PostSubject: My new TXT based rig   Tue 18 Sep 2007, 22:52

Bought it for $150 ($170 shipped) on EBAY. Had Integy piggyback shocks (which I am selling).

Here is what I have in it other than what was included with it:
Steering servo ($20)
GD600 ($13)
35turn motor ($20)
Novak XRS ESC ($40?)
Futaba AM radio

I had the electronics from my other truck, which came with my first TLT when I got it a good while ago. I don't NEED more than one truck, so when I upgrade, I sell the one I had before. A friend now has my last TXT crawler, he helped me build a cage (and will help build another cage) to pay for the parts he used off it.

I still need to add some weight on the tires, and they need some better foams, the moron I got it from basically cut most of the foam out... There are other things I will do as well, not qute sure yet, but it seems it is a never ending process, guess thats why I like it so much Smile

Here are the pics:

hey

I will be very interested to see how those tires perform.

I have the previous version and like them for climbing up hill but they are a little to hard.

These are pretty soft, but need a little stiffer foams, and it wouldn't hurt to narrow them, but there is no *good* way to narrow them and keep them looking similar to what they do now.
