    Long time no update, and this isnt a big update really.

    After having destroyed approx 6 spur gears in as many events I decided to upgrade to 32p. Its going to be louder but alot stronger and the weak point will still be the spur, which is still alot cheaper than drive train. I should the parts in this week and will post up how they go on.

    I also got the H2 rewired for last weekends awesome GTG and although it may not look alot cleaner, it is compared to what it was.



    Finally got those batteries in, and got them set up on Deans. I am suprised by how long my 1300mah 2s packs lasted in series (4s), I would estimate 30-40 minutes of solid crawling with a few spurts of horsepower thrown in to cover Tommy in slimey fungus crap:mrgreen: Im hoping these 1800mah packs last around an hour or more, I got 6 of them, so that should cover me for 3 solid hours:thumbsup:



    Also finally got my passenger installed. Used zipties to hold them in and was able to make them look like standard seat belts.



    I was lucky enough to also get a sampling of the new Acorn style nuts from LockedUpRC.com.

    Stock photo - hopefully will get these mounted this weekend.

    2 Spur gears:

    Traxxas Spur Gear 0.8P 58T Jato
    Duratrax Spur Gear 32P 56T Nitro Evader BX

    Both fit without modification and the 58T is the biggest you can fit with MIP drive shafts.

    Pinions:

    Robinson Racing Pinion Gear 32P 12T
    Robinson Racing Pinion Gear 32P 11T
    Robinson Racing Pinion Gear 32P 10T

    Sorry Tommy, I completely forgot to add a 87t Spur to replace yours I will be ordering a few things tonight and will be sure to get one.

    Sorry no pics, but I am finally gonna give a little TLC to this rig. Just ordered up a set of Vanquish VVD's and some nice VP-Pro tools (phillips head, 5.5 and 7.5 hex socket wrenches.

    Havent had any problems with the axial cvd's but I fear one day they will let go and should provide a little more piece of mind. I also believe the steering angle is a touch better with these. VANQUISH AX-10/SCX10 HEAVY DUTY AXLE SHAFTS




    Here is the 5.5mm socket driver to give you an idea of the quality.


    My plans include re-doing the skid plates similarly to how Patrick's H2 and Tommy's recent Jeep build are done. I also plan to braze in shock hoops, push the front axle out about 1/4" and lower the truck about 1/8" to help get the tires to tuck in a bit more for better scale appearance. Even though we seem to mainly be doing trail runs and such I expect this rig to be as compitition capable as possibe while still keeping a clean look.
