Lovin the "budget" setup too, it shows that not all of us have pockets pouring out with $$$

Thanks guys, the budget thing is really me jus not buying online, other wise i'd go nuts lol. I have a small update, the rear axel when everything was in place and basicaly ready for installation, was much to wide so i had to make it narrow. i did that bymaking the box its housed in a bit smaller and grinding down the cups that hold the dog bone allowing the dogbones to deliver power from a steeper angle.






thats the stock and modifed cups.

Here it is just about done. The rear end was still way to wide so I made my own pair of rear arms which was actually super easy and fixed my problem really well in just about 30 minutes. Unfortunately the gear 'cluster' I made in the back deattached b/c the glue I used isn't meant for that type of plastic so I mixed two glues and hope they hold. The pictures show the articulation which I'm gald worked out. I haven't mouted the body yet and im not too sure on how i will yet either
Whats left:
-Modify former front wheels from O to D shape, so they actually transfer power
-Repair my small drive gear to stop it from slipping on the servos output shaft
-Make room under the chassis for the tiebar
-Attach steering servo to tiebar
-Close front and back gearhousing boxes
-Enclose drive shaft, drive gears
-Build enclosers for dtill to be added electonics and battery then attach them
-Wire up the body with the appropriate lights
So I'm obviously not out of the woods yet but things look pretty good.

Looking good! Just a word of advice, if its going to be a crawler, you might actually want to limit articulation.
