Testing went well. Some of these upgrades need some dialing in. But launches straight. Mostly on the bar. Slipper clutch tuning is great for power delivery. Gearing at 19/56 and front set of shocks installed on rear for some travel limiting. Mamba x going in for some tuning options. Wheelie bar got installed and looking for a way to use tierods to adjust height in finer increments. #projectc2fabrication #c✌️fab #hikinōcustomrcs #hobbietat #sandyflemings #hobbycompanyhawaii #rpmproducts #esccage #noprepdrag

Well. I blame @cezar_justin for getting me into #noprepdragracing. The build started as a VXL @traxxasracing Bandit RTR. Replaced chassis with a Slash LCG chassis plate. Replaced front end suspension with tierods. Replaced gear case with RPM products to get a metal motor mount with more adjustment. Changed gears to 32p. RPM rear 2.2 wheels wrapped in @prolineracing slicks. I also locked the stock diff. Launches great. Nice and straight. Body is next on the list. #projectc2fabrication #c✌️fab #hobbietat #hobbycompanyhawaii #hikinōcustomrcs #noprep #rcdragracing #shortcourse #traxxas #vxl #bandit #slash2wd #lcg #aintcare #funashell #cheaperthanrealcars

#techtip When a 3mm setscrew doesn’t work with your setup, use a cap head m3x14mm screw. I measured the head and it is 5.40mm diameter. I know yokomo sells 4 and 5mm pins. But this was free.

Bomber getting a new modded @dinkyrc #bomberbox, @mytrickrc dragon light unit, new Traxxas Revo ends. Much needed maintenance after the last session out at Sandy Beach. Also bent a set of @vanquishproducts rear chromoly axles. To be fair, I was really hard on them. Sheared both rear hex pins. #projectc2fabrication #c✌️fab #vanquishproducts #prolineracing #cnccustomwheels #hikinōcustomrcs #scaleobsession #hobbietat #hobbycompanyhawaii #sandyflemings

Testing out stability and roll over point. This line got to see if I got the suspension travel on point and dampening setting right. Debating going thicker shock oil, as the rig is a little bouncy on descents. Drag brake could be a little stronger as it rolls down a hill a liiiiitle to fast. This @crawlerinnovations foam combo paired with MTR s are awesome!!!#crawlerinnovations #threewheelthursday #knightcustoms #rcnerds #class1 #prolineracing #yota #sr5 #scaleobsession #scalebuildersguild #esp #hawaiiscaleadventures #hawaiinei #oahu #babymaks #scalerfab #hikinōcustomrcs #sandyflemings #hobbietat #hobbycompanyhawaii #projectc2fabrication #c✌️fab #staytuned #moretocome

Saw this on @scale_obsession IG and thought I would give @pushrod_3d a holla. Fast shipping and great finish. Like the fact it’s smooth. Easy to paint.

Little maintenance on the @teamyokomo #yd2plus New drive cups on the viscous diff cause everytime I would lock brakes a loud click would happen. Noticed the drive cup slots were a little bigger than the pins in the axles. So updated solid axle cups went in. Available @hobbietat While apart got some aluminum shock towers from a fellow #rccrazy @jlowshopshop #yokomoyd2 #yokomo #hobbietat #sandyflemings #hobbycompanyhawaii #hikinōcustomrcs #hikinōjrifff #rccrazies #projectc2fabrication #c✌️fab

Lighting system courtesy of @mytrickrc #sq1 Custom setup with warm white 5mm headlights and 3mm amber. It is possible to run the @gearheadrc light bar off the lighting unit. I wired a switch inline to turn on and off the light bar as needed. Inside are @exclusive_rc racepack and navigation behind a @knightcustoms SR5 steering wheel. Also lit up with the @mytrickrc #sq1 This lighting unit is amazing and small. #staytuned #moretocome #scaleobsession #mytrickrc #scaler #scalernation #class1 #scx10ii #projectc2fabrication #c✌️fab #hikinōcustomrcs #hobbietat #hobbycompanyhawaii #sandyflemmingsfastelectrics #prolineracing #interior

Trying out magnetic body mounts on a crawler for the first time. This is the setup I used from #eagleracing Available @hobbietat Had to lathe down the rear posts to clear bed. Seems to be working so far. After some final parts come in for the body.

