Wild Willy - not so wild...
 
Hi

I've had an AX10 chassis for quite a while, had it taken apart a few times to use parts of it for other projects, but eventually put it all back together again in order to get a descent crawler next to all my scalers which mostly lack good crawling characteristics due to their nature... .

So I'm currently in the process to "pimp" the chassis a little with lots of aluminum and also had to make a decision on what body I would put on it.

Not being a friend of plain Lexan bodies and because here in Germany everyone seems to get a Wild Willy these days I thought I go for one and adapt it to my AX10.

As I said before, it's still a WIP, so you'll have to be a little patient until I can present the results, but I won't leave you without an appetizer, of course... :ror:

Thanks. Making the arm turn was nearly impossible due to the stiffness of the driver figure's arm... .

Oh I see, maybe you can make a racing suit for him to wear....

I have seen one (with moving steering wheel and arm) in youtube, can't find it at the moment....

No. no. I'm happy with it the way it is... it's not a scaler, you know... . ;-)

Thanks.

Oh yes, that is fine. Lots of weight in the axles and wheels, very light body.

Anyhow, I don't use my ax10 for heavy climbing, for that I have my Wraith...
