geeesss ezzz up on the zip tie hahahaha its only 90% done still waiting for parts . and the wheels are 2.8 front 2.2 back but because of the profile diffrance they are just about the same DIA so im sweet .

Kodiac400: its a axial .28 spec 1s , i nearlly got the RR but i had other stuff to spend the extra $30 on .

Megabash: man you so should bang on the sh.28 i cant belive how eazy the bb fitted in , you basicly just need new engine mounts and the way i did it , i still use the same slots in the stock chassi plate so you still have ajustment in and out .

ahhhhhh ok guys got some news on the BB
good and bad lol , the good news is got it running today ended up putting the pullstart back on cos i really wanted to run it . the pullstart fits with a lil filing of the plastic around the engine . and OH MY GOD the power it has at just 1/4 throttle WHOA , any thing other than road like pavers or tiles and it just wheel spins and spins out like a 2wd st and on road it goes to pick the wheels up . its so much louder than i thought it would be anyways the bad news is after only a tank and a half of run in , i have buzzed the main gear away and broken a front drive shalft . the main gear was my fault because i sort of didnt get the right mesh i would have liked but ay it was my first go im still learning so round two will be much better with a few lil mods and maybe just maybe il finish running in the engine hahahhahahahahahahaha lol but this thing is a animal

uhoo just buy the drive shafts for the mt2 18ss and all the cups for the inputs on the diffs and the outputs on the transmission. The rear dog bone is a direct drop in but you have to shorten the front one for that check out the posts I made on this page its a very strong and easy setup but do not use the solder weld them with a mig I have done both and the solder eventually lets go but I have never had a problem with the welder. The mt2 drive cups and dog bones are way stronger then the redcat ones its a really nice upgrade.
