That chassis looks pretty good. Now it just needs brushless, lipo, and a centre diff, but that's only once you start wanting more.

haha thanks guys...

lipos BLs and center diff? :013: ...and....erm...... build a truck that almost everyone here has??? haha JK dudes!:027:

BLs and lipos rock i;m sure but i just dun have the budget for that sorta stuff right now...

well ok, a center diff did come with this 1/8 buggy chassis but without a super duper powered BL, the center diff option just wouldn't work...

besides, this project was just using some odds and ends that i had left over from my nitro txt project....and i did happen to have a spare emaxx tranny...so...there you have it...

and

since it won't be a very fast truck....i've decided to call this a tuggie..like in tug boat!!:005: :005:

i've only just finished fabbing a rear bulkhead brace tonight.

what's left is to lighten the chassis as much as possible....

Something a bit different, especially since its made from odds & ends. How goes the NitroTXT-1 anyway?

Would that race in truggy class or MT class. Im guessing MT cuz of the tranny and high motor mount.


I can't decide if its more fun
to make it...
or break it...
