Project G6 – Upgrade #2 – Pitbull tires & Gear Head beadlock rims

It didn’t take me to much time to decide what tires I should choose for #ProjectG6 because Sandra (sweetworldofs) got pretty nice set last year. And as she was able to drive in every terrain, I was sure there are no other tires I want for #ProjectG6 more than these ones. If it comes to rims – just look at them 🙂 My only problem was to decide which style will fit it best.. As you can see on the pic above I’ve chosen Pitbull Tires (ROCK BEAST 1.9 SCALE RC TIRES W/2 STAGE FOAM) and Gear Head rims (Gear Head RC 1.9 Hammer Five Spoke Beadlock Wheels). As I wrote earlier – those tires are great. Their name says it all – they work brilliantly on rocks (I drove Sandra’s Honcho in Sweden last year and as you may know they have some cool, rocky places there :D). Sand…

Project G6 – Upgrade #1 – WARN winch & RC4WD bumper

As I wanted to have a winch in this project, I’ve decided to change the front bumper from plastic to metal one. My choice was “TOUGH ARMOR STUBBY FRONT BUMPER TO FIT AXIAL SCX10” from RC4WD, as it fits the winch I wanted perfectly 🙂 And looks pretty good, too 😉 I also wanted to have a rear bumper, so I made some cutting on the “old” front bumper as you can see below. I also had to make two more holes to be able to fit it better in the back. I think it looks really nice 🙂 After adjusting bumpers, there was time for the winch and winch’s control unit (that I had to order from other place, as CKRC had it out of stock. Fortunately our good buddy Martin from RC Bitz had it :D). I wanted this exact winch as it has it’s counterpart in 1:1…

Project G6 #4 Gearbox & frame

The last “stock build post” – Project G6 gearbox and frame! 🙂 Sigh… Yeah… I know… The slipper pad is on the wrong side at this picture… The original Axial tires (Maxxis) are put on the rims only to show how the rig looks, when it’s ready – I’m not gonna keep them. I’m gonna show you what wheels Project G6 gonna ride on in one of the future posts 😉 Stay tuned! 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:

Project G6 #1 Axles

I’m not gonna write about the whole process of “Project G6 axles build”, as I believe most of you saw Axial’s axles build more than once on youtube – just show you on pictures, how I did it and how I protect axles from water. Remember to check if they work just fine right after you put them together! If you don’t, and something is not right, you risk ruining them faster, than you think! Post brought to you by:
