Default Big Joe's MRC Comp Rig v2

Just wanted to share my updated 1.9 comp rig for HRCC.

Losi Bronko Body
Losi MRC axles w/ Losi steel lockers
Losi Trans w/ Losi steel locker
Losi Front Aluminum Cs, Knuckles and CVDs
Losi Rear Aluminum lockouts
Losi MRC shocks w/ 30w oil and 3/8" fuel tubing spacers
Hitec HS-645MG
Losi stock MRC motor, Mamba 25 ESC, 2s Lipo
Lost Aluminum Bead Locks w/ weights
DNA 1.9 Slingshot Chassis kit

8.5" Wheel Base
7.75" Track Width
2.5" belly clearance with Losi Rock Bashers
2.8" belly clearance with Proline Flat Irons

Future mods will be a Holmes Hobbies TorqueMaster Mini and make a rear axle
truss to bridge the aluminum lockouts in hopes to minimize bending the solid
axles.

A few photos of JoeWorks MRC v2.. Thanks for looking..

Thanks Sprint..

As far as the Mini SS, performance wise I didn't have a chance to run it yet so no opinion there. But as a kit, I have a few small (in my opinion is small) issues when building it as follows.

1. My kit didn’t come with any instructions and if it wasn’t for other builds on this site, someone may have problems not knowing what goes where. I couldn’t even find any info on there web site also. But for some luck, I figured it out. I think.
2. My kit in my opinion was not complete due to having to the ball ends for upper links were not included and there where no indications on there web site or its packaging. I used ball ends from spare axial rod ends.
3. The two servo and upper link plate needed some modifications in order for it to work on my build. First I had to re-drill all the screw holes one size bigger in order for the MRC factory screws to fit and to countersink the three mounting holes so the factory screws can be used properly. I also had to drill and tap the upper link mounting holes to accommodate the axial rod ends.

Other then my little issues, it all went together well.

Shoots..

On to v3.. Went back to the Losi Rock Bashers and did the SicksAreR steering mod without cutting the steering knukles using Dubro 2mm rod ends and 4-40 threaded rod and aluminum tubing.. Hope to see an improvement at this weekends GTG.




I'm still thinking of swaping out the Mamba 25 and putting back the factory ESC.. The Mamba 25's drag brake wasn't holding during her maiden run..

Shoots..
