After seein how awesome Kathleen's Bronco looked with a white grill I decided to white mine out as well. Not sure if itll stay this way or go black but I dig it for now. Got the lights workin too!!!

Lights look good. I dunno... I think I like the white grill. If it didnt have a white top, it wouldnt work. But it looks good on there.

I agree...Ive always wanted a blue with white top and white grill Bronco in 1:1 but for some reason I keep thinkin this one needs a black grill. I think Im gonna keep it white for a while tho, then it it doesnt grow on me Ill hit it with some black and see what I think.

Here are a couple more updated shots. It was cruddy out so you cant really see the white grill but I got to run the lights which was fun. You can see the new taillight solution I came up with after accidentally painting over them from the inside. I cut them out and put some scrap lexan in place. Colored that red with a sharpie then cut the backup light out from the stock sticker and placed it in the right spot. It actually turned out alot better than I thought it would!!!







Thing flexes out pretty decent for what it is. I like the balance alot, and Im learnin to work with it more and more as I get more time with it.

That is one sick Bronco. Pretty good photography skills too.

Sorry if I missed it, but is that the Pro-line body? How well did it match the stock wheelbase?

Man this is a cool Bronco. I just bought some reduced TSL's for mine after seeing yours. I might steal that taillight idea as well. They look good that way...more 3D instead of flat lexan body style.

This is the Tamiya Bronco body, the Proline is alot bigger and fits the SCX10 really well. To do the Tamiya Bronco you will need to hack a bit off the chassis and shorten the wheelbase quite a bit...but its OH SO WORTH it!!!

These tires are awesome!!! I wrinkled on up really good this weekend and thought Ide either ripped one of my seams or debeaded it but nope, she's still solid!!! I love it when my work holds up to all the abuse I like to throw at it LOL



Speaking of abuse, I was goofin around WOT when I turned left, heard a snap and she locked em up.



Ends up I lost a bolt in the steering knuckle, it fell outta place and the dogbone got in a bind which stopped the Bronco quick and tossed the driveshaft off the yoke. She's back together and I havnt noticed any other damage...got lucky! Food Drive is this comin weekend, gonna freshen her up and get ready to go!

Thought I would toss up some shots from the 3rd Annual STR Food Drive. I got to really beat on the simple sliders which did amazing! Only other mod was finally venting the rear wheels. Def. the best its ever crawled!











Now all I really need is a back bumper and then maybe get to work on an interior!

I appreciate it man!!! There were 3 CC01 Broncos runnin around, but I could never get em in the same place and the same time so I snagged this shot while I could. Its such a wonderfully detailed little body, its too fun to work on. I got Kathleen another one and her's, altho not the color I would choose , looks even better than mine detail wise!

Still looking great! Glad to see it is holding together well.

It would be neat to see you do an interior, the interior on the yellow one looks nice.

Got bored and slapped together another set of 3.8" tires for the Bronco lol. They arent near as good lookin as the TSL's but they are alot of fun to run and will see plenty of action backing up the TSLs.







Whoops







Doesnt look like much but Im very proud of this shot. Ive fought this rock many times in the past and never quite made it but today I sat down, took my time and it finally happened!



Love the new tires. They handled everything I threw at em, altho they were a little loose in the slick stuff but I think that will get better once I wear em in a bit. They wont replace the TSLs by any means but will be fun to run from time to time!!!

Took a couple pics of the Bronco out at Twisted's nasty offroad park. This park was a challenge for big tire, long wheelbase rigs so the Bronco was way out of its element, but I did all I could with it anyways!!! I ran the 3.8 Irons again for some more testing and really like the way they handle, even with crap foams and being stretched over a 1.9 wheel. I sanded the outter sidewalls smooth and after this run have decided to do both sides.









I popped the driveshaft off twice in this run, Im thinkin some Junfacs are in order shortly. I also need to get the shocks back out and on the rear, the springs are super soft now and flex like mad but inclines are getting harder and harder.

Just got some new screws in for the MTHead rings on the Titus wheels. These are only temporary but I use em to test out all my new tires so I figure I might as well make em look good!

Forgive my n00b question, but what wheels were you running on this truck? Not the beadlock ones, the other ones. Where can I get them?

Thanks!
