Question 1/8 Crawler Build Help Needed

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Hey Everyone,

I am working on a Integy 1/8 Crawler which I bought incomplete from kijiji.

It's almost complete but I am having some trouble trying to figure out how to install my motors, as well as my ESC and tx.

Second issue is, the rear diff is missing the internal gear, so there is free wheel play. The front wheels have their internal gearing so the wheels spin in opposite directions.

Can I please get some guidance on how I can finish this project on a budget (I plan on upgrading as I go along, once I have a basic setup up and running.)

Any/all advice will be appreciated.

Please see pics attached for reference.

Re: 1/8 Crawler Build Help Needed

The motors mount on the axles, the oblong hole with the slots above and below it are where the shaft goes/ it screws in. You'll have to fabricate a base for your frame to hold your esc, rx, and battery. Depending on what gears are left in your rear diff you may be able to lock it (which you should do anyways) figuring out what axles are on the truck will help. You also seem to be missing 2 of your upper links, one in the rear one in the front so you will need a couple of those too.

I wouldn't bother trying to get any info out of integy, they seem content to just put their products out into the world without any explanation.
