  • just a little tweaking!!

    so i was unhappy with the way the 2.2 performed last year. I new i had to change some things around on it.

    1. lower the cog. not really many options here other than chopping of the top half of the cage and lowering it.
    or to is loose the sub c sized 6 cell battery from under the hood and put something on the axles, but i just hate the way that looks, and i am not sold on lipo yet. waiting on lithium manganese. so i opted for no changes, i think i may build a whole new chassis this winter

    2. move the front shock mounts. the straight up and down mounts just weren't cutting it. it was limiting my flex big time!! so i brazed on some new mounts lower and further back on the chassis! now she flexes great! and it actually helped with being so top heavy! and the suck down winch may actually have more of an effect now!

    3. NEED more power!! so out with the 55t lathe and in with the 35t warrior!! (thanks bustedcrawler) Wow this thing is awsome!! i even was able to move from an 8t pinion to a 13t pinion, she has all kinds of cow bell and power now!!

    woohoo cant wait for the first comp!!

          She had cowbell, very nice man, very nice.

          I am going with a 9t pinion, and we will see if 8 cells will keep the cowbell up. That 7T puller loves her amps.
