Micro Series Inner Fender Set for Axial SCX24 1/24 Chevrolet C10 RTR

Depending on your shrink wrap you might want to put two layers of shrink wrap, then use an exacto knife cut a small x on one side and a small hole on what will be the backside. Now push the stock yes stock ball stud through the side with an x until you see threads come out of the hole,just the threads,now use whatever hex driver your using and make a little pivot room shocks have to have a little pivot room then thread them in.

I took out the body post screw out for the top of the shock mount with an o ring or some small spacer behind it for clearance. Used bottom stock hole. This works for the HR Losi grease shocks also.

Lets see some pictures of them mounted and some articulation shots. I just ordered a set 4 of old man emu shocks for the D Have it set up as droop right now, with no springs. Will be putting internal springs in once I soft enough springs. Sorry for the picture sizing guys! Obviously first time posting pics. How do the shocks compare to the stock Mini Gelande shocks?

They should smooth out more over time. I also have a heavier body coming in so maybe that will help. The flex is there as well which is what I was looking for.

Up to this point the options have been a little limited for doing that on the SCX For stock length links refer to the drawing below. It shows how long each link is eye to eye, how long to cut the tubing, and how long to cut the threaded rod to get the desired link.

For custom lengths, do the math and it can be easy to make them however you want to suit any wheelbase. Here is what you get from Shapeways. Probably the most important step is to clean out the holes where the rod ends thread in.

There is usually some left over powder from the 3D printing process that needs to get removed using the end of your allen tool or something similar.

This is important because if there is left over powder in there threading the rod in may compress it and cause the rod end to spit during assembly. Next you will want to cut the threaded rod and tubing to the required lengths. Try to clean up any burrs on the threaded rod after cutting, and also try to make the tubing ends flat and square where the cuts are made.

Remove the ball ends from the factory Axial suspension links.

I like to use my 1. It is typically easier to remove them on the side that they push further out on. Carefully cut the rod ends off of the tree using some flush cutters. You will want to end up with little to no material left on the rod end when you are finished. Use a sharpie to blacken the part up where the cut was made. The parts get assembled as shown below. Be careful not to overtighten the rod ends when they start to contact the tubes. You will notice a little recess in the "tree" that holds all the rod ends.

That is intended to hold the ball end when you snap the rod end over it during reassembly. You will find it pretty handy to have. Once you have all the links assembled, install them on your truck and enjoy the results of making some custom parts for yourself without breaking the bank.

Feel free to post any questions or comments below, and happy building! Are the links on the C10 the same as the Jeep? I will have to try and update the drawing sometime.

So I got my kido a scx24 for her birthday, and burned out the motor 2 months later, got a new motor and it lasted a day.

So now I cant find a motor and dont want to keep burning up the little stock ones. The rig has brass steering knuckles, diff covers, and aluminum skid, so its pulling some weight. Sponsored Links. Re: Scx24 motor upgrades? Seems like the motor issue is becoming more common. Any motor from the other available micros should be a direct swap, usually even the pinion.

Well, you may have to solder on motor wires. You can also use the motors from the ECX Barrage. It's like a longer version of the motors, but the motor mount holes are reversed. You can drill new motor mount holes or order a new motor plate from shapeways. I'm new to the whole rc world I got a redcat e10 and 2 scx24, jeep, and c Only been it it sence Christmas, is a brushless a drop in or do I need to do anything else. Brushless would require a new ESC.

The motor mount holes are opposite, but it's easy to drill new holes in the motor plate. And again is larger than of the above and is what was used in xmods back in the day. You will need a custom motor mount from shapeways.Even though GM made significant design changes from the old leaf-spring and straight-axle configurations of the previous generations, suspension upgrades for these trucks are critical to achieving optimum ride and handling or controlling power from late-model engines under hard acceleration.

You can do a lot of great things with them, and the aftermarket has actually been picking up with a lot of product offerings. They ride so much better than the earlier straight-axle trucks.

