    Alright guys:

    Here we go, I bought a cutting board from walmart $6, got the templates from: http://offroader5.freeservers.com/templates.html, this site has scale templates and others.


    Here they are cut out, i just used a jigsaw and took my time.


    Here i mocked up some wood at a 12.5wb, and started mocking everything together.


    I cut out the windows:




    Here i went to lowes looking for 3" poly spacers and ended up finding some 3/16" aluminum tubing


    My stock mount where 3 link goes, i took the stock one and ground down all the edges till it was flat:

    Now this is how it should look:


    Took the mount and installed a bracket which i now changed. Started off with this, but ran into problems:


    Now running this one, all problems have gone away, these can be bought at lowes for $1.58 for 2:


    Threw on the wheels and made sure it was what i wanted before i went any further:


    Motor side, wk tranny laid on its side:





    Ground clearance full droop:


    Here i took apart the original battery box from wk, and just used the bottom mounted on a hinge system to my upper link bolts. i was looking for forward weight:


    Flex shots:




    And this is too the point as it sits now... I have recently made a servo mount, i used a old chassis to a rustler, it's graphite. More pics coming soon.

    Well thank you.

    I doubt myself alot, but i know that i can make the stuff and i generally understand them, though until u get positive feedback from ppl that actually crawl, it's a nice feeling to keep u moving forward. Lately it's been sitting, i really don't have much to do on it, couple changes to it and should be able to go down to the basement and give it a try.

    body

    Now i seen u have to run body panels, any suggestions to this? I kinda understand, that i have to go from the back to the top of where or what the windshield would be. And then another panel from the bottom of windshield to my shocks. The top i can do. The non-motor side the bottom portion of the chassis would be the lower door, but what do i do for the motor side?
