Thought I would give a little preview of things to come and what I have so far. Am expecting a big order of parts on Wens & Thurs which should get the ball really rolling. But for now here are some pics.
This truck will have a 8 channel single Rx and radio to control it which Jimmie is in the process of building it for me. Not that good with that kind of stuff and not willing to take the time to learn so turned to the best. IMO. ESC will be a MM2 which will be here Wens.
Truck will also have all wheel steering. Sense my first summit ended up topping the scales @ 14.8 lbs will attempt to keep this one as light as possible. Also trying some new things like dyeing anything that is blue black or painting blue aluminum black.
Wheels are Mickey Thompson Bead Locks with Mickey Thompson Baja Claw TTC 40 Series, which can be gotten threw RC4WD if anyone is interested and Wheels are $199 for the set.
Shocks with Double orange springs painted black and then lightly coated with clear spray on liquid tap, hopefully for some added protection for the paint.
This shows what I have done so far to the chassis that is dyed black. Dewalt 14.4 is painted as are all the supporting brackets. Tried dying the small servo cases and not sure how that is going to work out either.
But as you can see if it is not black, will do what it takes to make it black. Also will be dying all boots on the suspension black and if it can't be taken apart will try painting the dye on or use a magic marker.
