I finally finished upgrading the new Typhon I won on the Arrma Forum, to a basher. Literally just finished and had a few mins to run it as it was already dark. It ran nicely! Didn't run it enough to even worry about temps.

Process was a PITA, mainly due to user error. 🤷‍♂️🤦‍♂️
  • Stripped a wheel hex set screw
  • Put new center diff together and all filled up with oil and forgot to put the new bearing on
  • Put HR aluminum gear box on front diff.
  • Put rear diff together, remembered bearing and screwed all on rig.....turned around and saw the other HR aluminum gear box case sitting there. Took it all apart.
  • Stoopid Basher bumper came with wrong part that was missing 2 holes for the spring. Had to order another.

Tires banged into bumper, so had to cut 1/2" off both sides of bumper. Turned out well.

Wanted to raise the body for clearance, room for fans to breath, and wanted to install the Noto6s center roll hoop. So installed body mounts in rear and front from the Noto6s. The front one I just cut one end flat, drilled a hole and screwed it on like the stock one. Worked great! Came across a YT vid from a year ago by Edough about that!

It was all worth it (so far!)! I got plenty of juice left to run some more tomorrow and really test him out!! :LOL:😁✌️

Here's the deets:
  • Stock motor/esc/shocks/shock oil
  • Diff oil: 60/500/30
  • R6FG receiver
  • DS3235-PRO servo
  • Arrma 25T Aluminum servo horn
  • Aluminum servo arm
  • Aluminum servo mount
  • Aluminum motor fan mount with 2x 40mm motor fans
  • M2C F/R center drive shafts
  • M2C F/R center chassis braces
  • Replaced motor mount screws with 3mm flange socket head screws from McMasters-Carr
  • Fast Eddy Bearings (including steering)
  • HR F/R aluminum gear box case (still need to order the "other side" of it)
  • HR F/R center sway bar mount
  • Arrma metal center diff case
  • GPM aluminum center diff mount
  • RPM wing mounts
  • Noto6s F/R body posts
  • Noto6s center roll hoop
  • Arrma rear metal skid plate
  • Arrma super basher front bumper
  • Arrma rear mud guards
  • Hobbypark 17mm hex extenders
  • Kraton F/R stub axles
  • Kraton F/R hubs
  • Kraton F/R spiral cut diffs and input gear
  • dBoots Backflip-LP tires
  • Changed pinion gear from stock 17T to 14T

Congrats on the win. Car looks great, I ran my typhon that configuration for a long time. It now has Mojave arms, cvds, dogbones and linkage to make it slightly wider. Also run the smaller proline badlands mx 2.8 on it. They are a 1/10 scale mt tire which can take a 17mm hub. Mine came with 17mm but now pl makes you buy the adapters or they might come with them.

Thanks! Yeah, I was considering the wider stance with the Mojave arms, but decided to start with this. I guess like you did! 😂😁✌️
