  • High Altitude Shepard 2.2 comp rig

    Time for a build thread. This is the second Shepard I've built, I sold my first one at the beginning of the year after I bought a new house. Current specs are stock axles, links and 4wd locked capra trans. Futaba S9177 servo, HH BRXL and a Team Br00d 30t brushed motor for the time being.

    Proline IBEX 2.2 tires with CI 5.5 dual stage foams wrapped around High Altitude P35 carbon wheels. The fronts are on 475 SLW hubs to clear the brass knuckle weights and the rears are 225 hubs with the face tucked back for a deep dish look.

    Currently its sitting at 4lbs 3oz RTR with no added weight, should be around 4lb 14oz with knuckle weights and a painted body. Going to throw some paint at it and get it wired up this week so I can get it out on the rocks this weekend. Its been too long since i've had a super capable 2.2 shafty rig to play with.

      How is it working with the stock gearbox?

      Is it geared low enough?
