  • Stubs Bully!!

    I have been running an XR for a while now but recently got my Bully back. Shortly after that i got sponsored my RC4WD and them the motor in my XR crapped out. So i have been driving the Bully again and i have to say i have missed it. It is so consistent and indestructible. So thought i would but my build thread up in here. I am running the light weight axles with heavy tubes in front. I like it like this because i only have to run 3oz in the front wheels.

    It will have 2 fxr's soon but for now....

    1 fxr
    punk dig
    Hitec 7950
    integy 45t's
    CKRC Droid chassis
    SCX10 plastic schocks
    1" SLW's 750 front/600's rear
    --5lb 5oz RTR--




    The front axle is clocked. Not sure how much, i just eyeballed the holes with a hand drill I ground out the "C" and knuckle to get as much cleance as possible. I am very close to the same as 300's.





    I've done a little work to the rear axle! Tubes are turned down to 11.5 mm, cases are ground and the tops are cut off. The shock mount is cut off the link mount and a new hole was drilled as close to the link hole as would clear. The upper link mount was cut as short as i could get it also.

      Looking good, stubs!

      I recently modified a set ov v6 front driveshafts in my minilathe and managed to get 51 degrees of steering out of them. Might be a mod worth considering as steering throw is the area were the Bully is lacking.

          Thanks! The tires are just Sedona's with shaved sidewalls. I like all my tires with shaved side walls. I shave my Rover's, sedona's, and BC's.

            I traded my XR for a super Bully because the Bully just works better for me.

            So now the Bully has 2 fxr's, and 45t brood motors. I am also running 0.9" D_Lux wheels.

            The FXR's decased and the soldier posts removed.



            Extra material dremeled off the case. There is 6mm of aluminum there, now there is less then 3mm

                    Thanks! I am excited to take it to ECC. The last big comp I took it to was shamrock showdown 2011 and got 5th with it. The best I ever did with the XR was 11th at nats.

                            I followed this build and case mods on Rccrawler and did the mods to good effect.

                            Will post pics in MR Creepy thread this weekend.
