Starting a build thread as I have some new parts coming in at the end of the week!
I'll start off on the easy side with a cosmetic change/build to the internals as it's always nice to some color and just see something nice when taking the body off!
Both Front and Rear up the chassis were taken completely apart and cleaned with dish soap and dried. after they were thoroughly dried out I primer'd all of the part first with Etching Primer! Once all the primer dried out I was able to get to painting up the internal parts. I do also plan on painting a theme for a new body for my Infraction. This part of it is going a bit slower then I want, as I'm having difficulties finding a couple more things for the theme I'd really like to go with. I do, at the least, have the new Body, Rollbar, and Rear Spoiler already, so no waiting for those when I get those last couple things.
As per the Mild Build, I have some parts shipping in and should be here by the end of the week. Mild Build, as in just mainly replacing the stock electronics like the ESC, Servo and Motor. I have already switched out the Tx/Rx system to a cheapo, generic DumboRC. Though, those really are pretty decent for the price! As those parts come in I will make sure to get some pics of the install progress. Until those parts come in, I shall talk and update ya's at a bit later date!!
Update: Got all the new parts in to install for the build! Going to be able to get them all squared away, hopefully tomorrow and barring no complications. I'll definitely update again after everything is installed!
Of course!! Always a few set backs! It's all good though! Didn't want to rush anything and half arse the build!
These are just some update pics on the build itself.
I knew I would probably run into a couple issues of fitting the pieces. I was actually able to fit a MM2 ESC in the original place allocated! I'll have to trim up the battery holders a bit on just that side, but still able to balance battery weight!!
Should be able to finish up the battery tray mod tonight and get the servo set and finished. Then just waiting on some Tekno mod1 Pinions gears, should be here today or tomorrow!! I'm really curious how this new motor will perform!!
Another update on the build.
Run into one thing and find another! Being held up a bit on the battery trays parts. Having to dremel them to fit, as I like doing things like this with the hobby.
Living where I do, the power tool is being to loud so I wasn't able to finish the other side, though I was able to get the one side fitting very nicely.
The Pinion gears came in the mail today as well, so I can get that installed on the motor, threadlocked and set. Now the next time I update this build, it should be finished and ready to be tested this Saturday...
Yay!! Finally finished! Modding up one of the battery trays held me a bit, so I can fit the MM2 esc in the original esc spot. Looks surprisingly good, I think. New 25kg servo installed and lined up. The Ezrun 4274 2200kv motor installed and meshed up, motor fans back on as well.
Big shout out to @Peeeenuuutt with his knowledge and help, finding me the MM2 esc at a great price!! Thank you again!
Absolutely fun build, looking into the next setup already!!
