very cool and much more 'scale', since none of the 1:1 rigs use an independant suspension. Is the kit based around an AX-10 rear axle?

Wheely King straight rear axle with the HPI WK wideners.

I will provide instructions on what parts to use inside the Wheely King axle. I have lots of different gears and shafts etc ... and I'm just experimenting with them now.

I have pitched this to RC4WD so hopefully they will run with it.

If its popular I will design a more scale rear axle case for it too.

Is it compatable with the RC4WD slash cage?

I dont know for sure but I just looked at the mounting points for the cage and it looks like it should be fine.

Very, very, nice.....my only concern would be that having the weight in the back really helps get forward bite from the not too grabby stock tires. Moving it farther forward might make the back end very squirrelly. All in all though, looks great, i'd be interested in one.

Thanks for the comments.

I weighed all of the components before I started and it should be ok. The weight of the axle, frame plus the weight of the tranny and motor should be enough to give it rear grip. The battery is in the front half of the chassis but very close to the middle.

That's very cool! I like the solid rear indy front, just like their 1:1 counterparts.

Long overdue. Will look awesome with that pro-line body with the removable "damage" panels.
