Picked up this unused brushless upgraded bind and drive 1/18 Ruckus the other day.
A bit smaller than my WL Toys 144001 MT.

Glad I tore this open to check and see what route the po took for the motor pinion............... Good thing I was planning on sticking a Hot Racing 48p spur and Robinson Racing pinion on it.

Not sure if I want to keep these electronics in here, as 3900kv is a little lower than I would like, idk if I trust the no name esc and I only have 1 Flysky transmitter that is already in use.

To do list.
  • Fill diffs with oil.
  • Find aluminum shocks.
  • Hot Racing spur.
  • Hot Racing driveshafts.
  • Metal geared servo.
  • Make adjustable turnbuckles.
  • Try and find a way to change out all the phillips hardware for hex.
  • Figure out a cost effective way to beef up the diffs.

Also ditched the cheapo eBay esc and Surpass then stuck a Tenshock 1401 4850kv motor and a Hobbywing 10BL60 esc in there then tossed on some T-Bone Racing bumpers.

I still need to make driveshafts.

Love your build there. I've done the same till the driveshafts road block. I made spacers to the new diff cup wheel axle but fall out when hit hard. I just apoxy'd all old plastic diffs up till I return to modified axles

So far my Frankenshafts are holding up to the abuse.

Installed some turnbuckles from some WL Toys 1/18 car, had to do a little trimming of the front caster blocks to get the rod end to clear and I had to slightly mod the rear hubs to get the rod ends to even fit.
