She is cleaned up for now so I can work on her. But you better believe she is no shelf queen. Already have a new set of copperheads for when she is done.
Who am I kidding these projects are never done. Motor combo next. I am holding out for a castle.

The fronts don't ballon. Not reverse lol. I like to slide the ass end around through the gravel pit. Gives it more of a posi feeling in the rear end... the million weight center kills the ballooning enough.

Nice, but you have your diff oils reversed, unless you like ballooning front tires😂
With 1m in the center I can confidently say it’ll be hard for those front wheels to ballon lol... I like running a similar setup to him actually.

For the power the kraton or any 6s makes. Some times to turn sharper you need that back end to step out a little on bigger vehicle. If it was a buggy on the other hand yes you want them to be more front wheel drive as they are able to to have more lock to lock steering control

Yeah only time they ever balloon is over 40ish mph even doing wheelies they wont balloon.

To be honest I was at first as well. Now that I did it once it's a piece of cake. If you need assistance don't be afraid to ask. The setup while installing it makes it easier to move over I mounted it to the center brace so I can just plug it in and remove it easily

I do too 1M center 60K front, 30k rear (used to be 100k front 60k rear, but I like more steering) and my fronts can still balloon. Although the 4985 hooked to my Max6 can still give any diff a workout🤔🤣

Everything that has come off so far.... this is taking a while lol. I still have to rebuild the diffs , m2c Ackerman, m2c shock caps and rebuild, rpm arms I am going to keep off when they get here. I am worried about winter breaking them plus I have 3 stock set to use up. Need to run to hobby store tomorrow for wire to lengthen the motor to esc connections. I am putting a jumper in so I can remove motor like stock blx system. She is getting there. I am also going to pick up another bearing set to replace everything while I have it open tomorrow.
This is where she stands currently.

She is 95% done. All shocks and diffs are rebuilt. All the wiring is done. I did however have to slot a couple stuck screws. And a shock tower stand off literally snapped in half like butter so need a new one. Looks like I am going to the lhs tomorrow for last couple things... I hope lol. She has been down over a week now waiting on parts and what nots... the other toys are just not the same . You can only speed run so many times before you get bored lol... well this is where she stands. She isn't much but she is me. And no one else has one like her lol.

She went on her maiden voyage today. Unfortunately I think my reciver got pinched or something along those lines. She only has about a 30 ft range. I know it's the reciver because the headlights go out at same time. It isn't the radio because I was just using it on speed runs and was working flawlessly. Look like I have more stuff to buy.. she might be done by spring. 😥
Oh btw a 23 tooth pinion makes this max 6 combo warm fast fyi. Going back to the 20t to see how she does
