Your jugg looks killer and liking the clod tires on it. How do you like the sport tuned motors? Now I need to jump on my 2 jugg's and get them done.
if you can't dodge it then ram it

Thanks buddy. Sport tuned motors are great with stock jugg 2 drivetrain a good speed increase for minimal outlay $$$. You will need to upgrade the esc though the standard Tamiya twin motor esc does not handle twin sport tuned motors well gets real jittery once the battery pack starts to run down.

Replaced blue anodized Tamiya shocks with TXT-2 black plastic shocks with silver springs off the blue shocks as TXT-2 black springs are way to soft. Shame would have looked better with black springs.

Also never occurred to me before to put CPE ZF planetarys on Grim Reaper they suit Jugg wheels well.

So what do you guys think was it worth the effort? Will this truck ever be finished :roll: .

Lack of four wheel steer on this truck is annoying me...

I don't think the lack of 4WS hurts at all with this truck, and the rear lock-out looks cool.
What I think.... is that the chassis needs something, as it seems a bit plain.
Maybe paint it, or add sponsor stickers?

Andy you are right I regret not painting or powder coating the chassis black its a lot of hassle to take it all apart again but we will see...

Hi Alex, can you say why you cancelled the eBay auction? Just wondering as I was bidding on the car.

Thanks

Hi buddy I cancelled the auction as bidding wasn't going that well I made a mistake taking it off I should have left it on.

However Grim Reaper is still for sale :) just not by auction to much for my nerves :lol:

Thanks Mark :) Grim Reaper has gone to a good home which makes it a bit easier. Have always sold my trucks to fund other truck builds not a huge collector to be honest its the building part I find exciting.

Plus gives me motivation to build more trucks... :popcorn:

Doing my usual weekly Juggernaut/ TXT-1 ebay search I spotted something amusing Grim Reaper is now on its fourth owner (I think) and he wants 374 dollars for it.

But here is the catch... he has TRASHED the body =D> =D> =D> :rofl:

Believe it or not I am not for or against "shelfers" it is just the way my builds have gone in the recent years I spend a lot of money and time and cant bring myself to run them hard.

But stick a lexan on it why trash a hard body with unique one off paintjob! Good luck bud good luck. I think the seller is a member on tamiyaclub I might start a "to trash or not to trash" thread on tamiyaclub forums :popcorn:

Couldn't resist adding some of the photos off ebay notice the two sets of incorrectly drilled mount holes on the hood and scoured measurement line. Cool!
