mikef350's jugg2 project (going to be a slow one)

Post by mikef350 » Sat Sep 20, 2014 6:57 pm

Hi all

Just traded the last of my tamiya tourng cars for this truck,been wanting one for a long time so i offered my cars proberly sold my self short but hey i wanted it :)

the tuck is now 80% striped ready for a good grease down and chiatsu and i have ordered a new set bearings from hong kong.

I not 100% sure on where i want to go with this but i have followed gravetxt1's grim reaper over on TC and i pretty much want to do what he did,as it was in my opinion not over the top,well built and kept the basic style of the jugg while giving it what it needed.I will be using tamiya torque tuned motors with steel pinions and i think i want to keep with the stock steering set up but buy the alloy servo saver parts just to make it as good as it can be.

I believe this is the one you are referring too? Juggs are a nice base truck to mold to your own liking. glade you made it over here. I'm sure you will find more ideas on what to do with it as you proceed. :wink:

You will have to email them for pricing and availability. It looks like they accept paypal now as well. Try ebay as well.

been watching monster jam on youtube this morn and its made me rethnk my plans.

I am thinking a new era tube chassis as a base.has any one built one of them up with the drive shaft driveline?

EDIT! kingclod has done one with wraith bits.

The same but Juggernaut has 5mm outputs and the TXT has 6mm. Same with the axles.

Well i would like to gave gravetxt1 a BIG MASSIVE THANKS! for the alloy suspension links,i was not expecting them at all he said he was sending me some rod ends and links and i was a happy chappy when i seen that they was alloy and they was for free you sir are a legend =D> =D> :) :)

Ive been a bit unsure what monster truck direction i was going to go in (was going to sell the jugg and get a clod) but for now i think i will fit the bearings when they arrive,fit the tamiya alloy steering links when they arrive and just run here for a bit standard.oh and i may buy some wheel wideners

heres some pics of the links
