    Making exceed 1/16 into a 1/10 crawler

    I picked up this exceed madcrawler 1/16 for $60 shipped RTR.

    Im taking bits I had around and making it into a 1/10.

    I already had the old truck body. A $6 peice of alum is used to make chassis rails. These have the shocks mounted upright as well as providing the body mounts. I will be using velcro on the chassis rails to hold the body.

    The rear shock mount I will be changing, and I still need a way to extend the rear driveshaft.
    And the bodie's wheel wells will require some trimming. Not to much tho.

    I could have extened the front and rear links to achieve the wheelbase I wanted, but I figured why do that much extra? Just extend the rear. That will put more wieght over the front anyway.

    Its still in "mock up" stage, but it looks a heck of alot better than it did stock IMO.

    RE: Making exceed 1/16 into a 1/10 crawler

    don't look that bad for a mock up
    the tires even look sorta scale with that body
    With great speed comes greater repair bills.

    yeh, even tho its a 1/16 crawler, it has tires that are the same diameter (or extremely close) to the 1.9's on a axial scx10. That means they will look about right with nearly any 1/10 crawler truck body.

    Having the shocks verticle...instead of slanted like they were stock limits the flex to a more "scale" amount. Which works well with the body. stock it would have the tires right up against the body.

    I still wont know for certain how much it will flex till I get the driveshaft and finish the body mounts. But I almost think I wont have to trim the wheel wells at all[8D]
