    I don't see traxxas ever doing anything with solid axle. Also haven't been here in awhole it's looking good Xc!

    Update August 9th

    Alright guys, so if you saw the last video you noticed that I added the completed side guards so that they cover the shocks.

    Another major thing I did was swapping out the steering components. I really didn't like the red of the integy ones and they also had a lot of slop. The HPI Blitz parts are a direct fit and were $25, so I did it. The great thing about them is that they don't bind at full droop, they have more steering throw and they match the rest of the truck.

    To finish up the green looks, I'm using the green tape to act as the green tube frame. So I going to tape all the sides that I want green and then put the carbon fiber over it on the sides so it looks like the metal edges are green. Tomorrow I'll post a pic of it finished.

    Well worth the wait, thanks Cycon! I take it you have way too much down travel without the limiting straps....

    Looks as though you could use a steering gyro to assist with control on the straights and cornering..... Looks really good and good job on the build....

    Yeah I've been slacking a little, but it's time to get it finished! The travel goes down another inch, but the drive shaft won't function at that angle. The straps mainly give it a nice visual touch.

    No it's not just the video. It likes to want to spin out, so it's a constant battle trying to keep it lined up. You would think a 8+ lb car wouldn't want to move from a straight line!

    That's actually a really good idea, because I was wondering how I was going to fix the traction issue. I'll look into that, thanks!

    So here's the aftermath of that day. Had a leak in the right rear shock, and busted the link support, but other than that it was a great day. Going to try an Axial part to replace the RC4WD top link mount, because the aluminum they used was weak, as you can tell..

    Amazing. Congrats. You've hand built a better handling truck than what I paid $600 for. Traxxas should take notice.

    Thanks Banjo, I really do appreciate the complement. In the beginning I never would have thought I would get to this point.

    Man! You should be extremely proud of yourself! You have hand built an amazing rc truck! I knew from the start that you would have a finished product that rivals anything you t buy on the market! Congratulations!

    Yeah, it looks like a bear at times to control. Oh well, that's what scratch building is all about... At times it takes lots of R & D to arrive at an optimum place for the design. The Video was nicely done as well

    Thanks mitt! I just forgot to bring the fenders with me. Until I make body posts for them, I just tape them on. I think it looks cooler with them on, that's when you really notice the travel! Next video I'll have them on for sure.

    I agree man, it takes a while, but getting it right in the end is the reward of building!

    Thanks Cameron, it's crazy how far it's come in.

    RC4WD actually made a trophy truck kit but it's seems like they've discontinued it. I think it was around $400.

    I plan on using bump stops, just haven't figured out the right setup yet. The slash front shocks are a little too long, but the 1/16 shocks aren't big enough to actually dampen the axle...

    Thanks a lot BEvans. I'm really happy that what I've done with this has inspired others. I really want to popularize scale trophy trucks in rc. Who knows, maybe it could be a new class!???
    They're definitely the coolest vehicle with wheels, I don't see why rc companies aren't all over that!

    Looks great. I like the spare tires. Looks like the slash desert suspension video on you tube.

    Thanks, I've always loved his truck. It was one of the main reasons I wanted to build a scale trophy truck. He really found a good handling scale setup for his stock slash 4x4.

    For other's that haven't seen it:

    I was actually thinking about doing that, but I live no where near dunes! I was watching him on Facebook as he was getting ready for it. Then I saw Monster Energy's video covering it... Wow is his truck amazing... Still prefer his old scene over the new one, but the truck still looks awesome!

    I've ran the e revo shocks for bump stops for over a year. They are still going strong. You can use slash front shocks. You just need to limit the travel internally. What is that random shock doing there anyways?

    Which TT is yours, and do you have a pic? I've seen a couple that had bumps stops. I tried driving it with the bump stop but the oil was too thick, so it just made it land weird. After that I just bent it out of the way of the axle.
