Hey guys, starting this thread to show my updates on the Kraton (chassis snappy) and it's rebuild after my...accident. New JBI chassis, new 4985 Hobbywing and Max6 combo, Pratical Proto mount and Centre dif mounts, new 30kg servo, hot racing front gearbox and cover and servo saver, new bulkheads and many aluminium upgrades, new radio setup, shock wraps and a partidge in a pear tree are on their way in the mail lol. I already have a fully integy aluminium setup including arms towers wing mount and chassis braces(yes I know aluminium arms break things picture attached an yes i know your opinions on Intejunk). I am eventually getting fast eddy bearings and I will be asking a friend on this site for advice on shims for the diffs. I have looked into re anodizing my shocks blue but for now they will just be wrapped. I will be getting a replacement set of stock boots for her and some new belted street tires from proline. I also will be getting the long bed c-10 body for her to make her look unique and pretty. My eventual plan is to get the rest of the remaining stock parts and use all the stock parts I take off and make a whole second car, so I will have my crazy beast with all aftermarket gear and a second stock car from all the parts I took off the first. If you guys have suggestions on any other parts I should get lmk, I will say though no I will not change my mind on the parts I have got or will be getting I'm pretty happy with my choices but I'm open to ideas for stock things to replace that I haven't thought of. Oh and I got new 200k and 500k dif glue...I mean oil lol for the centre dif and I'm getting some new 20k and 50k oil for the front and rear, and the shocks have been changed to 90 in front and 80 in rear for oil ( I wanted the front a little thicker as it likes to nose dive while hard braking). Eventually when I can afford it I will be getting the home powder coating unit I showed you guy in my other post to do my chassis blue and purple.

JBI chassis and all the aluminium parts done, the new motor came in and the mount from Practical Proto is on the way. Of course the stock servo decided to pooch out on me on the test drive, probably got mangled in the tree crash. The new hot racing gearbox and steering saver is in the car now as well. Got me a dust cover too, it kinda works but also kind of not. Can't wait to order some street shoes and the new c10 body, Im getting the white wing too as my stock one is kind of destroyed #wheeliemachine. Some fast Eddy bearings and I'll be set.

If it ain't broke, you're doing it wrong.

Looking good sir.

I kind of want to do a build with nothing but Hot Racing, Gpm and Integy parts all de anodized and mirror polished would look so pretty.

Your machine is pretty heavy, any issues? I'd be really interested
Well it's not built for going to the moon. It's more of a street and feild runner.And yes she's thicc! She weighs more than stock that's for sure. But when she runs it's fast as heck. I haven't tried my new motor yet. I'm still waiting on canada post for my mount from Bob at Pratical Proto and my new servo. The C-10 long body is in ontario and the new shoes for her(belted street tires). Fast eddy bearings should be here soon. I bought new front cvd axles and put the stock on the back, it was working good until my servo chewed itself up(not related). The new gpm drive cups are pretty beefy compared to stock so I'm ordering another set and the bevel gears they offer. I won't buy another hot racing gearbox as you have to buy the top and sway bar mount seperate so I'm ordering the gpm box for the rear as it comes with everything for the same price as just the box from hot racing. Shock wraps are nice and were easy to put on. she's a work in progress, like any girl you spend money to keep her happy lol.

Well I kinda wanted to wait till it was painted to post but I think it looks to sick not to post. The practical proto mount is in, the 4985 and max 6 is in permanently and the new c10 body is fitted and I'm so happy how it looks. Now to pick colours and paint her. Thanks to my older brother and my LHS I was able to get myself a new servo so I can run it while the big servo comes in the mail. Now it just needs the gearbox top, the bearings, new bevel gears, rear gear box from gpm and a new white wing to replace the stock black. This thing is turning out exactly how I imagined it. Btw if anyone knows a fan and mount for the 4985 motor lmk I want to get one.
Oh and the Proline HP belted street tires are fitted and looking mint! They add quite a bit of width to it from the stock tires, so hopefully I'll have more stability. Srry for the random ketchup bottle and nasty looking couch in the pics, just had dinner and the couch is a used pos I got for free burn holes included(single life lol).

New paint update. It's not perfect by any means the damn paint bleed through everywhere(won't be using that tape again) but it looks way better than stock and I'm happy with it. I have Kydex on the way to mount to the sides of my chassis to cover the gap on the body and protecting the battery/guts again. And the new white wing is on its way. Powder coat the chassis purple and the T2T brace blue and this thing will finally look right (to me anyways).

Okay I gave in to the peer pressure slash my wallet has butterflys in it now, but aluminium arms are coming out and rpm arms are going in. Blue RPM arms on the way, NTF fan setup for motor and max 6 on the way, bearings arrived and will be going in as soon as my new GPM order comes in and the new shims come. GPM order includes, drive cups all around, rear cvds, rear t2t brace mount, new bevels and pinions, new dif gears all around, new dif cases all around. Robinson racing pinions coming 22t and 25t, TEKJO gaskets all around, Mugen Seiki dif pins, and a bunch more. And keep an eye out for my Noto build log when she comes. M2C towers and braces to start her off on her bashing adventures.

Sorry for no updates lately, she's still all apart and lonely on the bench. I have a bunch of parts that showed up including my NTF fans, but I'm still waiting on a bunch more to finish her. The noto has been getting alot of action lately but it also will be benched soon too, I got a big list of stuff for it on the way too. Come on parcel services I need my baby back.

Wow i am so impressed with your build...
Especially that C10 ten body.. One of my favorite trucks...
So what size battery can you run with that max6...

Oh and the Proline HP belted street tires are fitted and looking mint! They add quite a bit of width to it from the stock tires, so hopefully I'll have more stability. Srry for the random ketchup bottle and nasty looking couch in the pics, just had dinner and the couch is a used pos I got for free burn holes included(single life lol).

I think the 6 takes an 8s (don't quote me) but my 4985 only takes a 6s which is plenty for me. Thanks for the compliments. She is a work in progress. I like the C10 body too. I hope that now horizon owns proline they keep making them. I have lots more to go on her. I have a noto too I might stat a thread for her too, she has rpm arms, m2c towers and standoffs, rpm wing mount, fast eddy bearings and more and is getting a big list done too. Both will soon have cameras and fpv set up for them and both are getting some sick headlights setup too. I might order another chassis for my noto and build an Outcast with its stock chassis and all the stock parts I have pulled off both rigs. I have enough radios etc kicking around to do it.
NTF fans. So happy with how they look. They are friggin loud too and blow a ton of air.
