Default Bubbles 2.0 (pic heavy)

A little back story...

My Big F150 was built as a stock looking rig. Then I introduced my buddy to the world of crawling and helped him build a Bronco on big 5.9" tires. My F150 went up to 4.75" tires on deep dish rims... But that wasn't enough, so I stuffed 5.4" Tsl's under her and have been beating on her relentlessly.

She earned her nick name due to the fact that I was attempting a deep water crossing with a very loose sandy bottom. Normally the 3000kv motor on 3s was plenty to get through any crossing, and with my wheelspin I was making slow progress. Minutes later I managed to get a tire on the bank and drove out sucessfully, after making...


Wait for it...


Bubbles for 5 solid minutes. Thus the name. Bubbles.

Now I continued driving my F150, had a head on with my buddys Bronco and flolded the chassis. I bent it back fairly straight, but recently bent the rear of the chassis and decided I needed a 2.0 version...

Ok enough typing, I hate typing...










Frozen water...







On rocks...














And in her element....












And that brings us to the end of Bubbles 1.0

Ok next installment, Bubbles 2.0.

I was never really happy with her stance, while being super stable, she didn't have the flex I wanted(not needed) I had folded the chassis 4 different directions, and the body wasnt fitting right any more. So new chassis rails...

Strc aluminum scx10 rear shock towers up front, with 100mm traxxas big bores, and 70mm gpm aluminum shocks mounted to the trailing arms and the frame.



The wanted stance...



And after getting the body mounted...





Next to my Honcho...



Working on a front winch mount, and bumper...



And the bare chassis with the electronics hanging off it...



And a skid plate...



Thanks for watching
