Bondo's 1/6scale Scaler/Monster Truck - 10.08.2012, 05:14 PM

I must start off saying this project is inspired by a forum friend some of us know well, "NickRummy". Thanks to him and his kind heartedness he supplied me with the SIlverado body and the TXT chassis.

THX Nick !



Electronics to be used;



Castle Mamba Monster ESC

Castle 10Amp BEC

JR 8911HV Servo (Torque: 470 oz-in (2S Li-Po)Speed: .12 sec/60 (2S Li-Po battery)

Summit Transmission with servo actuated 2 speed

Emaxx motor plate

DUAL 770 sized Brushed motors

3s possibly 4s powered depending on final gear ratio which is still in the planning process



I will be scratch building my own scale axles (Of Nicks Design)from steel and using Losi Muggy Differentials, Losi 8 buggy CVD's, Losi 8 buggy Front and rear axle carriers. The axles will strongly resemble the Blackwell axles when complete aside from them not being a true "top loader" design.

I also will be making a scratch build chassis and 4 link suspension, the chassis will be started on and based from a Tamiya TXT chassis.



Thats it for now, I hope to be starting this project soon. Replacing some parts on my air compressor and the weather turning a little more co-habitable is whats holding up the beginning.



Here's a few pics of the body I'll be starting the project with, I will be repainting it with Base/Coat-Clear/Coat with a wicked Red and Ghost True Flames(the plan so far?) I also will be adding a tons of LED's






Yes, thats a Losi XXL behind the body.





My Inspiration, Nicks Beasty in all it's glory



I retired from RC, now life is all about guns and long range shooting.

You and Nick are killing me with the large scale solid axles. A similar concept has been a back burner (more like back of my head) project of mine for a long time now. Still can't wait to see what you guys come up with.

Did you read the first post? He's building his own axles.

You can get an idea of how the axles will be made by checking out Nick Rummy's build here- http://www.beatyourtruck.com/forum/s...-Monster-Truck

Start at the last page and go backwards through the thread to see the axles. The first 14 pages don't have anything to do with the axles.
