Its getting closer to being finished! I got my tires in today mocked up on some Losi 2.2 crawler wheels. I am just floored by the ground clearance under the axles with these mounted up. Not sure if I want to stick with these. I have some other wheels on the way. :mrgreen:

Your build is coming out awesome! The mud bashers really set it off.
I think the clod chassis looks great with those axles and Jugg body. Very cool. 8)

Thanks bud! I'm liking how this is turning out as well. The hard part for me is deciding on wheels. :?

That's just bizarre, but it looks great, kind of like a mud-bogging truck. Cool idea, waiting for vids!
Yeah, I'm the guy you saw hammering in screws with a pipe wrench, why do you ask?

So, I purchased some 2.2 Axial Trail Ready HD wheels for this build off of EBay. When they showed up in the mail, I got one set that had hex mount and the other pair was pin mount. UGH!

After mounting them up, the smaller hex mount is two narrow for the front with the steering linkage. I need an in-between 6 hole mount for these to fit properly and not be so wide. I really want them tires tucked under the body as much as possible.

Anyways, I found that Vanquish has different offset mounts that fit these wheels, but they are expensive and not sure which one to get just to find out I went too wide or narrow.

I found a guy on RCCrawler that makes adjustable ones for about half the cost and include hardware. Issue here is I cant find them for sale and the guy has not responded to my pm for three days now. UGH! Stuck again!!!

I will wait it out and see if he messages me, due to Christmas only two days away. :( :(

I played around with the links for the steering and discovered their was three holes to adjust the steering on the steering arms. I was able to move the links to the center holes and mount the smaller hubs with no issues.

Truck now is drivable and works great!

Man, with that kind of ground clearance I bet it would be great as a snow-runner. :wink:
