Finished Madbug

Recommended Posts

After a house move (never again), and bending the rear shock tower forwards in a crash, I made a few reinforcements and finished see. Still need to glue the tyres tho 😀.

It’s a DF02  with alloy upgrades, drive train is mostly metal out of the box, so a bit more robust. 1/8 rear shocks, I made an alloy plate for the rear shock tower and upgraded the u pin in the rear with 3.16mm piano wire. Both ideas from YouTube. Motor is brushless 5400kv, will have to see how drive train holds up.

Had time to test run in the garden today, need to glue the tyres still, garden isn’t long enough to open full throttle and discovered it winds the dog up 😀
