Default Pab's V3 GSPEED Refresh

So I've had this for a while now. Really enjoy it on some lines, but feel its time for a re do to keep me happy

I'm happy with the electronics so can't see too much changing there

So it needs a bit of rearranging and tiding.

It runs the amazon dig gearbox converted to 32dp with the biggest Kimbrough Spur I could fit with a 9T Pinion and a micro servo in an adaptor plate. Clearance is close with the front shaft which leads me on to my main issue...
The front shaft is stuck on and I've broken countless drill bits trying to get it off, one day it will be removed!

The front bumper was modded by me to be barely class 2 `22 legal and incorporate a fairlead for a kenetic style setup I made up as DSM wont ship to me


AR44 axles with some brass added are on at the moment. It Runs a prototype battery tray I designed that also has guides for the kenetic setup and a rock light mount.

Now its printed and installed I can see there is room to go lower and still clear the links so it will get a redesign at some stage, possibly incorporating a dig servo mount and anything else I can get moved to the front along with it.

Speaking of lights, I also have some emergency lights I velcro to the inside of the roof for the midnight emergencies

First of the new mods was to try some tread trimming for my first time on my pretty worn krawlers before they get binned for somthing else, excuse the dog hair

Anti Foams are on the inside

I've not driven with this yet, but I've stuck a link riser on to test with

Next up will be to cut and drop the bed and rework the front axle with some Beeftubes, stay tuned!

So I got some parts together and built me a new axle

Only things that came from the old axle are the diff cover, knuckles and the overdrive gears. The knuckles (10.2) requred some reworking and the XR10 axles are extra wide so I had to also mod the SSD wraith C hubs to make everything happy and work together.

Now I need to work out if I should get some kind of panhard mount or go 4 link, which would open up SOA options.

Got things back together, with a few temp links, nearly ready for a test run. Ended up moving all the electronics from the sliders to the front and mounting the dig servo directly to the chassis rail. Now balanced with a 50/50 side weight front and rear, and looks a little more tidy. Also stuck a set of tuning rounds in the wheels to test with.

Once it been run in this config i'll decide what's next, but I have options to add even more weight to the front axle and remove some elsewhere.
