In the quest of trying to do something totally different.....we as guys find ourselves trying to build that truck no one has......that one that everyone looks at, our favorite monster truck icon, or simply just that thing that everyone knows is yours. Well.....I am actually no different. Almost two years ago i sought out to make that truck and now it is just starting to come to reality!!! Here are the new parts that i have so far: Boyer made 1/8 scale chassis that uses XTM X factor Axles and an Emax 3906 trans. The trans will still be shiftable....thats the main reason i wanted to use it Mamba Monster 2 setup with 2200KV 1515 motor Axial SCX10 shocks (because i had them and they were new!) Crawford Performance servos Imex Kong tires (shaven.....trying to start on the next tire!!) Imex Diamond 17mm Chrome wheels Muscle Machines Hemi engine Ofna Servo savers (bought from CPE) RC4WD Punisher extended X factor Driveshafts Parma 04 F150 1/8 scale body (decided not to use it though....smh) Today was the first start of the project and it is going really well. The tolerances of the chassis and dimensions are perfect.....John Is ON POINT! The craftsmanship of this thing is awesome and its practicalness is perfect. the shock mounts can be adjusted up and down. The trans can be taken out in less than three minutes. What more can a guy ask for?!?!? Today i put in the motor and pinion, mounted the shocks installed the driveshafts, installed the steering arms and servo. VIOLA! BESIDES WHEELS AND TIRES I ALREADY HAVE A READY TO RUN CHASSIS......well.....kinda! Still undecided on which shocks i really want to run........these shocks look very well. Everything thing fits....has tight tolerances....and is very clean. ://s239.photobucket.com/user/soulja55/media/Boyer/2014-10-04_105819_zps9132baea.jpg.html][/URL] the shafts the motor so what are your thoughts on shocks?
