Very detailed building thread...
I have to follow this... ;)

I try to use some ideas for my Limitless!
At the Kraton the gaps and the play in the steering and the rear is okay, but not for a onroad racer :cool:

A few updates after the weekend after killing some tyres..🀣 ( notice my Ti screws are holding out well and sparking nicely at night πŸ˜‰ )

IMG_3633 2.jpeg

So in went the new motor, I decided to put my Max8 in also as it has better settings and more BRAKES..!!
I'm no longer using it in the Kraton ( it performed flawlessly matched with a 4092 1650kv but other plans ensued 🀣)

IMG_3540 2.jpgIMG_3542.jpg

I was surprised to find out that the esc tray in the Infraction is actually drilled from factory to fit a Max8 or Max6 in the pic you can see my template I used in the past, all you need is some M3x8mm bolts.

IMG_3655.jpg

I stumbled onto these intakes and found out they are a direct fit on a Max8 so I had to fit one, bonus it's Arrma red..πŸ‘πŸΌ
Also remounted the cap pack with better wire and mounted it on the diff case.

IMG_3661.jpgIMG_3658.jpgIMG_3663.jpg

I had to extend the motor wires, luckily I had some spare 10awg wire from another esc to hand. Joined it with 6.5mm bullets and heat shrunk it together so it doesn't pull apart..πŸ‘πŸΌ ( great trick for stopping motor plugs unplugging )

Turned the batteries around as the Max8 wires were too short..😩 I cut some small hard foam blocks from some left over packing to sit in front of batteries to protect the ends but they're not in the pic.

IMG_3666.jpeg

It's very colorful in there now..🀣🀣

IMG_3673.jpg

Above you can see I fitted a PowerHd LW20mg servo that was in my Kraton its only 6v but I've been happily running it on 7.4v for ages and it works well, small problem now is it doesn't centre properly, so I put the original Arrma one back in.. (for now πŸ˜‰)

The finished truck complete with GRP S5 slicks all ready to test run for the weekend, it's running 21T pinion at the moment which I believe will give the same speed as stock but with more torque..!! and less heat..πŸ‘πŸΌ

Lets see how we go..!!

I think my next job will be full strip down/clean and fit the ABEC5 bearings I've had for a while now..πŸ€ͺ that I've been putting off fitting because its such a pain in the.....🀣

Nice work Brian! The work and detail are amazing. About the intake. Knowing what we do about the amount of debris that the Infraction spits up into the body, is a bowl over the fan a good idea? Looks like it would catch and clog the fan if not checked repeatedly during each run. Looks wild, but it's just one of those things that popped in my head when I saw it.

Yeah I know I was thinking the same thing, but luckily I have some of that mesh leftover from the back window so I'll make a cover of sorts..πŸ‘πŸΌ but it looks better without for photo purposes πŸ˜‰

Haven’t resorted to red yet I just make sure I fully clean the treads and copious amounts of blue πŸ‘πŸΌ



Brian really love how this is coming on, makes me want one but I must concentrate on my two current builds haha

Like me removing the slop etc is a high priority, how are you finding the front end with just the new links?

Short answer, it's soooooo much better than stock..πŸ‘πŸΌ

The Arrma rod ends aren't bad and the redesign makes them very good at not popping off, but they just have too much play..😩 Fine for offroading etc but πŸ’©πŸ’© for on road..🀣🀣

I’ve picked up a full set of EB48 and MBX7 links so have a few to play around with.

Tekno ones do look a little more beefy then the Mugen plus the Tekno hollow balls are alloy vs the coated Mugen one.

I’ve got an Alza servo mount, HR steering link plus bearings so hopefully with a few shims the front should be sorted 🀞🏼

Are you running stock camber?
