Yay! We finished building the roller chassis of my Axial Wraith:
I called it “roller” because I learned that that is a term being used in the RC community for a chassis that has been completely assembled but does not have any form of power to make it move.
In my case, I still have to put in an electric motor as well as an electronic speed controller.
The electronic speed controller (ESC) controls the motor’s operation to go forward or reverse.
I also need to put in a radio receiver as well. That allows the owner of the rig to control the truck remotely via a hand-held controller.
There is also the matter of painting the Lexan body panels that will cover the bare-naked roll cage of the truck. Weather has been very cold nowadays in Airdrie. Spray painting outdoors is ill-adviced because of it; my Tamiya paint cans specify not to do any painting on weather conditions that are under 10ºC.
More to come; until the next time, have a nice day!
