This is one of my ongoing projects.

TLT axels
Big rig 3-speed (modified front output)
Home made telecopic driveshafts.
Proline Chevy C10 Longbed body
RC4WD 1,9" beadlock wheels with RockStompers.

At first I experimeted with leaf-springs and varous wheels. But ended up with 4-link

That leaf setup was very interesting, why did you change and go 4-link? Were the TLT cantilevers some type of double shackle setup? The steering is also cool, what parts did you use for it?

Yes I used the tlt catilvevers as chackles.
The setup was to unstable as the leaf twisted when submitted to side force.
I maybe try with some better leafs later on.
The steering parts is old parts from my kyosho "scrap" box.:nice:
