    The shock towers are in there ruff stages. I will clean them up and paint them black. As for the LST shocks typs thatI'm using. They need stiffer springs. I'm going with the rovan spings they a a variable rate and much stiffer.
    It's starting to come together!

    No vids as it isn't done.
    I just got in the carbon fiber sheet in 2 days ago and made the center brace yesterday. I will post pics soon. I will be cleaning up the shock mounts as well. should be running soon. I will be running the toro esc with this build for now.

    This is a photo that shows the stock redcat Rampage shock and the new Losi LST style shocks. the length of the rear shock is the same as the Losi.

    RE: Long frame XBE/5ive build

    well I got it to run. the shocks need a lot of work. the shaft seals a shot! I have stiffer springs that will help, as soon as they get here. I love the power but it's really hard to drive with this kind of power and shot shocks. I have worked on the body and it looks great. I'm saving it for the up coming parade so it will be running with out the body until the parade.

    I ordered a OBR Full Comp motor that should be good for more speed. bottom end should pick up the most. The pipe I bought is a losi piece that I bought at the same time as the losi so that I tuned it with the pipe as well as the break in.

    So you can see that a lot of carbon and also a Kaiser t6 aluminum frame was added. here is a video that shows pictures of the build.

    Getting it right, finely!
    I'M BUILDING A PROPER SHOCK!
    What you see, is 4 rear Team Losi shocks being built. Still needing some parts. The adujustment collars and some seals that didn't make it in the rebuild kit.
    I will be adding an carbon brace that goes across the shock mounting studs so that they don't flex as well.

    I found the tension rings that I now have on order along with some green beadlocks to match the springs on the shocks. Picked them up on largescalerc.com

    I beefed up the front shock tower by adding another 2 mm bonded with epoxy.

    Looking good mate...a little CA glue painted on the edges of your CF will help to stop it from sharding.
