Default Kei Krawler

Quick little build here. I was happy to see the WPL 1/10 Suzuki Carry on Asiatees and always wanted a 1:1 to goof around in. Thought it'd be a fun little trail rig so after talking to Harley at Crawl for a Cure, a plan was hatched. I picked up the Thunder tiger version of the CR12 and made a few pieces to put the WPL body on the TT chassis. The decision to tick with 2s was made in order to keep the gears alive. Second decision was what tires to use as this thing is pretty small. Ah yes, the Axial Yeti Jr. tires are perfect!

The point of this build was to keep it as simple as possible and use as much of the original parts so I was happy to be able to reuse the bumpers, relocated front body mounts and front shock towers. Losi Mini-t 2.0 shocks were used to bring the height down.

Very neat custom build. I like unique “utilitarian” off-road vehicles. (Love to see a Pinzgauer kit some time).

Cool build. We used to have them at work 2000-2010ish. We had the simple 2wd, and one Mighty Mits 4wd. Topped out at 20 mph unless you turned ignition off, then back on it would do 35. Had to drive a guy to the ER in one of these once after he got his hand crushed. Small cab, loud screaming, you get the idea!

In case Chino's build didn't get you inspired enough take a look at these:
