Greetings all, I have decided to build something! Its been a while, I have made a lot of clodbuster and juggernaut based stuff in the past, only recently have I noticed the AR60 axle and the possibilities it gives. A good following on a platform like this is essential, so you know you have lots of hop up bits to choose from. I saw a truck that someone made recently in a "car action" magazine, really liked the chassis design so I blatenly coppied it and then set about making all the pretty bits I have in my head. I like shiney bits, so if you like rough/scale looking crawlers, then I dont think your going to enjoy this much. Ok, so I designed the chassis I liked in cad and printed it out, cardboard is always a good place to start in my opinion. had a bit of a faff stretching it and making it the right length, I wanted it 350mm long so the chassis finished exactly on the wheelbase, in my opinion, this makes for a nice proportioned truck. I sent my final design off to the good people at fibrelyte and they cut it out of half carbon, half fibreglass, so it looks like carbon but doesnt cost quite so much, as it was the 2 chassis plates were just under ?100. I bought some cheap alloy axles from asia tees, love the look of these, plus they come with gears, bearings, hubs etc which I needed as I have nothing AR60 based, I can always upgrade bits after. Got some revo rod ends, and started making some links! started with some 12mm square bar and milled these chunky looking fellows, always tough doing 4 of one thing as you have to get them all to match! easy in a cnc, not so easy when your using a manual mill. ok thats it for now, more later.
