Hi williezcr8.
What drive shafts are you using? And where did you get them?

Thanks
Aub

Punisher shafts from RC4WD.
Here's the front(just ordered it)
http://store.rc4wd.com/Punisher-Shaf...ift_p_817.html

Here's the rear
http://store.rc4wd.com/Super-Long-Pu...5mm_p_820.html

Because this such a long chassis, I didn't want to try using plastic shafts modified for the extra length...I wanted something strong and also scale. I painted it black and will do the same when the front gets here. I need to get another tranny because I used my 2 spd for my Brute, but RC4WD was out of the HD R2.

I'm not sure, but I would suspect 6mm being the Summit is a large truck.

Just checked it out, they are 6mm output for the drives but spur shaft is 5mm. Would be a strong tranny but it looks like it has pretty large housing.

Yeah, I've never seen the Summit trans but have seen a few Revo trannies. Not as compact as the R2, but I'd say way more durable, and a nice gear spread for crawling or careening down the trail or road.
Not saying anything against the R2, I just don't think they made the gears beefy enough, and RC4WD is the only place to get replacements.

All I need is one of these and to fab up some kind of motor mount.

Shoot, I filled the diff in my Pede tranny with threadlock. Well not filled but left enough room for expansion and it was pretty solid.
I have a Revo tranny I've been wanting to use in something bigger like this, for the useless coolness of having shiftable reverse lol.

Yah, I could have done that, but I can't find the diff gears for it. If I have to go and buy another set, then I'll just spend a couple more $$ and get the locker/spool.

Never even seen a Revo trans. What's the gear ratio for it? The Nitro 'pede trans is 3.75. I also have a TRX-1 tranny that I think is about the same size as the Axial trans, but has a gear ratio of 2.16.

What do you think is a good final drive ratio for an all-around trail runner? For example,
Pede Trans - 3.75
Spur/pinion - 87/14=6.21
Killer transfer - 1/1
Axle ratio - 2.53

Final drive=58.91

Dropping the pinion down to a 10T=82.54 final drive.
I think the SCX10 works out to be about 41 final drive. I don't know how fast the SCX is, but it seems to work for those using it. Any idea what the gear ratio is on the R2?

Well, I got the Nitro "pede trans together...just needs a motor plate fabbed up. If this doesn't work out, then I'm going for the R2 HD.

Got the new Punisher and I don't know how I measured, but it's too short. Oh well, I can always use it somewhere else.

Been really busy working for past 3 weeks, but managed to squeeze in some time this weekend on the body.

Got the firewall built in to it...this took some some time. Since this piece pretty much dictates the size for the rest of the entire body, I was trying to make sure it was right.


Added the floor supports


Finally got the trans tunnel in...this was tough, with all the compound angles. Started to add some of the details, like the master cyl access pnl, transfer case access port and center access pnl. Just need to do the shifters and tunnel and add some screws every where, then move on to the tool box.

WOW, great fab work on the tunnel. I really like the look of this. Coming along nicely for sure.
