Ok, sorry for the bad start, was at work and got excited. LOL

Original plan was to keep stock toy grade electronics but now....having to run a 1/4 mile drag...no more.

Here are some more picks as is now.

Chassis Tore down and ready for upgrade


Stock electronics with engine sound. I need to try and salvage this some how.


WK rear end. Not sure on mounting yet but width will work well.


XXXT front end, width also looks good. I will limit the suspension, no shocks at all.



Now I have been workin on this on and off for a bit so some body work is complete. I am going for the HotRod shop car look, rusted, primer panels and such.




1/6th scale installed. Hood will be closed but removable or hinged not sure which yet.




Interior will be complete with driver. I will have it in a finished state unlike the exterior.




Doors are out at the painters getting custom shop logo applied as well as some of the body work done to them.
Still have tons to do to this. I need to find wheels and tires large enough, been a struggle so far today.

Not sure on electronics or tranny yet, this speed stuff is all new to me.

Thanks for looking.

Here are some updated pics.

Tore the chassis completely down to figure out install of parts.


I am using a Losi XXXT indy front I had for the arms and suspension. These can be found pretty cheep on ebay but any 1/8 scale buggy front end will work.


For the rear I am using a Wheely King rear axle, also found on ebay.


Transmission will be Traxxas Stampede.
TRAXXAS STAMPEDE 3605 MAGNUM 272 TRANSMISSION GEAR BOX - eBay (item 270790623611 end time Aug-04-11 17:46:04 PDT)

Motor will be from a Traxxas Slash, this combo will give good speed as well as fun spins !
NEW TRAXXAS SLASH 2WD 12 TURN TITAN 550 MOTOR W/PINIONS - eBay (item 150636042952 end time Aug-21-11 17:33:17 PDT)

Rear tires and rims are a custom combo.
(2) Panther Mega Maxx Slick Monster Truck Tire T130S - eBay (item 370522325266 end time Aug-05-11 06:12:04 PDT)
DYNAMITE DYN7250 CHROME DISH 85mm WHEELS T-MAXX 2.5/3.3 - eBay (item 290559594468 end time Aug-23-11 15:56:13 PDT)

Fronts will be
NEW! Ofna 1/8 Street Tire Treaded w/o Belt (2) 86052 - eBay (item 330553462921 end time Aug-11-11 12:09:29 PDT)
NEW! IMEX Dish Chrome Silver 2.8 Front Jato (2) 7022 - eBay (item 290582297761 end time Aug-27-11 06:28:22 PDT)

These will get the old Moon hubcap treatment. I am waiting on parts now but will begin work on suspension front and rear...hoping this weekend but that all depends on what my wife has planned.

I'll keep updating as work gets done.

I would if it was a strict drag car but this is going to be one of those daily drivers....take to the strip, toss on a set of slicks and race !

Looking good. Search for "goodyear" in toys and hobbies>radio control in ebay, there's a few tires on there that might work for this.

omg, really love the rear tires

I think you may put all these horrible speakers in the garbage bin and build a roll-bar for a single-seater cool dragster XD

oh, and what about an high-ridin' stance?

Ya with the way it is going it may end up High like that. We'll see. So far everything I planned has been changed once parts get in.
