Re: RC10 Factory Works C2 "Tuber" Build (Updated)

I've been smoothing the joints on the cage for awhile and it's time for a break. This morning I machine the aluminum pieces for the spare wheel to mount to the rear. They came out good. I rummaged in my wizzo box and came up with the top thump screw.

Pics as it stands. Time to think on some electronics...

Looks good! You should make those nose brace tubes go back and attach to the cage.

Thanks guys. :)

Mike, I still have some tube/rode left. I'll goof around and see what I come up with.

UPDATE

I've been at it for a couple of weeks, adding a few braces to make the cage more durable. After a "drop test", it needed it. :mrgreen:

A lot of filling to finish up but, it'll be very cool. 8)

Oops! Well, it's called a "roll cage" for a reason.
Anyway, a little extra bracing never hurts.

I got the drill and tap for 5-40 on Saturday, straight to it, no messing around. :mrgreen:

Awhile back, I got these "spinners" from eBay/DHAWK. Nice man, very nice but intended for the Classic front axle thread size so I 5-40'd them to use on the World's axles.

Alrighty now, the "Tuber" is pretty much done, with the exception of a rear wing. I need to think on that for awhile, gather some wing buttons and a wing, machine some cool parts for the attachment to the wire from the Factory Works wing things.

On to a few pics! 8)

I'm more than satisfied with the build. One thing I will say, filing on the cage joints was getting "old" at the end. :roll:

My thanks go out to Jeff/Factory Works for making the C2 "Tuber" happen!

Looks nice, Nomad. Yes, that wing will be tricky to mount but I have confidence you'll find a clever solution.
Well done!! :D
