Back doing something stupid again. Stupid and fun. Im having a good time going overboard with my "$35 trail truck." These kits are fine for light trailing but i was bored and decided i wanted to try my own concept. I know its not pretty from the bottom but it works. I would love to 3d print a mount and flatten the belly but it is what it is. Ridiculous and pointless.. maybe....

      Off center hole in the yoke of the drive shaft LOL "Use a drill press and get it centered". 540 stock motor LOL "Low wind/turn motors have no torque, use a higher wind/turn motor 35 to 55 turns" The shock mounts LOL "Either notch out the chassis rails or flip the shock mounts over so they lay flat on the chassis"  Gear box LOL "small drive gear of motor and a large spur gear to will only lessen the torque, the motor should have a large gear and the trans should have a smaller spur gear than the motors drive gear". Thanks for wasting my time.

      WORLD'S MOST INSANE..........

      Okay. Do tell.
      Hmmmm. Am doin a lot of the same. NOT that big can motor though. Don't really need that much torque.
      But......I DO have a Traxxas Verlineon brushless motor sitting around.

      +Hooptie Rides&Reviews Uh huh. That brushless is from my Stampede, may it RIP, was gonna stick it in my 2wd Slash, but the OBA, On Board Audio may cause issues? So, it's collecting dust.
      Thinking the FAA WILL NOT allow me to pilot it under my UAVs permit for my quads.
      What do YOU think? A bit on the too high RPM side?
      I can mod the aluminum single speed gearbox to fit, put a LiPo in the bed, the Traxxas ESC in the cab?, But,
      am thinking twisted frame, the brass P and S gears de-toothed and lots of air time. Or.....a crumpled heap of molten styrene, magic smoke and the dreaded ' walk of FAIL. I hate that 😁😭.

      This is going to be a recommendation I recommend the demon sr4 a the cheap one you're going to love this build I just bought this truck it's better than the expensive one cuz the battery lies in the middle and the part of the honcho back looks better than the expensive one and it's not top heavy $269 you have a controller you have ESC controller and Battery that's all you need and I have done some upgrades if you get it you're going to see what I mean upgrades I've done front bumper and lights in the top fantastic truck you get this truck you'll be thanking me anybody that gets this truck will be thanking me

      definite "Captain Insano" power there, Tim Allen would approve! I'm pretty happy with a pair of these things: https://www.ebay.com/itm/16MM-DC-5V-12V-Mini-Full-Metal-Gearbox-Gear-Motor-Speed-Reduction-DIY-Robot-Car/323222217245?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&var=512295756103&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649
      the 12v 855 rpm works out to be 790-ish on 3S and 530-ish on 2S, was a breeze making the center casing for them, and cheepo 20A ESC is plenty. 2S gives a decent walking pace, plenty of torque, they hold position on really steep inclines too. makes the WPL dual N30 setup look slap silly weak (hey WPL take note!). haven't done it yet, but Gabriel Silvaz has sliced the hood to open for battery placement right up front with easy access.
      rim weight? wrapped them tight with 2mm solder between the tire beads, 3 wraps stretched electrical tape cut a little wider (narrows as it's stretched), with a spot of CA at the end to keep the e-tape locked compressing the solder to the rims. it's not a fast setup but does climb really well.

      I think you're crazy.  Crazy!  Well, at least the title of this video is accurate  XD  Seriously, can't wait to see the running video of this!  It might twist the chassis..... in half!

      lol yup, curious here too. kinda think ECX Doomsday trans with 390 motor might have been a much easier unit to fit in the frame rails... oh well! just plunked down comment about what I've slapped into my C-24, it's not a fast setup, but strong climbing.

      Since you have metal links the easiest way to is the angle on your axles. Is just too make the top Lynx a little longer and it will change the angle of your axle making it more straight into the drive shaft.

      Yes but mine arent adjustable. Also if you do that on the front it messes with steering angle

      at this point, look to the MN-D90 recently released. barely larger but has larger axle casings with larger bevel gears in them, larger drive shafts and U-joints.
      "a285004" hydraulic shocks look to be a pretty good fit for it (seen on Gabriel Silvaz channel) with very simple to make extension plates.
