I have been thinking of leaving the back open to show the drive line, but making it a beer tanker would be cool and easy, I have a Fosters oil can in the fridge. Might have to consume it for "research" purposes

Couple of more things:
That oil can looks a lot smaller on 1/8 chassis




Also. Servo solutions.
One idea, servo in radiator.
Link to knuckle. Long drag link goes to steering wheel.


Kinda, maybe, not really a big fan of it.

Other option
Servo under seat, modified juggernaut bell crank/servo saver. Servo side of crank drives steering wheel.

I like this better. It almost completely fills under seat space though.
Which means I will be on the lookout for a thin/short ESC to stuff into the radiator. Maybe a real small 2s could go between the drive shaft/frame rail under the floor/servo. I don't know yet.

R/X may end up under the dash. Just let the servo wires dangle. Nothing this ratty would have neat wiring anyway.

Ok. So when life ends up with you having the perfect axles for a dream build, you build it!

All those details are in the 2.2 section

But that also means I lost my big V8 for this build. :cry:
But that's ok.
This build just got rattier. More ratty?

Insert new power plant


750 motor and two speed planetary.
It even has a slipper clutch built in.

The 8th scale V8 is a little short.
I might have to come up with something else to hide the motor.

Let the build continue!

That's a good way to shorten it up. I'm leaning another direction.

This already looks like it has a drill chuck on the end of it.

That motor would suit it but the 1/8 scale motor is built and can be awesome to. Waiting for update but will be awesome next to the hogan hot rod.

I'd kinda feel a 5th wheel mounted on a plate over the axles rather than the beer can tanker.

I was thinking like a giant tank or airplane engine like 10-12 cyl. That drill as a turbo shaft engine should be awesome.

Such a cool build

Default Hairball's T-bucket

So I got to thinking the T-bucket body had to go.

So I did some sketching. Cut out some paper. Welded a couple of thin sheets together so left to right will match.

Used a hole saw to make my curved sections

Cut out the rest with an angle grinder and electric shear.

And started marking the floor.
Then I cut a strip for the floor/back/roof and cut it out and started bending and welding

Sits pretty good.

Got some rear fenders started too.





I can't tell if I like the rear fenders or not.

I'm working on this at work. Coming in 2 hours early on days when "real" life doesn't get in the way. I'm hoping for another update tomorrow.
The comments definitely help with the motivation.
Stay tuned
