might as well add a few shots of the gas powered TFL chassis that will be going under it . it's a Toyan gas engine . I had to make a transmission from a HPI savage reverse module and a Axial scx 10 aluminum transmission as crawlers do not have reverse , I machined a mount for the engine and transmission to share so you don't have gear mesh problems and it's also easier to setup everything before you mount it in the truck . the transmission was interesting as I had to make conversion plates and also had to make a input shaft that would mate with both the output of the hpi module and the input of the axial transfer case . high gear gives me 30:1 and low gear gives me 60:1 so it should be able to crawl very slow. with the gas engine I will have no brakes so I ordered a set of the CAPO disc brakes and will be mounting them . I understand this will not be a competition crawler , more of a personal challenge for me as I like to build . cheers
