Return of the Tamiya Super Juggernaut

Post by MelvinsArmy » Tue Jan 09, 2007 4:36 am

Well, a few years ago I sold my badass Juggernaut 2. Then, about a year and a half ago I bought another because I missed the first one so much. To be honest, I'm not even sure why I sold it. Well, I've finally finished this one. It's very similar to the first.

First, it's got a GPM Juggernaut chassis. I made the batter tray, electronics tray and body mount/reciever tray out of carbon fiber plates. The front steering is an X-treme behind the axle servo mount, and the rear lockout I made out of carbon fiber plate and spare links. A Hitec HS-5625MG steers the truck. The wheels are RC4WD beadlocks, which are have a similar pattern to the stock wheels, which I'm very happy about. The wheels are offset too, so this truck didn't need wideners. The links were made by Devestator2000. The motors are Speed Gems Amber 17x2's and the ESC is a Super Rooster.

And, all those nice shiney aluminum and cf parts are topped off in a stock Jugg body painted my favorite color, Krylon flat black. This truck was meant to be driven. I put a chrome Don "Snake" Prudhomme logo sticker on the passenger side door. My original Jugg had some white Snake logos on the doors. I'm undecided if I'll leave it on, and put the other on, or if I should just go with a plain flat black body.

looks real good and nothing beats that good ol dept store Krylon :lol: IMHO nothing can beat them See's wheels the original rolled with but those are still ok enough I guess. I'm also not a big fan of the wide ride width of either offset wheels or wheel wideners but all n all nice to see it back. :wink:

Thanks guys. :D

Breaker, the stock width is just to narrow on runner trucks for me. They tip over too often, then I've got to break out the Krylon even more than usual. :lol:

Hansolo, wait till you see the JPS/Tremor Clod when it's finished. That I think will be the best truck I'll ever be able to do. Just got to get a body and a few small details for it and it's done. 8)
