Default The Baddest Axial bomber on the Planet

The things that stand out in this picture are the custom axle that I installed aluminum beef tubes and CVD's. Also check out the servo that is frame mounted. The tires are 2.2 JConcepts Ruptures that I cut and glued to 1/8 narrowed wheels from Proline.

The things that stand out in this picture is the rear axle that uses Yeti XL parts in a custom Kyosho Fo-xx axles the lockouts are Yeti XL and also the rear Yeti XL shafts that are cut to fit this build. The Diff uses a HPI Savage spool. The drive shaft is a Losi LST piece. The shocks on all 4 corners are 1/8 large bore shocks and the custom 6.75'' tall tires started as Associated Monster GT.

The hart of the build is the Summit powered transmission that is fitted to a Carbon chassis plate that I screwed to the plastic cage. I also glued it so that the screws don't get stressed out. This made the chassis very stiff. I also did it to the front so that the servo would not flex the chassis. I installed the L.E.M Dog Carrier in the transmission so that it would keep the gears from walking inside.

I use the transmission backwards to get the weight forward and also this buggy uses a 4074 2200kv motor that runs through a 150 amp esc and a 4s SMC Lipo 70-140c (Note) this picture shows the old motor.
