    Got a couple of things to finish out the axles today. A second set of HD Axial gears and a pair of VP diff lockers. I originally had a set of Felsenfest diff lockers here, however although they are good quality, I just could not get them tightened down with out having some drag in the axles. Nice lockers, but not the most practical design. The VP on the other hand only require the tightening of two set screws, so drag is less likely to occur. All in all I am very happy with the fit and quality of the VP lockers.







    The axles are all ready to go. I picked up a VP Ti steering link a drag link from Troy to install as well. Not sure the HR knuckles will stay on or not due to the steering link rubbing the diff cover, but I am gonna try and shave of the ribbing on the covers to make them smooth for clearance. More updates to come.

    Thanks Rik. Yes they seem to be a very solid design. Well worth the money. My Ti links from Lunsford showed up today so I robbed the ball ends off the steering linkages and mocked up a trans and a driveshaft to make some upper link mounts. I have seen it done a few different ways and this was what I decided to go with. Pretty simple after getting to correct measurements. I wanted to keep the uppers out towards the chassis as far as I could so the side with the driveshaft will look like it rubs, but I assure it doesn't. Very very minimal if any.

    Here's the Ti links from Lunsford. 3/16" 110 mm long from end to end giving me a total of 125mm with Revo rod ends.



    I measured some things out and used and extra Axial 7mm link that I had here to make spacers for the links. The (outer) pieces from chassis rail to link are 19mm in length and the (inner) piece between the links is 26mm in length. The Axial link makes it nice since it's hollow the entire rod and tapping it for 3mm is quite simple. Cut some studs out of some socket head screws for attaching them.





    Each piece along with the links had to be assembled prior to attaching them to the chassis. A little thread lock and give them a good snug and on the chassis they go.



    A few shots of the final setup mounted up to the chassis. Everything clears perfect and articulation isn't compromised in any way. The driveline runs nice and smooth as well. Just waiting on more rod ends to show up and then I can finish up the rear end in the same fashion and hopefully have a rolling chassis by tomorrow afternoon. It's coming together quickly so far and I am looking forward to getting this thing out in the dirt.

    Got some time today to get some work done on the rear portion of the chassis and got everything made up to mount the rear uppers. Basically the same as the front end. All four shocks are internally limited 6mm. So I now have a rolling chassis.





    My previous wheel and tire combo is out the window due to the fact the are just too small for my taste. More on that to come next week.

    Motor and ESC is all wired, tuned and ready to drop in. It's just down to a few odds and ends at this point before it all comes together and runs.

    Ok so things are gradually coming together on this thing. I am still waiting on a couple of key components to arrive so in the meantime, I decided to work on a bumper and since it's like -40* I figured today would be a good day to make one. So here is what I ended up with. It will be paintd of course before it goes on.

    Great looking work so far!!! Have you thought about clocking the axles a bit to help with the angle of the driveshafts?

    Thanks Slick. Clocking the axles isn't really necessary. The driveshafts run smooth as butter where they are now. It is at 13" for a wheelbase as well, so that helps out a bit.
