    The Prodigy 2014

    Well this has been a long time coming. I am glad to be supporting Turbotech, I have know and driven with Jimmy since I started in '10. He has always been supportive and I wanted to give back. I am proud to be running the Prodigy chassis. I have watched this chassis do some amazing things and I wanted to step up to an axial based sporty. The fit and finish of the chassis is top notch. Like I said this has been a long time in the making. I started gathering parts at the end of last season and got a set of Creation Fab axles put together by Chris the Battery man for Crawllife. David was nice enough to part with them. So the first thing I did was of course was to tear them apart and drop in overdrive and underdrive mounted to the LOCKED UP RC spools, no slop. I love these things. I had Eddie over at Br00d drop a 30T LE arm that I had into a new can to give it some go. I had a spare sidewinder micro laying around so that went in the parts pile.

    Here are some pics, enough talk.



    Notch Eight made the tierod for it. I went with the suggestion of running the VP scale C-hubs, I like them so far.


    A pile of parts



    The tranz has the brass inserts in the bottom to provide strength and the tranz has the full RR treatment with VP grease. Had to run MIP also, that way I have one less thing to think about.




    Ahh moving on to wheels
    Won a great set of anodized Shift hubs from Lattice Innovations awhile back, great addition to the build. I contacted Crawler Innovations and ordered up a set of


    After seeing them on Rowdy's rigs out at Battle Grounds. I had a great time out there. If you have never gone you should."thumbsup"

    I figured with the wheels I need some kind of weigh up front so I got some


    and the tuning kit for the Wraith knuckles I am running. I did have to take some of the powder coating off to get them to fit well. Not a big deal, sanding drum on a dremmel and a couple of min.



    I got some narrowed up SILVER and BLUE VOODOO and CI comp cut foams to mount up to the shifts and 6Bolts










    SILVERS Front, I added an OZ. in the wheels


    BLUE rear


    Electronics in, so far so good.




    Crawl Life was nice enough to give me a body that he was going to get rid of. I am not one to turn down things I can use. Test fitted the body with the Gunnar mounts.


    Now I am no painter by any stretch of the imagination. Rattle Can for me. When I went looking through the little bit of paint I have I could only find White and silver. Oh well it is just going to be a practice body. David is painting one up for me for the Northeast National Qualifier. Can't wait to see it.




    All mounted up.


    Stickered up




    READY FOR THE ROCKS!!
















    Got out of work today at 11:00 today and got to drive it until 3:00. I am very impressed, I have some basic tuning to do, like a pinion change and adding some weight here and there. Side hilling and climbing it was a beast! I have to get use to bumping the throttle, but that will come with wheel time. I have to get more in before the NENQ at the end of the month. I trimmed some of the pins off the silvers in the front but not the full pattern that I have been running on the PRO. Thanks Jimmy for putting out such a great sportsman chassis."thumbsup"

    very awesome step by step
    awesome ride

    How do I get some of those EPA stickers?

    Tell me more about overdrive and underdrive and the Locked Up spools and axles

    so do you overdrive the front and underdrive the rear?

    Benifits?? how does it work?

    Come on out to an event and I'll have some stickers for ya. The overdrive makes the front axle spin faster, the underdrive slower. With this setup the front gets more bite. The only downside is when you are going in reverse it pushes instead of pulling because the rear is slower. The LOCKED UP RC spools take the place of the axial Iron Cross locker, it is lighter and I think tougher. If you click on the locked up name at the bottom of this post it will take you to their website.
