RC10 B1 Mid Motor Laydown Buggy

Post by Frankentruck »

Not quite ready to kickoff this project yet, but getting closer. This B stamp chassis has some issues so it's the right participant for this project since there will be a little chassis trimming needing to be done.

I think this graphite chassis is destined to become a structural donor for this build. It has several issues, one which is reasonably obvious.

I'll be interested to follow along.

Not sure if this is any help but it worked for me...

At one point I made a thin CF spacer/adapter to mount a new style trans to a 6 gear chassis.
With this adapter no additional holes needed to be drilled.

Second pic shows a B6 style trans on my graphite Houge RC10. I really did not want to drill this chassis.

Interesting! I was planning to pocket this graphite chassis with a template anf my Dremel like I did for my Frankenbuggy build.
