    My Rally with a SC twist

    I already built a 6S Rally/XO-1 hybrid but it's all about top speed. The problem is I can't enjoy it on a day to day basis... So I decided to build a 2S tarmac beast. Here's a rundown of of my build list.

    Black dyed LCG chassis
    XO-1 axes, steering blocks, rear carriers, & 17mm hexes
    GRP S3 tires
    AVID bearings
    Savx 2271SG .065sec @ 277oz
    STRC shock towers
    PowerStroke front shocks with rear springs both up front & rear
    Traxxas a-arms for their stiffness
    STRC drive shaft & front drive shaft hub
    STRC steering bell crank
    VG Racing chassis brace
    STRC ESC plate
    King head motor mount
    Mod 1 gearing 19P 40S
    Rally front body posts & proline rear posts
    Tekin 4300HD & RX8
    Proline Chevy Silverado


    I call her 'Overkill'

    Still setting sub trim and need to test the gearing. My guy at LHS said he runs 17/42 in his Losi SC, so I thought I'd start at 19/40... Also need to Shoe Goo the body then she should be ready to rip!

    Waiting on pics to load to photo bucket.

    Looks good! I can see why you painted those wheels. They are very yellow! I like the blue with the ghost flames! Gives it a muscle car look

    Looks great bro! I made my onroad basher kinda like this. I run the proline tundra body cut long for that slammed truck look.

    thanks RadReptiles831. I too like the look of the SC body on a rally. Saddly it rained all day yesterday, so no runs on Overkill yet. I hope I get some RC time sometime soon!

    I'd be glad if you sent some rain here! Can't wait to hear how well it runs.

    Outside you can really see the flames. They didn't turn out so 'ghost'...

    1st run was a good one. 5800mah 2S Lipo = 51mph. Forgot my temp gun. Ran the batt to low voltage cut off able to keep my finger on the can for 2 full seconds. SWEETNESS! [IMG][/IMG]

    Thanks sean1214. Not bad for an iphone6...

    Happy you enjoyed your first run! All your work was a success! You should be very proud of yourself! The body looks perfect still, great job!

    Thank you for your complement ElSlob. This build was a bit expensive but well worth it. I am very pleased with the Tekin 4300HD 550 can thus far. After further evaluation of the run, I'm going to soften the spring rate up a little. There was zero lean while cornering. I don't want to 3 wheel motion but just a little adjustment is needed.

    I just wish there were more people around me who would do some parking lot racing.

    I had the aluminum a-arms that I WAS going to use on the XO1 but...

    It took a bit of clearancing for the front castor blocks to fit nicely...

    Very nice.
    Those pins your using on the front chubs to arms by using E clips. Are they something you made or is there a part number for them. I have some in the rears that came with the rear carriers. But not the fronts. I still like this truck style truck body you and rad has. Does it do good for speed runs?

    They are lundsford titanium pins. They come with the e clips. I don't believe the body would be the best choice for speed runs. This RC only runs 45-50mph, I set it up for cone racing.

    I'm nearly finished on a full mod I think you guys call them. I haven't s detailed thread on it yet but so far it's

    New build rally lcg.
    Hobbywing sc8 120 esc
    Leppard 2700kv motor
    Gens ace 4s hardcase 40-80c 5000mah
    Savox 1256 servo
    Mips xduty all all round
    Tekno big bone centre shaft
    revo 3.3 slipper clutch
    Ultimate hubs knuckles and rear hubs.
    lunsford ti links all round.
    Lunsford ti hinge pins.
    Rpm rod ends all round
    rpm nerf bars.
    Hot racing roll cage + chassis stiffener.
    Xo1 shock towers ready to fit.
    Xo1 shocks converted to platnium shocks.
    Spectrum dx4c radio set.

    Mayb other little things I forget about lol.

    Next orders will be.

    Hot racing motor mount in blue (anyone seen a black one?)
    Boca bearings green seal I hope but mayb the lower set.
    Then some alloy diff cups from flm

    After that I will start buying slash or backslash conversion parts and slowly the other conversions so it ends up being a chimera as shown by Jang. But I'm mainly intrested in..

    Speed car
    Drift car
    Slash
    Buggy
    mayb truggy later for grass if the buggy is poor.

    I'm aiming at building the real ultimate slash not traxxas attempt lol. But whatever parts I remove I keep and once finished I will start trying to build a hcg chassis up which will take over on the off road duties. Leaving the full mod to chase speed and be a wet parking lot missile drifting gangsta number 1 ride lol.

    Sorry I just watched a film called chappie check it out its too funny.

    If anyone can look over my elec set up and advise me on gearing and also whether I would need a glitch buster or external bec as the sc8 esc has known issues with the internal one I think.

    But I love the sc8 esc it's the only one I trust after burning so many castle ones they blew alttle smoke and totally died. But a little 60a hw I fried it by mistake surge voltage it poured smoke from inside but the esc never missed a beat always used 3s too. That just made me see the Hw stuff us good. Mayb not the best I know but for the price it is.

    I have a spare set of slash 2wd lunsford pins. Mistakenly brought for the 4x4. Would it be possible for any of those to fit on the 4x4 so I have spares?

    I found them super cheap in usa you have some amazing prices I paid just 12 deliverd.

    Who are your favourite upgrade suppliers and them shipping to uk at good rates preferred.

    Power-hobbies is my favourite so far it's usually 3x cheaper than uk and he includes shipping taxs or just some? I got my mips at $88 for both pairs. The face value says $150 for both so power are amazing based on that. UK want 150 for them lol and Asiatees.
