    The blue one almost looks the same color as mine?

    The canti setup.....is that an ESP setup?

    Maybe when you get some time could I see a body off shot?


    btw.....both look great!!

    Thanks for the pictures! I may have to do this to my Jugg?

    I'm really digging the black chassis, is that paint or powder?

    Btw......how many does this make?

    Here are some pics of my basher jugg. It has a blue jugg chassis with ESP juggular chassis kit. TXT-1 upper and lower links with jato and revo rod ends and 4" AE Shocks. The output shafts on the tranny and axles have been upgraded to the 6mm outputs from the TXT-1 and have the TXT-1 upper link mounts on the axles.

    Nice. Any pick of how you did the links? I plan on swapping out my ESP stock wheelbase links. How much are the AE shocks you're using?

    Here are some close up's on how I did my suspension. Hope they help, look in ArcoCustoms thread on how he did his juggernaut build. He had to short the lower link on the ESP kit I think. As for the AE shocks. I have had them for years and got them from tower hobbies, in a pack of 8. They was made for the t-maxx.

    Where those the ones on fee-bay last week? If so I was looking at them and commenting that if I had the money I could buy both of those listing and pretty much have a complete factory Jugg.

    Yes these are the ones off fee-bay.. The top gears are shot in the axles. Im glad I picked up the Tamiya care pack a year ago. This truck was used hard.

    Can you tell I'm addicted to Tamiya Juggernaut's!!

    Nah......the thought never crossed my mind:p

    Also I guess I didn't read that listing for the axles that well, I thought they were Jugg @ axles. Either way you got what I thought was a good deal!

    I took the juggernaut axles apart to upgrade them with the Tamiya care pack. The previous owner didn't use thread lock on the diff screws and they was stripped an backing out. I had spare diff's laying around, so I used them. Another thing the previous owner did was over tighten the u-bolts and bent the lower u-bolt plate. I upgraded the bushing's to bearing's. I upgraded the steering rods with Tamiya steering kit. As I get more parts, ill update the build of the juggernaut. Here are some pics.

    I got the chassis back from the powder coaters. The frame came out awesome. I?m still working on installing the juggernaut body on the frame. It?s slowly getting there and waiting on more parts to come in.

    As I was waiting on parts for my New Era juggernaut build I worked on my ESP Juggalur Twins. I?m still working on the shock setup for the cantilever. They?re just way to stiff and I?m going to lower it about 15mm.
