Ah, I think the body was hitting the wheels and not the floor, my mistake.

I wonder if you could double up the shocks, so there are 2 on each rocker?...

@Overdriven
Where can I ready about your project? What springs you have mounted, same like me? I can preload it, so there is no negative travel anymore. But it is like a onroader. I have a video, I will look if it is youtubeable.

The problem is: in the front is no room for modifications. It would hit the motor every-time.

I will make a technical picture to show the geometry problem :D
Thanks

Titan

The thread is here http://www.rc-monster.com/forum/showthread.php?t=20579 Ive made some changes since then though. I now run a dual battery setup, with the packs mounted next to the transmission just behind the steering servo. I also welded up a rollcage to help support the body in a rollover and provides a place to mount the side body posts since I went with a stock Baja 5t body. I did add traxxas aluminum pillow balls, rocker posts, tie rods + pushrods, and ball ends. I forget the spring specs at the moment, I think they're Traxxas black all around. I'll post some pics and exact spring specs when I get home.

This is what mine looks like now, with the electronics robbed from it.



The battery packs sit on either side of the transmission in between the side body posts now. The springs are Traxxas Tan (4.1) up front and Black (4.4) out back, with P2 rockers. I'm tempted to step up to some stiffer springs and giving her another go. This project kinda stalled on me due to other vehicles that are more fun to drive really fast on the street and yard in front of my house. Currently the handling is alot better with less body roll than before and seems less than in your videos. I think thats mostly due to the sway bars though.

Yes, I found your project. Traxxas Tan and Black is a joke to me (; I had to use blue and purple (5.5 and 6.4). At the end I ordered a more stiff spring than purple.



The number is smaller. In my hand it feels stiffer. Video 1-7 is with long travel rockers, this makes it extremly "weak?" .

greets titan

PS I will add the sway bar in the rear and make a video. Ohh I should preorder alu rockers to hold the stress...

As far as the rockers go I don't think aluminum is necessary as I've heard of only 1 person breaking a rocker. You might want to try p2's instead of the long travel though. The long travel raises the truck up, but also provides the suspension alot of leverage against the shocks. Switching from p1 to p2 made a big difference in the handling for me. And I am able to maintain good ground clearance, close to what you have now, by moving the pushrods to the inner holes on the arms. I just need stiffer springs to support the weight with the electronics on it. This is assuming you're not perfectly happy with the handling and want to change it of course. Hope this helps if you do.

Video 7 and 8 are already with P2 rockers (stock). I throw the long travel already away. (;

I meaned I need alu rockers because of a original like sway bar. The rear one is fixed with M3 screws to the plastic. My springs are much stiffer than stiffest traxxas on (blue/purple).

How did you get the wattage/rpm to show like that?

Or.. how do you get to see the report of a drive on your Castle Link? Do you need to activate something?

Great truck.

I used a EagleTree Logger to collect the informations. There is a software to play the log in numbers - naked. I record this numbers and syncronize it with the video of the drive. Than you can see the DriveVideo together with electric informations. :)

greets titan
more questions? no problem.
