Default Hairba11's jugg, embiggenated. Bigfoot 5-ish

so project ADD kicked in, and i started working on something else.

picked up a jugg with upgraded axles and trans and started playing with it.

I got as far as reversing the link mounts on the front axle and chassis to put the trackbar 4 link on the inside to give me a little more clearance for some slightly larger tires.
i've had these kongs since my savage almost 8 years ago. I always have a plan for them but never use them because, well, they're too stinkin' big.
I've had this idea for a bigfoot style build for a while and finally have the chassis to do it.
the Jugg body will be removed in favor of a longbed king BF to stick with the early 90's feel. Bigfoot 5-ish.
and to keep this from being completely worthless, i managed to take one progress pic before calling it a night.



looks like i'll have about 1/2" between the edges of the tires at full steering lock.

quick update, although it shows a couple hours work and an hour of head scratching.

pulled the stock battery tray and made room for my 1/4 scale servo mount in the rear of the chassis for the front axle.
replaced the no-name plastic geared servo with a broken ear with a 200 oz-in MG995 china special for the rear steer.
came up with a servo mount and got the 300 oz-in 1/4 scale servo mounted up, then fired up the lathe an made a custom 7.5" steel drag link which allowed reuse of the Jugg rod ends for the front steer.


next will be some maxx shaft drive lines and some electronics, then time for body fitment and finishing.

i think i need to make a sedan mold to form baking pans over for aluminum crush cars.

and in 60-90 days, i should be able to move out my house mate and rent this place, set up a real space for working on rc in the house, move in my fiance so i quit having to spend entire weekends over at her place and should actually be able to get some projects done instead of sneaking in a couple of hours a week.
the 5-ton will get done!

slight update.

rewired the motors in series from parallel, switched to a mamba max esc robbed from another truck and running on 3s lipo.
makes the 20t motors run on 1.5s
should have decent power without too much overheating while not actually being strong enough to break the axles with these huge tires.

my usual flawless neat wiring job


and a short video showing the independent front and rear steer. rear steer is just on a 3 position setup to make it easier to center. also showing plenty of pep even with 5.6 volts going to each motor. only one driveshaft installed right now, after all it is just a minor update.

actually the body's wheel arches are about 8mm too short. not real noticeable. i got the rear centered and the front comes in about 5/16" closer to the bumper. i figure in nose overs it will help keep the grill from getting hit.

also looking at paint. got started tonight with a duplicolor ford silver metalic.

in 48 hours i can mask off and go for a dark blue metalic top coat, thinking of leaving the rockers and lower doors silver like this


but the blue is going to be closer to this truck


and here it is with color coat 1
