Jebster's Subaru Brat
 
10 Attachment(s)
I've had this body around for a few years. I always loved the look of a brat set up for offroading and trailing. When I saw the boom racing brx70 narrow axles I knew I had the driveline made for this build. I also happened to have a swb kit for the scx10 that I was able to use to get the rails inside the short body. Still had to cut about 0.5" off the front.
To keep the body tucked low I have to concentrate the electronics to the skid area (I'm not going to do an interior). I decided to move the steering servo and use a steering block made for a tamiya semi.
Because I want an external cage tight to the body I've had to come up with a way to insert the body. I'm going to make it so the cage bolts to the front and rear bumpers as two halves.
Lots more work to go but the pics should give you an idea of where it stands today.

Thanks. First time I've put together a rig based on 1.55 wheels so packing things into a tight space if fun. Plus having a cage tracking the body lines closely is proving to be a challenge with the tube bending equipment I have (which is practically none! :))

Got some more cage work done. Sticking with my plan to have the ability to split the cage so I can wrap it around the body. It will have points with bolts that allow it to be rigid.

More tube work completed. Has the passenger side done and added some tabs to the top tubes for mounting roof rack.

I love how the cage echos the lines of a Subaru GL Wagon.

funny. I never made that connection. my goal was to have the cage follow the contours of the body but I can see what you mean

That is awesome. Love the look of that rig, especially the front bumper setup.
