Question Ummm...who in the world made this Chassis & this Suspension? - 03.24.2012, 09:16 PM

Does anyone have a clue?

The Chassis looks like either an Early Prototype or a knock-off of a Dace Predator and the Suspension looks like either a Really Early Prototype or a knock-off of a UE Racer-X.

The Front Lower-Arms look like Dace Arms, the Bulks look like Dace Bulks, the Towers are UE EXT Towers, the Shocks are UE Supershocks, the Tank is a UE/Ofna Tank, the Skids are HCR Ti Skids and the Transmission is equipped with a Strobe Slipper, Strobe Sprong & UE Plastic 51T Spur...so it DOES have some REAL parts on it, but what are, and who made the Chassis & Suspension?

Maybe he made them himself... Doesn't look like anything I have ever seen.

Too bad you couldn't see the chassis better in the pic.

The suspension is Integy. Its a copy of UE. It made Robin furious. I don't know about the chassis.

I know, I tried to find more pics, but it was just the one on Google Image Search...and I guess the owner could have made it himself. I would like to see the knuckles...especially the top of the front knuckles, to see
if they use an upper pillow-ball or a turnbuckle. I'd also like to see the chassis without all the parts on it, to see exactly what it looks like.

Hell, maybe the Chassis & Suspension are both early prototypes or versions of intejunk's rip-off of the UE Racer-X Suspension and an unknown rip-off of Dace's Predator Chassis. Once they released the suspension and people bought it, they went ahead and made the almost exact rip-off of the UE Racer-X...and something I have always wondered, since the knuckles were like 99.9% identical, why didn't they make the a-arms at least 99.9% identical as well? Maybe they wanted people to actually know the difference between them and the real Racer-X or something, who knows...all I know is, it sucks that they ripped Robin off like that, as well as all the other companies that they ripped off! It also sucks, and I hate it, when you see someone showing off their truck, listing all the parts on it, and then calling the intejunk "type 3 pro suspension" that's on it a real Racer-X Suspension...UGH!, I hate that, almost as bad as when people call a truck that's "all aluminum" a Supermaxx, even if it's all intejunk and/or has NO UE parts on it!

Another sad thing is when people buy Real UE A-Arms and put them on the intejunk Racer-X Rip-Off Knuckles and then sell it as a *REAL* UE Racer-X Suspension...and since the knuckles are so similar, it makes it hard to tell that's it's not a REAL UE Racer-X Suspension.

Ok, enough ranting from me...my apologies.

Not exactly...the suspension in the above picture looks NOTHING like the Racer-X Rip-Off that intejunk made, that's why I posted the picture and asked if anyone knew what it was. The above suspension is completely different than anything I have ever seen, and I can't find any other pictures, information or a name of it...and like I said, the Integy rip-off suspensions looks ABSOLUTELY NOTHING like the suspension on the truck in the picture above.

Here are all the Integy A-Arms except the upper-rears (which don't look like what's on the above truck anyway):

Oh okay. Anyway I've seen this first picture in question that you posted and I had some reason to think that it was integy but I could be wrong, and it looks like I am. Maybe Billytrucks123?

Whatever it might be IT SUCKS...haha It is not UE so I am biased on my outlook.....

The rear end looks ok but the fugly looking front arms going in both directions pretty much ruins it.

Yea, I agree, whoever made it definetly doesn't have an eye for looks, and maybe not even function...heh! Even intejunk would have (did) make a better looking version/rip-off/knock-off!

I believe it was "rooster" from the UE forum. He made them himself with either help or maybe it was just permission of Dale and Robin. Search over there, bet you'll find something about it.
