Default Ultimate Adventuring Bronco

The 2.2 section is not very busy lately...

I picked up a New Bright rock crawler the other day, on clearance not really knowing what I was going to do with the body but knowing I liked its look.

I have the old chassis from Bubbles 2.0 sitting @ 12.5" wheel base SSD Ar60 housings fully built and a old Vanquish trans sitting around. The chassis isn't super scale, but is very stiff, and very functional using a Wraith Skid as the base.

This will not be a build thread so much as a log of how she drives and where she goes.

Before the body was cut, and on small 4.7" tires.







Not bad but needed bigger meats....

Thank you Mark. I haven't seen anyone else build it.

It is really well detailed, has a full interior dash and shift knobs ect. Not quite the same level as my Crusier body, but great for a runner.

I was watching YouTube the other morning and realized.....

That is what I do, I hit trails where and when I can, and this rig would look right at home on the U.A. or on a trailer behind Bubbles 3.

So inspired, I went out to the shop and mounted the body. It pivots on the rear and I drilled out the front "hood pins" and mounted some Axial body mounts.







And a shot next to my buddies Big Bronc.

A temporary plastic bumper off another toy...



And the rear fenders came off.



And so did the fronts.

Group trail run.....


















After doing some repairs, and tuning I took her out for a little snow bashing in the yard. And a name hit me for her.

Thank you. I agree completely and feel amazed every time I look out the front window.

So I have been having nothing but problems with my front cvd's.

Old Mip cvd's for the ax10.

I keep breaking/ bending pins, even music wire pins and cannot keep them together for more than 2 hours of trail running. so my solution is to remove the body and throw a whole new chassis under her.

Gen 1 scx10 chassis, Ar44's, Hand Bros cms, home built links, stainless lowers, aluminum uppers. 90 mm front shocks, 70mm rear.

Going to put a battery plate right behind the front shock towers and see if I cant get her weight a little more forward biased than the previous chassis, (47/53 weight bias ) Going to try to turn that number around.

Nice!... I wish I had an "extra" scx10 chassis kicking around I have a few projects planned (new bright jeep). Looks good with those axles. Looks better than the stock scx10's axles, are the as reliable? I think I needs me a pair.... Mark

I forgot to ask are you running any additional weight in your front wheels? Could help move your cg forward?

I am, Axial bolt in weights weighing in @2oz each.

Nothing in the rear, except maybe some leftover water.

I have 2 scx10II's they have been super reliable and great performers. I ran this same brushless system in my raw builders kit and beat the snot out of it racing my nephew and his Slash.







My Honcho has over 80 actual 3s miles on it, bone stock except wheels and tires.

It is at the front of the picture in a couple of posts.

Gotcha, I wasn't aware axial made bolt in weights I just wrapped lead weight around my rims, I'm sure they're way out of balance Wouldn't want to see what 3s would do to my rig, probably tear itself apart lol. I have the first gen scx 10 and I can't complain about their reliability. I was wondering if the 44's were as strong because they look way sexier Looks like a good time with your nephew, nice to see kids taking up this hobby.... Mark

Yeah he loves his Slash, and showed a huge intrest in My Honcho. He may be inheriting a scaler soon. I'm going to throw a gen 1 scx10 together for my brother soon, and my parents just groomed a "track" into their yard..... It looks like the whole family might be getting into it.
