Default screamin 2

Sorry I started the post a little back a$$wards. This was alot of first for me, its my first scratch build tube chassis from the ground up and my first real post and just figured out how to post pics with my Droid since I don't have a computer. Anyway on to my build. I seen lots of videos on YouTube of Jordan Tanner with his screamin 2 southern buggy and fell in love with it. After seen builds by other people on this site and others I figured that I would give it a shot. Well here is a pic of my inspiration followed by some pics from my build.

I made the chassis out of 3/16 brake line and used 45% safety silve brazing wire. I also went and bought a rtr axial wraith to use the skid plate ,axles ,gearbox, links and interior. I only played with the wraith for about 15 min before ripping it apart so I could mock it up.

The proportions on the front end are a little off, but overall, this is a MAJOR undertaking and you really should be proud of how it turned out! This is one of my favorite southern buggies and I've been plotting a build like this for about 9 months now. Very cool!

Thanks. I have seen videos of your truck before, not to bad yourself. Building the chassis wasn't too bad. I watched some how to videos on YouTube and did some research on the best methods for brazing. It would've turned out better but I got in a hurry (wife) late night project after work. I made mistakes early in the build and got to far before I realized and didn't want to go back and redo it all. The roof line came out to low and made the rear top come out a little off. But I am happy with it for the most part.

Here is a couple pics after a bath from mudding.

I will get some pics of it wheeling soon and maybe a video if I can figure out how to.

Honestly it's only about $70-$100 for tools and material to build your own chassis. I bought a Klein tools 3/16 tube Bender, 24 feet of brake line, Harris 45% silver brazing rod, flux, map gas all for about $100. The only other things you would need is something to cut the tubing and a round file to concave the ends that butt up with other tubing and nuts or washers to braze to the frame to mount body panels if so desired. Welding magnets come in handy too just don't apply direct flame on the magnet, its not good!
