Well I figured I'd start to put some things together. Make sure everything was going to fit, and end up going to plan. Everything was going smooth.


I got to the above stage and went to put the RPM gear case on. Well it turns out there is no hole for the front screw in the RPM toe block as the stock gear box has no hole as they are molded into the gearbox them self. So I bolted the bottom LCG plate in place off set to locate where the holes needed to be in the chassis plate.

This was a quick and dirty way to make sure the holes where in the right spot.

Quick picture of the drilled holes.


Gear box mounted in finally

Oh the chassis will be black. I'm just mocking stuff up to make sure everything is fitting right. That chassis will be changed a lot before this project is finished.The shock tower will be replaced when the protrac kit shows up.


Thanks for all the nice post everyone

Interesting way of addressing the STRC-LCG-no-likey-detachable-toe-blocks issue... but... I see something of a problem. By nesting the front screws for the gearbox under the lowest STRC plate (instead of countersinking the STRC plate itself,) you basically have to disassemble the entire rear end-- including all of the bolts for the STRC kit-- just to change a toe block or remove the gearbox for servicing.

You might want to add those two holes to the STRC plate before final assembly.
