Default RE: my dirt tracker is back.

heres an update on this monster. i have got the suspension parts for it, but i had to hack up the chassis and back half it. it will be a 4-link in the rear, followed by a z-link setup on both sides of the rear. got to go charge my camera to get some pics of the way it stands, and the parts i have aquired![8D] hopefully gunna get a few motors to test in this beast by the end of the month. it will be chain driven. i have re drawn up the chassis.
old chassis on left:: new chassis on right

new chassis 46 in in length::: old chassis length 52 in

so i cut down a lot of the excess length and am redoing the whole back end and the cage.

ok well i got some work done. i decided to not go with a template, b/c i have already got what i need. so i just went for it and cut some peices to use on the 4 cage points on the mid part of the chassis
