    Beast of a Project

    Some parts arrived that I got a hell of a deal on. Now I need to decide which direction I would like to take them on this project. Here is a picture of the parts.



    It is basically all the parts of a RC4WD Beast, minus a couple parts. It also included 2 Axial SCX-10 chassises and a Tekin FXR. The Beast chassis was a little rough. So I spent about a hour straightening and bending it back into shape. I may still make a custom chassis out of the Axial parts.

    Here is the Beast chassis all assembled.

    Now that I have it assemebled, I am trying to decide what direction to take the drive train. I am trying to decide between the stock 2 speed tranny or my version of the big V8 diesel. ;-)

    Here is a pic of the rig with the stock tranny.



    Since the 1:1 Mans have a big v8 diesel, I decided to see how would a Fracture V8 work as a diesel for this build. What do you think?









    I removed the cooling fan and air cleaner for a diesel look. Also keep in mind the Man body will be showing the tranny portion of the motor. I know I would be losing the 2 speed capabilities.

    Here is a picture of the Beast chassis sitting next to a 1.9 Bruiseruptor chassis for size comparison.

    Love it! If it were me, I'd make the tandem axles the front, both steering. Regardless, looking forward to seeing this one progress! :thumbsup:

    My body finally made it in safely, after a UPS train derailment. Here are a few pics of it. I also included a few pics of the rig next to some other 1/10 scale vehicles for sizing. The body is has not been mounted as of yet. There is plenty to do before that takes place.

    That's just too cool... BTW, I just picked up an F104X1. You should come down to Austin and race with us.
