    PRO 4 build........

    after having my SC10 2WD truck and not liking the 2WD part....i made up my mind i want a 4WD full tubed frame SC truck, anyone who knows my tigress and TT class 2 scale build will know what will go into this build....now to let some pictures to do the talking....rough drawing to neat one....





    i ditched the alum floor pan to go all tube....



    the HPI MT2 front end and i was going with at first, but ditched that too for full tubed front A arms as well....



    now for some tube work....













    more to come folks.........bob

    yeah i know the pic's are from 09, but ya can't rush greatness....made my famous wooden jigs and clamps to hold parts for brazin....







    now onto the tubed front end to replace the plastic junk i don't want....the old front end parts to the new ones and tubed floor....







    alum C hubs and knuckles....



    the 3/16" holes in floor pan to accept top 3/16" tubed frame....



    the two halves together for mock up and front end so far....



    body on to see where stuff will ride....



    everything in between the rear fenders and cab will be cut out of the body and tube roll bar will find it's new home with intergraded rear tubed bumper....well so far this is where i'm at and i'm still looking to make my mind up between RC4WD's shoer sourse hardcore axle or there wraith centered alum axle, hope ya enjoy looking as much as i like making this stuff.........bob

    I notice your A arms are laying flat. Not sure but don't you want the front of the A arm pivot to be higher than the rear, at least a few degrees? I know every quad I've ever ridden and every off road vehicle I've ever seen was this way. I could be wrong but it seems you'd want the front suspension to carry up and back when you hit a bump at high speed.

    It is an awesome build bob...

    I just know I'd be making new A arms up after every time I drove it. My short course truck had an affinity for Volkswagons.
