I came up with an Idea and I was wondering if anyone knew some one that would make me a custom chassie plate per my design, and how much would it cost?

If it's designed like this, it will bolt right on where the existing chassit is and it will also make me able to mounting the servo for my dig once it arives a little cleaner. You can see the red box I drew to make sure I stayed wtih comp specifications.

Graham Machine back home could do it. Not sure how much it would cost. If it works well you could market it. :-)

How about your shock angles and what not. Are they going to be ok?

All the angles shold be ok, I made a paper cut out and put it up agains the side of the truck and it looks like everything will work just right, no rubbing or anything, I'll probly need to get 80 or 90 MM shocks to run with this chassie caust the 120's will be a little long.

sure looks like it will drastically change your shock angles.

The upper links mount in the lower set of 2 in from and 3 in rear. As for the shocks, I'm going to try shorter shocks and less of an angle and see how it works if it doesn't there are alternatlocations that will position them back close to where they were.

ok i see them now, thought they were the lower link holes....one hint though, try to make your upper/lower links the same length as each other on each end of the crawler ;) ...........bob

I'll try that... What is the reason for that? I'm asuming stability. I just left the holed where they wrer on the factory set up. I guess I can add another stet further back. The lower links actualy mount to the boron oh the tranny on the venom. I might have to redesign the skid so I can move the llower links forward a little.

with your upper lionks shorter then the lowers you will have your diff pinion angle change more then with equal length upper/lower links....in others words it will point your pinion shaft up and down when the suspension cycles up and down....i had shorter uppers and when my rig sits at rest with droop set up i have my pinion shaft pointing upwards to the tranny output....when my suspension drops from the chassis the pinion shaft would point down to the rocks and stick out from under the lower links....with equal length upper/lower links it's not as bad but stil does it..........bob

I think I see what youre saying, the way it's set up now, the pinion shaft stays facing the same direction. Maybe it's just about the diference in angle for the upper and lowers.

3D Render - you can see in the render the side gate that will be removable so you can access the eletronics if need be.
