Ridgecrest gone tube chassis Hilux truggy
« on: May 29, 2014, 04:37:54 PM »
Well, this project started as a bone stock out of the box Ridgecrest.  Stayed in its stock form for about a week before the teardown.

Bought this, brand new, and now, All I am using from it are the axles, and transmission.  Hmm, should have pieced this project together im thinking  ;)

Motor/esc is a Tekin FXR with 35t HD motor
Servo is Hitec 7954sh
Spektrum rx/tx
2s 5300mah battery
DIY lights using led light strips
Proline Titus beadlocks (2.2)
Axial Krawler tires
Stock axial transmission + axles
Hardened steel cvd's in front
Aluminum chubs, knuckles, lockouts, axles braces
Gmade 103mm piggyback shocks
RC4WD winch
Wraith link kit
Homemade steering linkage



The start


Hacked those rails apart and changed it up. Test fitting the stock axial tranny/skid


Front and rear shock hoops




Side plates for body mounting installed


Nuts brazed onto plate for the body screws




The start of the rear


Start of the front fender bars.  Body was cut quite a bit and the nose was pinched




Front bumper on, and primed for paint



Fitted




All painted up and mounted







Lights!


Trying full droop. Using Gmade 103mm (IIRC) shocks


Really disliked the back end of this truck so decided to add bedsides to it.







Updated frame all painted up.



This is how she's sitting right now.  Still not totally done, but its a runner.



Thanks for looking!

Tyson.
