So I made a start and stripped down my donor machine the other night (no photos – just a stock rolling chassis).
Now – transplanting bits to the new chassis plate, and putting things together.
Motor is mounted, and diffs/driveline.
Top plate needs some modification to fit the new motor (Dremel to the rescue!).
I need some other bearings to do the Traxxas spur mod, so that’s going to be delayed – gives me a next stage of updates, so that’s cool.
Next up is steering assembly, then on to the electronics (cutting, soldering, fitting etc – I want this to be clean inside). Pictures below.
