    Monster Jam Fall Guy Truck

    Hey
    I'm designing a Monster Truck chassis, It has an E-Maxx 2 speed gearbox with a 2350Kv motor, 3 servos and a 150A esc. I use Twin Force axles, Clod Buster wheels and Nitro USA-1 tyres
    It's 420mm long and has a Wheel Base of 335mm and the top cage will be separate, with spacers between the side and main chassis


    Here are a few photos

    Version 4 CAD drawing (should be the final version but that might change)


    Prototype in 5mm black delrin and version 2 in 5mm alloy


    Version 2 with short shocks


    Version 2 with long shocks, gearbox and servos installed (Why I need the version 4)


    2 speed shifting servo


    Servo testing with reversing Y harness


    F150 body




    E-Maxx 3906 body




    Test with ESC

    Version 4




    Time to build

    Made a new motor mount, centered the motor over the gearbox and got the battery tray in the back now


    The wiring is still a bit spaghetti like


    and I got my Rumbler tyres

    thats just really awesome, great job man. that looks real professional.
    If nobody comes back from the future to stop you, how bad of a decision can it be?

    I narrowed the wheel so it would clear the steering arm on the knuckle and at the same time get a slightly ballonish look

    I can't even use the stock USA-1 wheels 'cos the steering arm on the knuckle is longer on the re-released Mad Force compared to the older version

    Here's how it looks with the narrowed wheel



    And if it was full width

    respect your elders. we've been around longer and done more stupid things than you, therefore we're smarter
