CC-02 Monster truck conversion??

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Looking for some advice here - would the CC-02 make a decent monster truck? It has the same basic design (solid axle, frame rail) as the Axial scx10, which a lot of people converted to monster trucks, so I'm wondering if the CC-02 can be a *light* monster truck (i.e. not a true clod-sized monster with huge 2.6 wheels & tires etc, but perhaps something more like a 2.2 size.)

Any thoughts? 

Thanks!

Axle width may be the biggest stumbling block. Getting enough steering lock with some suitably giant tyres. Other than that I can't see why not.

4 wheel steering is a possibility too, can't be to hard to graft on another front axle.

Its the first thing I wondered when I saw the chassis unveiled. I planned on sitting back and seeing what comes of it as it makes its way into hobbyist' hands.

You’d have to  do something different with the Battery to make 4WS, you might also have to limit the steering a bit too fit for clearance. 
 

I’ve only just started to get my body fitted. Fitting the Land Rover body has been a bit of a mission, with the wheelbase being so much shorter.

Sure it could.  Would problably make a decent 2.2 monster, but I wouldnt try running Clod tires.  I've built quite a few SCX10 2.2 monster trucks and they're a blast.  Just get the gearing right and you're good to go, the stock drivetrain should hold up fine if you dont go crazy with the power.

That's just a pointless idea. It's not suitable at all.

I think you can build something like this. CC02 axles are about 1cm wider than Trex 44's in the photos but dimensions are close. You might need wheel wideners to prevent front tires rubbing suspension links. You an also buy a Juggernaut plastic frame and mount all CC02 drive train on it and build a more realistic looking monster truck.

Anyone know if the Tamiya portal axles will work with the CC-02?

Don't think so. At least not on the rear axle, it doesn't have separate uprights. It's the same setup as a cc01 plain axles with a hex stuffed on the end.

No they won’t ever work with it.

I hadn't even looked at them when I asked. I was thinking about extra body clearance. Oh well. :)

You might be able to bodgy them on, but they certainly won’t just bolt on. The CC02 is very much a new design all over.
