Back last fall I got back into the RC hobby again with a project build on my first monster truck project that most of you probably remember. While I have not finished that one yet (will this summer) I decided to start another build so I started this build project back at the end of January. The reason I started this one was because the first truck is more of a scale build, something that I will enjoy but won't want to bash/damage because of the detail work in it. So I decided to do a 2nd truck build and build this one with the most durable hardcore bashing parts available on the market today. This one is going to be fast, light, and durable.
Made the chassis for this one myself out of carbon fiber plate. Upper 4-links I made out of solid aluminum rod drilled & tapped. Lower links are CNC'd pieces. Rather than buy used axles for this one I went ahead and located all the part numbers for all the axles pieces and build the axles myself from the ground up so they are all new. Has full bearing set in the axles, Thundertech CVD's in front and straight solid axle in rear. Went with a Dennis Anderson King Sling body and added the scoop to the front of the body. Put some new Jconcepts tires on some blacked out wheels. Electronics I'm installing are two Castle brushless 5700k sensored motors, two Castle Mamba-x ESC's, and a 3S 5400mah 90c 135a lipo battery.
These are some pics from the past few months. I finished the airbrush work on the body last month and will post a pic of that when I get time. This one should be done and running in the next week or two most likely.
