What a great project dezfan ! I love these kinds of stories, they make for memorable threads.

Because you asked, I like the style of the top cage. That said the bottom one might look a whole lot better with the spare mounted. It seems designed to complement it.

Dude that looks awesome! Amazes me what can be done on a budget when you start hunting round!! If I had a 3d printer would print you few scale bits for the rear! I think cross rc cage looks better than the injora! It's the big chunk of plastic in middle of injora one that puts me off!! Cross one looks more realistic!! Can't wait to see some more! Really hope this little dude likes his truck!!

I like the the cross rc one better as well. Been lookin at gettin the chevy c10 body n the cross rc cage n mate them together. Think it would look cool with the bed sides around the cage. Then use the excess lexan to inclose the open areas for a drop bed inisde the cage

Looking good dez! Lo-Do coming together nicely!

I really like that Cross-RC cage. It should look great on that body as long as the roll bar lines up with the cab fairly close. It's a great price too! I think I may pick one up for my Enduro.

So you guys like the Injora cage.😮


🤣


Since I have a NIB ESC, a new set of 1.9 wheels, and a servo waiting on my Capra to arrive, I figured I could dip into that budget for the cage.

The Cross cage has been ordered.👍🏼

Looks like the Injora cage has a lower departure angle where the spare hangs down. Cross cage is better.

Well Lo-Do is a roller.


Got all the electronics installed, set up, and rolled it around on the bench.

The little “knock off” 1060 was very easy to set up.

Set my end points and got some descent steering out of the Injora axle.

715-ACF41-3-F05-4-AE8-B065-A2-D8-FBC0081-C
3-EEFA850-B563-4-A58-BD03-4-A3-D00812757

The drive train is really quiet. I’m pleasantly surprised.

Finished glueing up the front tires.

I also trimmed a little more off the front bumper. Basically I cut it to the bottom of the front grill to get the body as low as possible with the included bumper on the Injora chassis.

3-AB3-A2-CE-9-B2-D-4-A59-8-E59-FECE26-D5523-E

Axial body post won’t work as the Injora shock towers have flats molded on two sides.

9-AEE85-D0-2213-4-BE1-A771-369389216809

I either need to order the Injora body posts, or rig up something on my own.

I’ll see what I have floating around the shop.

Can you just run a drill bit down that body post hole?

Yeah, that would work.

I thought about just running some Axial body post on my belt sander to create flats, but drilling the towers out would probably be easier.

You scared me there, I'm putting one of these together and just the other day I ordered axial body posts. They've just arrived and they seem to fit fine, including the big Y shaped post. They are AX80031

I guess the OG SCX10 body post are GTG.

I was trying to use the 10.2 post.

Think Im going to order a set of OG SCX10 shock towers and post to correct this issue, or just fab up something with what I have here in the shop.
