thanks mike!
so far its working in my favor! lol

i removed the 3mm threadrod & 3/16" alloy tubing and opted for HPI savage alloy bars which evenly space this TVP now. Also gives me a platform to mount a plate ontop allowing for my electronics.

well.... started gettin the axles prepped for this rig....



before i head off to bed....
managed to get the axles stripped down to the bare-essentials! lol
ill need to repair the one axle up front as the support bar screw broke out from
the transcase. ooof! lol

tommorow after my LHS visit...ill be fabricating a 3-link post mount which will be installed
through the existing hole in the center/top of the axles (where the old bellcrank went).
Basically it will be x1 piece which will have x3 different mounting locations, a spacer to fill
the large hole in the transcase, x2 bolts, a spacer and a nut. Pretty simple design!
hard to explain, but ill post more as it unfolds!

found some axial standoffs for my bodymounts!
the alloy i used was too soft and kept moving around, so these
are solid!


ill be working on the 3-link postmounts later aswel as mounting up the lower links to the axles.

TEMPLATE
3-Link Post Mount

Here's the general design for my mount, still a little trimming to
do to make it look right but this is pretty much it.
A spacer will run through the hole in the axle and up into this custom
mount which is followed by a 3mm machine screw.

the mounts are solid, cutting was a fuckin whore! lol

Thundertech wheel widners and big nobby tires installed, all the lower end stuff is finished (spacers, screrws, nuts, threadlocked, etc...) Still need something 10mm thick to fabricate my custom 3-link post mounts. Just cant seem to find anything with this thickness??
