Promodified 2wd Puller

Post by Budhatrain » Thu Nov 21, 2013 6:46 pm

A lot of the events I go to, pulling is going on in the other part of the room. I been wanting to build one of these for sometime. I picked up the chassis from Brad at TTR. Added about 1 lbs of steel under the main tray in-between some rails-- castle sidewinder and 5700kv motor, sweet aluminum rims from traxxas. I am weighing in the high 8's right now and need to get alot closer to 10lbs. I will be sliding about 1lbs of lead under the rear axle (similar to what I did with the steel) .

So here is my progress so far, I need to look closer at the rule book- says I can run 3s for nrctpa, but I also need to look at overall length and wheelbase ect... I am pretty confident I fall in line but I will need to make sure :) Sent the body out for paint, hopefully I will get it sometime in December. Shaving tires is on the queue UGH.

Thanks for looking...

That looks super nice Mike! I like that chassis layout a lot! Some things that I learned with my set-up and might help you are to have enough weight that is movable on your chassis as slight changes do effect how it will perform. I think you have that with the bar weights both up front and just in front of the rear wheels. You just want to be able to adjust weight on the fly in-between your three runs. You will also want to have some spare gears as the one on the rear axle takes a beating.

I see you are going brushless too! That is a big plus over brushed. I found out the hard way. I am running a Castle system in mine as well now. I just need to get my bars for the removable weights just in front of the rear tires like you have. I have a meet this Sunday so I will let you know how I do. :)

thanks jeff... yeah, I need add more weight so that I can take some off of the rear bar so that I can adjust front to rear if needed. I have room up front but as you can see my rear bar is maxed out. I am going to clear up about 4-6 weights per side. I just need to go and purchase some of the lead from the hobby shop and stick more in between the rails over and around the rear axle plates.

Hey, if you want a cheap route for weights, go to a store that installs tires and see if they have a bin of the used tire weights. You can melt them down and repurpose them to make weights. You can make a mold out of wood and insert a bolt to attach to your rig or leave a hole in it to attach as well. Just an idea to throw at you. Those stick on weights can get expensive.

BTW, is your ESC motor combo a 4 pole motor? I was told those are the best for pullers as they have a ton of low end torque.

Its coming together very nice.
The rear gear is a 96T.
The setup is for the NR/CTPA 10# dirt class so it will be geared and ballanced different than the carpet 7# they run up in MN.
