I finally got a chance to get wrenching on the Redcat Everest 10. Getting in there, it really feels like a solid built truck. A few things are iffy. Like the all Phillips head bolts, but for the most part it’s built good.
I got the new Duratrax Showdowns put on the stock bead locks and they look huge! And way softer than the stock ones.
Then I moved everything over to the integy cage.
While it looked great, and bolted right on, it seemed just too open for my tastes. So I put everything back on the original chassis.
Was the perfect time to swap out the solid diffs. This took literally 5 minutes per axle.
Got the body lowered a bit by moving the electronics around and re drilling mounting holes. Then finally got to take its first run.
Oh and I put in a 27t axial motor. Plenty of torque and speed for it. But wow.. Chassis twist. This needs to be fixed like next.
I got some ideas. A chassis mod to get those crazy angled shocks to stand up straight.
So far I like it. Can sure get up over stuff.
