Default 1/10th scale truggy

Here is a thought on building a 1/10th scale truggy for those of you w/ interests. A 1/10th scale truck & an 1/8th scale buggy are about the same width. The 1/8th scale is super durable. It should be fairly easy to get a sheet of cf, shaft drives slipper & motor mount assembly, & a 1/8th scale buggies front & rear ends. You could also take a 2nd sheet of cf & use it to reinforce the chasis.

The last thread I remember about 1/10 4wd trucks was titled T44, I think. A guy built a 4wd T4 using a chassis from Academy. Or something like that. I always enjoy looking at the creations people come up with for this type of vehicle. I haven't seen the 1/8 scale parts suggested though. Let's see what you come up with.

Get a CRT.5 convert to brushless and use traxxas truck wheel and you have a 1/10 truggy that will stay together.

I'd like to see Ofna (well whoever makes them) to stretch the chassis and longer arms to make it a true 1/10, Could still make the .5 for bashers and the new .5 class

Default 1/10 scale truggy

...thought you might have a laugh at my wanna be 10th scale truggy. It's a rustler w/ a losi 8ight-T wing (funny part is that it actually helps). lol... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h8qAuNDmuyE

Here's two 1/10 4wd gas Trucks, and I'm sure if you wanted to convert to BL/Lp, it would not be to hard.

A CRT.5 with an RCMonster conversion chassis is only about an inch shorter than a T4's wheelbase. With a 10th scale body and T4 wheels all around, you've got a 10th scale truggy.

You might as well just run an sbv2 w/ truck wheels & body. An 1/8th scale would give you a bullet proof platform & a body that is large enough to shove a pair of 3s 5kmah lipos in there. I'm sure you could run 45 minute mains w/ it & you would never ever have to worry about parts breaking.
