I wish I would have been a bit more traditional. This is the hardest build I've attempted. Tons of hacking, chopping, tearing apart, reassembling and copious use of adult words.Brotha, you just designed a completely new RC.
Trying to mix SCX24 and AX24 stuff really caused mucho issues, as well as getting the body to fit over everything. FINALLY got everything to play well together. No binding or interference problems now! I'm disappointed I couldn't use the cool exhausts, no clearance to turn the front wheels.
Getting everything to fit was a bear. I had to decase the RX and remove the potting on the Bastens Quadsteer. Battery had to go on top (not happy with that) but there was no other place to put it. Cut all the wiring to fit and dressed them as best I could. Made the roof able to pivot up to access the inner guts.
Stuff left to do...
Clearcoat the body and add tinted windows on the sides and in back
Replace the shocks with oil filled internal springs
Go back through and Loctite purple all the metal to metal stuff
All things considered I'm OK with it. I've ordered an Axial Power Wagon in green to do a scale build, got some crazy ideas for that one.
I'll do a full parts list as soon as I figure out what I actually used.
Now I've got to come up with a name for this one (all my rigs have names). Any suggestions?
