The Dane Cook fans should get the title

well time to start a new project.
i picked up this bushwaker body last year, and it was time to finally time to do something with it. i wanted a trail FJ with some KOH flair. started by making a chassis to fit the 11" WB. being short on free time i contacted Daniel with some ideas i had about the tube work, i sent him some MS paint doodles and he said sure, he could handle it no problem, his work is amazing so i know it would be in good hands. also gave Dan at Mayhem a shout and ran some ideas by him about a set of wheels and he also said he could do what i had in mind. I boxed up a chassis, the body, and some brasing tabs and sent them off to daniel to get the project underway.

Chassis: TSS Custom 11"
Tube work: 100% Daniels work
Wheels: Mayhem Engineering Custom 5 spoke one-offs
Axles: RC4WD "ultimate scale" toyota axles
Tires: RC4WD Rox Lox
Body: Proline Bushwacker

got the custom wheels back from Dan at Mayhem! he did a killer job, exactly what i told him i wanted.
ive got novas 2 stage foams in the front and stock rc4wd grey foams in the rear. ill be curious how differently they perform on the rocks.
Dan did a sweet job on these things!

well wakeboard season is over, so im finally making some progress on this.

shes a roller!
unforuntly alot of plans have changed. with the tiny nose of the fenderless FJ, i just couldnt fit the disrupter tranny and 540, let alone room for rx, esc, and battery. so had to go with a skid mount axial tranny, unfortunatly that means ill now have a spur and top of tranny sticking threw my interior :( also had to go to a puller because of some clearance issues. did a chassis mount servo but im getting tons of bump steer. if i cant get that tuned out, ill have to do axle mount :(
but with all the setbacks/changes im just happy to be making some progress ;)

panhard is how you are going to get rid of it. i tried a standard four link with chassis mounted servo on my old K5 and had your problems. i switched to a three link and panhard set up and all problems gone.

you have any shots of the front axle to see if you have room?

well with BOWTIE's "Put up or Shut up" scale comp in 5 days i figured i better kick into high gear. spent the last two nights making final details, tearing down, and painting. lots of work left before the comp saturday.
