    Thanks. I still think there might be a bit more cage work as I want some roof lights and stuff. I have some scale bits being made for it too. and then I need to round up a winch for it.

    Just thought I'd share a pic of a 1:1 bug that is similar to my build.

    Added a RC4WD Winch today. This one has a keychain remote since my 3rd channel is used for dig on this rig. The motor is a bit big on one side making it look a little goofy. But it works great and came with an extra motor and gear set.

    This rig did super awesome at the TTC we had this weekend. Only rig to complete the hill climb in one shot, no roll overs and nothing broke. I unfortunately was not the driver that made it, but at least I know what my rig is capable of if I learn to drive.

    Waiting on my scale stuff to get here, otherwise this thing is rocking. I didn't even need to use the winch I installed. Maybe I will get the cage painted before the next comp.

    Ok, so todays project was to make room for the Speedweigand motor. That meant cutting off my tire carrier and redoing the rear of the cage. Also, time to integrate the shock mounts.





    I also used what was left of my tube and started the top of the cage. I ran out of map gas and tube and had to quit.



    and of course the whole thing is removable.

    Just about got it finished up.

    MOre tube today and then finally got some paint on it.







    I am pretty happy with how it's turned out. Its now a full tuber. I made the top bars removable so I can get the panels off if I need to work on it. I will add some lights at some point to it as well. Looking forward to bolting it all back up and running it.

    So next I made up some fender wells. A bit tricky since the wheel wells are different sizes. I had to use a cool whip container in the back and an ice cream bucket in the front.



    Then I managed up all the wires and tucked everything away as neatly as possible and then installed the interior. Everything is now hidden from view.



    I mounted up the motor which hides the esc and rx quite nicely.



    Looking good now.



    Then I made the hood open so I could get the battery in and out since the full cage make it 8 screws worth of difficult to get to the stuff inside.




    I still have a few finishing touches like exhaust and maybe some lights. Still have to paint the stinger too.
