Got a few things done on both Ricecake and the RC Crawler tonight. On the Crawler I decided to get serious since I need to defend RS's honor at Rubi. It is now tubed! I redid several things and created more work to do to get it finished but it's looking wicked! I even scored some soft compond BFG Crawler look alikes that I will be mounting up on the beadlocks with some new delron rock rings. I'll click a pic tomorrow as I'm headed to bed but I gained several more degrees of articulation.......it can achive a full 90* now between the front and rear axles! Need to make skins for the tube body and of course make some very small RS logos!

Default Crawler is operational!

Spend some time on the little beast today. Lot of detail and tweaking still to do but the basics are wired and assembled. Need to make, paint and decal skins too. Little creature is a bad boy!

Thanks Wes! Just ordered one of those 'pensive little dudes. When I made the cage I was gonna make it so I could put a lexan Cruiser grill in it but I choose to save time and didn't do it. I also made the cage out of solid rod instead of brake line, again to save time. These keychains are perfect!


Thanks for the Kudo's y'all! Fun little thing and it will morph again as I learn more RC Crawling schtuff. This is version 2.0!

Wow, that thing is awesome! And as gasoline prices continue to rise, you'll still be able to wheel as much as you want.

Heat Exchanger in
Need to mount the pump and figure out the connects and misc

Have to move the Fan switch to the left side of the dash to make room for a throttle cable

Take rear seats out and figure out how to load everything

Put RTT on and make sure brackets work