Big Changes In InChevrolet introduced a new drop-center ladder-frame for its full-size trucks. Some trucks could be ordered with auxiliary quarter-elliptical springs mounted behind the axle for more payload and towing support, and 1-ton models had the traditional leaf-spring setup.

This generation pickup truck also saw the first appearance of a new model-designation system that dropped the previous, and badges worn by the venerable through Task-Force-era vehicles. Suspension upgrades will allow more flexibility to ride height adjustments and improved handling. InChevrolet released its most significant truck restyling to date, with a lower, sleeker profile, and offered new features such as carpeting and bucket seats in its Custom Sport Truck option.

Hence, this time frame is often referred to as the Custom Sport Truck era. Another major redesign came inand that generation lasted through the model year before the ground-breaking GMT platform was introduced in The front kits feature tubular upper and lower control arms with coilovers and a rack-and-pinion steering conversion.

InChevy moved away from trailing arms and coil springs, utilizing leaf springs. One common denominator between the kits from both manufacturers is that welding is not required for installation. Some sections of the frame may have to be cut, and there will be grinding to clearance some parts. Also, a few holes may have to be drilled or enlarged, but no special tools are required for the installation.

While a good set of hands, power tools, and a shop lift are most useful, these installations can be completed by an experienced mechanic, or with the help of a few friends in a home garage. The basic design features unequal-length upper and lower tubular A-arms with rack-and-pinion steering and coilovers, although an air suspension can be substituted.

The kit can be ordered with or without dropped spindles, and with different spring rates. Numerous disc-brake options are also available.Any room at home can also become the setting for exciting feats and contests. We've also included extra suspension links for adjusting your wheelbase length. The hinged body system offers easy access to on-board components. You can quickly reach the battery and chassis by removing two body clips and swinging the body up.

The product is fully assembled, and we've included batteries for the transmitter, and a LiPo battery pack and USB charger.

Suspension Upgrades For The Classic Chevy C10 Truck

The front and rear axles consist of a two piece, molded plastic solid axle design. The Dynamite 88T brushed electric motor provides the right amount of torque to help ascend steep climbs. The front and rear differentials each house a worm screw and worm gear setup to get the power to the axles and create higher ground clearance.

Steel front and rear axles, front stub axles along with steel dogbones provide strength and durability to keep things running during tough climbs and rough trails. The front and rear drive shafts are splined and sleeved to allow for maximum suspension travel while keeping the power to the wheels.

Two bright LED lights are included and are mounted in the front bumper. The MR Hole is a fresh take on the classic hole-wheel design that dominated early off road racing. Just like the Double Standard and NV, the Hole features a simulated beadlock ring by way of a strategically placed under-cut on the outer lip of the wheel.

No bushings found here, instead the drivetrain is freely spinning on sealed cartridge bearings throughout the entire vehicle. Mounted just above the front axle is the Axial AS-1 servo, with a servo saver that allows for steering accuracy, while also providing protection for the servo gears in the event of a bind or impact. All other trademarks, service marks and logos are property of their respective owners.

Re: SCX24 Shock upgrade??? Ya, just got mine too and notice thats about the worzt part of it. Haven't even got mine yet and don't wanna upgrade stuf Carisma Msa-1e oily shocks. Hot racing micro shocks. RC4WD 40mm shocks. This is what I did though. Stock up front with some o rings above the spring for more preload. And losi micro shocks in the rear at an angle with a pen spring and still has some travel plus I get massive articulation.

But I like how it drives. Sent from your iPhone. It's a great little truck The shocks aren't bad compared to others at this scale. Moving weight up front removed a surprising amount of bounciness in my case. Next is stiffer rear springs and some O ring lube. I agree. Stock are nice. Add some weight or preload and they actually work great.

I found the losi micro shocks are awesome!Any room at home can also become the setting for exciting feats and contests. We've also included extra suspension links for adjusting your wheelbase length.
