FAN FRIDAY FEATURED BUILD BY JAMES ATKINS
The calendar may say November, but we are heating this Friday up with James’ build.
James build info:
So I snagged this awesome body off eBay and started doing some research. Everyone builds tow rigs out of these so I decided to go outside the box and make it into a truggy. I out sourced the frame and exterior cage work to one of the best fabricators in the RC world Pimpincrawlers (Ryan). When I got it all back from Pimpincrawlers the work was just… WOW! For axles I added a pair of Vanquish Curries in wraith width. Not only will they help set this build off with great looks but they will hold up to some serious abuse. The transmission is out of a Traxxas Summit so I can have slow crawl ability or switch to high speed for some ripping, tire spinning fun! Powering this monster rig is a Mamba max X ESC with a Tekin 3500kv HD brushless motor. For the winch I used a 200oz Juggernaut servo Winch that would surely pull this big 15lb rig out of any sticky situation. This build still has a few things left I want to do a full light kit to go with my RcMadDog light bar and a rear servo winch.
