KK2 Remix.....

Post by SWMS » Tue Sep 13, 2016 3:12 am

It's time that the original KK2 prototype gets a change up in powertrain. She's been running axial gear for a few years, and I think it's now time to drop in some classic Clod motor on axle action!

Here are a few pics for where she's at now.

And Clod axles going in. They fit so nice. I like using Clod gear that I am so familiar with.

Here's a front and rear view of the new SWMS dual shock mount bracket.

Thanks Andy!

I can't wait to get it all back together to take out for a spin.

I had some spare time to perform some more wrenching.

I put a little bit of some attention to the shocks. I added some rubber bumpers to limit how much travel I get at full bump. The motor to chassis side plate clearance gets a little tight and this helps prevent any possible contact.

I also took the time to mount up the dual SV3s.

She's almost done. I just need to tie up some wire routing. I may take the time to rebuild the shocks.

That axle mounting bracket is sweet! Lots of options for multiple shocks, link mount spots, and even the spot for sway bar link...never seen that one before.
Monster trucks rule :)

Thanks! I'm pleased with the way the bracket came out.

I'm going to do some more wrenching tonight. I'm dying to get it running.

I finally had some time to make something for me! Ever since I saw Avenger in Arlington, TX with a truck body, I knew I had to have one.

I used MCI decals. I chose to go with internal decals this time. I've never done it before and I think it came out great.

Not too shabby for an amateur.

Man I love the "s10" body. How heavy is the beast at full RTR weight?

I mounted the body a while back and forgot to add pictures here. Here you go!
