    Trail Finder Chassis with Worminator Axles

    I thought it would be fun to build something with excellent ground clearance and crawls super slow. So I'm going to attempt to blend my 3 favorite components!

    - R2 Transmission - I love the size & simplicity
    - Trail Finder Chassis - for it's versatility with leaf springs and/or four link options
    - Worminator (narrow) axles with 25:1 ratio - for their high pinion and pure attractiveness!

    Thanks!

    I would love to see the wider Worminators in action.

    I'm havin' fun with the brazing gasses lately.

    I just switched to R3 1-spd trans and GCM xfer case to allow semi-full interior and knees-up driver/passenger.



    whoa ... too many accessories



    These tiny neodymium magnets really do a wonderful job holding things in place for temporary fitment.

    I like slow & technical as well. Although this truck is pretty dang slow! Time to retrofit R3 trans and GCM transfercase into the Land Cruiser and get a little higher gearing and more room for full interior seats etc.

    Worminator 6x6 axles obviously,think they are 40:1 ratio
    R2 custom transmission
    Outcry brushless system (3300 kv)
    Slow and technical works for me

    I bought a 6x6 worminator rtr last month,could not resist the sale price.
    Trying to figure out how to mount Bullhead cab and flatbed.
    Liking how it drives there is so much articulation and torque.
    So that nothing fouls I have to raise the bed on small platform but fitting the cab for ease of battery swaps is proving to be a real pain

    Here is my latest one. I'm really enjoying this build with almost all RC4WD products.

    Thank you for the kind words.

    Slow is how we do the 1:1 rock crawling here in California. For example, Rubicon trail, Fordyce Creek, Sledghammer, etc ... all with low gearing and super slow crawl.

    I added 1.9 disc brakes to my rc4wd wagon wheels and really like them. I don't think I'll ever be able to go back to non-disc brake wheels ever again!



    Assembly of the wheels, tires and disc brakes was so easy. No issues at all with the fit.



    Can't wait to get some dirt on them today and shoot another video.



    The disc brakes seemed to widen the stance which should help the steering radius a bit.
