Re: Soze's GMADE GOM GR01 Build

Finally installed the last 2 upgrade parts that I have on hand. (Although I'll probably upgrade some more parts as they are released in the future). First was the GMADE Aluminum Skid Plate (available on eBay) to give the bottom a little more protection and give the bottom sides an angled flat surfac...

Re: Soze's GMADE GOM GR01 Build

Finally decided on a driver for my GOM.

Re: Soze's GMADE GOM GR01 Build

It's starting to get to the finish line. Minor decals added. I really love the way this truck looks. By no means complete yet, as I still have some parts to put on..... but I will be running it soon. https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4567/26962971679_5fd9ffc52d_b.jpg https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4515...

Some work under the hood. Picture of the Mamba X just fitting into the spot above the receiver box. https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4519/38493037662_141a7343a5_b.jpg https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4543/26748994559_3fcaa9e820_b.jpg So as mentioned the receiver box is quite small.

Re: Soze's GMADE GOM GR01 Build

Steps 75-86: Cage/Body/Cockpit I'll add pictures of the body panels later, but was playing around with the cage to see what woudl be involved in getting to certain areas of the truck during maintenance. So you can take the cage off as a whole piece. There's gotta be a way we can make this work by a...

Re: Soze's GMADE GOM GR01 Build

Steps 69-74: Steering & Panhard Links/Rods So, I did run into a snag here. The panhard axle mount that the panhard rod attaches to on the axle uses a countersunk screw to secure it into place. The "eye" of that mount for that countersunk screw isn't very sturdy. Well... like someone from another fo...

Re: Soze's GMADE GOM GR01 Build

Steps 61-68: Shocks I really need to get some more specific tools to do some of these build steps like the shocks. I'm sure I can do a much better job, but for now I'll keep winging it and improvising with the tools I have. https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4531/26524215859_847661f2aa_b.jpg Applying s...

Re: Soze's GMADE GOM GR01 Build

Step 47: Steering Servo I skipped this step earlier, because I'm using the Savox SC-1283SG Servo . The kit comes with pre-molded servo spacers that encase the servo ears. They are pre-molded to fit most servos that use thinner plastic servo ears. The Savox 1283 is metal cased, and has thicker servo...
