1Bads kk2 (freestyle)

Post by Justinswraps » Fri Jan 20, 2017 12:52 am

I've been weighing my options over the last couple weeks on what I really don't need to build. I decided upon a kk2 chassis but was hung up on drivetrain for a good while. I jumped back between axial drive line and freestyle drive line. So I finally comited to freestyle stuff, went to their site and placed the stuff in my cart. Got distracted from price shock and went to eBay to price internals and bearings. Go back to freestyles site and check out before I changed my mind again, just when I thought I was good I get a message stating they were going to refund me because they just ran out of axles. :( So take my refund and pretty bummed, I then get a message from a friend telling me he knows where a set of ready to go axles are for sale brand new. I jump on it and bought them from the guy, went back to the freestyle site to buy a transmission, only to find they are sold out too! I message Josh at freestyle, he tells me he pulled the last one from the site for me! Wooohooo!

I'm super stoked to build this thing. I'll be the first to admit I said I would never buy this stuff because of the price. But I did, I'm hoping I change my prospective real fast once I get everything.

Bad news is I'm going to be letting the smt10 go. I feel it's the easiest one to let go because I plan to do a little racing next season. While the other 3 trucks I have are racers it would be foolish to sell one if I plan to race.

So here's to probably what's going to be my biggest build to date and hopefully the baddest! :beer: :popcorn:

I knew you couldn't resist after watching my KK2 build!!! Haha, just kidding. :lol:

I almost jumped on the Freestyle axles as they were what I originally wanted to use. But I already had some AR60 bits on hand so I just went that route. Keep us posted on how you like them and help me spend some of my money... :P

:lol: I'll admit, yours did have a hand in it! I received them today, I have eaten my words in the past about these axles not being worth the money. After actually having a set in hand take it all back! They are not nearly as heavy as I thought they would be and probably more stout than the axles on my 1:1 Dodge :lol: So now I have another set coming :mrgreen:

Then I got serious. The scale shocks weren't giving me the look and performance I wanted.
