Default Weapon's Hilux truggy

well I had these parts sitting doing nothing.
going to try and do something similar to Unglewd's "SCX truggy"







going to lower it as soon as I find some SCX-10 shocks.
and it will have 1.5 rock stompers on it.

Lots of progress tonight
New axial shocks installed
Links sorted out
Body mounting finished
1.55s swapped from the camper (its getting the new white spokes and new stompers)


Still figuring out the wiring and battery mount
I will probably use the space under the fuel cell for some electronics and box it in with styrene
also need to figure out a good mount for the offroad lights still
I cant decide if I care about the huge gap between the cab and the "truggy back"




need a set of those trailfinder 2 thin hexes to bring the wheels in

Well after making links and fiddling with wheelbase I decided I was too invested so I filled in the gap instead. .





this should almost disappear once the truck is painted, but I may have to straighten the vertical bars so it doesnt look weird



got lots done
filled the holes



light bar installed



this is the cleanest wiring I have ever done



the truck is a runner now
