Thread: RC stuff

  1. #1

    RC stuff

    A couple years ago i picked up an axial scx 10, it came with a dingo body, looks like a rover, but thatís what it is called.

    I picked up a jeep body for it, thought it was a 4 door, but was a 2 door. Wanted to make a mini version of mine.

    This is what it looked like for a year or two, added a roof rack and that was about it.






    Hands up, Don't shoot!

    Recently, I ended upp putting the dingo body back on, and adding some decals, moved the roof rack from the jeep body, and got some scale accessories (1:10)





    that is a scale keg o beer on the rack

    I checked out some of the forums and people really get into this stuff, there is all sorts of scale accessories out there, even tow cables and ropes, I make one out of some spare picture wire I had hanging around



    I also changed out the front and rear bumpers




    I also picked up a wraith rock racer. The stock body on it is pretty cool, but being a jeep guy, I wanted a jeep look to it.

    There is a proline kit for this already out there on ebay, but I figured I could try cutting down the original body I already have and see if I could make it work.



    This stuff is a bitch to cut with an xacto knife or scissors. I eventually got it done.

    It still wasn’t fitting just right with the cage on the existing wraith, and I wanted to see if I could get it right where I could fold down the windshield if I wanted to, or take it off altogether.

    Some more careful cutting

    Windshield off. I need to get the old gopro mount off, it is stuck on there pretty good, but you get the windshield idea.




    Windshield up




    This is how it sits for now. I haven’t even taken this on its maiden run yet. I need to get holes drilled in this to actually attach, and figure out what to do for the rest of the panels.

    Is anyone else into these? They can be money pits like the real things, or so Ive heard. All sorts of stuff available, axles, tires, lockers, gears, other scale stuff, driver figures, so on and so forth

    Plus the battery life is great on these. I am using a nicad battery for now, but it will have at least a 30 min run time, i guess since you are not going full speed all the time and more crawling.
    More to come…
