What is going on you guys john barcelos here today, we’re back in the shop, and we have our traxxas trx6 here and today we are in for a uh quite surprising, mod, and this is the uh protective plate, as it’s mostly called. I noticed chassis protection kit and these are series of plates they’re, obviously made of metal it’s, pretty yeah it’s sustainably thick it’s it’s good. I mean it’s it’s, Pas mal, really and uh. These go underneath the chassis and they stick with stuff, obviously in the underneath, and they protect it from scratches. And you see what i mean, this is a barely used one, but you got scratches here the front plate and the dips you get. You know the minor scratches on the underside of the diff. You know all this stuff protects the uh, the undercarriage of the rigs. So a while back ago i showed you my trx4 uh protection kit, now it’s time for dtrx 6, which yeah surprisingly uh something arrived because yep uh frequent viewers of the channel guys. You know that uh i haven’t been making videos for quite a while, mais oui, c’est, because i haven’t been getting stuff, so it doesn’t make sense to you know, make videos that you guys don’t like so i made a diy video, so you guys, you know you Love this stuff, so yeah hope you like this video guys and as always like the video share it subscribe, alors nous allons entrer dedans.
d'accord, Gars, i went ahead and flipped the rig upside down and i just want to explain uh what these components are. ainsi, Tout d'abord, the very major part of these is this plate, which obviously replaces this plastic one, because these on the traxxas trx6 might look like they’re metal, but they’re actually plastic. So you know you have to unbolt this and you know obviously get it out and you replace it with this, which looks better and you know it’s gon na serve better than this one, and you have that these three little pieces these go on the diff. So your divs are protected, got three divs because it’s a six by six. Obviously you have this metal plate, which this goes on the transmission underneath, like that and last but not least, you have this back plate, which is strange because this is has a matte finish, and this is uh gloss but i’m, not gon na mess. With that, you know it’s better than these plastics, and this goes on the back and this by the way sticks with four little screws and these screws i don’t have fake in because these, like are very, tout petit, so i’m gon na find some entry screws with Nuts and i’m gon na enlarge the holes. You know you will get to that in the video, but let’s get to the easy stuff. Première, d'accord, guys so with most of these m3 screws, you’re gon na need a two millimeter hex tool.
Enfin, mine arrived yeah. Je suis. I’M surprised, but you have to loosen four screws, un deux, three and four: you remove this plate and you replace it so let’s get to it with all the screws removed. You can remove the stuck plastic piece. We have to get rid of that. Get the new metal piece put it in place, make sure the bolt holes line up let’s thread this thing in Music, d'accord, Gars. So next we’re going to install the front a diff mount protector. You have these two lock long screws on the housing which are right here and right here, you’re going to have to unscrew those, so you can get the thing on and they tighten in between these like two grooves and the plate. Comme vous pouvez le voir – et vous savez, you’ll get you’ll get you. You understand this if you you’re installing this stuff, so i untightened about a quarter of the way out the second screw and you just have to get it underneath the head of that put it where this is supposed to go, get the other screw and thread them In okay guys, so next is the center transmission protector mount plate and uh. This mounts in with two side screws right here right here, and this mounts like this obviously and it’s tricky to see but there’s a screw right behind this exhaust that the trx 6 comes with messing up my shop and i believe you’re going to have to unscrew The exhaust, so you can get access to those screws, because these exhaust mufflers are just in the way, okay guys so to remove these mufflers first, you have to unscrew there’s a screw right behind the wheel.
Here it is this screw which holds in there’s a wire holder on the other side. I will flip it and show it to you. You have to unscrew this screw and if you flip the rig, there is a little screw right here, which just holds in the the very outside part of the muffler. So first we have to unscrew this, and then we have to unscrew that mount from the from the chassis i’m gon na go ahead and do that behind camera. d'accord, guys so to remove the exhaust. You have one screw right here and you have one screw right here behind the wheel, but this is replaced by a zip tie, because i had to delete the wire holder right here when i did. My v8 swap go check that out right here. If you haven’t seen my video and you have to unscrew this screw and the screw, so you can get the exhaust mufflers off, so you can get access to those bolts and also you have a screw right here with the exhaust mufflers removed. You have to remove these screws, which i told you about which are these right here, one here and one on the opposite side right here. You have to loosen these position the plate and just tighten them – and you know this is this stuff is easy, Gars, Musique. After installing the plate, guys reinstall your mufflers again and then we move on to the next step: Musique, d'accord, guys so next procedure, i’m going to be doing the rear diff covers the protection, is going in this orientation, as you can see i’m going to do one Two and then i’ll show you the last part of our job it’s this rear protection plate, but first let’s get into these Music.
d'accord, guys with with these two last diff protection plates installed, we have the last one going to be the challenging one, and this we have to remove this plastic piece. This is plastic as well, just like the front one and i’m going to have to see where the bolts are which hold this in. You flip the rig, and it has chassis mounted bolts which are right here. Comme vous pouvez le voir, you have three screws on either side which you want to have to remove to get this plastic piece out Music. Now you can slide out the assembly just like this guys, and you have the part right here. Okay guys, so next is the last part, and it is the part where we get to position this and stick it obviously on. ainsi. The first step is to obviously locate it where it is flush with the plastic piece and you’re going to have to drill out these four holes right here that you see in the plate, and i found some m3 screws with a nut, and that is what i’m Going to be using instead of the the ones didn’t ones that the chassis protection kit comes with, so you know i feel better about you know my my work here. I also advise you use these little g clamps. So when you drill out the hose, you know it doesn’t move around because you can get offset holes in the plastic and you know you will screw the job up.
Okay guys. So finally, i got my screws in drilled in the plate and the plastic piece and got this. This thing is going serious man, you got entry screws with lock nuts. This thing is not coming loose. Yep let’s get this thing installed: i’m gon na go ahead and finish up the video for you, okay guys. So here she is she’s. All done so remember. We installed the front replacement a for the plastic piece. Diff covers right here, chassis protection, trousse, and this is the the middle part. This is a pretty important piece and also the back part, which i dedicated a lot of work in because yeah i want stuff to be serious on my rig yeah. Thank you guys for watching, and i hope you like this guys so for this tutorial and review of this product i’d like to say that it is beneficial to the crawler. I think it protects it a lot and uh sorry. This thing took a long time officer. The ship guys this thing has been other for, comme je pense, almost three months now or more it’s been a long time yeah. But you know just order stuff, and i hope hope that it comes all in one piece and comes, but anyway guys it’s here and for my rating, Je pense que c’est, i think it’s pretty good guys. The fit men did good uh nothing. I didn’t battle nothing to fit and i think it was pretty good guys and uh.
I heard positive feedback, so i can’t tell you that it’s not this is not good. You know if a thing is not good guys. I say that it’s not good, but i think this gets a 10 hors de 10. it’s good by the way i wanted to take the time to thank all of you guys for almost 100 subs thanks for watching and see you in the next one guys.
