well i went ahead and did the XR mod to fix my tire scrub.

parts!


since there were no pics or instructions on the beef tube thread, i didnt have a clue what was needed to do this mod. so i just guessed and figured things out as i went. no clue if its right but i made it work i guess.

first i dremeled the inside and outside of the outer part of the axle case smooth removing the raised parts. also i need a way to secure the Beef Tubes to the housing , origonally i was going to use the origonal case Cs set screw holes, but after dremeling there was only 1mm of material left. So the area between the shock mounts looked the thickest and inconspicuous so i drilled a hole there.


next i drilled and taped matching holes in the Beef Tubes


then i screwed the Tubes to the housings, and then drilled and taped holes for the Cs


then reassembled everything


and put everything back on the truck. just need to make new steering and tie rods. ill also probly move the panhard rod mount out to the C. making the rod longer further eliminating axle swing.

well in order to use the Mayhem wheels, because the hex pocket is so deep i had to use standard Axial thick hexes with the nipple. well i wanted to use the scx-10 thin hexes to narrow the track, but mostly to reduce more tire scrub with the thicker XR knuckles. but as you can see that wasnt possible.


so i got out the hack saw


problem solved


then i got all the steering links made, and decided to move the panhard axle mount from the AX10 location out on to the XR "C". this allowed the panhard rod to be 1" longer further eliminating axle swing.


finished the truck just in time to try it out at my annual Rock The Lake 3 scale comp.
truck did very well dispite needing a BEC. the servo winch and steering servo just didnt have enough umf to move this heavy truck.
ended up actually winning class 3."thumbsup"
