    Yeah a few years ago i had a Suzuki Hayabusa and they sold some frame and motor plugs like these that had spikes or skulls in the center. I may have to see what i can find on Ebay.

    The back glass sticker will be done tomorrow . Thanks rag6 for the great idea.

    My wife said the guy making the sticker wanted to know why I wanted it to say I Eat Summits . LoL

    Picked up some 1/4 key stock and some 1 inch small bolts .The bottom chassis(batt tray) bolts to the top chassis with 6 two and half inch bolts that run through a 2 inch brace. Right now any time I do any work on Overkill I have to remove the batt tray and braces which puts all the stress on the thin top chassis plate. The plan is to use 12 bolts instead of 6 to attach the batt tray and brace to the chassis. This way I can remove to batt tray and leave the braces on. The key stock is going between the bottom of the brace and the batt tray to make more room for the batts. I also picked up a set of black and a set of semi clear plastic 1 inch hole plugs for different options . Would like to paint one set the same color as Overkill.

    Managed to get the chassis brace put together tonight. Will shorten the bottom bolts when i have more time. I am losing 1/4 inch of ground clearance but the batts will be much easier to strap down.

    Don't feel bad so was the guy that made the sticker.
    We all make mistakes. Being a Chevy guy that is.

    Took Overkill out for a quick run today then tore it down to start on the gear reduction. I installed the 72 tooth spur with lots of dremel work .Here is my first thoughts on placement of the center gears but doesn't leave much room to solder them together .
    [IMG][/IMG]

    This seems to be the best way to place the gears so that i have enough room to solder or weld the 2 center gears together. I still have to grind the stem of each center gear down so that the smaller gear lines up with the spur.

    I cut the stem off the bigger center gear keeping the grub screw hole intact so that i could later use it to hold the center shaft in place so it doesn't move side to side. After several tries i finally got the center gears soldered together and drilled a hole in the motor plate for the center shaft. Maybe tomorrow i can get the trans plate made and put some shims (washers) on the out side of the center gears to keep them from walking .

    Got a package in the mail today and almost threw the contents away on accident because it was so small. I swear there's 3 Summits in this picture you just need a magnifying glass to see the small one . Its the small yellow blur to the right.
    [IMG][/IMG]

    I just hope i don't lose it in a crack or under a leaf might have to put some sort of tracking device on it. When i opened it i had the exact opposite reaction as compared to opening the 1/10 Summit. This puppy better be fast or the kids just got an early Christmas present.

    With the gear reduction added and the 72 tooth spur 18 tooth pinion first gear top speed should be 4.4 mph and 12.3 mph for second. I had no luck getting a 14 tooth 8mm bore pinion from Kershaw Design so im back to making my own . Might as well get a few different sizes to play with and test .

    12 inch tires might be a little too much.

    ... I doubt any a mount of weight up top would be more than the weight of those wheels and tires! I had that thing because it looks like it has a stupid turning radius and the weight of those wheels would be beyond ridiculous.

    Overkill has the dimensions just right if you ask me!

    I would love to have the know how. I am having enough trouble now trying to figure out a problem I'm having with my front diff, my servo appears to be working but diff won't shift appears to be really stiff. But will shift by fingers when taken out.
