Scale F350

Post  monsterf350 on Fri Oct 07, 2011 10:51 am

Hi guys
Just having a query
Im buliding up my f truck and was wanting to know what materials people use when altering the hard body's. Reason Im asking as I want to cut out the floor on the tray of the truck and drop it down and use some sort of material to recreate a deeper tray body instead of the 1cm deep tray that it is at the mo.

Also do you use normal real car bog and hardener or is there something light to use to finish it off ?
I was also considering making some sort of inner guards on it as well but not sure how the hell im gonna do that.

Any tips or tech's would be great.

G'day Nobbsy!

I was thinking of using black spray can lids and cut the bottom third off for an inner guard.

well if you include the clearence lights it will be about 33 leds hahaha

just ebayed a relocated motor mount which puts the motor where the servo's are so have to change that all around as well as it raises the gearbox 20mm.

The Mamba Max pro is sitting waiting to go in as soon as the LRP x12 21.5 turn brushless turns up.

THIS THING IS COSTING ME MORE THAN MY RACE TRUCK HAHAHAHAH


p.s. Hey KAK wanna team up for the december hill climb and winch challenge ??

There is no winch in the world that will pull your fat arse up a hill...

So I'm in if you're the winch truck!

Ok some pics

Post  monsterf350 on Mon Oct 10, 2011 5:44 am

Ok so i guess i better start posting some pics.

The 4 link is a custom setup that took me a few attempts to get it but im still not quite happy with the front end. Im probably going to change it again as the uprights for the top links foul with the springs of the shocks. Thinking of using shorter rods and move the uprights back.

Ok well here is a list of what I have done so far.

Full ball bearing kit
RC4wd Scale dual spring shocks
Proline 1.9" weighted rims
Proline Super swampers tyres
4 link is a mix of ax10 rods and other parts from kit and LHS
Adapter gearbox plate (puts motor where the servo's used to go and raises gearbox 20mm (in the mail)
Castle Creations Mamba Max Pro ESC
LRP 21.5 turn stock spec Brushless Motor (in the Mail)
Tamiya TLU - 02 light unit
Tamiya TLU - 01 light unit x2
roughly about 40 LED's yep lol
RC4wd Bulldog winch (in the mail)

Once the stuff in the mail arrives I will get some more pics up. Im going to leave the tray bed alone because to make it a deep bed would mean having to change the shock mounting point at the top and I have seen how its done and to me it looks goofy

PS Yep there is rust on some bolts thats because it does get driven in think mud and dirty water No shelf Queen here

Just a update

Ive ditched my home made 4 link for a junfac one. Also added the junfac steering servo setup. Founbd a kit on ebay that raises the gearbox 20mm and another kit that turns the motor around and puts it at the front of the gearbox not ontop of it. AZWA did some awesome work on the bak and fender bashers and sliders. Nearly have all lights running except the three on the fron plus the five on the roll bar. Still soucing swithcing units for those as well as roof clearence lights and side clearence lights. It will be there at the comp.
