Lcg crawlers


Recommended Posts

@steephill That looks decent and would be good to see it up against a high end LCG from one of the big hitters - I’d bet there wouldn’t be much in it.  I had an LCG itch 3yrs ago that I never scratched, and it came back recently after I decided to rebuild my 10.2 - that’s why I put the wanted add up.  I joined the GS U.K. Facebook group and one of the guys on there sold me a set of stock Capra axles (waiting on their delivery) That’s the first step towards scratching that LCG itch.  You’re not helping with posting pics of your sweet TRX4 though 😂

 I've ordered a Rhino yue one V2 chassis kit. 

Rhino capra axles, chassis, gearbox, links and driveshafts. 

So I'm gonna need wheels, tyres, shocks (probably 90mm desert lizards). I've got a 80a Rhino esc and 2250kv outrunner. And I have a 9imod 55kg servo that's pretty quick. 

And I'm not sure about the body. I ideally don't want to end with a 3rd of what's left of a perfectly good lexan body chopped up. 

So any suggestions will be welcome.

I've got a few that I can use to see what's going to fit the best. 

I've got a few proline cliffhanger, jconcepts creep, ftx texan cab and a few others so hopefully something will work.

Kinda looks like an MOA rig from that angle, and I know you said you didn’t want to chop up a shell, but that shape says ‘chopped Beatle’ to me 😎

It's more than likely gonna go that way 😂 I imagine there wouldn't be much left of a cliffhanger or creep body left.

Made a start on another chassis I got from aliexpress a while ago. 

I had to pull a truck to bits as I needed the axles. 

I've used a aliexpress lcg gearbox with overdrive, comes with a delrin skid. 

Desert lizard shocks, again. 

Injora brushed 5 slot motor, I've just finished soldering a 1080. 

A few bit to do, work out where the battery, esc and receiver are going. Fit drag link and servo horn. 

I'm going to get it running and test tomorrow.

I've got a proline 78 chevy k10 body I think I'm going to use for this one.

 

So far very good value. The chassis is about £40 with a delrin skid.

looks good and getting a body to fit it will be easier than the other 1 :good:

Yeah mate 👍. I've sat the k10 body on and it looks good. 

It's a 313mm wheelbase chassis for a scx10 ii so should fit alright.
