Brought the Circuit back from a 2 month(?) hibernation due to bad ebay ESC & made a bumper extender out of 1/8" kydex.
I recently bought a used Team C T8T+e, and got a butt-ton of spare/extra prts with it. Some of which were 3.5mm Bullets, (2) extra 'Orange' receivers to go with the DX3R, a HW Xerun 80A esc in perfect working order...
So I created a new profile and bound the receiver, re-installed an old 3600kv Hobbypower motor I had lying about and installed/set/adjusted the HW.
The T8T also came with (2) bodies....the original Nitro with multiple holes for the Head/exhaust/fuel filler & Monster Energy paint scheme and a T8TE body. So for fun I threw on the body and the front holes lined up perfectly!! BTW the front mounts are all the way up( and I have an AMP rear mount, i'll be extending it upward again but with aluminum pins to meet the T8T body) Overall it looks pretty good. I trimmed about 1/4" off the bottom front & sides. The rear wheelwell sat a bit too far back contacting the rear shocks. I trimmes that about 1/2" and curved it into the well. I trimmed the protruding part of the body flush to where the 'bed' ends. I'll trim a bit more after I turn the last 1-2" of the bed into a spolier.
The body is 1/8-scale-truggy-thick so I have no qualms about beating the snot out of it. I already ran a pack today in the parking lot, flew under some cars, jumped, cartwheeled & barrel-rolled multiple times, no damage. I'll snap some pics in a few....
Here they are:
It does look a bit thick in the middle, but after mounting is complete i'm gonna hit it with a heat gun to skinny it up a bit.
