    While waiting for my Hamberger, I tried with a Capra trans and 1400kv revolver. The capra trans was geared waay to high, and added to much weight.
    Driveshafts are what I had laying around until SDI shafts are back in stock.

    Comparison to Capra trans with 540 revolver, very light! 50 grams for the trans, and 130 grams for the Puller 400.

    I struggled (and still do to some degree) with massive torque twist on my intial setup. This is with big 850mah battery in front, capra trans and no sway bar. soft spring front, medium rear.

      Ordered some smaller 450mah batteries, and need to solder on XT30 connector and come up with some clever hold-down of the battery Servo mount is still a test print

          Good looking rig!
          Congratulations!

          Curious about that rear swaybar and how you will like it.
          Was that front servo and electronics tray made on a home printer?

            Thank you!
            I have a lot to learn both on setting up a comp crawler, and driving it on course, but can't wait for the season to start

            I feel like it is a bit to stiff as this, maybe I will try the Dlux universal swaybar later.
            Yes, its printed as a test with low infill and high speed on my Ender 3 Pro
