Gmade KOMODO #3 Driveshafts, links and skid plate

After short break, we are back with another part of Komodo build 🙂 The main part of the driveshafts is made of plastic and can be mounted only one way. They are made slightly different than the ones I knew till now and they are put together with c-clips. What I like about them is the fact, they are thick and look very solid. Links are made of aluminium and have metal balls (?) in ball joints (correct me if I named it wrong 😉 ). Links have 7mm in diameter (for comparison – Axial SCX-10 ones have 6mm). As with the gearbox, screws and nuts are needed to mount links onto the skid plate. I really like this solution 🙂 Post brought to you by:

Project G6 #3 Links & steering

We are heading to the end of the “stock build” – it’s second before last post about it 🙂 Here come Project G6 links and steering! What I like about the KIT version of this rig is that it contains metal links 🙂 As I wrote at the beggining of this post – next week I will show you the last bunch of pictures from the stock build. So all the fun is gonna start on April 6th, 2015 😉 Stay tuned! 🙂 Post brought to you by:

Project G6 #2 Driveshafts & shocks

First step – driveshafts. Fortunately they are “the old type” (WB8) and I don’t have to change anything, as I like them better than “the new type” (WB8-HD). REMEMBER! It’s important to hold both couplers of the driveshaft the same way, while putting the driveshaft together. What I mean is to look at the pins at both ends – they should be in parallel position, so the whole driveshaft works smoothly 🙂 It will work either way, but you’ll notice the difference 🙂 Second step – shocks. I really like putting them together 🙂 As you can see – all of the parts are stock. But not for long, not for long… 😉 Post brought to you by:
