    Retro Jamie chassis build

    If this was the truck that Angel has....I saw he posted it on Facebook. When I got the money up to buy it he said he didn't want to sell it. I found a mint Jugg that I bought for the axles and Jamie had a frame left.......so I bought that and am going to build my own. I had one and sold it like...

    Boyer 1/8 Scale Custom Build

    I have the Parma 04 Ford F150 body that this chassis was actually build around. That's the only one with the length.....but every eighth scale build I've seen runs that body. I just wanted something different. I have that body for sale in the for sale forum if you want it.

    here are some before and after pictures of the frame with the emaxx trans and one with the savage trans. the new mount and tranny lower quite a bit......so now i can get a better cab design. i was kinda worried that i wouldn't get a good cockpit in it because of the height.....and now will be...

    Boyer 1/8 Scale Custom Build

    The axles cases are thick aluminum....no worries. When I opened the cases I saw that the digs were narrower than savage diffs.....so you can't use the savage dies but the spider gears go inside it with no problems. You have to stick with their diffs. The Kershaw trans looks to be straight...

    Boyer 1/8 Scale Custom Build

    Red loctite is fine as long as you done go crazy with it. I only put enough on it to cover up about two threads....I'm kinda meticulous when it comes to stuff like that. I put it on a qtip first then lightly touch it to the thread. I've had bad luck with blue and I've tried a few different...

    Boyer 1/8 Scale Custom Build

    i took the axles apart yesterday. i bought HPI part #87193 four bevel gear kit for the diffs. I cleaned out the grease in the axles and added 30000 Wt silicone diff fluid to them to give them a smoother action and more positive feel. this is the best thing that works for me without totally...

    Boyer 1/8 Scale Custom Build

    I got the other shocks put on. I tried them without the springs but this thing is so heavy it still drooped down.....but putting the shock's springs back on it made it sit just right. It took three spacers to get it sitting just right. I also moved the lower link to the inside mounting...
