spent most of the day working on it today and made some good progress. i now have the transmission finished, the center bulkhead is bolted in, brakes are mostly figured out, and the driveshaft is cut to length. i started making a pilot shaft, however didnt get very far on it, just enough to do some more mock up for pics.





hoping to get both pilot shafts made tomorrow and finish the 2nd clutch bell off.

havent had a lot of time again, but i did manage to get some more machining done tonight. the slots are now in the chassis and the motors are mounted.




it was time to put a little more of the car together to figure some more stuff out. the fuel tanks and throttle servo are just sitting in place right now

ive had some questions about the milling machine im using, i figured id post some pics and a video of it cutting my top plate.



the rear portion of my top plate after cutting



everything i got cut today. the top left is my intake manifold and manifold adapter, a brake spacer, and the top plates.



the top chassis plates sitting on the car



and as a bonus i thought id post a video of the mill cutting the rear section of the top plate

Nice work!!
Very clean looking build.
What are you thinking in terms of exhaust system?

thanks. havent put too much thought into exhaust yet. id like to do dual exhaust out the back but itll be far too long and kill high rpm power.

im actually thinking about dumping the exhaust under the left side of the car. kinda hard to see in the pics but there is a channel in the plastic. i could bring the exhaust down there and the headers would end up the right length and i can get mufflers in to do that.

sorry for the lack of progress guys, work has been taking all my time up lately. i didnt even get a chance to so much as look at the car for 2 weeks. the project isnt dead (i have been asked by some), its just been at the back of my mind

i got some small things done the past few days, but nothing pic worthy on their own. im hoping to have the rest of the machining and fitting on the big stuff done before the weekend so i can get it all coated. look for an update early next week.

well not the big update i was hoping for. i tried to get all the parts powder coated this weekend, turns out the blue powder i thought was going to match the traxxas blue was too far off. i had to order some other powders and hope to have them by the end of the week.

none the less i do have some pics



thats the new brake setup. im now using savage dual red fiber discs. those brakes are strong enough to do a complete front flip with my extended chassis savage, they should be plenty of braking to stop this car.


the receiver battery and aluminum hold down. the battery is a turnigy LiFe 1450mah, no need for a regulator with it. the hold down is pocket milled so it sits down on the battery, no way it can come out of there.


i did get some parts coated. flywheels and clutchbells are done in semi gloss black and the top plates are chrome smoke, its a very close match to the factory chassis and top plate.

powder coating is now finished and the car is going together for the final time.






still waiting for a few parts to show up to build the throttle and brake linkage, and i need to build some brackets for the telemetry rpm sensors.

ive been slowly picking away at it and im almost done.







at this point its very close to done. the linkage is all done, exhaust is done. im not entirely happy with the exhaust, however i was limited on space so i had to compromise a bit. it comes out in the channel under the car as you can see in the underside shot of the car. i still havent built mounts for the telemetry rpm sensors, and i havent hooked servos or put the temp sensors in, so i still have a few things to do. i also need to figure out a starter box, the one i have isnt going to work out (associated for nitro tc3, set up for a sideways mounted motor). i tried it on an ofna pink starter box, also doesnt look promising. im hoping i dont need to build my own starter box for this beast.
