    Nope as far as I can see... It's not like the SRT that has that little "L" shape plastic on the rear shock tower...

    If you wait a week or so, my CC chassis is on the way here and I can meassure it for you before I start building it...

    Awesome! I could probably make one easily enough, but I've been feeling really lazy recently. Too much working on 1:1 cars.

    Whoaa! Page 2! It's about time. I had to scroll for days to read the first page.

    Haha, I've been waiting for page 2 also! The upper deck does not attach to the rear bulk. Also, it does not lie flat. When installed, it has a slight "bow" because the bulk sits higher than the battery cups. Kinda weird, but I did confirm it with another person who has the same chassis.

    There is a scan of the upper deck here: http://www.rc10talk.com/viewtopic.ph...omposite+craft

    Well, I now have all the parts. I would like to find NOS, wing mounts, white shock pieces for 2 shocks, and the ever elusive new body, but that's it. I am very happy with the condition of the used pieces I have, but when the opportunity rises, I will get new ones.

    You will be receiving an e-mail shortly about annodizing. I'd like all of my alluminum to match.

    Those are #1715 correct?

    Hahaha, Dave, get a few more for me too...

    And, no problem about the annodizing, but, I would like to wait until the end of the year if you can, you know how these days are regarding shipping...

    Oh, I agree. I probably won't even have it until tomorrow or the day after anyways. I need to give myself some time to drool over it and get my shocks ready.

    Short question, the battery tray in the middle, when you installed it, did it bend on the flat rectangle area that goes against the chassis? When I installed mine it bends like a small arch. What kind of screw did you used?

    Not sure if this is what you mean, but he mentioned the arch in the top deck from attaching it to the front bulkhead.

    Yeah, it doesn't fit right. Kinda weird, but there is a member from rc10talk forums who has this chassis too. He said that it was the same for him too.

    Your parts are done and safe at my home! The color is the same for all of them, but my camera shows them a little different...



    I'm sending them to you on Monday morning with Priority shipping and tracking (I hope), you should get them in one week or two... I'm keeping the old shocks as we talked about...

    Got the shocks rebuilt! Should get to the tranny soon! I also have a Thorp gear set to put in it also (changes ratio to that of the associated RC10).


    I really can't wait to see that new motor mount on the TRX1!

    Just got a complete and new Losi Hydra Drive unit for the TRX-1! It's like a fluid filled slipper. It has an impeller to spin in thick fluid to provide a unique form of slip. A while back a Thorp adapter shaft popped up on Ebay for the TRX-1, and I thought it may come in use in the future. Glad I got it!


    This buggy is just a collector's item, but I don't think I'll ever be done with it. Still want Technacraft titanium turnbuckles and suspension pins........ (and a new body!)

    Never knew traxxas had an adapter shaft! I got the whole assembly NOS for $50ish. Not bad I think.

    Whenever you have a moment, can you take a nice big picture of all the included parts? Thanks! Daniel.



    PS: want to see the aluminum parts installed!

    I'll take pics of the whole kit. Guess I'll post some pics of the aluminum tonight! Was waiting for the hydra drive, but it sure looks nice right now too! I may have to quickly bolt the motor up also.


    BTW, since traxxas made an adapter shaft for the hydra drive, do you know if they made a gear cover to fit over it? (or another company) Don't think the regular gear cover will fit over it. Then again, do I want to cover it up? IDK haha

    No... I found the adapter yesterday night by mistake, I don't know if there's a gear cover for it...

    What part number is the adapter? Maybe I can find some more info....

    Ok, time for pics!!!! Dont have my Hydra Drive unit yet, but the pics will show the re-annodized shocks and motor plate.
    Also, Thorp gear set and adapter shaft (for hydra drive unit)



    Thorp gear set in progress........



    The gear ratio is now the same as the associated RC10 (2.25:1).



    Thorp adapter shaft for the Hydra Drive (which is in the mail!)



    Look at all the pristine aluminum.






    BIG thanks to Daniel for getting all the aluminum re-annodized so that they were no longer 3 shades of blue!

    I'll probably always be adding something to it...I just like building things. Still eagerly await a new (old) body though!

    haha. It just made it that more excited to get them in the mail. I wanted to send them to somebody who knew what to do. I didn't want to trust them to a stranger. (esp. the motor mount!)

    Well, I got my hydra drive unit the other day. Turns out, the "unit" is not fully complete. It's just a bolt on for the losi slipper. So, I now need to find a new losi friction slipper set up.


    Plus side, got another set of TRX 1 instructions also....in much better shape than my previous set. Figured I'd get them for $5.

    I know I'm 10 years too late, but those are Race Prep connectors, I used them back in the 90s, they weren't bad.
