It does have pretty noticeable body roll on acceleration though.

Put the aluminum brace on (from rc4wd.com) to strengthen the upper link mounts..

Very large gears.. (wrench there for size comparison)

Also, special finish on the first two gears into the axle.. compare to the typical cast gear (you can see the difference side by side)..

Should be pretty strong.. these 2 shafts are supported by 6 ballbearings..

Yes, SIX!

This was the fix that Tamiya came up with after reported issue when the first Juggernaut came out..

Basically, the Jugg 2 axle..

The axle has a built in gear reduction, that's why the diff gear is on a straight gear, not bevel gear...

This also pushes the driveshaft up so it gains some clearance.. !!

Everything rides on 12x6mm bearings.. larger than the typical 11x5mm that Tamiya uses..

Almost there... I guess I build things kind of slowly, eh?! I guess I just want to take my time and do everything right the first time!

Needs to do some soldering work, build the shocks, put the electronics on, and it should be ready to go!!

Should be plenty stout on the electronics front...

All Novak line-up.. SuperDuty XR, XXTra synthesized receiver, and a capacitor for the BEC just for kick..

Yea, even with the anti-roll bar. It tilts to one side when I accelerate and the other when I reverse... :\

My mom actually asked me if I was done tightening all of the screws coz of the body roll... LOL!

Yea, BB's are high on my to get list. Plus its fun taking it and putting it back together!

I guess that's the issue w/ all long travel shaft drive cars.. I mean, TLT is like that too!

Definitely need to run stiffer oil on the back!

Also, move the anti-roll bar to full stiff setting!

Well I took pics of the Novak anti glitch capacitor.

Apparently its a Matsu****a/Panasonic (noted by the T on top of the cap and the M in a box) FM cap (good high end stuff) thats rated for 10V 5600uF. As for supporting Novak, the capacitor is $1.30... So thats quite a lot of support from me already (I knew the mark ups would be astronomical.) LOL!

If you wanna look head over to www.digi-key.com and search this product number P12363-ND.

Yeah, but if you order from digi-key, you'd need to order a bunch, pay shipping, etc. And also, you need to get that servo connector so you can plug into the RX.. etc.

Doesn't that worth the extra money for ya?!

Retarded, but cool in a weird way..

Rolling wouldn't be an issue with belt drive!

Imagine that - belts going down from the trans to the diffs replacing the drive shafts.

A lot of left over 5x8mm bushings.. used 2 of them as spacers for the front lower links.. this add some caster angle to give the car some high speed stability..

It is not gonna be a solid axle design if you are going to run belts to the axles!!

Put some rubber tubing over the anti-roll bar, so the zip tie will hold its position better.. (zip tie won't slide up and down the bar so easily..)

Where did I get them?! They are the tubes that cover the 540 silver can shafts when you take them out of Tamiya's package..

You could still put a 'solid axle' casing over the diff. Just add 2 belt tentioners on the top and bottom of the entrance to the case =).
