Steps 1-13: Axles

Let's begin




Parts needed for this step






Metal balls given to the first batch of BOMs




The well labeled hardware bags. Wish they would've went a step further and grouped the hardware by steps as well.






Ready to begin




Diff gears finished




Pinion Gear side of the axle








The other side of the axle




All greased up




C-Hubs going on






Front CVDs






Knuckles






Link mounts






Time for the rear axle


















Front and rear axles all done

Steps 14-19 + 25: Transmission

We start with the B-bag.




Step 14 parts




Assembled gears




Parts for the next steps




Assembled and greased up




Spur gear goes on. They use stacked conical washers instead of a spring for the slipper. Directions say to fully tighten the lock nut, and then loosen by about a quarter turn. Here's how it looks.






Parts for the next step.. More e-clips yay...




Assembled gears...




Skipping to step 25 like new2rocks did.




Greased up. I wonder how the 2-speed option setup would look in this spot. That empty space has to be for something.




Transmission complete.

Steps 20-23: Links

This is going to be a pretty short step/post.


Bag of parts for these steps




Starting the front lower links






Front upper link






Rear lower links






Rear upper links

Steps 24 + 26-29: Chassis

Time to move onto the chassis. For this step, I also used the following non-kit items...

Turnigy MG959 V2 Servo (available on eBay)
Yeah Racing Hackmoto 550 35T Brushed Motor (available on eBay)
Yeah Racing Aluminum 540 Motor Spacer Heatsink (available on eBay)
Boom Racing 25T Alloy Servo Horn


These are the parts needed for the battery tray




I'll be using the Turnigy MG959 V2 Servo and a Boom Racing 25T Servo Horn








Servo mounted onto the battery tray/servo mount assembly






These are the parts needed to start putting the frame rails together




It's starting to look like a chassis!




That under-frame receiver box that everybody has been putting weights in... I might do the same.






Time to get those links on




Links mounted




Parts for mounting the motor




I'll be using a Yeah Racing Hackmoto 550 35T Brushed Motor




So... I ran into a snag with this motor. The motor shaft is longer than normal, and I couldn't put the transmission cover on without hitting the motor shaft. So I had to get Yeah Racing Aluminum 540 Motor Spacer Heatsink




With the spacer installed, I was now able to have the motor shaft clear.








One thing I am concerned about is the pinion/spur mesh. It's tighter than I would like, and since the motor mount uses pre-set mounting holes, there's really no fine adjustment available. I will revisit this area later after I complete my build to see if there is a way I can make the pinion/spur mesh more to my liking.

Steps 30-35: Shocks

This update is going to be relatively straightforward.

I also used the Traxxas X-Rings from the 2362 Rebuilt kit like OSRC did.

Parts:

Traxxas 2362 Rebuild Kit


Bag "E" of shock parts.




Those blue X-rings inside the Traxxas 2362 Rebuild kit.




Noleen SF3 Grease (available on eBay)




Team Associated #5422 30wt Oil (available on eBay)




ProTek RC Shock Pliers (available on eBay)




Duratrax Shock stand




Parts needed for Step 30




O-rings put around the shock caps




Parts needed for Step 31




Using the blue X-rings from Traxxas 2362 Rebuild Kit






Pistons on the shafts.




Time to put the front shocks together






Parts for Step 32




rear shock assembly getting there




Decided to put the rod-ends on early




Filling the shocks up with Team Associated #5422 30wt Oil (available on eBay)




Step 33 done






Parts for Step 34




Step 34 done




Parts for Step 35




Step 35 done




Shocks all done

Steps 36-48: Driveshafts, Suspension, Steering.

Covered a bit of ground in this update.


Getting on to the driveshafts. We'll need the F-Bag




Parts needed for lower front shaft




Lower front shaft attached to front axle






Parts needed for lower rear shaft




Lower rear shaft done




The upper half of the driveshafts






Parts for the cantilever suspension setup








Putting the cantilever setup together










Stock cantilever setup












Hooking up the upper shafts to the transmission












Front one going on...








Front shocks mounted








Time to get to the panhard rod.










Now for the steering rods












Was experiencing a bit of bump-steer with the combo of servo horn (Boom Racing low profile) and servo (Turnigy MG959 v2 30kg) that I was using, so I decided to add a 1mm spacer to correct that.

The BOM is really starting to come together now.

1. FlySky FS-R6B Receiver
2. Hobbywing 1080 Esc (available on eBay)

My FlySky FS-R6B Receiver and where it's going...







Some parts for the wiring entrance of the receiver box.








This is where it goes on the truck






Going to be using a Hobbywing 1080 Esc (available on eBay)




Parts for the sliders




Mounted the box without the electronics for the time being.




Front bumper.

Steps 56-58: Wheels and Tires


This is going to be a short step... not much to see here, and I'm just putting these together for the sake of the stock build documentation.


You're going to need these...




All mounted (little secret.. I haven't glued them yet)




Now you'll need these.




Ok.. this part done. See told you it was a short step.

Step 59: Rear Cage

Here's one of the cooler parts of this truck. I really like this rear cage/hinge setup.


Here are the parts needed




Rear Cage put together




Fuel cell painted up and attached to the cage

Steps 60-65: Body & Completion

It's taken be quite a bit of time, and I'm finally done with the "stock" build. I won't be stopping here though. I wanted to build this truck completely stock first just to get that out of the way, but now it's time to start modding and running.


Lexan cab ready for painting




Cab painted and decals applied. My Plasti-dipped fender flares need some work that I'll revisit later.








Here's the grille that I won't be permanently attaching, as I won't be using it.




These are the parts you will need for the front grille




This is how the front grille would look attached






Parts needed for Side mirrors and door handles




Mirrors and door handles attached




Rear cage attached






I love the rear cage hinge for this truck. Very convenient.






Stock build complete

The indentation to properly assemble the diff locker




Upgraded diff locker assembled




Upgraded diff locker in the axle




Repeated the same process for the other axle.

Some cosmetic updates for the BOM.

BOM exterior detail parts tree (Black) [GM60120] (ebay)
BOM mirror L/R [GM30128] (ebay)
BOM cage hinge (Titanium gray) [GM30137] (ebay)
Molotow Liquid Chrome Marker Set - 1mm, 2mm and 4mm


The parts I'll be adding






Never really liked chrome. Just not a fan of it.




Door handles and side mirrors added






Used Molotow liquid chrome markers to properly chrome out the light buckets



[/url]


Prepping for mounting




Here's how they look mounted






Time to put on the hinge parts








So the hinge parts for the most part is just a preference, and not really an upgrade. The stock plastic ones for all intents and purposes work just fine.

The difference is that the option hinge lets you bolt down the hinge so that it stays on the chassis when lifted.

On the other hand.. the stock plastic one allows you to easily completely remove the body from the chassis by just sliding it out of the notch, whereas the metal option hinge would require you to unscrew it from the chassis.

It's really a preference, and I opted for the mounted to chassis option.

Upgraded the wheels and tires for the BOM.

Crawler Innovations 1.9 XL Deuces Wild Single Stage foams (available on eBay)
Pro-Line 1.9 Super Swamper TSL XL G8 Tires (available on eBay)
Injora 1.9 Beadlock Wheels (available on eBay)

Testing some image hosting out, so let me know if the pictures don't work.

This is the BOM on stock tire/wheel setup.




The Injora wheels




Crawler Innovations 1.9 XL Deuces Wild foams




Pro-Line Super Swamper TSL XL 1.9 G8 Tires




These are a perfect match




All foams inserted, ready for wheels






All the wheels & tires mounted together






How it sits now.
