View Full Version : scale xxx-t CORR truck
08.03.2009, 02:04 PM
i am making a CORR truck out of an old xxx-t that i had laying around. i am using a wheely king axle 4 linked to the back of the xxx-t chassis cut in half.
wheely king axle
tlt upper/lower link mounts
probably a sidewinder combo
does anyone know of any wheels that look kind of realistic that will fit the front on a xxx-t? i like the rpm revolver wheels but i dont think they make them for the xxx-t.

use the wheels from the sc10, looks good so far :)

Will the sc10 wheels fit on the front of the xxx-t? And will they fit the wheely king axle?

Building a tube frame to mount shocks on?

No tube frame, I am going to cut up a piece of aluminum that will mount to where the upper links are mounted to. But a tube frame would be cool

Get the idea from RCCrawler.com? There pretty badass. I was going to build one at one time but never got around to it.

yep,thats where i got the idea. any one have any ideas on how i could shorten the width of the front of the xxx-t?

Shorter arms ?
Possibly the XXX4 arms will work ?
Looks dam cool so far, anxious to see this take shape. Rock on.

Here is you a soon to be option from RC4WD. Uses slash front end parts and a Axial tranny and WK axle. There alsl making there own axle for it. Its going to be nice like all the other stuff but probably isnt going to be cheap.

Man, don't I feel ahead of the game :wink:
That one's getting reworked this week.
Your truck looks like it should come out great :party: The Wheely King axle is IMO a far better choice than the Axial axle. To get Slash/Slayer width I used STRC axle wideners and Slayer wheels on STRC 14mm hex adapters. This might not work out right for you because SC10 wheels are the only option that might work for you without modifications. Unless you can find a company (Jconcepts?) that makes wheels of the same style for the SC10 and Slayer?
The only constructive criticism I have to offer is on your chassis upper link mounting points, that might hold for a crawler but you'll want some bracing there for a truck which will be doing 30+MPH.

i got the ax-10 trans yesterday.heres a pic of how its all gona be layed out. that is not the esc or motor i will be using. and there will be bracing where the upper links are. maybe i could use wheels from the losi strike or the losi desert truck?

More pics! Liking the idea so far, but I'm wondering how you're planning on mounting rear shocks.
08.23.2009, 06:15 PM
right now im cutting up some aluminum with my dremel for shock mounts
08.25.2009, 11:48 PM
heres a pic of what the shocks will be mounted to

That's very cool. are you going to make your own driveshaft?
08.26.2009, 12:38 AM
nope, im gona use one of my left over revo drive shafts with the stock revo yoke on one end which is 6mm bore for the wk axle and on the other end ill put an old e-maxx trans side drive yoke on it which is 5mm bore for the ax-10 trans.

Lookin good! I hope you have a good connection on those plates to the chassis. There's going to be some serious force there.
Have you looked on www.rcshortcourse.com ? Lots of good info there. :smile:
08.26.2009, 12:31 PM
ill look around that website. for those plates i think i will screw some of those steering servo stand offs or mounts or whateva there called and then screw em into the bottom of the chassis
