    JSLICK's SUPER

    Well it has been a long time coming. I have always enjoyed watching supers, however I was a bit intimidated by them. I picked up a SUPER Bully roller at Worlds and went to town. I am lucky to have some very talented members in the clubs I belong to. First off one of the baddest looking supers out there to my eye is Turbofest's rig. I wanted something like it but a little different so I asked the VP of EPARCCrawlers Brazwewn to sit down with me and pound out some ideas. Here is what he designed for my first SUPER.



    This was the first rendering and some slight tweaks have been made to the cab height and some other places. Wes has a very cool link calculator that makes his designs work awesomely with little tweaking.



    I was very lucky that I was able to use the Ti lower links and the machined skid that came with the roller. The skid was narrowed to match the new geometry of the chassis.


    I will eventually try out some SUPER VOODOOs but for now I have a set of SUPER PITBULL XOR that are being put together by Rockhumper. These tires have done well on the rocks in my area. Here are what they look like, these are from Dezmoon's rig.






    Here is the first pic of the mock up. Shocks will get switched out for some Big Bores. Servos on the way. I have to pull my smashed BRXLs out of my Pro rig for the super and program the MT-4 for all the cool things a SUPER can do. This is a big learning curve.



    Well here is how she sits now, the straight edge is where the balance point is and ride height as of right now.



    Here is how tall she sits with the shocks fully extended.



    Here is full compression, I think I can drive her upsidedown.

    It has been fun designing and working on this. A lot is the same, but so much is different for a super. Here are some more pictures. I still have a lot more to go, but I am working on squeezing the 7980 servos between the motors and the axle. After that I will probably get the new drag links set up.

    First I must say there is a lot of very talented and very knowledgeable people in this group. I have had the pleasure of sitting down with and talking and mostly listing to what they have said. I am very honored to be part of this group. I have not been out to compete but I log on a lot to see what going on. Thanks for doing what you do. Hopefully next year will be better for me to be out with the group. If there is anything that I may be able to help with let me know since so many of you have helped me.


    Yes John that is a very nice rig and I am jealous.

    Maybe you can think about making a kit up like that and selling a few and see how many people would be interested in the super class.

    Had to take a scary amount of material off the tube for mounting the servo. With the overkill on the tubes, it shouldn't be a problem though.

    I also swapped out the 45T motors for the 40T ones. The smallest pinion that will go in is a 14T. Any smaller and the servo won't fit.

    At least you did not have to cut all the way into the tube, great job. Do you think there will be enough throw with the horn on that side?

    The front servo is mounted. On to the drag link.

    I forgot to take out the trash last night, so I rushed out of the house at the but crack of dawn when I heard the truck. Since I was up, I decided to make this.
