    Yeah me too, best color for rc parts in my opinion. The red bulkhead is Integy, along with the old caster blocks.

    All the parts fit great. Should be completed and ready to test tomorrow!









    You can see in this pic how far back I moved the motor. Before the front out drive was a couple mm away from hitting the servo stand. I really want it to parachute and NOT nose dive.

    I couldn't ask for anything better, it has held up great. This is the best and strongest alternative in my opinion. Compared to the other ones I've tried this one is better suited for mounting in this truck. The sliding mesh set makes the motor much easier to remove when you need to. The mod1 gears was mainly my biggest factor when buying this, the truck runs super quite and the gear lasts forever. If you have a welder to attach the axle I would definitely go for it.

The camber geometry before was messed up becuase the inner mount sat further out than the hinge pin. Now I won't have to worry about that or the chance of my glue bulkhead breaking.

    Tomorrow the new grey bulkhead, top plate, Protrac front tower and EXO light bezel should be here, so that's when I'll get it all put together!

    Did you Change the measurements of the chassis? and can we see a picture from underneath?

    Nice to see you on the forum! I did change the measurements to accommodate the wider bulkhead and to fit the frame exactly. This setup feels much stronger, and I'm also going to make a skid plate to protect the front screws.

    Yea that's looking awesome already, i had to wait a day to signup on here cause i wasn't able to register the day i tried. Is it possible to run a longer shock setup in the front also? i was looking and found this thread about jato arms, but i don't want wider stance, just more travel.

    Alright cool, we also had trouble making my brother's account. But for the last hour I've been messing with the front shocks trying to find the perfect setup. I went between 3 shocks (slash front/rear & MGT shock) and 2 different length shock ends to try and get the right about of up and down travel. The traxxas front shock with a longer end had good up travel but not enough down travel. Then I tried the traxxas rear shock with the stock shock end up front with good results. Had to mount it on the whole for the body posts, but it seems like it'll work out ok.

    Yeah the MGT shock has a little more down travel but that causes it to bottom out earlier, before the chassis does. I'm using a Savox SC-0245, Losi servo horn and an extra steering link from a slash 4x4. The top plate is supported by a 1 in. tube.

    What kind of tubing do you use for spacers like on that top plate and in the rear between the 2 plates? i found these that looked pretty strong that i thought i would use in the rear of the truck about 13 of them. Axial Post 7x55mm Grey AXA1428

    It's aluminum tubing I got from HobbyTown in their craft department. I mainly got it to fit the larger frame screws but it works for other things too. I just measured a piece and it has a 3/16 in. inner and 5/16 outer diameter. I'm sure if you wanted to you could find some online, but it depends on what kind of screws you'll be using.

    I had a picture of this guy's that uses those Axial spacers, his look at least 100mm wide. Using those spacers would be better if you didn't want to cut and use the tubing and threaded rod.

    All im finding is 7x55 and 7x65 on this thread they said 55, i think it varys with spare tire location and what not and your motor mount.

    Wow do you think you are going to need limiting straps? I know that much down travel on a real truck wouldn't have a good turnout....

    That's true, are you just going to do a generic shaped frame?

    I'm going to go with the shocks on the right, but that could always change. Sitting flat the front tire sits about 3/4 of an inch above the chassis.

    For a real truck that's about this much:

    I knew someone was going to ask It's going to be the new motor for this truck, going to get a Pro4 HD to replace it in the Tekno. It was fast before with the 3800kv 540, can't imagine the speed it will get up to with this 4600kv Tenshock. Hopefully I can test it tomorrow!

    nice, on my other truck I tried the axial tranny first with Robinson gears and didn't like it then I went to the traxxas vxl tranny with a locker and that's what I stuck with but I like the simplicity of the center diff for sure and of course the ability to use mod 1! do you by chance have the parts list for the setup? I know you gotta by them in pieces

    I tried the Axial transmission and I didn't like it either. You can either get a Ten-T(48t spur) or SCTE center diff(44t apur). I found a prebuilt scte diff from an rc website that I can't remember, but I found this one that you should jump on:
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Losi-Ten-SCT...p2054897.l4276

    And you'll also need these parts to complete it:

    Yea i like the spare tires mounted side by side Vertical on the rear, im just curious as to how much clearance i will have between them and the top links and the mount. I dont want to have them touching when the suspension is fully compressed, it would probably end like your brothers.

    Im pretty sure that the spacers and mounts for the spare tires will be high up on the frame, i just dont have them cut out yet i want to make sure i know what setup im doing and what measurements before i start it, im just gathering parts right now, i still dont know what motor esc and drive shaft combo i should do, is that weld hard to do on the one you have?, Im kind of shooting for a truck like this Blue one, but without the extended front a arms.

    How long are your trailing arms? they are discontinued now i believe. Was wondering if these would work, also Bluemonkey RC said in about 1 month he would have a new set he would be making that i think should be like yours.

    You need to upload the pictures to a 3rd party picture hosting website. Like www.photobucket.com then you link to your pics

    Alright sounds good. The axle didn't hit the top, the mount itself just broke. As long as you plan the frame and it's supports correctly the links shouldn't hit anything.

    Yeah I think they finally stopped making the Hardcore parts and they're discounted whatever they have left. I just measured mine and they're 6 and 1/2 inches (165mm). Those Vanquish ones are NICE, and they look like they'll be long enough!

    No problem, don't forget to get the Revo axle too. I would love to see your truck. Like T4KT1KZ said, try Imageshack or Imgur, I've been using those for years.

    I just looked at my account and I don't think they have a direct img code anymore, you're going to have to try another website.
