    R2J made me custom set of his Stainless steel links for the honcho.











    I also threw in Holmes hobbies waterproof BR-XL and just to try out Reedy MVP 24* stock motor in.

    I know the wiring is mess, Once I settle on motor it will get cleaned up.



    I scored these wheels. I also scored a set of 5 1.9 pitbulls. MThead made me up a set of rings too.

    I started working on my wheels Tuesday night and broke my tap, I stopped by Hobby town and picked up new tap. Got them finished up last night.

    Great minds think alike I guess because I have something really similar to those being cut at the machine shop right now.
    :thumbsup:

    One issue we came across is the lug spacing and the hex area on the back.
    Did you drill/tap through or cut the screws really short?

    If you did 2mm or 2-56 bolts you should be able to fit 8 of them for the hub.

    Mine are drilled and tapped 4-40x.5 bolts.

    I ordered hot racing spools and avid bearings. I have not touch the inners of axles since 2010! :shock:

    Figured with 2 years of runs they would look nasty and seized up bearings. None of the bearing were and the diff didn't look too bad.

    I ran into issue with one the spools I couldn't get the shaft to sit all the way. I sent it off to MThead and he fixed it, also sent me some replace beadlock rings. I will get rear axle button up hopefully tomorrow.



    Another mod I'm thinking about doing.

    Me too.

    No, I'm going to have to shave the ring gear. Then I will glue some lexan to bottom.

    I'm interested to see how this comes out!

    Can you take a picture of that cut diff from straight above the cut out part?
