    So having spent far to much time over the last few years making portals fit tiny trucks that shouldn’t of had them, this week I bought a tiny truck with portals as standard and then promptly removed them 🤣

    So here is the almost complete Non-Portal Axial Capra. I went for SSD Racing Diamond Pro Axle casings from RC Bitz Ltd along with SSD C-hubs and Knuckles. All the stock links work (I just had to slightly lengthen the uppers both front and back. Made a new on axle servo mount, and used a stock SCX10-II drag link with a random steering link. Holmes 13T 5 Slot Crawl Master with a Hobbywing 1080 esc and a Power HD 20Kg servo.

    Still need to put the correct wheels and tires on it and a smaller pinion as it has a touch to much wheel speed at the moment. I also want to add a couple of limit straps as the axles have way to much down travel at the moment.

    Flexes pretty well though.

    The way this drives reminds me of my old AX-10 comp crawler especially with the dig. Should make a fun class 3 rig though.

    More as it happens.

    It’s fine, normal service will resume in the very near future. As the axles from this are destined for the Black Mog.

    I can’t get over how small these are but are class 3.
