Today my kit arrived so I began sorting through the bits and pieces and got a start on the build. I got the proline wheels together, built the diffs, shocks and got a few other things together up to bad D. I've got the Castle SCT Sidewinder and 1410 3800kv system and will see if I can get it going slow enough while maintain power otherwise I'll get a brushed motor to stick in it. I got the waterproof Hitec 5646 servo for the steeringand will run a spectrum marine RX so everything will be waterproof. I'm not sure who'll have more fun, me or the kids, lol.

It's a good kit, I just finished building mine, wasn't really impressed with the trepador tyres tho. Other than that it's a weapon. I run a tekin pro4 3300kv and a mmp. Tried a 3900kv but it cogged bad at low speeds had to go sensored

Yesterday I did a few sections of the build before and after bowls and managed to get standing with the wheels on. I'm really enjoying building this one, it's much more enjoyable than opening a RTR box. I've found one issue so far, the front brace that is in the chassis behind the front bumper (the one the front option battery tray screws to) hits the servo horn limiting the travel and movement. I looked at a few options and in the end removed the brace giving the suspension the full movement it needs. Has anyone else had this issue or is it the Hitec servo that causes this? One other thing that stumps me a little is all the left over parts, wtf, it's always a head scratcher when you build something to plan and double check everything and still end up with parts?
Here's a couple of pic's of yesterday's work. Today I'll paint up the shell and get the electronics going, I'm looking forward to taking the opportunity of the missus and kids not being home tonight so I can set up a track through out the house and test this thing out, lol.

Well I got it finished today and took it for a test run after work, I'm very happy with the way it's turned out. I set the esc to 90% punch control and limited the power output and it performed very well. I'm running a 15t pinion and it still wants to take off a bit so I adjusted the throttle trimming to 80%, it's pretty good, good enough for me. I ran a 2s 5000mAh Nano and after over 1 1/2 hours driving it still has plenty left in it.
Here's a few clean pic's.

I just gave it a bit of a wash up and plugged the lipo into the charger and it read 3.81v per cell so after all that bashing it was only 1/2 empty. I suppose I could drop back to a 2200mAh to lighten the weight on the rear and still get good long run times. I hooked the esc up to the laptop and made a couple of changes, the settings are now as follow:
Timing - 0 Lowest
Max Forward - 70%
Max Reverse - 40%
Punch Control - 90%
Braking - 40%
Drag Brake - 80%
And I put a slight curve on both the throttle and brake to smooth things out a tad better.
I'll give it another bash tonight in the same area to test the difference and let you know.

Cool, those esc settings along with setting the TX travel to 70% reverse and 65% forward done the job well. I went to the same area and found a few really good crawler spots and the truck handled it well. More grip up the banks and more drivable going down, the setting have this thing doing as it should. My wife and kids got home from Melbourne this evening so it was there turn to try it out. Backyard bashing in the sandpit and they loved it as much as me, it's a great truck for them and took all they could through at it. (they loved Woody too)

That piece in front of your servo will hit on most hitec or savox servos. You can either dremel it out , remove it or push it right forward and lose having a front bumper. I sacrificed the bumper for the forward battery location. I finally broke mine on the weekend and tore the left hand side wheel off breaking the chubs and demolished the gearbox. So il be putting in for metal upgrades this week

Let me know what parts you upgrade and how they go. I dremeled out the clearance in the brace and mounted the battery upfront, it makes a huge difference allowing the front to grip the rocks better and doesn't want to roll over backwards so much on the inclines.

Upgrades needed are alloy knuckles, chubs, rear lockouts, front CVD's, Robinson racing metal gears, and MIP honcho drive shafts. Axial make good alloy upgrade parts, or vanquish, there is cheaper options out there also

The castle combo will go in the wraith I ordered for the kids to have as a basher.

The mail man delivered a few packages today so I got in and made a few changes,
Now I understand about the power and torque needs of a crawler, the power deliver extremely smooth and now the truck gets over the rock garden with ease instead of bouncing across it and rolling over. The speed is a much better walking pace which I don't think my boy's will enjoy so much but it'll be awesome for me. I've made a couple of battery holders on the sides of the motor to centre the weight, I found it was back flipping with a 5000mAh up back and endo rolling down hill with it up forward. I'll run 2x 2200mAh 35-70c Nano's to give me a good long walk. Now I'm really loving this truck.

I went for a walk with my boys tonight and it handled steeper terrain and rougher obstacles than ever before, it's really well balanced. The new combo and the battery trays have made this thing much more fun than having a truck that was rolling down hills and needing flipping over all the time, tonight I had stuff all rollovers. 1000x happier.
