New project "Carbon Assassin"

Post by savage429 » Thu Feb 21, 2013 3:06 pm

I've wanted to build a carbon fiber savage for some time. I bought my first savage about 4 years ago and my lhs had a set of Vertigo tvp's. I found out the other day he still had them and they were marked down 50.00 so I couldn't resist anymore.

More details will be posted as I start the build I'm waiting on parts.

I did a lot of tear down and cleaning today. I have the aluminum ready to go to anodizer.
I trimmed the bulkheads so I could install Extreme carbon fiber braces.

Vorza diff mod is complete and they are shimmed and installed. I installed Boca ceramic bearings in the diffs it's nice having all the same size bearing in diffs. I'm waiting on my parts from the anodizer now.

Although the ti dogbone is excellent, there have been reports on this forum that showed the ti axles are very prone to wear. Titanium is basically less denser material as compared to steel.
