FAN FRIDAY FEATURED BUILD BY BREC BARRETT
Brec’s build info;
Brec Barrett here @barrett_rc so, I basically started with a sand scorcher body with the dream of making an a-arm long travel v8 Baja bug with trailing arms. Taking a lot of the inspiration from full size Baja bugs.
Chassis: 3/16 aluminum base plate attached to 3/16 stainless steel rod tig welded to fit snug up in the bug body made to utilize trailing arms and dual shocks all the way around with a skinny front skid plate. Back half has the Velineon 3s ESC with a plastic ls3 motor fan on top with a custom metal intake system. Custom cut plates with cut outs and netting for cooling and painted gloss black.
Sand scorcher body: painted with a dark metal flake red and a metal flake black with a gold pin stripe going through it.
Wheels:8 spoke gold aluminum 1.9 bead locks wrapped with old style BFG replicas
Shocks: King shock replicas by RC RUN with adjustable remote reservoirs using internal springs to help with the extra weight
Motor and trans: using a Traxxas slash transmission reversed in the chassis for room and handling and a Velineon 3500kv motor and slash driveshafts.
Front arms: Axial Yeti lowers modified to take dual shocks and custom stainless steel upper arms.
Rear trailing arms: 3/16 stainless steel plate with custom bearing carriers and dual shock mounts
Steering:20kg anodized blue servo with Traxxas Slash bell crank and turn buckles connected to slash c-hubs and castors
Seats: pro gray seats with 5-point seatbelts mounted to the stainless-steel battery tray & SRC plastic radiator with fan for scale looks.
