Default Phat Bodies Chunk Build

Hello all,

This is an old one I have always wanted to build, here are a few pics of what I have. I will also need some help to finish it off.


Have:
x6 gearbox and phatbodies motor mount
EMB shocks
TC5 rear control arms
Schumacher KF2 C hubs, hub carrier, and axle
CVD's but unsure of what stub to get, I ordered a TC3 stub, but I think it should have been B4?

What else do I need?
What wing mounts do you use?
What are these front arms from?
What are the rear hingepin holders? They look custom, and do I need custom rear pins for the TC5 arms? The B4 pins do not fit.
How do you mount the gearbox? I haven't seen pictures of that spot.

On order is the gearbox parts, its hard to find one so I might as well buy the parts individually for the price id pay for a used one.

Thanks in advance for any help. I love these minis as they are so much fun to drive and look forward to finishing off this kit.

I have been making some progress. Having some problems getting the rear diff mounted properly and also trying to sort the camber links from hitting the inside of the front wheels on turn.

Does anyone know what wing mounts are used? Also what are the rear hinge pin holders from? And the front A modified a arms?

Mostly just need electronics for it.

Not sure if this will work, but google drive doc shows the build thread from the old UKMicro forum which has most of the pics still intact:

Thank you so much, that is exactly what I needed!!! If you have any other links that would be awesome.

I didn’t see in there what the rear hinge pin mounts are from.

When I attempt to turn the wheel, its hitting on the camber link.

Thanks so much, I will post some updates to this build in a few days. I am really excited to finish it. It was one of the coolest cars I have always wanted to build.

Making some progress. I have had trouble finding B4 parts for it as they are discontinued or very expensive for used. I have sourced a AVID triad clutch for it as you can see here.



Here you can see that I have the racers edge hubs. However I had to special order the larger outside bearing. They are hard to find, but some are on the way from fullforcerc.com

Untitled

There is also a space between the hex and the hub. There is a spacer that is NLA that I need to source. I was hoping the HEX adapter would have taken into account for this spacer but I guess not. Does anyone have any ideas?

Any ideas for wing mounts? The TRF wing mounts are impossible to find. If someone has some they are willing to part with please let me know.

I got them off Ebay listed as B4/T4 axles part number ASC9598. The original package said b4/t4.

the blue shafts are from a TC3.

So they're b4 axles, are the hubs b4 ones?
Which rear hexes have you got?
That gap doesn't exist on a b4...
The correct rear hex for a b4 is AS9890

The hubs are made to fit the B4/T4 and B44 vehicles. Its the same issue with the regular plastic hubs.

I just checked what I purchased and turns out I got this one "Associated 9893 Aluminum Clamping Wheel Hex 12mm Front SC10"

Looks like I overlooked that. I will search your part number and hopefully I can find it. Thanks for that.

Nice to see a fresh Chunk build 😊

Rear hangers are GT2.
You will need 20mm wide wheels for the front to clear the castor blocks.

The rear wishbones that you have on it in the first pictures are the Carisma GT14B front wishbones and were the preferred option for the racers.

It is finally starting to come together.

I now have the correct rear hexes and they fit perfectly. I had to file the rear arms a bit to fit the Racers Edge rear hubs, and also drill out the rear wheel hole size to match the axle diameter. Just a bit more fitting with the gearbox and some playing around with the rear ball cups to make the camber adjustment in the right range and she will be complete.

I finally found the TRF rear wing mounts, I had to put in a saved search on ebay to find them.

This is what I chose for my running gear. The BL motor I think is same spec as the LC racing motor, so I think it might be a good choice? Any battery recommendations? I see some people used the hardcase IP batteries, however they are hard to find. I might use the ones from my RC18B.

Once I make a bit more progress, I will get some better photos

So I just mocked it up for a quick pic. Just a few more final touches to it to make it perfect. So far it looks pretty good. Just need some rear axle nuts which should be here this weekend.
