Homemade Brushless Baja 5B style Buggy - 02.09.2011, 08:32 PM

Ok guy's i built this about 5 months ago.

It's based on a Muggy with a stretched chassis to meet 1/5th scale length, I picked up a Muggy as a roller and the idea started from there.

ESC = Hobbywing 150amp
Motor = CC 1717
lipo's = 3s 5000mah in series






And this is where it all started......

That thing is wicked! Looks like 2wd from the photos, why not 4wd? I know the Baja is only 2wd but with the muggy platform why not? Nonetheless a great job.

Starting to take some shape at this stage


The muggy link is as you can see very thin and easy to bend so i made my own link, much bigger.


The rear tower was very short so i got one that straightens the shocks out

Looks like its 4WD to me. You can see the rear drive shaft and the extended front drive shaft.

The front alloy prop shaft did't last long so a 12mm steel one now sits in it's place.


Got a 33kg servo that can handle up to a 3s lipo from HK for about $80 delivered.
