1.9 tubed 40

Post  azwa on Sat Dec 11, 2010 6:01 pm

i started this a while ago,
made a chassis out of 11x11 box
heated & bent then sliced it up the guts
worked alright then me being me decided to hack it up & tube it bounce
its around halfway there,but i've probably spent 5 hrs on this thing in the last 6 months.
she will be runninga;
a rooster crawler & 35t
into a hpi reduction g/box
into a wheely king(g/box) t/case
axial diffs with 4 link,
90mm ultimate scale shocks on full droop,
silver sunnys & half worn simex pedes
with a trimmed up body.
there is still a bit of barwork left to do.



















cheers Aaron.

allright update time i've mounted the motor gearbox & t/case.
driving it last night to give it a test run
& lets just say click goes the w/king gears
so i think i'll be using the axial g/box for the transfer,
its alot more compact anyway.

expecting to hit the trails with this thing sooner rather than later bounce

the 40 is coming along nicely mate top work. that bar work is a grade for mine mate. very well thought out, tough but not excessive Very Happy

i rekon if you leave the bonnet sittin flush and manage a bonnet scoop, for all them big 40's runnin 308's and 350's Laughing that would look wicked mate. im not sure on the logistics of it all but just my 2bob
