This event has been extremely fun running closed courses locally. I’ve been running 2.2 straight axle.
But now I really think it’s time for a 1.9 straight axle rig as well!
i rounded up a pile of parts in the RC room to throw together and hopefully have a strong competitor.
I’m starting with a custom set of steel frame rails and mating those to a 1/12 HPI Trophy truck cage. I would normally braze my own cage but I’ve had this cage sitting around forever and I like the look of them.
Custom brazed 3/16 CHROMOLY shock towers F/R as well as CHROMO bumpers
Also using built Dlux SCX10 housings with the bigger bearing.
These are built XR10 width with HD gears Incision spools. Also VP clamping CHUBBIES and scale knuckles.
Built VP TRANS w/BWD motor plate.
I’ll be using talking arms front and rear with KING shocks from the Bomber.
I’m using Methods with POISON SPYDER rings and CI foams and the 1.9 COMPASS balloons for tires!!!
MMP with Pro4
