Default Thunder Tiger Hilux

So this will be ran as is for awhile but eventually the plan is to use it as donor for a tamiya hilux hardbody build. Figured I'd go 1.55 since it will spend most its life on those or maybe 1.7's.

I didnt grab bunch of pics and as of now since its all stock other than trying out bunch of old tire\wheel combos I had laying around on it. The TLT's really make me think of the start of the monster trucks when 48" tires were the norm and some ran tractor tires still.

Good little trucks. Picked up a 2nd when they went in sale for $80. The axles are narrower than the Yota II axles from RC4wd. You just have to get creative with body choices

I just picked one up as well. Total donor truck for my new build.
Took it out of the box, tried it and took it apart. Cool little trucks

Looks fantastic with the TLT tires.. Kind of reminds me of the those old Radio shack trucks I bashed around with as a kid.

Yeah I can get that! like the old nikko Lobo truck I had as kid.

I plan to throw couple more sets of tires under it for pics here today, nothing earth shaking but might be useful for someone thinking about what to run.

Ok so here are few of the combos I have laying around. These are all just stuck on one side and the body posts are adjusted all the way up for the TLT setup still, you would want to lower them back down for some of these. I also have some 2.2 but I think that would be out of place here so I just went 1.5-1.9.

Stock Wheels & Tires


HPI Mini Trophy 1.9 Wheels & Tires


Axial 1.9 Wheels & Tamiya BFG Tires


Gmade 1.9 Wheels & TopCad 1.7 Semi Tires


Feiyue Wheels & Tires

And these are just the chassis flipped over to set the Tamiya Hilux cab over the axles with the Gmade\TopCad setup that I plan to use as poser setup. I think with slightly thicker hex's this will be nice combo for a stock truck look. Last pic is my inspiration pic but plan on blue with black wheels and probably stock Tamiya chrome bumper's.
