Project SiNiST3R BLACK BASHER XL Spec

Alright, so the Basher is about to be drivable. I may fire her up if the street dries up and there is no salt built up on the pavement. I have an OS30 going in, but I'm going to bring the head over to my anodizing shop to see if it can get the black dip along with the flywheel. A few more odds and ends still have to go in, but the truck will soon be drivable.

This is my off-road Bashing Machine

Looking really mean so far. Just one question, where did you get your cen diffs from? I have a set fitted in my X but am looking for another set for my 25 because my stock diffs are FUBAR!

Much Thanks  :twisted:  

I bought a used XL and 2 buckets of parts that made almost 2 more. Upon dis assembly (wow the trucks have come a long way) The Diff in the bulks turned out to be CEN7.7 diffs with some retarded spider gears and sick case. I really lucked out. Also got a 086, all alloy chassis (arms, towers, and some other bits off it are in the bucket of parts ;)

Joker these will work just as good as the cens http://www.hpieurope.com/piw.php?lang=en&partNo=102692
These are stronger than the sintered (bulletproof) diffs and so will last longer and give you according o hpi site a 14% increase in top speed.
Also are easy to come by at LHS or ebay.

Yeah, those are the machined BP diffs, plenty tough. The CEN have a similar ring & pinion, but beefier spiders.

If anybody has a tough bashing upgrade to suggest post up, I want to make the truck a shopping list for the right bash mods.

One area that may need to be addressed. Ive seen some use something to secure the 2 bumper braces together to keep them from spreading out. If there is a alloy brace Id be interested, I'm thinking of not I'll hook up a couple springs or something.

One way I have seen to secure the two bumper braces is to take a stock turnbuckle and cut it to size and on each end put a stock shock end.  You have to bore out the stock shock ends.  I saw this idea a few months ago on the TOTM contest.  He did his a little differently and you are welcome to look it up.  I think it was the best mod or home made mod contest.

I will post pictures of mine in a few minutes.

If you have the hpi sway bar kit, in it is upper a arm rod blocks. I guess what I'm trying to say is that these things screw into the bulkhead and prevent the rods from slipping out kinda like the Alza braces. I highly recommend them. I'll get you a pic tomorrow of what I'm talkin about

I got some of those already. SO they eliminate the need to secure the bumper braces? Nice, already got something cool and didn't even know it.

I just realized if you look at my KOOLAIDE build it shows them on the bulkheads. Without them I use a zip tie, if I didn't the pins fall out with repeaditive wheelies

I cant find who I got this from but like I said it was someone from this site.  I installed it a couple of weeks ago.  It feels real stout and doesnt cost that much.  I forgot to mention after I cut the turnbuckle I put some goop (glue) into the shock ends even though it is a tight fit.

That looks superb Bro. I will do that on the back end, and keep the stoppers I have in the front, might just add that up front too though, its very nice.

The front rod will pull out from the front slamming back onto the ground from a wheelie so yes keep them on the front. The rear with the brace will be good

FluxNZ came up with the idea of the tie rod ends on the bumper

Got some work in on it.

Engine is set up nd ready for install, but still needs to get the head turned black. The OS30 has a fres set of M-L Shoes and Ofna 1.1mm Gold Springs & 17t CB. I also got around to painting the body today and it looks good to me.

Bad pic cause I just got done, Ill load some better ones tomorrow.
