Been working on this chassis for while now. The original chassis was designed and fabricated by Chase Daugherty. I decided to run a 10.2 Brazin skid to allow for a few more transmission options.

Slowly making progress. Added upper link mounts plus a panhard mount for the front. Going to be running Treal 10.3 portals with a CMS. Gotta figure out the servo mount still.

Depending on how much room I have, I may change to a fmm with an OD t case. I'm really wanting this to be a good single seater for an elite size wrestler. Macho Man Randy Savage is my lead fabricator and it's finally time he has his own rig šŸ¤£

the lines are definitely what drew me to this chassis. I stumbled across it on facebook. He was planning on making more last i checked, but they were designed for a capra skid. I wanted to buy one and learn from it before building my own. So far i have learned a lot and have fallen back in love with building. I built a comp rig for the first time this spring and really enjoyed it and decided to start even more bare bones. I should have parts delivered today, planning on finalizing all brackets and adding some attachment points for a body. then its off to powdercoat!

Finally think everything is attached. Added a servo mount from Scale Metal Supplies. All of the link brackets are done, I am going to try and trim some more weight out where I can. The chassis is well built, but stronger than what it needs to be. I might cut more of the skid mount out because it was all filled with weld and it doesn't need all of it for support.

Going to clean and prep the chassis for paint and hopefully get the axles assembled this week!

Still a ways to go, and definitely some trimming and paint touch up lol, but it's getting there! Links all mounted and everything eyeball aligned! Going to begin the search for a powerplant for this heavy mofo.
