Here's a current pic of my mrc based scaler:




Next mods will be cvds and a new body.

Not sure. When I have my mind set I end up changing it. But I got a few weeks to make a decision.

The truck will be getting a major makeover soon hopefully in time for QRock. It will be getting a 4 link conversion using RC Bros plates, a full size servo conversion, a new body, cvds in the front diff and new esc/motor combo.

The only thing with the zuk body; is after looking at nathan's (bazuky) truck, I might have to shoe goo some styrene to the inside of the body because they're thinner than usual.

Booyah...yeah i noticed they were back in stock..
best of luck it gets here before Qrock man.. cheers

With the programming card, make sure you have the one with the right front on it. Hobbywing/turnigy/yeah racing use the same programming card for theit plane, boat & car ESC's and theres different faces for each one.
You want the bottom one listed in here (clicky).

Yeha that for the basic one. You've got more adjustment than whats on that faceplate. Just print off the bottom faceplate & you'll have all the adjustments.

The saga continues:



Axial servo plate drilled, countersunk, notched and mounted. I notched the back to clear the front of the 3 link. Test fitting of a servo reveals that I'll have to notch the front crossmember to clear the servo horn during articulation or raise the suspension back up a bit. Its good to get the fire in the belly to get the truck finished. I won't bother 4 linking the suspension as I just can't be assed. Once the motor and esc are in and sorted, it will get a very 'left field' body and probably a change of wheels and rubber and I'll happily call it done.
