I'll take a couple better pics tonight to show the clearance from the tranny, but everything looked good.

Lots of room with this skid plate:

Awesome build dude... I am so looking forward to (re)starting on my build too - too much family to visit for the past month... I will be keeping a close eye on your thread.

I'll say it again - awesome build, enjoy!
Everything is in a state of Savage Flux, including the status quo... :)

[quote="LLkoolskillet";p="858373"]dude those acer bearings are cheap compared to the boca and avid kits for ceramic[/quote]

A little off topic but does anyone know the price of the avid kit and the abec rating? The boca kit I was looking at was abec 7 and around $280 I think.
How much was the acer kit? What abec?
I remember abec being very important in my skateboarding days. Abec 3 was the lowest the skate shop sold. The difference between abec 3 and abec 5 was huge. Abec 7 was crazy and would roll way better than abec 5.
I believe the stock savage bearings are considered abec 1. I waould think better bearings would mean less resistance and allow higher speeds.
Anyone know how aftermarket bearings would compare to soaking stockers in acer oil or something?

I know the avid ceramics are over $100 for the kit and the boca down here are $140. I did not know about this abec rating, time to educate myself now. Right now the acer bearings are $80 shipped for the XL and that's a good deal for ceramics. There are a few tricks left up my sleeve that going this route could net me more mph. But idk still hard to settle on the price

I guess I was a little off on the price. These are the highest abec rating I could find. They are almost $400 :cry:

Added links to parts so far.

Ran into my first snag last night, I ordered the Innovative R/C LST shock mounting kit, but found out that I ordered the wrong one.

With 30wt shock oil i found it to be about as stiff as using 8 Hpi big bore shocks, so i drilled out all the piston holes a couple sizes bigger instead of going back for lighter oil. So far i got a lot better response from them but won't really know till the snow disappears.

That's great info for when the rest of my shock parts come, I only want to put em together once!

So far today I have the CEN tank mounted and made the steering linkage:

The pick-up is at the front of the tank, so I tilted the tank forward.  Also, the seam had to line up with the frame to satisfy my OCD:

Now I have to make a bracket to mount my throttle servo, I have some carbon fiber laying around that will work just fine
