Well after having the experience of a 4x4 , the erbe, my kids really love the handling of a 4x4 truck.
They both have a 2wd pede each but one of them we are going to be dismantled and use some part on this build and they will share it while one pede is also still functional.
My hybrid project will be on hold.
So this weekend we will work on building it, just have to go to the lhs get a SCT body and hopefully a stock motor mount while we are waiting for an FLM one to arrive (ordered)
From the FLM pede, the power-strokes will be transferred to the slash as well as the mashers on desperado wheels..
The traxxas steel yokes that I have had in storage for a while will be finally of use.
At the rear we will put the rear cvd from the extended FLM if it fits and the front will run stock.
As for the carriers the front will be stock for now (many in the box), and the rear will STRC from the pede.The C block is Hot racing that I had purchased accidentally a year back, now it comes in use too.
The power horse, I have two options, either move the MMP3800 from the pede or put the Hobby Wing WP SC8 with a tacon 2600 that I have or the 4 pole Onyx 4550.
An e-revo clutch will be in place as well as e-revo diffs (not sure what will be the effect of my ratio, will see).
Will see how it runs on 3s and the lcg option later down the road
For now I will be dying the chassis black with Dylon texture dye (powder), only 5.8g and it can dye at least two chassis, I will see if I can do the erbe at the same time.
