      I like it. The image looks sooo real WOW! Upper links will be pretty short. Whats the wheelbase settings?

        Short links with those axles yes! But that was before I modeled the AX axles. Those were just from my Rock-1 Cad Crawler which was mostly TLT and rustler part based. This is a very early render I did. It still has a ways to go, but I like to keep things simple so hopefully I can get some time a work on it. The LR3 part is just the body I was planning on using for this build, so I'll have to work in some generic mounting options. I also want to do something for interchangeable bumpers....again trying to keep it simple will be difficult.

          Work the bumper mounts in with the body mounts possibly ?

            My initial thought on body mounting is to give the person a choice and provide some different mounting points. As soon as you combine things, you limit some options. But, there is plenty of time to try some different approaches.

              Nice chassis. Like the mocked up drawing.

                leafs?

                Been toying with the idea of leafs in back? What's everyone's thoughts? It would mess up the AX-10 easy conversion part though.....

                Noticed CKRC just came out with scale rail...very basic, but at $42 it's cheap!

                This rail design should be way nicer, but everything isn't free.....

                  you mean the ugly xtrail clone.. that thing looks terrible IMO.. and the xtrail price has dropped to 39.99.. to bad for the clone

                  IMO your chassis looks good as it is if it is a direct bolt up to the ax10 and you can price it around the xtrail you will sell tons of them.. from the looks of the design you would have to do major changes to set it up for leaf's I would make this entry level and then design the leaver separate..

                  there are lots of guys out there that love the bolt together scaler idea. i would stick with what you started and not over complicate..

                    Yeah, ugly clone is right unfortunately. I was being nice, then I noticed the price drop...oh well.

                    I most likely will go along those lines. Right now I'm using a custom tranny mount because I'm not to fond of the AX one in plastic. Not sure if I'll go with delrin or aluminum. I like Alum for the threading so a slim chance no one will over torque (there are always a few), but delrin has it's advantages too.

                      delrin holds threads pretty well but you are probably right there would be striped out threads using it custom skid would be nice that way people can choose transmission as well
