I had the same thing in mind! I envision it bending forward above the shocks and doubling as the front body mount that seems to be causing a lot of people trouble. I am just finishing up a carbon rear bumper/wheelie bar (tbr inspired) and can't decide whether to do a front bumper or the shock brace / body mount next. Maybe something will break and give me some direction.To do list this day.
Fabricate front carbon shocktower in 2.5mm
Fabricate carbon side chassoe plates 2.0mm
Adjust front arm to fit ARRMA bulkhead ( 0.5mm sanding requires
Testmount the car
So....finaly after many houers the car is done. Long story short...i had some FYRY sidechassis laying in the workshop, so messured up and started to cut..sand and dremel. Got a DESC210 So i took the front and rear suspension inc shocks ( tjat are state of the art)...just a little sanding on front arms and a direct fit...had to make a new CF tower..the rear end was abolt on..just some arm/axle spacer..habe not adjusted any oil or so..will do thtat this week. Motor is a super sheap SST 3000rpm 2pole with 3s LiPo.and a Hobbywing 80AWP..and a Savöx LP...Tires are Truck 2.2 Badlands on Nitrorustler rims..the hardest thing on this build was the hex...Crapy DURANGO 14mm..had to cut..with a carpetlnife to get them exakt 12mm..working real good.
O...M..x...G..works like a sharm, good rear end grip, lots of steeeing..even on power..the long suspensionarms and shocks..are...a master combo on this chassi..it just feels like a light 1/8 scale car..just soaks up the bumps..
Next is to mod stock diff to take 4 planetgears inst of 2..
