Its been quite some time since I have even frequented the forums. Longer still, to actually post something up.
Work and life took over as it seems to do time and time again. I switched to night shift. Night shift time changed. BLAH DE BLAH.
So had a bit of extra cash and the will to start another project.
I bought a standard slash 4x4 from a craigslist add. Ive done it before so please dont jump me for it.
It came with two bodies and mip rear shafts. However theres a hitch. One mip shaft is missing the retainer pin and the second body was junkola.
So mip shafts were scrapped for stockers to test run and like new shell was put on. Ran well for 5 minutes. Center shaft bearing went kaput.
The tear down commenced. It was a fun process I assure you. Lots of sand, and the fun greasy sand to.
So rear diff rebuilt. New center shaft, slipper clutch, covers, turnbuckels, and kings heads larger bearing carrier/motor mount later you have what I have now. A clean 4x4 with 2075 servo, spektrum 3 channel telemetry reciever, and a hobby wind sc8 120a waterproof esc powering a leopard 2700kv 4pole motor.
Lots of things left to get. RPM arms, pinion gear, and other things.
Pics (only ones i have not recent)
as you can see I have enough to keep me buisy.
