This is my V2 BEETLEJUICE:

ThunderPower 3s/11.1v 1320mah Lipo
JR DS8611 Steering Servo
CrawlerDesignWorks OTA/BTA Steering Kit
VP Knuckles

Nova's Ark 2-Stage Foams
Panther Tires

Mayhem Engineering Wheels:

She's a roller at this point

Thanks..................check it now.




Got the updated sideplates and angled skidplate. Works so much better with my T1E high clearance rear links. Has few more link & shock mount positions as well.

Yes you really should. Maybe you could catch an event. Somethings always going on. It's been busy the past few months.

We have event #4 of our Fall series on Saturday Dec. 5th. And the following Saturday on Dec. 12th we head to Stone Mtn, GA for the @nd Annual Crawl 4 Kids.

Well the BeetleJuiceV2 is now a V3 with a new steering kit to boot.

I was able to pick up the smaller lipo's I wanted, Hyperion G3 850mah/3S lipo for $16.89 each. I thought that was a helluva deal.

Looking good but you need to get the battery fwd - I'm adapting a t1e battery skid to fit the v3 - it's worth doing.

You mean like this ??






____________________________________________


I've went round and round over keeping the battery mounted forward. And I do agree it is is more than likely best place for it. However, I have watched Rooster put his V1 Rockshow in the finals at LRC & Crawlin4Kids with a battery much larger than mine on his rear axle tray.

But yeah, I know better.

Yup that looks good. Still wondering about cutting over from t1e - I think they will both perform well.

Need to decide if I go stick and dual fxrs or stay with punk dig.

Decisions decisions.

Changes to the V3 BeetleJuice - 02.06.2010, 06:39 PM

I have made a few minor changes to my BeetleJuice to lower the overall COG. Small changes to the shock mounting position allowed all fours wheel to touch when upside down now. Shorter Traxxas upper links in the rear lowered cog by less clock.

I also added some fresh HW Fantom motors and 86JeepDesigns Steering.
