Ordered a 7075rc servo saver and servo mount. Don't really need the servo mount but just in the case I ever go to a hitech 5755/65 I've got it.

I have some redcat anodized parts i think I may strip to match the other raw aluminum parts. Once I get it together ill pull it apart and do a clear coat on all the parts and swap in my stainless screws. It's not much of a redcat now. Have enough parts to prob build the stock one again.

Yeah isn't that funny!

Looking good!

Wish 7075rc would do a dual servo arm setup.

He also has lay-shaft mounts in stock. ordered one of those too. I pretty much have any part he makes for the XT. Few things to keep in mind is the screw holes for the sway-bar mounts are only drilled about the 3/4 the length of the screw. To fix that I put a could washers on the screws to get them to hold the sway bar brackets snug. You will also not be able to mount your front bumper as it is originally secured between the front dif and the chassis.

I should be able to have it all back together by this weekend. I still need to order a new receiver and transmitter. Debating between 4PLS or 4PV with a R304SB.

Please advise if you have any problems with the DGI turnbuckles not clearing the aluminum 7075rc dif. covers. I read somewhere that they will not clear. I was told the DGI turnbuckle end that mounts to the steering saver will not clear the edge of the 7075rc dif. cover.
I would also like to know what steering servo you are using. I have the 7075rc servo saver upgrade on my gas XB and love it. I tried to use several 1/5 scale servo's with negative results. The only way I was able to get it to work was to use the 7075 servo mount and a Hitech 5765 servo.

I forgot to mention that...it does hit very slightly. I will be taking a lil material off the heim joint with desk grinder. Not sure it matters as it looks like its prett close to full lock. Keep in mind I'm also using a 7075rc chassis so my clearance might be different then a stock chassis. I know when I added the top brace it pushed out the differential 1/16th of a inch from the tie bar which was rubbing on the diff with out it.

Ill add a pic when I get to my PC.

I think they are 180x70 king motors for a losi 5. the outside bead locks i have to order separately as i wanted the aluminum look which at the time wasn't available. I did have to drill out the center hub a hair larger for the larger diameter hub. Been so long I do not remember where I got them from. I am thinking either large scale rc or daves. the bead lock i think from ebay.

I just did a search on amazon and found the same ones here:
https://www.amazon.com/King-Motor-Wheels-Rovan-Truck/dp/B017Y70YXE/ref=sr_1_2?keywords=King+Motor+X2+Wheels&qid=1568371938&s=toys-and-games&sr=1-2

beadlock: https://www.amazon.com/Motor-Aluminum-Outer-Beadlocks-silver/dp/B00GTXU3HC/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=King+Motor+beadlock&qid=1568372048&s=toys-and-games&sr=1-3

I see they have the inner now. I might order it. since im OCD about things.
