2 Buggy, now complete and all coming together with perfection it’s time to start mounting both sections to the main chassis so on. It is with kit bag j, so time to install everything to the main chassis. Three millimeter thick machined aluminum for lighter weight, yet high strength, pre hold with cavities built in for mounting various parts and electronics, further down for a lower centre of gravity providing higher stability when racing around corners. As for kit bag, j, c'est, pretty standard stuff, the center drive shafts with their typical techno high quality and strength the front and rear clips, as well as the center diff brace time to get everything in place. We’Ll begin with the front end assembly and loosening the two screws that secure the a block into position just enough, so that the block still holds the arms in place but to provide enough clearance. Since the a block will key into the main chassis, lower the front assembly onto the chassis and secure into place from the bottom, with two eight millimeter flat head screws up front and two 10 millimeter flat head screws just beneath and now we can tighten up the Two screws we loosened on the a block keying it into the chassis and keeping everything securely in place before covering with the front bumper mount and securing into place with two six millimeter button head screws going into metal here so remember to add some thread lock with That in place, we’ll move to the center of the chassis and install a small side guard using a single 10 millimeter flat head screw from the bottom, as well as the center chassis brace in this orientation.
Using another. Deux 10 millimeter flat head screws again from the bottom, just so that they’re, nice and snug you don’t want to be stripping any threads in the plastic here onto our metal motor mount next. This is positioned next to the small guard we just installed and secured from the bottom, using two 10 millimeter flathead screws around the center of the chassis and a single eight millimeter flat head screw towards the side, all with thread lock. Bien sûr. Now we move on to our center diff mount, which is positioned next to the motor mount just installed and held in place with another two ten millimeter flat head screws from the bottom, ensuring the ridge is on the outside. Enfin, we can get the center differential built in the very first kit bag into place, insert a bearing onto either side and then insert a diff mount over both before dropping into position onto the center. Diff mounts remember to insert the center drive shaft into the front. Diff cup and into the center, as it goes down into place with that cover the center differential and secure each corner in place with four eight millimeter button head screws. The rear two can go straight in so that they’re, nice and snug. While the front two are threaded into the metal motor mount so apply some thread lock to these front and center now done and we’re ready to bolt on our rear assembly. We have a chassis brace to install first.
ainsi, to get this in place, we have some small pieces to insert into the body mount we installed earlier with the hole at the top being the stock position, and next we can feed a 20 millimeter button head screw through before feeding through the brace and securing With a flanged log nut, we want everything securely in place, but try not to tighten down too much just yet. Place, we’ll get this installed onto the chassis, then tighten up once in position. So with that said, the entire rear assembly can now sit onto the rear. End of the chassis remember to feed through the short center drive shaft before flipping the buggy over installing six 10 millimeter flat head screws. Four of these go into the rear assembly itself, securing the bulkhead directly to the chassis. While the remaining two secure, the chassis brace. We left loosely connected to the bulkhead, providing some give to secure them to the chassis. The two screw holes just behind are for an optional, shorter brace before flipping back over and tightening up the chassis brace screw into its lock nut the rest of the way and with that kit, bag j is now complete and the buggy is really taking shape front And rear bolted on with the center differential in place and everything should turn nice and freely so double check the steering to make sure it’s super free and ensure there’s no binding down the entire chassis whatsoever. Typical techno, high quality hair.
All parts have come together with perfection, not a millimeter out, providing a really enjoyable and satisfying build with that said, it’s time to build and mount our shocks into their new positions in the next kit bag.
