little bit of resurrection but i still have my rally car going, this time electric though as the nitro is a bit of a pita to haul around/play with.
this my low bux low precision conversion to electric for $20. which is more than it needed to be, just couldnt get the alu in less than 3ft lol.
hacksaw to cut, dremel to clean up.
drilled new holes in the two speed bell for mounting standard spurs. just use one of the input shaft bearings to center it, tighten them down and its good to go. tighten down the two speed all the way so its always engaged.
i also used the stock shocks, but cut the inside plastic in half, filed it down so it fit right at the bottom of the shock body. they leak, but only the old oring in there. with new orings shouldnt leak much.
gained 5mm more shock travel, and it can reach the lowest point without using the body mounts for shock mounts.
running really soft team magic springs to start out, might upgrade to 10th buggy springs in the future.
Car handles like shit on the road with the rideheight and tires, goes pretty good off road and the 8 turn motor im using is enough to bbq the tires at any speed ha.
gotta work on setup now. make an onroad car work more like an offroad one.
