PostSubject: Building a Crawler/Scaler for freelllife04239   Tue Mar 24, 2009 10:41 am

My friend freelife04239 tried my crawler and cought the bug in a big way.

He bought a PTI Golioth PRO 12, and realized what a huge mistake he had made in that purchase.

He got it brand new.

Some lucky he got it at a super discount.



Well My buddy Saw the truck I built for another friend, and desided that if I built him one he would give me his Golioth, so I said sure why not its something to do.



Well lexan wasn't good enough for him so he pulls out a sheet of 1/4 inch thick CF.



''Make my frame from this'' he says



So it begins he started buying parts AX10 parts.



Axles

tranny

tranny plate

links

shafts

and a Novak Goat



Well I have started in on it last night and got the frame cut out.

Man is cf is nasty stuff to cut, I looked like I worked in a coalmine when I was done cutting it out lol



Well how about a few pics lol



Here is forst frame rail (see the mess on my bench well my face looked just as black when I was done)







Frame rails all cut, matched, and drilled for tranny plate.







And started mocking it up.













Oh ya and a pic with the body lol so yo can see what it is going to be Very Happy

LOL freelife left a dremal here he said to use his lol, good thing too cause it was getting tired by the end of it lol.

I didnt have a mask so did a lot of holding my breath lol

Well on the the update, I didnt get as many pics as I had hoped to lol
When I get going I forget to snap pics at times lol

But on to the pics


Got axles all mounted in, steering hooked up.





Manditory Articulation shot.



Electronics all in and hooked up. (RTR)



Center ground clearance 4.25 inches



Body all mounted and looking sweet.



Articulation Shots with body





The articulation shots with the body mounted are forced articulation.
I put 1/2 inch springs in the shocks to give it a little ride suspension and had to squat them to get the full artic. The tires do not touch the body when running.

Well I've put it through some testing and must say freelife will have one hell of a truck when its finished and I work out all the bugs.

I told free I can't paint his untill I finish 71goats body and hoping to get on that today.
I got final image all drawn on his body and should be finishing it up.
