Nice work on your sled do you find it to be front heavy or tipsy?
Mine I am putting the fuel tank under the seat and I have also put the motor lower to help the weight might have to put batteries and receiver in under the seat also, want to help even out the weight.
Nice vid is that full speed ? what gear ratio you running ?
Thanks the new motor mount has 9 bolts that hold it in place I don't think is going to move any time soon LOL
I use the gears because they are more readily available the belts I have to order through work and can take 2 weeks to get.
But I used belts right from the start like them better more realistic
I have a pic just for you, now i drill out the plastic drive wheels and also drill 3 holes to bolt them to the new hub.
All the hubs have 3 set-screws to lock them to the drive-shaft I don't want anything to move cause you have to take everything apart to get at them
if you look in this post you can see what I mean.
Now I use snap rings to keep the drive-shaft from moving side to side and to also hold the bearings in place, i use flanged bearings on the inside of the tunnel.
I also use ground harden drill rod this way I know it is bang on for 1/4 I don't want any play in the hub after I drill it out.
Because it will put things off balance and cause it to vibrate, i want it to run as smooth as possible.
Now in the pic i show one shaft already started then how all the parts go hope this helps you out.
Now for 2 more pics first one is to show just how many parts are needed to build my sled
some have already been done, didn't think to grab a pic before i started machining them.
there is a few more parts but need to go get some more aluminum ran out.
Now there are a lot of bolts, nuts, washers, servo saver, shocks and bearings ect that go along with all this.
I think some people don't realize just what it takes and how many parts there are LOL
Also the next pic show ride height adjustment it go's from 3 inch to 4 inch now and you get a sneak peek of one of my new suspension set-ups.
