of mine managed to get a more GPM parts for me from Hong Kong. These are
very well machined parts and nicely anodized too. In the US, they are
distributed by HobbyEtc.
Check out the new additions
to my rig: suspension links,
front and rear chassis mounts - all made from an alloy to be light yet
strong. The machined links have 11 holes in them to relieve weight and
look very cool. Rather than being machined first and then anodized, these
parts were machined, then anodized, then machined some more so that there
are silver accents which look awesome.
Bottom view of the
parts. Note the blue booties which protect the universals. The guy who
makes these - Freddy - is sending me some new ones which will look even
cooler. Not shown are a set of GPM steel heavy-duty universal drive shafts
which I also bought but haven't installed. I'll wait till the stock set
wear out first.
On the left, a pic of the gearbox heatsinks which are new on the Juggernaut2.
Some cool blue hardware keeps the look consistent with the rest of the
truck. On the right is a pic of the new chassis mounts for the truck.
A set of front and rear stiffen up the chassis and also make the truck
look exceptionally trick.
how a lot of the material is removed to relieve weight but don't be mistaken,
the piece is very light. Great care has been made to ensure the parts
look their best too. Rather than sell one identical design for the front
and rear pieces, the rear is slightly different with 4 holes drilled to
mount the stock body mount.
A bottom and side pic of the chassis. You can see clearly the custom body
mounts to mount the F-150 lexan shell. The suspension has been set to
allow the truck to sit a little lower than stock to have a lower CG (less
roll) and yet still have maximum articulation.
More pics of the chassis
from different angles. The last pic is a little dark but that one was
taken in my room at night. This chassis is really a work of art. The truth
is that it is becoming too nice to run. I'd hate to put any scratches
into those cool machined links.
out some new pics with my digital camera here!
