Dude your truck looks fabulous. Harold you always seem to come up with som pretty cool projects. I like the fact that you have found some very nice aluminum features for this truck. I like that battery platform. Is that a normal feature for the LST? One could make a similar plate for just about any vehicle. So how does it run? Good job Harold.

Do you think it needs a bit of colour? Maybe some blue arms or something

Very nice Harold! Why did you put steering posts at the rear? Actually, nevermind about the extra bits, go bend it!

I'm glad you brought up the batteries, Jerry. The battery set up certainly isn't a normal feature for the LST. The Losi electric kit mounts the batteries behind the tranny and motor, making it wheelie happy. Most home made electric conversions mount the batteries fore of the tranny, but it still doesn't look good.

I like symmetry in my builds, and wanted a lower cog than chassis mounted batteries. I also wanted aluminum battery boxes since this was an all aluminum build.

All the battery boxes are is a 6 inch piece of 2 inch aluminum angle. I mounted them on top of the stock LST lower chassis plate using existing holes, and then added a second stock LST lower chassis plate and sandwiched the battery boxes between them. Then I prettied up the outside by rounding the corners and cutting out shapes that mimic the cutouts on the LST bumpers and chassis rails.

It runs like any 6s brushless beast Jerry- Insane!!!!

Thank you! And haha yeah, stupid first gen LST's and the extra bits. Well at least mine are pretty aluminum extra bits. ...... ......... ........ wait a minute...... ...........

I just this second realized that I could easily make this 4 wheel steering. It has the cut out in the chassis for a servo, the posts in the chassis rails for steering arms, and as mentioned the original LST runs turnbuckles on 4 corners.

All I need is a set of steering arms and to swap a-arms from side to side.... hmmmmm......

Thanks Harold. With your added description it all makes sense to me now. I really like the way you put it all together. I may want to use that tecnique on a future porject now that I see how you did it. Like you I prefer semmitry in my projects as well. It brings a look of balance and even increased performance even if they really do not. So I love how you made the battery trays look like part of amanufacturers stock design. Very nice. Another successful build young man.

Harold the truck looks sweet. Im not gonna try to steer you away from four wheel steering as it would be cheap for you to try, but I modded my XXL for it and it isn't meant to be bro... Just my.02
