    few pics of a project i started a while back and lost interest in, until i found mbn
    i never realised how wrong i had things until i started looking through all the build ups and info in here.

    new mods will be-
    billet steering rack
    independant rear end with viscus lsd
    new brake master setup

    any tips will be great as i'm only learning

    Oh brother.. ha ha..


    Welcome to the site Lowblo
    Very cool and neat little monster truck.
    Can you tell us how you built your diff and what parts you used to do it?

    Looks pretty fun and after you look through MBN for a couple hours, days or weeks.. sheesh a ton of info if you search around on here you will find a bunch of great ideas to add to your little truck to make it even better and more fun. Hopefully you will find some inspiration to make you finish it.

    Keep us updated on anymore work you do to it.
    Good Luck.

    thanks for the comments guys! don't know about the turbo busa motor, it wheelstands with the 110 thats in it now!
    i think the diff centre is out of a lancer, i meant to grab a gtir pulsar one but had already machined the housing before i realised the axles didn't fit nevermind.
    the disc is off a go kart, the sprocket was a bossed one from the local bearing supplies that i had to machine the centre out of.
    the ute(truck) in the background is a holden rodeo (isuzu pup) no body drop yet tho!
    thanks again for the comments

    got one set of arms made up and tacked in, seems to move ok,. travels 11 inches so far although i might have to limit it before that.
    any advice will be appreciated as i don't have a lot of experience with setting up suspension and steering etc..

    It appears to have positive camber through suspension travel - os is that wrong? If so, making the upper arm slightly shorter might help.
