PR Racing 2WD Stadium Truck

Hey RCers. First new kit for me in twenty years. Posting up this build adventure for all eternity seems like the thing to do.

Unboxing revealed four alpha bags, A-B-C and D for assembly sequence. Body comes clear. Rocco at RC Bombshells did his usual masterful body painting job.

"A bag" went without drama. Measured 26degree kick-up on the 7075 aluminum 3.0mm chassis plate. Steering servo is Futaba S9551 low-profile coreless. Rated 122oz/in at 6.0v. Did a quick hook up using a test receiver and alkaline battery pack to center the servo. Stayed with the PR supplied nylon "F" servo arm. Servo arm length on centers is 14mm (~ 9/16" for us old schoolers).

So far, so good. Cheers. 'AC'

PR build update

Done deal on 'Bag B'. Lots of fiddly bits to this build. Finding some heavy parts that should be light and some light parts that should be heavy. Some parts that aren't even there. But for now it gets built the "PR way".

Note: Straightaway grabbed a bag of RPM 8/32 nylon nuts. Drilled them out to adapt to the 5mm axles for wheel nuts. Kit comes with serrated wheel nuts, which I don't personally care for-somewhere in a bag yet to open.

Taking notes on what to change in the future. Changes later after completing an event or two to assess performance.

Bag "C" next in line for the coming week. Cheers and keep the shiny side up.
