I got a little update. I finally smoked the motor but...I scored a Losi 18.5 brushless system for it I really liked the smoothness of it and the noise level dropped too. I crawled it at the ScaleTrailRunners 3rd annual food drive and it did AWESOME! I did rip the shock screws out of it so I finally got it on the bench and built the body mount the way I should have in the beginning. This allowed me to mount the shocks they way they should be. Kinda killed 2 birds with one stone. I'm gonna tear it down and give the chassis a fresh coat of paint and get it all cleaned up and running perfect so I can post it in another section towards the bottom of the forum If you know what I mean.





Here's a couple of pictures from the Food Drive.

After looking at the food drive pictures I need to get a sharpie and re draw the door lines!

Got the brushless system installed and running ! Nice set up and longer runs times for the LONG trailes!

I am like a kid at Christmas!

This was my brothers 1:1 Samurai, I used to love it and always wanted one of my own, albeit a little "smaller" than his was, I bet I have just as much fun with it.
Say a prayer for him, he goes in for back surgery tomorrow morning. When he gets healed up we will go hit the trails!

The Sammi is a bad little rig!!! It has crawled with the BlueBronco many-a-time and always leaves a smile on everyones face when it does somethin it shouldnt. Its not a point and shoot rig like the big tire boys, it requires some driving but with some skill behind the radio itll make things it should never have even tried!!! Have fun with it, and keep the build thread alive with updates so we dont miss it too much!

First ride that I remember it bein at



With the ole TrailCourier





With the BlueBronco



Runnin the reduced swampers

I'll post up pics as soon as it arrives, which might be as early as Thursday! I plan on just keeping up this thread (if it's okay with Mr. Ed) with my trail pics and updates of the Samurai.
Sure looks like a blast to drive, I'm sure I will learn alot in the first few days!

I think keeping this thread alive is cool with me! but we should give credit where credit is do and have a moderator change the name to OKjeepin's Suzuki Sammurai! she is yours now.

I got home earlier from the UPS store and freaked a little when I didn't see it parked on the shelf! but then I though...oh yeah....sold her
