PostSubject: Project Dark One V 2.0 (Now a scale Brat)   Tue Dec 15, 2009 7:32 am

The Dark One Tuber is no more it has become a scaler.
Well Since it has arrived i had to get started on this thing. I bought the Chassis and body from a member on scale4x4. The cab was damaged in transit from what it appears..i knew there was one crack in the area so i was anticipating some damage there. I made the choice last night to disassemble my black Tube crawler known as Dark One to supply its suspension and drivetrain to this scaler. Im having more fun building scalers then i was building Dark One originally. However I simply look at it as evolution of the original rig. Along with the drivetrain comes the name since the original RTR that the parts came from had the name first.. all that really changed was the chassis again. I will probably rebuild the Black Tube rig as a rock racer later on. Anyways here is the spec list as it stands at the moment.

Novak Rooster Crawler ESC
Reedy 55T Motor
Stock AX10 RTR Transmission and axles
HPI Wheels
Tamiya Highlift Tires
4 Link suspension in the front using links from the Black Tube rig
Stock AX10 RTR 3 link suspension in the rear.
Futaba Servo converted into a winch mounted in the rear
Stock AX10 RTR Servo in the front


I will probably pick up a Rear wheel steering linkage kit to replace the stock RTR Linkage for the steering due to the chassis mount for the servo in this form.

On to the pics. Figured i would take some pics of the semi completed rig with my previous scale project (Project Blackfoot). There will be some updates on that truck soon as well in its own thread.







Sorry for the dark pics...figured i would go the quick route and use my canon Powershot camera to take them...i forgot how dark the pics are from it indoors...

Got a few more pics with the Toshiba camera after working on the suspension a bit. I still plan on going with different shocks later on figured i would make the stock AX10 parts work for now though.
Did some repairs to the cab and removed the broken T top part from the glass to give it the appearance of simply just having the T Top out on that side.

Looks pretty cool, is it going to get a color change?

Seems to have pretty good articulation for a scaler.

Keep it up looking good so far.
