    Zedorda is absolutely correct. The Traxxas foam adhesive body washers he has linked to Amain are exactly what I'm using. I did, however, change all three mounts for the body to a Slash type of post...

    The Integy carbon fiber plate works great, very tough & nice looking. But I believe it's discontinued - I think they have a newer version out, but that's more aluminum than carbon fiber.

    Just wanted to give a quick little update on a couple of small things I did to the truck, especially since Synnergy and I were talking about one of the items in the last post. That one being the...

    For your application the RPM offset compensating arms will be perfect. They're a little too flexible for racing applications, but are amazingly resilient and tough for any bashing environment. They...

    While popular back in the day for stadium trucks, and still used occasionally today for them, they are specifically banned for use on short court trucks in the ROAR Rules - see below;

    "8.10.12.6.1...

    Hey Synnergy,

    I'm currently using the shock mounts that came with the Anza towers for both the front & rear. Over those standoff mounts I have some (now discontinued) AE composite bushings. They...

    Thanks much, guys - I really appreciate it. Synnergy, I didn't see a single rear motored vehicle of any type there the entire day. All the buggy's were B6's, B6.1's , or Losi 22's, and all the trucks...

    As I mentioned in the last post, I did manage to make it to one of the somewhat far away tracks around me this past weekend. I went to a place called Coyote Hobbies Raceway in Victorville, California...

    Now that you mention it, and thinking about what you've used on your builds, that's true! Off the top of my head, I believe you have used both ProLine PowerStroke and ProSpec shocks designed for a...
  11. Thank you very much for the kind words,...

    Thank you very much for the kind words, Dakratfink. You know, as much pride as I take in the evolution and development of this truck, I must say that by far the biggest reward for all of the work...

    All is well these days - just coming into the busy time of year for me at work, so it's tough to find time to get away to play. Subsequently, I haven't been to any track since my last track report...

    Sorry for the delayed response, but it took awhile to get all of the information together. Since these shocks cannot be purchased as a completed set, I wound up getting pieces from everywhere (eBay,...

    Thanks RC Dad. The Mid-motor setup actually started with the chassis - it's a Factory Works SRT-R Custom chassis that I worked with Jeff Malar (the owner) on to design it as a mid-motor version. This...

    So, I know for all, or any of the racers out there (myself included), one of the biggest things that helps me the most is getting a look at setup sheets. I find them invaluable to get some basic...

    Glad to hear the family is well. It definitely sounds like you guys were able to have a great time driving around the neighborhood , even though you weren't able to get to the track - that's awesome!...

    I received the last few bits and pieces to put together a little something special that I've wanted for a long time. I made the truck a set of its own custom Fox Kashima coated shocks. Not just...

    Hey Synnergy, how have you been? I hope you and the family are well. Thanks for the positive words. So, the Tebo ESC settings.... These are what he used back in February of this year at the Reedy...

    Thanks, Synnergy. So I moved forward with some of the minor adjustments that I mentioned earlier. First I started with a little body repositioning to get things to sit a bit better. I lowered the...

    I was able to take the truck out for a little shake down test a few weeks ago at the outdoor dirt track. It's not really where I wanted to go, but it was a last minute thing of either go there for a...

    Lunsford stuff is just the bomb. Not cheap, but I guarantee these will be the last axles you'll ever have to buy.

    I wore out the Traxxas original axles that came with my truck awhile ago - wore...

    I'd go with something around 280mm. The standard Bandit/Rustler wheelbase is 289mm, so 280mm would be short enough to make a difference that can be felt, but not too short as to create problems with...

    No, not using any phillips screws - I'm with you, I really don't care too much for those. I'm using all Traxxas original steel hex head hardware of the VXL, with a few exceptions here or there.
  24. Glad you like it! It's my kind of truck too... So...

    Glad you like it! It's my kind of truck too... So far it's been a blast to drive on all types of tracks - I can only imagine in a lightweight mid-motor configuration that it will be even more so.
  25. Thanks! There are actually still a few things...

    Thanks! There are actually still a few things stock/Traxxas left on this truck, but not many! You'd be surprised at what they are. For instance - still stock... rear sliding axles & outer axle shafts...
