Buy the BareBones model, Premacon offers a quality, powerful, proven reliable hydraulic systems kit & the rest of what's needed can be easily sourced from various robotics sites within this continent.
That's not the point though is it. 4200 is a massive seller in NA regardless what any of us german product spoiled kids think about it. As such, a steel upsized kit at that price will sell very well, especially if exposed and marked well. People are always more inclined to add on to something they have.

What for some is simply "finding, sourcing, matching and installing a complete system from Germany", for others it is mission impossible. My RC acquaintances think im a masochist cutting aluminum and playing with hoses. Their world ends with changing the wheels of an axial and going to some event to rock crawl.


bigford, this thread is literally 3 threads down from the sticky on the main page of this forum. how is that digging anything?

Take some pics of the internals, drive motors and where battery hides, if possible dimensions of available room for battery. Thanks radar.

Well..anyone have any updates? I shot them an email a few days ago after I saw everything on here. I'd like to imagine they are still working on it and close to releasing something I can get my hands on.

Update time!! I recently received an email from the barebones guys, try are ready for orders and I will be buying one once I get established at my new job.
Upon that time (I'm hoping within a month or 2) I'll upload a bunch of pics and maybe do an unboxing video or something, I'm not sure never done any vids before =/
