Default My Nacho Racing JPC1 CHASSIS

I cut the skid plate out of delrin and used the handy router table to cut the lip


Got it mocked up and everything fit perfect





Ill get somemore pics up after the first test run I have the GC set a little high but the center of gravity is still pretty low

I got everything mounted and took it for a test spin. Even running the long big bore shocks and loads of ground clearance this thing has an extremely low center of gravity. Its day and night from the modified axial chassis I was running. I know thats not saying much but I cant wait to get this thing out on the rocks and test her out. Im going to cedar park tomorrow if anyone is down to go crawl.

Les, put some stand offs in between the shock mount locations... This will help out tons..

I can give you some black Delrin rod 5/16, Monday after work for this...

Here you go Jason. Got the chassis finished up with electronics and a test run on the Rock....

Recycling my last Grappler. This will keep Hadley JR happy. :mrgreen:


Ahem a little nudity.....




Ful length nudity


I had a Reign Widemouth that I was struggling a bit on geometry along with getting the CG lower and still having room. With The Nacho The only things taller than the battery is the top of the shock. Jason is still working out final details but look for pricing and availability soon. Going to get it on the rocks tomorrow if I can find some dry weather.....
