rc4wd subzero, bummer at westsyde scale ohv park
put the stock shocks back in, and added some details, mechanical problems
ended the day, got home to find the front diff resembled shredded cheese as
it fell out of the housing in 1.5 million peices. i don't think it was
caused by over stressing the part though.
1/5 Scale F150 Rock Crawler tackles Menai with NEW Narrowed rims
Wet day so not a lot of traction from the tyres on dirt / mud however has
made a noticeable difference on rocks allowing sidewall biters to bag up
and grip rock ledges much better.

first hustler vid
This is day one with my Hustler, just got the electronics installed and
wanted to try it on the rocks.
Update on some specs:
RC4WD 7075 Alum AXLES
RCP HUSTLER CHASSIS
TITAINIUM STEERING LINKS AND ROD ENDS
NARROWED 4.5" WHEELS
CUSTOM PANTHER SUPER TIRES
INTEGY 55T MOTORS ( FOR NOW)
DUAL SIDEWINDER ESC'S
REAR STEERING 333 OZ TITAINIM GEAR
FRONT STEERING 1/4 SCALE 300 OZ METAL GEAR
100 MM SHOCKS FOR NOW.
I'm going to rebuild this when I get a chance to improve CG, up the wheel
speed. I need to mod the chassis to get it to sit lower, add longer shocks
to add some travel, make new bent links for the lowers and a plastic skid
plate to help it slide.
Hope you like the test vid. Stay tuned for the final product. Anyone else
in Alaska have a super besides Tre???
I have no competition around here. lol
