hey azzman I was wondering is it possible to mount the tanks on the sides almost like the e-savages battery houses and are you placing the tanks for equal weight transfer?
I think the pipe would get in the way and they would be a pain in the butt to fill. I placed them where I did to make the whole truck easier to work on IMO.

Azzman I just noticed you have a phantom buggy pipe on your savage. I bought the same thing at first took it to work and had them cut the tip with the threaded hole in it off and reweld it for me so I could use it like I wanted to. Then I finally got my phantom savage pipe in the mail its soo much nicer the nipple is at a 90 degree towards the back makes it nice for stock setup. Before I had to rout the return line through the tvp and it was a pain to get at.
Yea, I just re-bent my wire to make it work.

Ok, I am sketching out the layout of the TVP I am going to fab up. I have decided to go with a 15mm motor/trans drop. I have planned a 10mm extension on the front. Now, that means I can use a rear dogbone in the front, right? I am going to use .125" thick, 6061 aluminum alloy for them. What kind of metal did you use? Am I even in the ballpark when it comes to the design of this? Is there anything else you could tell me about that might help me or prevent a problem that I might run into? Thanks...

I stretched mine a total of 11 or 12mm, the rear dogbone is used in the front yes, but it is only 6mm longer, to et the extra 4mm I stretched the back a little more AND the front a little more than 6mm, but you will have to use o-rings or small pieces of fuel tubeing in the hubs to centre the bone.

As for dropping it 15mm that may be pushing it a little, I got 10mm comfortably and personally wouldnt want to file any more of the crossbraces (see pic previous page).

The material I used was some ****ty grade ali I scrounged from the sheetmetal workers down the road, its 3mm thick...

Well thanks for the warning on the engine brace. Ill have to think of a solution to that problem. I was thinking of 15mm because, well as we all know, the lower, the better... right? I am in the design stage and will be getting some .062 thick steel sheet metal for a first fab. That way, I can mock up the engine and trans and dogbones and see what I need to change. I am hoping to have this all mocked up by the the third week in May. Ill keep thinking of ways to make them even better then ever.
