Thanks Dan! Looking forward bouncing setup ideas off you and really getting Academy up to the front!

Im still having nightmares about all those speedos blowing up.

Nice truggy! Can you post up some pics without the body? I was thinking of doing this with the SB Pro but without larger spur gears at the time on the V1 series didn't feel comfortable trying it.

Is this a SB V2 or V1?

This in my opinion is where 1/10 scale electric and nitro trucking should go!

If I also recall correctly, if you need more offset than the standard truck rims from Academy, traxxas stampede rear rims will work and they have more offset as well. I think I tried a set out LONG time ago with my first SB, the SB Sport when it first came to the USA.

Man I'm getting old!

What do you guys do about the rear dogbone popping out? They seem a little short. Thanks.

Personally, I bought the rear UJs, but a lot of people have stuck with the dogbone without problem, and I'm sure they will advise you soon.

The wheel offset was fixed by using the wheels made by CEN Racing. It has a grip of offset.

I never had troubles with the rear dogbones poping out... Hmmm...

This truggy was made from a V2. Not a single BJ4 or Losi could catch it on the track! I think I was about 1 seconds a lap faster than the 4wd buggies...

Congrats to Bean on his TQ and win in Mod 4wd at the US Central Final in Dallas yesterday. He also qualified 2nd and finished 3rd in Mod Buggy.

Yep, Bean was in another world with that car. He turned the only 15 lap run of the day and won the main by like 18 seconds.

What does it take to convert the car to a truggy as the pic above shows?

If you are having trouble with your rear dog bones popping out and still want to use the dogbones, place 1 red AE sized o-ring in each of the rear axles before putting in the dogbone. I went with an o-ring instead of something hard like a spacer as I didn't know initially if there would be stresses because of this that the o-ring could absorb. You may be able to just use a spacer as well.

This should push the dogbone in just enough into the outdrives so it doesn't fall out. You may also want to play with the rear limiting some as well to get it just right. After doing this, I had no problems and enough rear droop.

Congrats as well. Someone should contact www.4wdrc.com and have them post the info on this.

Well done Bean! Keep up the whooping!

If you are using spacers with your dog bones make sure they arent too thick or they may cause the dogbone to slip out of its slot and wear the ends.
Limiting the droop a little works well.

Looks like that truggy is just CEN wheels and a shell.?
I have a Nitro basher Academy Velox that runs those wheels.
Im currently in the process of building a SBV2 truggy up with Academy RT Sport parts!
