Well here it my picture build of the DIB. I am breaking it up into several sections so that the parts and pictures are a little easier to find and understand what is being used. So off to the races as it were.
Here is the chassis with all the parts from Bag 1:
- Motor Mount
- Front and Rear Lower suspension parts.
- Front and Rear Bulkheads for differentials.
Installed the Front and Rear Suspension Mounts using 4 – M3 x 6mm flat head machine screws with a little blue Loctite to keep them parts in place. The rear mount has a larger offset then the front so make sure that you install them in the correct places. Also the Front Mount has ‘FR’ (DRB-301FR)and the Rear Mount has ‘RF’ (DRB-301RF)on the left side of the parts.
Installed the Motor Mount using 2 – M3 x 8mm flat head machine screws with a little blue Loctite to keep them parts in place. The flat side of the motor mount need to be facing inboard the out side will have a groove and a large depression for mount the motor and adjusting the lash or mesh of the pinion and spur gears. Part # IB-303M(R) r is for red color.
Installed the Front Bulkheads using 4 – M3 x 10mm flat head machine screws. Part # IB-302
