No not yet. I need to find an esc and a motor. I have been talking to guyhs and they say I should use 8-9 cells and 19t motor. So I am trying to find a cheap esc that can handle 8 cells.So if anybody has a cheap esc and 19t motor let me know. I am trying to sell stuff to get hte money. Peace Ethan

I started a project like this a while back and never finished it. It was a 1/8th scale buggy, but it used 1/10th truck tires instead of 1/8th buggy tires. They are similar in height but a little wider.
I used a NitroTC3 drive train as well but with a center gear reduction (since you can't get the right ratio with just a pinion and spur) and a 2 speed to keep up on the long gas straights. Mine was a custom reduction, but to make a simple gear reduction you can use an Associated tranny layed down with dog bones going to the front and rear tannys.
Brushless is the way to go, but if you are keeping the cost down you can use the Novak EVX for an E-Maxx. I was gonna start with an LRP 7.1 with 10 cells and the 17 turn Trinity Monster motor for the E-Maxx.
It looks like you are using one, but you must have the slipper to save those gears.


By the way I have also tried the lexan parts before...they work, but DON'T GET MOTOR SPRAY ON THEM!!

It looks to me like your rear dogbones may bottom out inside the diff when you compress the suspension. I used the old Losi outer hubs that raised the bearings up above the hinge pins higher and also raised the inner suspension mounts off of the chassis a little. Both of these brought the dogbone angle closer to the suspesion arm angle and cut down on the amount of in and out movement of the bones while the suspension was moving.

Looks Cool!

wow that is cool. But I think you should put shorter Buggy arms on it and put buggy tires on it as well. That way you can race it in 4wd buggy class. Also if you want you could send some pics to Team Associated because in there races rides all the cars in there are conversion from one car to another, im sure they would put your car in it.

8 cells? Why, if you're ever going to race it I'm SURE that would be out of the question even for a novice racer. Also with 8 cells, you'd have to build your own pack or get cheapbatterypacks.com to do it. It would cost more too. I say stick with 6 cell.

8 cells becuase I will be racieng against nitros and my initial motor choice was a titan 12t. Nope not where i race you race what you bring. I need the 8 cells to keep up with the nitros.I have 3 packs that i can take apart to make two 8 cell batteries. Peace Ethan

If you make the changes that I suggested it will raise your roll center, but not enough to notice on this monster. I forgot that I also shaved the bottom of the tranny to lower the outdrives about 1/8" to also help with the angles, but that can be done later at this point.

As far as the ratio thing goes, give it a shot since you are this far into it. If you had to, there is a way to use a standard 48 pitch spur which goes up to 96t (as long as it doesn't hang out the bottom of the chassis too far). You can attach it to the 87t B4/T4 spur that you currently have and mill out the center of that spur to clear the slipper assembly. I also have pinion gears that go down to 9T that I used to use for direct drive oval racing. I believe that they were made by MIP, but I am not sure if they are still available.

Yea thats a good idea with the spur.Yea the smallest I can get now is like a 12t. IF i really wanted/had to it looks like I could shave more then 1/8th more like 1/4 inch. This would also lower my cg but put the spur farther out of the chassis.

You don't want it out of the chassis, level is pushing it too. Have you tried switching to 64 pitch gears? It would smoothen the tranny and give you more gearing options for your delimma.

I don't believe they make 64 pitch t4/b4 spurs. I have ot have t4/b4 spurs to work with the slipper. But I might be able to use the idea that smac said about putting a second spur gear on there. I have heard 64 is mostly used for on-road though?Becuase the teeth are smaller so they are easier to strip or get dirt in them Peace Ethan
