    Traxxas SRB... Stadium Racing Buggy

    I think it's about time I post my Traxxas build here

    I'm working on an unlimited buggy like the ones in LOORS and TORC
    build with Traxxas parts instead of just buying a Losi XXX-SCB





    I'm calling it the Traxxas SRB after the Vintage SRT I'm using for parts

    Have a look at the prototype chassis
    It's made of alloy but the finished chassis will be 3mm G-10 fibreglass with 5mm G-10 front and 3mm rear shock towers

    And a custom Rollcage




    I modelled my cage after the Losi SCB and I did think about getting one, but it looks to narrow
    My cage will be around 4" wide

    The fibreglass sheets are ready to be cut out



    Chassis and tower cut out, only need a bit of sanding



    The chassis plates and towers are done

    but theses still a few things left, before I can drive it

    It's a roller


    I handmade a ball-bearing supported bell crank




    Does this look familiar :lol:



    I need longer front arms mounted with the Pro-Line inline steering,
    that means, custom front arms


    I want an alloy motor-plate so I need to do a bit of milling on the gearbox
    besides, I can't find my original SRT gearbox

    Still need to:
    Redo the bulkhead

    Weld the roll-cage

    Sort the electronic

    Very cool idea! Can't wait to see the finished product! You should send it to Traxxas!

    Thanks guys

    "Small" update

    17mm hex




    Need to fab a custom shaft , the proline inline hub uses 1/4" bearings and the 17mm hex is 5mm


    RPM gear cover and Rustler drive shafts



    I made the custom front axle, and the 17mm hex fits perfectly now
    but the plastic links have to go bye bye :evil:
    I need 3 or 3,5mm turnbuckles with heavy duty rod ends








    Nylon plates and Tie-Rod links mounted

    Got the C on the right side and mounted the link in front so the hub doesn't rub







    Got my old lathe cross table modified for the drill press
    So I can remake the bulkhead



    LOL you should see my work table and the parts storage at work :lol: It's SPOTLESS,
    My hobby room is a 230 square foot workshop crammed in to an 8'x12' area ops:

    I hate moving

    Next ...Rollcage

    I checked the rules for Pro Buggy wheel and overall size

    Tyres 35" x 10,5" tyres = 110mm x 33mm
    Wheels 17" x 9" = 54mm x 28,5mm

    My wheel base is 335mm, like the Slash and Losi xxx-scb


    I do think that the Jconcepts J82 front wheels & tyres will look allot better

    welding jig

    Thanks
    You can count on me testing the snot out of this buggy

    One side done and bolted to the chassis






    Almost done with the center section






    How's this ?




    It's very close to what I want, only need to make the rear section.
    And a heap of odds and ends

    What now ?

    How do I mount the motor ?





    Alloy motor plate done

    The Idler shaft is hollow so I simply screw a bolt in to the plate to hold it in place, you can see where the bolt will be
