    Onroad truggy?

    Ok so I'm not sure what to call my creation. I've seen alot of buggies made from this platform but this is a truggy body. Let me know what you guys think. I haven't tested it out yet but hopefully I can get to my goal of 100mph.

    Looks pretty cool! From what I have seen things get hairy after about 70 mph do to the air getting up under the body...making the whole thing essentially one big airplane wing. I'm curious to see how the test "flight" goes.

    I still have it. I just had a little hiccup with the steering. It was driving great one day and I slid into the curb not too hard and the next time I drove it my car was pulling to the right hard! I think my c hub or bearing carrier is tweeked. I was debating on just buying a whole new set because I'm not sure which is messed up.

    That sucks. I hate when that happens.
    I hope to have my new one built this week. Everything but a body. Finally got my xo1 esc to operate properly last night. Now I have to decide what body to run with it.

    Does the wheels run with that body?

    Funny you ask. I finally got a chance to run her today.

    She ran great....felt really stable. I could only fit a 25t pinion and ran her on 4s today.

    That's awesome good to see she ran great for you and didn't parachute on you either. I need to find a road like that. Low traffic and good to run on lol and someone to film it.

    Nice result. Are you running a 2650Kv? Plan on 6S next? Hit that 100mph barrier!

    Thanks guys! Yeah it's a 2650kv motor. I'm temped to try 6s just not sure when. i want to get a new receiver because i lost signal or got some interference toward the end of the road. And you can't really tell from the video but i'm driving slightly up hill. If i could fit a bigger pinion im sure it would get close to 100 on 4s.

    I'm assuming your still running 32pitch gears. If so try mod1 gearing. I'm running 20/36 still have room for a bigger pinion. My 23 should be here end of week.

    I see. Now I know how big pinion I can go with out having to cut motor mount. Thanks. Guess I need to order another pinion 23 might or might not do it for me lol

    Edit. How much did you have to shave for the 25 to fit. Wonder if a 24 would fit without cutting mm.

    It wasn't alot, but i did grind alittle of the screw head too. i think a 24t you might have to grind a little but definitely no grinding for a 23t.

    There are guys on youtube that have a custom motor plate but it sits the motor real high. But you can use a 34t mod1 gear with no problem.

    Thanks guys! As soon as I saw this body I new I wanted it for speed runs. Too bad this one isn't going to ever see the road....lol. no worries though cuz I bought 2! I'm working on getting a new chassis for the truggy. What I did was build the whole front and rear ( diffs, a arms, xo1 axels etc.) and just swapped them from the truggy. I'll post some pics of my project to rebuild the truggy.

    Witch body is this if you don't mind me asking? I have a bulldog on my lcg slash truggy. But I think I like the shape of the body you have more.

    It's the jconcepts punisher body for 1/8th truggies. It's pretty wide....I run the protrac arms and at full turn it rubs.

    Dam. It will be to wide for my set up. I'm running the protrac arms as well. And I have some very sight rubbing issues at full turn with the suspension compressed about half way. Good looking ride you have though.
