Troy, you can root around in there all you like, but you'll want to take a shower afterward. It's more cluttered and dirtier than my workbench

Woke up early this morning, so I made a grille and extended the hood just a tick

By the way, how you wanna mount this thing? Should I fill the screw-holes in the lower doors, or no?

Default Mounting

Stu, I planned on velcro....and LOTS of it. What do you think? It's a good thing I am typing this because I still haven't recouped enough to speak after seeing the work you've done so far. THANKS STU!

instead of velcro, I'd recoment dual lock, It's made by 3M and like the plastic side of velcro but on both sides. When ya put them together they click in place and it holds really strong.

I got mine at Target. It's like sever strips in a pack or you can get rolls too I believe. This is what I use to hold my ESCs and RXs in my cars and trucks. And it only moves when there is a really hard hit. but otherwise verything stays in place.

First of all, Stu that is absolutely amazing. Second, I think I'll have to check out that stuff from 3M-I use velcro in my trucks and it doesn't work very well...

ya, that dual lock is great. And ya don't need much. I use only like a .5 x .75" piece for the receiver, I first time covered the whole bottom, acutally seperated the RX case trying to take it off. Had to pry it off with a screwdriver I use a .75 x 1" piece for the super rooster, and that is a heavy esc. Never had it come loose either.

Working on the right side now. The hard part is making them symmetrical

Dremelit, what's the scoop on the pink insulation foam? you shape it and coat it with what? it seem like if you coat it with the wrong stuff, and it will melt before your eyes. otherwise it looks like an awesome build so and at a rapid pace!

Default model buildup of wheel

Here is a rendering of the wheel. It's not final yet but it gets the idea out there. It's based on the Alcoa Super Single "widebase" wheel that they use on the actual "supertruck" I have yet to take into consideration the tlt axel width. I will make the hub adapters to match up the overall track of the front and rear of the 1:1. The geolanders are a pretty close match and will look nice on these wheels I think.



The wheel on the right is ultimately what I'm shootin' for.
