  • Another one....Brennan's rig...Silvy truggy

    I've been teaching my oldest son how to braze & do tube work (he's 11).



    He wanted a scale/mud truck in the worst way & after getting straight A's for the third time this year...... I gave in



    He built the tranny and we each built an axle. He also did most of the bends and cuts (it's only a lil crooked!) I held the torch and he applied the silver solder. I even let him do the last few joints all by himself!!



    Just got it PC'ed and we're gonna hang the axles tomorrow.



    Well here's the specs:



    Ax-10 axles & tranny
    Axial 8 hole beadlocks
    2.2 mudslingers
    traxxas & Integy shocks
    Dale Jr. Silvy cab
    & no electronics yet!!!

              Thanks guys!

              We decided to run droop in the front w/ axial shocks to lower it. He likes how it sits, but I wanna move the rear axle back a lil. The rear axle needs locked out & the tranny needs mounted.

              I have a sheet of styrene diamond plate that I'm a cut out and let him paint for the bed...and maybe an interior

              Don't know what we're gonna do for electronics. I have a waterproof ESC and I might try one of those warrior 35T's. He wants some wheelspeed!











              Max Flex!




              Yeah he'll be at the comps. He still has his comp rig running strong w/ a few upgrades. He ran twice w/ me up at Freddies.

                  Well it's a runner. Had it at Ohiopyle & acidentally took it for a swim & cracked the body

                  So I'm not going to play w/ it anymore until he runs it! Still needs an interior, but that' on the back burner for now!
