Installing a .21 in a RUSH
Ive decided to do it, so here's the HOW TO.
I wanted to something "diffrent". I really didn't need all the power, but I thought it'd be fun. So, I went to the LHS and went shopping. I ended up coming out of there with:
I did. The exaust was WAY too long. It almost hits the front suspension arm, steering link, and turnbukle.
Well, The throttle hit my transmission, and chassis brace, my engine mounts hit my chassis, and i later found that my flywheel hit the aluminum standoffs for my upper deck. It also rubbed my upper deck in 3 places. By the throttle servo, behind the throttle servo, rite under the chassis brace.
Now a new problem arose, The clutch bell hit under neith the chassis brace. I had to grind a space in the brace to make it fit.
I had to remove that chassis plate the old engine mounted to, so to replace it, I made a new one, but to bolt on the bottom. The new one is larger, and through non jumping (yet) testing, ive yet to bend my chassis. But this includes hitting things dead on at 50+ mph.
I bolted everything togather, and counter sunk my plate. I cleaned up my truck, and made new linkage for my carb/brakes.
And its DONE!!!
