FAN FRIDAY FEATURED BUILD BY ANDREW DYKIEL

FAN FRIDAY FEATURED BUILD BY ANDREW DYKIEL

Andrew’s build info;

This whole project dubbed “Thumper” started out as just a bare chassis I had received in trade from a friend of mine and fellow RC’er.I had a vision in my head of what I wanted the outcome to be and drew up some ideas on a piece of paper and next thing I knew I had a plan of what I wanted this to turn into. I built this truck in about 4 months, basically from start to finish just in time for its maiden voyage at the local G6 Competition, I was helping host. I started building back around Jan-May 2017 and May was our comp lol.  I ran Thumper through the competition that year and it performed flawlessly. Unfortunately, the build did leave my hands and changed hands a few times over several years but as fate would have it, Thumper found its way back home to me and here is where it will stay.

Thumper is built with a lot of stock parts I had laying around but also a lot of custom-made parts and upgraded parts from Axial and here is a quick list of everything.

  • SCX10 front and rear axles
  • ax10 trans with all metal internals
  • 32t pinion with a 56t spur gear
  • Custom made aluminum 4-link front and rear link rods with Traxxas ends
  • Axial Racing alum steering link setup with a stock Axial 180oz servo which I waterproofed myself
  • Aftermarket knock-off king off-road 110mm shocks with faux reservoir
  • Custom built Aluminum battery tray and chassis plate
  • Stock Axial 27T motor
  • Hobbywing 1080 esc with xt60 connectors
  • Tamiya F350 hardbody which that I custom hand modified the bed area to fit the cage in the rear
  • Custom body mounts I made from PVC sheet i milled out on my mill
  • 9 PitBull Rock Beast XL tires with PitBull Foams
  • 9 Aluminum Beadlock wheels
  • Custom made LED Headlights powered by a 9V battery
  • LED lightbar on the roof is a new addition just recently
