KK-2......the beginning

Post by SWMS » Tue Jan 14, 2014 4:17 am

The KK-2 is now officially under way!

This one is going to be based on the TXT-1 and its going to be awesome (I hope [-o< ).

I have all my TXT parts pretty much gathered, and now that I am done with my second KK-1 I can now get started with modeling. Finally!

I am pretty excited about this build because I have always wanted a TXT based monster and this will be my first shafty.

I finally started doing some modeling tonight, and I began with the TXT axles.
This is the model as it stands, and I will post pics as I make progress.
As the model matures, more details will appear.

I got very sick this past week with a stomach virus. :thumbsdown: :thumbsdown:

Couldn't seem to get out of the :censored: bathroom, and I had very little energy to do anything. So my progress with this project slowed.

Today I completed the D parts of the axle and added a linkage.

I started working on the layout tonight. 12.5" wheelbase to start.

I put it side-by-side with my KK-1 to get an idea of the size of the TXT.

It's definitely a horse of a different color.
