I built the shocks last night ...... I assembled them in sprung specs ..... but after doing a little more research .... im thinking of switching to droop set up ....

Strawb's G-made R1 Rock Buggy IMG00478-20100622-1933

the G-transitions shocks are very well built ..... damper compression is consistent .....

and they look really cool ....

Strawb's G-made R1 Rock Buggy IMG00479-20100622-2022


this is the stock skid plate where the links are attached too .....

Strawb's G-made R1 Rock Buggy IMG00481-20100622-2205

Strawb's G-made R1 Rock Buggy IMG00482-20100622-2205

i wanted some hop up parts for this one but since i'm on a budget now from the xevo project and this one .... i decided to do some custom work ...

i did a few cutting mods here and there so that I have my links in board ..... reason for which ..... so that the links wont get caught in rocks .... percentage of them getting caught when on the outside is higher ...... damaged rig .... damaged play time ....
so keep em in-board .....

Strawb's G-made R1 Rock Buggy IMG00483-20100623-1120

the gaps i put in the skid boards is where the links will be mounted on ....

more to come ....


thanks for lookin

@allen, really nice.. we appreciate you guys documenting the build(s). It's so hard to pause to take pictures when you are on the mindset of finishing the build before the wife wakes up.. laughing

Hi,
You should definitley change the shocks to droop, my CR01 works much better sat low over the axles and with the GMade portal axles yours will have more than enough ground clearance even with droop.

had decent work put in last night .......

the material used for the axles seem the business ...... it feels like it can take some real beating .....

the stainless axle cover has a very nice touch to the whole axle as well ....

assembled the transmission and mounted it on my modded skid plate ..... the cuts i made on the skid plate like i sadi will accomodate the links .... instead of havin them outside the chassis ..

Strawb's G-made R1 Rock Buggy IMG00501-20100623-2259


this is how the modded skid plate looks after i assembled and installed the links ...... i have to say this made me pretty happy as it fit really well and the triangulation of the links had better angles ....

update:

i finally found myself some lead weights from a local balancing shop here in alain ....

i put 160grams on each front rim and 60grams on each for the rear before installing the white dot rovers ....

Strawb's G-made R1 Rock Buggy IMG00544-20100702-2106


i reconfigured the wiring for the esc and the motor ...... shortened the wires and relocated the goat esc to the rear of the rig ....

Strawb's G-made R1 Rock Buggy IMG00551-20100703-1957


installed a JR DS8411 ultra torque digital servo .......

i fabricated myself a front mounted battery tray .... space is fitted to receive a 11.1V 3s lipo ..... found myself velcros to hold the batteries as well ...
