Okey, spring is getting closer here in Finland and now it's time to build a new Unlimited class rig. I had driven five years with my old rig and allthought it was unstoppable in the hills, it was time to put it on a shelf.  Wink


I got the wheels and tires from my previous rig. That's the new body for the rig. If everything will go as planned, it'll get a Krawler Konceptz treat.  Wink


Here is what I'm starting with. I bought it used and it had broken rear diff and pinion. Gotta fix those, when I find the parts.


Front axle is ready to go! Cool


Some working with the rear of the car is to be done.


That's where I got so far. I have to buy some parts first and then I can start building it. A little over a month to the first comp.  Grin

I will have to hurry!  Shocked

Let's get this project on the way! I've finished my crawlers, so now it's time to put the foff rigs on the move.


My starting point.  Grin


Fortunately I've got company!  Wink


Bought some wider hexes for it.


And new rear diff gearing.


All the spare parts in there. Let's see what I need.


Here's the old diff. To my naked eye, I don't see the gearing as big problem as the bearing on the right side.  Grin Grin


New diff housing as well.


Will change everything just to be sure.  Wink


Diff reassembled.


Some of this magnificent Vanquish Products grease on it and it's ready to rumble again.  Wink


Attaching the diff housing to the rear axle.


Well greased! Cool


Few screws to attach still.


I'm beginning to see the bigger picture here!  Cheesy


Ladies and gents - we have a roller!! Cool


Diff works.  Grin


It looks awesome as a roller IMO.


From the rear.


Next job would be repainting the body.


And the electronics workout after that.  Cheesy


Weight as a roller.


Aprrox. weight RTR.


Gonna run it with 5S and 2200kv motor. Same set as my previous rig.  Wink


Battery fits on the box perfectly.


Here are my both foffers. They will be comp ready after this weekend.  Wink


I'll continue with painting and electronics today in the garage. I want to test it today!!  Wink

No NYT se rakennusbuumi on sitte näköjään iskenyt tännekin! Et kumminkaa ihan jättänyt siihen kisaa edeltävään iltaan  Cheesy
Saas nähdä tuleeko tällä autolla olemaan yhtä totaalista dominointia kuin Red Eaglella.  Smiley

Ei nyt oikein ole buumia ollut, mutta pakon edestä alkaa viimeistään tapahtumaan. Ehkä parilla kaljallakin saatiin projektiin vauhtia. Suorituskyvystä ei ole harmainta aavistusta, joten mielenkiintoista on nähdä mihin tämä veijari kykenee. Aihio vaikuttaa tosissaankin kyllä asialliselta. Pakko alkaa nyt väkertämään, kun sen tietää, että pyhien jälkeen ensi viikko ollaan sidottuna töihin ja lauantaina pitäisi ajaa jo kilpaa.  Grin

Okey, spend some more time at the garage yesterday.


Servo was going to change in the last minute. The Protek will go to my modified class rig and the Savöx will be for this.


Motor found it's place quickly.  Wink


I wasn't build for soldering. So I got some help.  Grin


Servo is on the spot now as well!


It's easier like this. You have all the places ready for the electornics and you don't have to start building mounts for them.  Grin


Quickly attached ESC and tested with a low EPA's first. Dont want it to go full throttle with 5S LiPo.  Grin


Everything works. Time to start soldering.


Thank god, I only have to do this max. once in a year.  Grin


Don't need zip ties for the wiring. It's tight enough.  Grin


Hmmmmm....


It's all there!  Wink


All the electronics are now on their spots.


Tight tolerances for the wiring indeed.  Roll Eyes


Insert battery here.


Ready for first testdrive!  Wink


Model named now as well.  Wink


Nothing went wrong this time! Everything works as they should.  Wink Power seemed to be left in the batteries as well.  Grin Can't wait to go to the hills with it.


That's the weight RTR for now.  Wink

Tomorrow we are heading for some local gravel pits to test these rigs. Hopefully everything will go as planned, cause the season opener is just one week away now!  Shocked

Time to get up and out!  Grin


Thrilled to see this beast on the hill.


So far so good! Cool


This thing seems to be unstoppable. I gave it some really hard time out there to see the possible weak points.  Grin


It seemed, that the batteries had also waited for the summer.  Cheesy


In the whole half an hour bashing nothing broke. That's kind of a record for me!  Shocked


It still needs fine tuning on the suspension and steering, but all of those I can do next week.


Both of my rigs were awesome today. Can't wait to start the season next weekend! Cool

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cSXX3i1C8AE&feature=youtube_gdata
Here is the first half of the battery on video! "thumbsup" As you can see, I gave it a little bit extra throttle here and there.  Grin

Next thing would be painting the body. After that some tuning and then it's ready for it's first comp!

Time to finish this rig for it's debyt comp!


First layer of paint to the body.


Second one.


I made some changes to the rig itself after the first practise session. Roll bars from front and rear are now gone. They just don't work in environment like this.


All that sand came off from the rig.  Cheesy


Secured all the screws as well.


Almost done!


Third layer of paint drying.


What the actual f***?!  Shocked


Oh dear god... I ruined it.


Or?


Did I?


Probably yes.  Grin Grin


The artist in me.  Grin Grin


I'm pretty happy about it though. It wasn't supposed to be pretty. Cool


Decals do a lot for this body.


It's ready for the battle! There will be over ten rigs on the line so it'll be one hell of a fight! But I'm confident.  Wink


Let's have some fun shall we!  Wink

Pics and videos will follow.  Smiley

Tuo muuten hyvä idea ottaa nuo kallistuksenvakaajat pois tuolta, koska eihän noista ole mitään hyötyä foff autossa, päin vastoin jopa.
Pitääpä tänään ottaa tuosta broncosta heti pois nuo kun kotiin pääsen, siinä on hiukan liian jäykkä tuo alusta, vaikka iskareissa ei ole mitään "korokkeita" jousissa enää.

Mukavastihan se debyytti sujui. Auto tuntui pelaavan hyvin. Kyllä se tarvii kovan pistekeskiarvon voittoon, kun reilu 310p riitää "vasta" toiselle sijalle. Tiukkaa kisaa uudelleen sitten Kangasalla Cool.

Kyllä kisailu jatkukoon tällaisena!  Cool

Kiitokset!  Smiley

Wanderer's debut comp is now behind.


That's a rispectful amount of rigs in the line. There hasn't been so many since 2010.  Shocked


All shapes of rollcages. Cool


Course three waiting for Wanderer.


Off we go!


Rig seemed to be relatively easy to predict, which is helping a lot in driving. Smiley


First two courses went well and rig managed to do nearly every gate.


The bottom of the hill reached again. Time to go up!


Clean performance so far!  Smiley


Time to give it all for perfection.  Tongue


The reason why I've been driving foff ten years now. Cool


And another perfect score with a nice flight!  Grin


Wanderer takes off to the last course.


Can't really say I'm dissapointed with the rig. It does everything that my old rig would've done.  Wink Some parts even better.


On the 200 point gate.


Final effort to reach the top of the last course. Wasn't able to do that, but I'm still pleased with the result.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=odCQnkaBuYU
Here we have course five on video. This was really the decider for my success. Only one to make it to the top. With style! Cool


Victory just ahead of my team mates. What a retard pic....  Grin


And finally the results. As you can see it really was a tight comp from start to finish. Can't except nothing more from the next comp after two weeks.  Wink

Hopefully we'll get that many rigs on the line in there too. This was a really good way to start this rig's career and season! Cool

Mahtavaa oli seurata tämänkin auton "uudelleensyntymistä", ja menoa debyyttikisassa!  Smiley
Etenkin meidän väsäämän jakson lopetus jäi mieleen  Wink
(sitä tehdessä ajattelinkin, että jos tuonne joku menee niin se on Samu Wandererillaan  Cheesy)

Se vaan on ihan sama mikä auto on alla, suoritukset ovat upeaa katseltavaa!  Smiley
... niin että ens kisan ajat sitte Hannun Tikrulla  Grin  Grin

Onnea vielä voito(i)sta!

Lupaan ajaa Tikrulla kakkoskuskina, jos sellainen paikka suodaan, niin loppuu se vittuilu.  Grin Grin

I'm ready for tomorrows Foff Cup #2!


No changes after the first comp. I'll go there to learn new things about the rig. " Wink


"April Dust". There's fourteen rigs registered for unlimited class tomorrow. Should be a fight of a century! Doin my best and knowing this thing is a winner!  Wink

Comp number two is in the books!


It was held in southern Finland last saturday.


Thirteen rigs were due to start!  Shocked


I don't remember seeing this kind of fleet in ages!  Cool


First course.


I got the advantage of driving in other rigs tire marks. It's like train rails.  Grin


Up!


The start of this course was easy.


Down again! This thing really moves when you pull the throttle!  Tongue


Last two gates were really tough!


Got just a little bit grip from the cliff, but the nose was already heading to wrong direction...  Grin


Down again we go.


Course three next.


In this course the last gate was long vertical cliff. Couple of rigs in front of me did a huuuge 360 degrees in the air and landed on their tires on the top. I just wanted a clean performance to continue in the lead.  Wink


I'm slowly beginning to learn this rigs basic behaviour.


Off we go to the last gate. FULL THROTTLE!  Shocked


There it is! Touched the white marked, but got myself to the top! Cool


Course five. A big problem was the visibility for some reason on this course.  Grin


And these tires don't even throw the sand like Proline Maxx Paddles.


I almost made it to the top.

https://youtu.be/0j3Er_0Tbsw
Here is my best performance of the day. From course three. Jump included! Cool


Besides all good perfomances, I had one bad which ruined my comp entirely. I rolled over at the first gates of the timed course. That means zero poitns from there. This is something that doesn't happen to me every day. Now it did and it was all because I was reling too much in the balance of the new rig. Well, shit happens and it left me with postition five.

After the comp I bashed with the car a bit and the motor got jammed. I'll have to see, what's the problem there, but I suspect it's the front bearing that has collapsed. There's good two weeks before the next comp, so I have plenty of time to order a spare.  Wink

Yep, just as I suspected...


The front bearing of my motor is in one million and two pieces.


Completely ruined.


That is quite badly stuck there. Gotta find a way to remove it without braking the can.


Inside of the bearing on the rotor.

For now, I'll order a new motor, which will be Castle Creations 2200kv motor. I'll fix this one and keep it as a spare.  Wink
