Default Finishlines C1 SCX10 Yota "Christmas Budget Build"

Well since i have to buy christmas gifts for the family and grand kids, I thought i would reward my self with a small gift myself. On a tight budget so i thought i could get this done with stuff i had on the work bench we'll see how it works out.

Ok so it's been about 3 years since I have wanted to build a scaler with a Yota body. Came across a good fairly new SCX10 roller and a Mojave body that allready had been bobbed. I pretty much did some filling on the body, removed the front side markers and put some work into a decent paint job.

Started by shooting some primer then i touched it with some silver to make it looked like sanded metal.


Standard roller with bent rear links, Radio Shack project box for the electronics and Level 3 chassis mounted stearing


This is were I am with it right know, starting to look good!


List of my electronics
ESC: Tekin B1R
Battery: 2cell 4000mah
Motor: Axial 27 turn
Pinion: 20
Servo: Hobbico CS170
Winch: RC4WD 9300xt
Winch Controller: 2nd gen Mamba Micro
Lights: Bill's Rc Light Kit

Dude ur steering link needs to go to the other side! With it setup like that youll have some nasty bump steer, and defeats the purpose of the panhard.

On a good note paint looks great!

Thanks for pointing that out, I just mounted the steering link that was on the roller to center tires while mounting the body. Still have to work out a bunch of small stuff on this rig. I wanted to run it like this so when I turn it looks like I have hydros

Thanks guys! Yeah the winch is twice as fast as it was with the stock controller.

Made some progress on it tonight:
1. Shortened and put a slight bend on the front lower links now the front wheels line up with the wheel wells a little better.
2. Fabed up a new steering link
3. Tried some industrial strength Velcro for the front body mount but I'm not sure i like it. I really don't want to put any holes in the front side of the body.
4. Added the Mad Dog winch line and hook to the 9300xt winch.

Well i tied up most of the loose ends on this rig. I got everything wired up and mounted. Bench tested and it all worked fine just hope it does the same on the rocks this weekend at our comp.

New stearing link "on the correct side"


Made an L bracket to relocate the shock placement and it got the shocks down low enough to where i did not have to cut into the bed.


Lights and the scale items mounted tooThe tool box is a butter container from the $1 store and i just painted it. It is full of scale items!



After looking at this pic next thing to do is lower the body 1/4 in or more

Almost forgot mounted the RC4WD Mickey Thompson MTZ's on stock axial rims with MTHead rings. These rings really change the whole look of the wheel especialy when your on a tight budget like i am

Took it out for the first comp today. It is a very smooth running rig. The only thing i really need to work on is my suspension, limit rear shocks, spring rate and oil. Here are a couple pics i got from todays L.E.R.K. scaler comp.

Well here is a small update for the rig. After the last comp I felt I had to limit down travel on the rear shocks which i did, added a 1/4" internal spacer. The rig is much more stable now. I also added some new fender wells, cut out piece of lexan and painted it black that basically shields the motor, tranny and most of the wiring, lowered the electronics box and battery for better COG, added a small retractable key chain with a hook to act as a tow device, replaced the old esc with a new FXR, and then there's my scale driver lets just say hes not to happy

He's pissed at the other drivers in C1










Functional scale tool box full of functional scales items. The box is a butter container from the Dollar Store! Don't mind the I Heart Badger sticker

Truck looks great, make me want one!

I was looking at the MTZ's for my Bronco but I was worried about them being too tall. Compared to the Flat Irons in one of the pics how tall are they and do you like them better performance wise than the Flat Irons?

The Bronco looks great man just checked your build thread out again. In my opinion you can't go wrong with the Flat Irons, the more you use them the better they work. Only problem is you can't use them in Class 1 comps and this is my comp / trail rig. As for the MTZ's go they work pretty good from what I can see I haven't had to much wheel time on them tho. I changed the front foams out to Novas and the back are due to follow. The stock foam is to narrow for my liking, the tire seems to roll over pretty easily. Scale appearance and size on these tires are spot on on most rigs I have seen them on.
