My new Rig

Post  blacklion on Mon Feb 14, 2011 1:56 am

HI I'm Matt, U may remember me from such sites as the crawlpit, and such comps called Qrock.
Any way here's a pic of the wheely king based rig I bought at the last qrock round off wideload, I believe scottb was the original builder.
I'v taken the 2.2 wheels and tyres off and replaced them with axial 1.9 bead lock rims, I ordered a set of baja claws and snorkel from rc4wd last night. I'm thinking about going a nissan king cab body if it fits over the high wheely king gearbox. If it doesn't fit then I can get my hands on a shorty cruiser hard body cheap.
As soon as this stupid computer wants to upload the photo i'll post it up.

Here's an update on progress, I ended up getting a 40 ser hard body... I sat it on the chassis last night to see how it looks, But I'm going to wait until my tires are here and fitted up then I'll mount it and do any mods to the chassis so it looks good and in proportion. Unfortunately I can't use the interior that came in it due to the wheely king gearbox being so high. Any Idea on what gearbox I could maybe use that mounts fairly low? axial maybe? losie? But other wise, If the tire get here in soon so i can hit the trails soon.





I also got this body yesterday, It's also a hard body, but it's wheel base slighty too short and it's a bit narrow for the diffs... still a nice body though.



I just noticed it's cut a bit off 1 side of my pics but u get the idea..

Hey Matty, good to see this is coming along noicely...

For the gear box, best best would be axial. Similar ratio to the stock WK and more compact.

Losi's no good as it hasnt go enough reduction in it (close to 1:1).

Another option would be a traxxas mini revo/slash/rallye gear box. They are nice and compact. Plus strong as ####.

A mate who works at toyworld.. he had 2 but took 1 for himself... Couldn't tell you what brand it is.. And i'm pretty sure you could also get a jeep body.

Yea i'm gonna run the cruiser body without the interior for now, as u said i'll change it when money permits... yup still have the outlaw, just playing with shock and spring set up at the moment. 1 of these days Im going to get a 2.2 but until then i'm gonna play around with these two, I just hope my baja claws turn up this week for the comp next sunday.

Just an update on how things are going with the 40, The body is mounted to the chassis via piano hinge so it's nice and strong, I've started wiring up the led light kit and mounting the leds in the light buckets, I just need to lengthen the wires to the h/lights and spot lights..

Had a bit of a quiet day at work today so I had a bit of a play around with an idea using a bit of alloy 25mm C channel.. version 1.0, I cut it all out and got a mate around the corner from work to tig it up then i hit it up on the linisher.

But I just didn't think it looked quite right, just a bit too wide from top to bottom..
So I got a piece of 20mm C section and started all over again. Version 2.0, this time i even folded a bit around the side to fill in the gap.

I think that looks a lot better scale wise, We'll find out tomorrow when i get it back from the welder..
Might even add a hoop see how I go.. need some where to mount spotties.
