I am running a brushless 3000kv 4 pole motor restricted to 60%. Gearing is 14/87 with Underdrive rear (43/13), and Overdrive front (36/14) ring and pinion gears. She has plenty of power at all throttle positions and eats battery Mah for breakfast, lunch and dinner lol. She also destroys front cvd pins. Thus the reason for the new axles. The Universals provide tons more steering, and have lower gear ratios (8/30) in the housings. plus the housings provide a lot more clearance.Parts availability is also a concern as the ax10 axles have been discontinued now. So no reason not to upgrade.

I made new links... It sits at 12.5 inches, and measures 9 inches at the doors.

So yes, huge body, a true 1/8 scale.

I have the front axle pushed forward a bit and may have to do a bit of trimming up front to clear full steering lock.

That is huge!! I have a soft spot for the big scales. My very first "scaler" was a black foot bodied truck in the early 90's.Then a 1/6th build that brought me here after many years of just bashing with buggies. How do you have the front end held down? Love the rear tilt mount.. Genius

That rear mount took me 4 attempts before I was happy with it!

The front is held down with body clips in the stratiegic location of the hood pins molded into the body.

You can see the pins sticking through the hood right in front of the hood scoop.

Spent some time on her today...

Did some minor front trimming of the fenders.

Limited and remounted the scx10 shocks back up front with the much softer dual stage springs.

Finished the panhard bar, and the steering link.

Greased the ring and Pinion in the axles.

Fiddled a lot.

And to give you an Idea of the size.....

Sitting next to my lcg Slash....

Ooh I love the big scale! They are so much more realistic to watch bouncing around over obstacles. Nice to just "fiddle" sometimes tweaking stuff and getting it just "so". Beats the head scratching, grab every tool you own and still do everything twice as far as relaxing goes

Agreed on both points.

I got the electronics in last night, and now I just have to figure out where to put the mile long marine rx antenna. It reminds me of the old school FM rx antenna's.
