    Losi MRC Digger Build, Feb 8, 2013
  1. jaloos

    Axle plates are made.
    Front one is made to support a full size servo rather than the mini servo.
    Rear supports holding the Gens Ace 2S 800mah LiPo.

    The diffs are the Losi Front/Rear Metal Diff Gear & Housing Set #LOSB0941 and from what I can tell are about the rarest thing on the planet at the moment. Had a really hard time trying to get these. No one had them in stock and out of the vendors that said they did they were all wrong. Was lucky to find a set.


    The lockers are the Hot Racing Alum. diff posi lock spool kit #MRC25X08. They remove all the plastic from the diff.

    The Hot Racing Black Steering Drag Link Set Alum. #MRC49L01


    And the GPM Alum. Upper Arms #RC055


    Will be showing up sometime next week.

    As they sit now waiting on the additional parts.



    Plans are to make some new plates with 4 link mounts sometime in the future.

    I am in the process of making a front servo plate for a full size servo. More than likely will be a cheapo Tower-Pro high torque for the time being.
    It will have a small 3 amp BEC to power the servo only. In the event the servo blows or shorts it will have the 5 dollar BEC to destry and nothing else.

    Future plans are for a Tekin FXR and a mod 380 can motor or perhaps a 1/18 brushless system.
