What's crackin Revo fans,
I'd thought it'd be cool to document my build,And what better place to do it than here at TRAXXAS.com
It will be an ongoing thread that will be updated as I recieve parts,And the time to add them.
In the begining it was new,Shiney and blue.
It has been to sk8 parks,BMX tracks,And spent alot of time on the rear two wheels in the local industrial area.I've had some great fun with it,But it was time for a rebuild,Which has gotten a little outta hand .
I'm a basher these days,As my competative racing days are over.And the majority of my parts additions,And setup are based with this in mind.
Firstly she was completely stripped down and thoroughly cleaned.All the small nubs from the moulding of the plastic parts were trimmed flush with my scaple.Also a mounting tag from the chassis was removed with the dremel,Then filed,And then sanded,That would no longer be neccassary.A few bits and pieces from the new Platinum were ordered,And a Proline steering arm had to arrive before a trip to the anodizers could be made.
It was decided a colour change was needed for somethin a little different.My Platinum hexes and Proline arm arrived,And all my parts went in for their transformation.
While I was waiting,Material was removed from the lower hinge pin retainer and the steering bellcrank.This was done with the dremel,And finished with sandpaper.This mod is to attain more throw in the steering.I found the mods here at the Traxxas site.
I also done a FOC while I was waiting.
At work I got the call that my goodies were ready.And antisipation was high as I arrived to collect them.I wasn't dissapointed,They turned out excellent.
Will post some pics of individual parts in detail soon.Please excuse my photography,As most shots are taken on my kitchen floor at night.
