Default Fireblade Truck

Can anyone tell me if the necessary long suspension arms and drive shafts are available to make a Schumacher Fireblade into a truck?

Hi Clive,

I have a Storm 2000 here. The Storm 2000 based on the Cougar 2000 buggy shared the same suspension set up, hubs and Gearbox. The main differences were it had a wider chassis and bulkhead along with long shocks front and rear and extensions for the driveshafts. A Fireblade truck was never made in the day.

Cheers Kev.


Thanks for the info.



I have a Fireblade and wondered if I could make use of it as a truck.


So, are you saying that the Storm parts would fit the Fireblade?

I've had a rumage about in the BRCA site and, as is usually the case, found nothing to tell me what the defining dimensions of a 1/10 Stadium Truck might be.


So can I make the suspension arms any length that takes my fancy and then extend the drive shafts to match?


EDIT:

Have found that the Spectrum is 328mm wide, PR Truck is 325mm and the Losi is 330mm wide.


Guess something around 330mm should do it. And the wheels are standard 2.2 inch with 12mm hex drive?
