I really like those old-style Ford pick up bodies. I'm glad you have 'before' pics of them.

WIch break strength Gorilla string do you use? Would using (dyneema) kite-lines be an option?

I use Louise RC (Duratrax) tyres/wheels on both my Losis, they just balloon a little, but not so much as Pro-line tyres. However i want to try Pro-line Mashers in the future.

80lb Gorilla sting. It's in the fishing section at walmart. It's lil over $20 but I haven't broke any yet and theses tires get used weekly. I use 2 constant loops and use witch ever decent knot u can tie. I do have a certain way I tie mine but don't know the technical name for it. Well worth the money.

Yes but I don't know the technical name for it. I wrap the tire to get the size the cut sting and tie it off the tire then put it on. Much easier than trying to tie it on tire. We run on really rocky gravel and I don't have any sign of wear on the string.

This is my rear gearbox big bearing modification (8x16x4).



Machined front side, uses 8x16x4 bearing.



Machined rear side, uses 8x16x4 bearing.





The stock pinion bearings are 5x13x4, that's too small for me



Steel bushing, 5x8x8mm



She's ready to run! I ended up pressing in the steel bushing with a vice on each side of the bearing, it's not moving and is rock solid. Everything spins smooth, ready to rock & roll 👍

Impressive machining Overkill, those larger output bearings definitely look BEEFY! You have a shop yourself? Were you blowing through those bearings or just a part you wanted to try and improve?

I see Overkill has this done on both the MT410 and ET48?

These things are easily the most sturdy RC I've ever owned, but nothing is foolproof. Here's the aftermath of a head on collision with an immovable object at full speed



I hit a 1ft tall ring of bricks around the base of a tree at the edge of a dirt road I was hauling down. Worst possible timing too, it happened right before the weekend's perfect weather.

I had a ton of spare parts stockpiled, just none of the ones I needed It does look like all the parts will be here today, slim chance I'll be able to get it fixed up and get a run in by the time it gets dark though.

Thanks. I don't own a shop, I had this done at my friends machine shop. This is an area that I wanted to improve upon.

This is for my ET48, they all use the same gearbox.

Do you have a T-Bone bumper? If not, now may be a good time

Quick few question that I know have a few answers....

Intended use will be bashing.. from street, high bite, to grass fields, tracks of course and everything in between. Mainly on 4s. Wheels racer to 3.8s.

Thinking 2000kv? or CC 2200kv?

Diff setup? 70/70/50

Thanks.

Got the info, think I'll have both motors just to be safe.

T8 2000kv and CC 2200kv .

Great builds everyone!

I'm hooked.

I'm hooked.
There are quite a few threads and posts in this thread about motor selection and these two specifically but it depends on if you plan to run 4s or 6s batteries. There has definitely been a trend to run lower kV motors such as 1350 or 1700 since they seem to produce less heat amount other benefits. Either of those motors will be awesome with 4S but if you're trying to push the power of your rig or live in a hot area you may find additional benefits of a lower kV.
T8 ESC has the smallest footprint so its much easier to fit on the MT410 chassis but the motor and ESC aren't waterproof where as the CC system is waterproof (i think even their sensored motors are waterproof?) This was a huge deciding factor for me as enjoy ripping through rain, puddles, snow, etc. If you're going with 2 motors you could even something specifically for 4S and then another for 6S, or a waterproof system, etc, just depends on what your overall intent is!
