Default Scale CORR Truck

Starting my project tomorrow at school its gonna be a 1/10th CORR style truck built to the exact scale except running a electric motor

my plans are
1/4in aluminum chassis
4 link rear suspension
independent front suspension
bypass shocks on all 4 corners
dual stage shocks
solid rear axle(not to sure on that yet)
scale roll cage
either F-150 or Silverado body

not to sure on tires ill have to make a trip to toys r us soon

when i finish it ill be running a novak GTS spectrum 2.0 and at leat a 15 turn motor

either myself or my schools machine shop will be making all the parts

any suggestions? since this is my first car ill be building completely from sratch

my chassis plans are here: http://www.corracing.com/pdfs/Pro2Chassis.pdf

ill post pics through out the project

Wow, I saw the "Desert racer" prototype but I never heard about that version.

I thought it looked pretty sweet, I would guess that it will sell pretty well, but i doubt that it will really catch on and im sure there wont be much racing of them.

I say go for the solid rear axle, only way to finish off the scale part and run 4-link. Use a Chevy body also, if you put a Ford on it, its gonna break on every outing like the full scales!

That's funny, because the non-Ford teams I deal with all have Fords for pre-runners or they use Ford suspensions under their "Brand X" or "Brand T" trucks...LOL

Yes, there are pro's and cons to every truck or car, but is there a truck/car that is absolutely perfect? No.

If you can find a copy of a tamiya TXT-1 TLT-1 or Juggernaut you can get some design ideas.

Or you just buy the completed axle on ebay and design your chassis around it, its what most of the Custom Crawler guys do.

a quick google turned this up


Heres the one off the tamiya High lift