Got done installing the @knightcustoms roll bar and been procrastinating about the cooler. Finally after 3 attempts making the cover, I finally got it done. Sprayed a light coat of tamiya clear to give it a semi gloss finish. #projectc2fabrication #c✌️fab #scaleobsession #hobbietat #hobbycompanyhawaii #sandyflemmingsfastelectrics #hikinōcustomrcs #sr5 #prolineracing #scalerc #knightcustoms #igloocoolers

Spending a lot of time on the body. A few more pieces needed to complete the bed, then can start focusing on installing the fenderwells and working on chassis wiring. #knightcustoms #rcnerds #class1build #scalerc #gearheadrc #prolineracing #yota #sr5 #scaleobsession #hawaiiscaleadventures #hikinōcustomrcs #hobbietat #sandyflemmingsfastelectrics #hobbycompanyhawaii #rpphobby #esp #bedliner #scx10ii

Class 1 build coming along. Rough cut in the body for a @knightcustoms grill and more parts. Slowly but surely. @prolineracing PL-T interior cut to size. On the fence about running the @scalerfab front bumper. But most likely will. Fit and finish is awesome on the bumper. #projectc2fabrication #c✌️fab #hikinōcustomrcs #hobbietat #hobbycompanyhawaii #sandyflemmingsfastelectrics #scalerc #prolineracing #sr5 #class1 #axialracing #hawaiiscaleadventures #lovethehobby

Gonna be a first for me on a scale SCX10ii scaler class 1 build. Following SORRCA rules but with a local class rule of 80mm shocks for linked rigs. So I opted for @gmade.rc 80mm RSD shocks available @hobbietat I opted for the 2 hole piston and shock oil that comes with it. For now I will be using the provided springs which feel like green springs from a Honcho kit. #scaleobsession #gmaderc #scalernation #scalerc #class1 #somethingdifferent #projectc2fabrication #c✌️fab #hobbietat #hikinōcustomrcs #hobbycompanyhawaii #sandyflemmingsfastelectrics

Out here getting ready for the @hiki_no_custom_rcs #rccrawler #top10 #comp Did some maintenance and some changes. Lowered battery plate. Repositioned front shocks. Rebuilt the @dravtech comp shocks. Replaced #dluxfab knuckle bearings. Rebuilt and relived diff and trans. I think after this one, replace rod ends. Oh and @crawlerinnovations foams got replaced in the rear. #letthegoodvibesbegin #hikinōcustomrcs #alwaystesting #projectc2fabrication #c✌️fab #gmrc #dragqueen #g10 #hotracing #digunit #hobbietat #hobbycompanyhawaii #sandyflemmingsfastelectrics

Adding some bozu to this body. @srcsidewaysrc oil cooler and tow straps. Last on the list will be to order up a @mytrickrc lighting kit to finish it off. I like the SQ-1 lighting system.

Testing these small tires at a comp wasn’t a good idea. Although, these tires (wrangler MT/R) with ci closed cell rear and dual stage soft, gripped well. They lack the larger diameter that provides good ground clearance. Picking a good line and low center of gravity is a good combination to use these tires. #projectc2fabrication #alohasquadron #class1 #leafspringmafia #c✌️fab #trailfinder2 #tf2 #hikinōcustomrcs #hobbietat #hobbycompanyhawaii #sandyflemmingsfastelectrics

Well. Scale bolts in. Replaced some with hex head screws. Working on detail lines. #supergdrift #teamtetsujin #rawfew #hikinōcustomrcs #hobbietat #sandyflemmingsfastelectrics #hobbycompanyhawaii #projectc2fabrication #c✌️fab

I reckon if I ever did the @rocket.bunny.pandem #bosskit. This is what it would look like. Maybe a 69 Camaro RS grill with electric headlight covers. Can’t do it.

When you are looking for that extra step in scale. @pandora.rc.japan 3d headlight detail sheet. Comes with assorted shapes and sizes. #scaled #addedtouch #bosskit #s14 #rocketbunny #rcrwddrift #yd2 #hikinōcustomrcs #supergdrift #hobbietat #sandyflemmingsfastelectrics #hobbycompanyhawaii

Progress on the #rocketbunny #boss #s14 #almost done with the painting and rough work. Then onto smoothing edges and trimming grill openings cleaner. IDK what it is, but I like the look of #wrapupnext 3d light stickers. Way more detail than other brands. The texture adds that scale touch. #supergdrift #hikinōcustomrcs #hobbietat #hobbycompanyhawaii #sandyflemmingsfastelectrics #projectc2fabrication #c✌️fab

When you’re so close to the clouds you want to reach out and grab them. Or #rabbitisland at least. @green_mountain_rc #zfg chassis did great and some tuning needed on foams.

Trying out these #yokomo kpi #knuckles that I picked up a while back from @Hobbietat. Tried them outlast week. With no other adjustments.

@rc4wd window vent visors from the previous post. Sprayed 3 wet coats with Tamiya PS-31 smoke. Suggest cutting them out first them painting.

Back to this. Found even with radiusing, I was still getting cogging. I looked at dluxfab FBA axles for some inspiration and found I just needed to clearance the edge on one pair of ears. Taking apart a universal isn’t all that bad. Clamp the ear in a vise, hammer and punch the silver pin out and done. All apart. The key is a 45° “bevel” cut in the areas pictured. Testing to follow. #projectc2fabrication #c✌️fab #hikinōcustomrcs #hobbietat #sandyflemmingsfastelectrics #hobbycompanyhawaii #dremel #notscaredtotry #commit
