    Putting my scx10 on a diet

    Well my poor scx10 he got fat. Some one just kept feeding it metal bumpers sliders etc. So when on trail runs it performs very well, however after going to a few of the North Texas scale crawlers comps I learned it need a special diet carbon fiber. So I ordered a chassis and links from nerby and a set for krl's to help start off the diet

    Here is an update. I got the parts coming for the xr10 mod for the front axle

    I also picked up a set of koyosho velvets shocks these things are amazingly smooth! I installed a delrin tubes for the rear axle housings for strength. So for a update on weight I weighted it earlier and I'm under 5lbs with body and battery.

    Very cool.

    Can you tell me more about the under drive / over drive gears?

    I just got my first rock crawler the other day (scx10-2), still learning the in's & out's of these things.

    The over drive in the front helps by pulling the front wheels up and over obstacles quicker and it also helps you turn in a tighter circle. The under drive in the rear helps keep the rear axle/tires from digging in and getting caught up under a ledge etc. The other advantage is it pulls the truck down on to the rock. https://youtu.be/m0Wee_byRXw

    In this video you can see how they under over help me climb up a very steep and tall rock face. They don't make a under over gear set for the scx10 II yet but someone will and soon is my guess. Give me pm if you need help or want to get together to comp/crawl.

    That was a pretty steep climb in the end. Very impressive, Snapon boy. I love the blue color on that crawler by the way.
