Default IFS LR3 "Rock Racer"

I have begun collecting parts for my winter build. I started off down the road of making a Baja Bug Rock Racer. I just couldn't get enthused about the body, so I hunted around the net until I found the LR3. I was hoping for a lighter body, but whatever. I am going to build a front interior, but the back will just be flat cargo area. Maybe where the spare is stored??

My plan is to use a solid axle rear and a highly modified Slash front end. That is where the IFS part comes into play. My goal is to have a Summit 2 speed trans and maybe a transfer case. It would be nice to have the trans up front. Not sure how the space will be with the IFS though. I am also planning on making my own chassis and definitely an exo-cage

This will take some time, but when I get parts I will update.

I am going to shorten the upper links and use a rear lower link. I still need to work out exactly which one, but it should narrow it in a bit. The CC01 is a god idea, but I am looking for a bit beefier suspension.

I got my truck in today and it is pretty sweet looking. I can see a lot of potential, but there are a few hurdles to overcome first. I measured my SCX10 wheel width from outside to outside of the tires. It is right at 9" with the Rok Lox. I then measured the LR3 which is 7 1/2" fender to fender. So I have a goofy looking ride if the axles stay the stock width. After some searching and brainstorming I got my answer.

First I will set aside the spacer on both sides of the axle. Then I will cut the axle shaft and remove a section from the middle. A coupling will be fabbed with a tight tolerance. This will be soldered together to end up with a shortened shaft. The bearing will fit into the stock location the front axle uses. Sorry for anyone not familiar with Axial, you will have to wait for pics. I bought an axle tonight. The axle spacer will be cut down so the only thing left is the part that pinches the end of the axle together. I will need to come up with a way to prevent the bearing from sliding out, but that should not be too bad. The end result will give me a outside to outside tire width of 7 3/8". Just shy of my 7 1/2" fenders!

Hopefully some pics to come shortly,

Wes

Just a tad under 7 1/2" not counting the chrome plastic sliders. The fenders only flare out a slight amount.
