Well after some doing I've finally got the wife excited about her earthquake. It's nearly done just waiting on a new body and a radio system to be complete. We just got the body mounts installed and she can't wait till the rest gets here

Beautiful Idaho.
That's awesome. I've been working on a Proline 2009 Jeep Wrangler body for the wifes Everest 10 Crawler and she is loving it and excited also. Its always good to keep the wife happy...:)

Got the new receiver today. Got it in and bound. New body from a volcano is on as well. Waiting for the pull starter to get here then we can finally fire this up

Got everything installed on the quake. Put a new plug in and made sure the igniter was charged. It just doesn't want to start. At first the pull starter wouldn't grab often now it turns it over every pull but still wont start. No clue as to what's going on. It has great compression and new fuel lines. I'm stumped

Have you tried pre-heating the engine with a heat source like a hot blow dryer ,I noticed the state you live in ,it may
just be the cold!

I'm trying to start it inside with the slider open so it should be plenty warm but I'll try that

So we've been having issues with the nitro motor and have decided to start an electric conversion on it. Got it stripped and ready for the new parts. I ordered a goolrc brushless setup a new pinion and the earthquake 8e transmission with motor mount. Looks like it all will drop in and be an easy conversion I'm leaving the nitro upper deck after modifying it to make room for a battery. I'm hoping to get the parts and get the conversion done in the next week or so. Should be fun and I'll keep you guys updated

Got rid of the nitro components. Decided to convert it to brushless. I ordered an earthquake 8e transmission and motor mount from Amazon. Those will be here monday. That was the last thing I needed. Once its here I should hopefully be able to work the bugs out and go for a test run.

Just got the transmission in now to work on the mounts and bracing. Did a quick bench test and it works great. Need a new steering servo but other than that I'm happy with it

That's definitely the next thing is a little box for the reciever @cbaker65. Just wanted to run it and see how it worked together. It's been sitting as a roller/parts stash for about 8 months. Just finally had the gumption to finish it lol
