    You could also check out the real size of tubing (1:1) and scale it Well I'd follow this way in case if I'd be doing the cage (in fact I don't want to).

    Here is a picture, right:


    Measure the size of tire and the size of tubing. I scaled the picture so the tire was 55mm and tubing was 3mm, then I measured short course tire and it's size about 110mm then made a simple proprtion 110*3/55 = 6mm Something like that

    That's pretty clever, never though about doing that. My mind is set on 1/4 in. but I now have to remeasure my new wood chassis to see how much I'll need.

    I also just finished cutting out the chassis plate. The fit of this bulkhead with the chassis couldn't get any better

    dezertmobbers is 1/4 brake line. 3/8" would definitely not be scale.

    Oh ok thanks for the reply. I guess it just looks bigger in the picture.

    I used 1/4"... it's kinda big but it's strong for sure,I can stand on it and it doesn't budge and I'm 185 lol I am starting trophy truck number 4 soon and I'll be trying 3/16" solid rod and see if I like it

    Alright man thanks. I only want to make one of these so I'm trying to figure out which would be best.

    I think this guy used 3/16

    either way, as long as the design is strong it should hold up to the abuse just fine

    3/16" is the most scale IMO. I started with 1/4" originally, but I didn't like how big it was so I used 3/16". But that's just me.

    Haha not much lol. The front end/steering is really the only thing. I'm going to post a video update on it this weekend.

    You know once you're done or close to done with this version you should do a video with the total evolution of all of the chassis' in it from start to finish. That would be a cool video I imagine.

    That's actually good to here. Even though yours isn't a full cage, it does look way better made of 3/16.

    Yeah I'm definitely going to do that. This whole journey needs to documented in a video somehow. I have plenty of pictures and old test videos of all the different models! It's funny how bad it used to be

    Thanks man, this next truck definitely won't disappoint. I'm working on finishing the front part of the wood cage now so I can get a new video up.

    Yeah it is, and it's fast too! The last chassis rtr weighed in at almost 9 lbs, and it was still quick. If my calculations are correct, this new build should be close to 6 lbs. His real TT weighs about 6400 lbs, so for the scaling to be perfect, mine would need to be right around 6.5 lbs. It's going to be interesting to see how it performs without that extra weight.

    I was going to update the thread after I made the video but I changed my mind. I finally managed to get most of the front end together. I'm also getting ready to attach the link mounts; I'm trying a new stacked method this time. They will be welded together at that angle and secured with a screw through both of them. They should be much stronger and put less stress on the ball joints.






    You can also see for this truck I'm going with dual shocks up front. The rear shock with the spring will have no oil while the front one will. I can either change out the oil or carry multiple shocks with different oils so I can switch them out completely to adjust the front dampening. I'll be able to really dial in the suspension when testing begins.

    Awesome build what process do you plan to use for welding the tubing for cage?

    Thanks Steve. I plan on TIG welding the whole thing. It should turn on really clean since I'm using Chromoly. Right now I'm still trying to find the cheapest place to order the tubing.

    Just curious what is your plan of attack? Being a tig welder I have never done any thing that small. Given the small diameter I don't see how running a bead could be possible except in SHORT runs maybe 2 or 3 dabs of filler before repositioning. I would guess mig wire for filler I have used .045 but sometimes hard to get and I would think it would be too big for tube joint of this size? If you use pulse what would you use for PPS? I have done pulse on small stuff .045 but nothing like this as far as small diameter tube. I can't wait to see the finished product.

    I'm gonna guess he's gonna use a mig or braze it. I can see a tig causing more problems than necessary on this small of stuff.

    How do you plan on running the front suspension. You are going to have to run a pretty stiff spring to make up for the other shock not having one. You will have the dampening power of two shocks but you are going to need a spring strong enough to recoil for 2 cylinders as well

    Edit: Woops. Didn't read your post well enough. Disregard everything I just said. I was thinking you were going to have oil in both shocks.
