Built and running

Saturday is the day I get some time to test this thing, I had 10 mins in the dark tonight with it on my rockpile and was suitably impressed.. ground clearance is amazing !

I want to mess with shock positions and links etc

Once the minor tweaks are sorted, this chassis will be a winner for sure Twisted Evil






I just need to make some proper panels including sides as the ones on now are just cut down from the V1..

You can see my front turned tubes and new Axial C Hubs in the last picture

I have to say, it looks fucking mean too Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

I was thinking the same thing!! I was wondering to myself, "Why does Martin's rig always look so damn good"? I think it's the pointy panels.

Very much off topic, but this what i've been up to this weekend



As most of you probably already know, I'm into motorcycle trials Twisted Evil
Well I got the new bicycle so I can spend yet more time with my boy.
I rode this thing solid for 4 hours yesterday and I can hardly move a muscle today Shocked
It's a lot of fun though..

I posted this video on a trials forum and got some very nice replies, which surprised me a lot, take a look..

What you probably cant make out is a UGC sticker on the headtube Twisted Evil

The berg is on a diet
No pics yet cause its still in bits and waiting for parts, dlux wheels, Viper Lite, alloy balls for rod ends,new CI foams and some thin panels

So far I've drilled the gears, had the tubes turned down, swapped most of the steel hardware for alloy, shaved the donas, ground the gear cases as much as I dare, swapped out top ti links for alloy.

At this point rtr I'm just sub 5lbs
With all the other parts in place I should be somewhere near 4.5lbs Evil or Very Mad

I shall try my best, I can feel the pressure building already,
Will need to take something to calm my nerves this year, my trigger finger was way to jerky in the morning last year
Something herbal I think

Viper Lite showed up earlier this week Twisted Evil

I've been busy putting this thing on a diet, this is what I've done so far....

Tubes machined down
Gear cases ground
Gears drilled
Gone back to ally top links
Swapped most hardware to ally
Revo rod ball swapped for ally
Panels now .2mm (still bolted on Twisted Evil) no paint, too heavy and it falls off anyways Razz
ERIK D cf wheels
Electrics shortened
Sedonas shaved
CI closed cell foams

I'm at 4lb 10 with 3 1/4 oz of knuckle weight each side

I still need to shave the skid, take some more off the rear gear case and play with the lower front links

I'm happy with how it drives, pulled lines I've struggled with for ages today, made light work of everything I've got around the house Cool

I'll settle with a weight of around 4lb 8oz to 4lb 10oz, it feels amazing
My balance point is just forward of my front lower link mounts

I may go back to a .75mm panel on the roof as the .2mm one sometimes struggles to hold up and gets ripped off when correcting from upside down Laughing

A few shots from earlier today...
got rained off, freak flooding nearby,, we've had the wettest June for 20years







I was a bit sceptical of the lite weight truck idea, but since trying it, I have seen the way forward.. it's awesome Smile
I dont use that word very often either

I've still got a tonne of stuff to try still as well

Thought I'd get back to my build thread rather than clogging up the Stingray one.

Anyways, I've been in touch and dropped some money to Erik D for new tubes, gearboxes, rear shafts, bully universal, Ti links and link mounts
I've got some bully knuckles and hexes coming from RC3WD, electrics smash is nearly done, making some new 3/16" ally spacers for the cab, new servo horn, new drag link, new rod ends, new lipos, shocks having some work too, have I missed anything.

I've just recently re kitted out my workstation in the garage, and its given me fresh incentive to do some work.

It's going to be a while before its done, but there's no rush as its still snowing here.
