i really like how you did the cage. The 1/4'' tubing fits it good, makes it look like it has 2" tubing like a 1:1 would have.

i think it would be real cool... this body really doesnt see enough action. I feel there are a couple of styling issues that needed to be addressed with it like, the rockers are about double of what they should be , and the body sides needed to be pulled in at the bottom to fix the proportions. I fit the body inside the sliders and found some reference pics for the rockers. I was much happier after those little changes

That is a great looking and really unique truck. I like the interior and am curious about the motor mount. I need to switch some things around in my Fj40 build to make some room. Do you have any pics from before you put the tunnel in?

Man your rig looks good BuuuuuuuuttttT it ain't a truggy.
A truggy' don't have frame rails behind the cab .
truck + tube bed = truck with tube bed
truck + buggy = truggy
It is simple math .

Default EVILution

So after having a killer time racking up as many points i could possibly stand at my first scale comp I decided some changes were in order. Lower COG first and foremost. I was really debating to just start over because I did not want to mess up what I thought was a killer looking rig. So out came the cut off wheel and I guess this is the next stage.

8.196 Lbs after the comp and river water soaked foams.


I stripped out my stock axial trans just before the comp and within five minutes of bashing in the back yard the day after the comp so I invested in a aluminum case and robinson metal gears. But I was having a hard time with the crazy heavy hardened output gear. So I chucked it in my Mill and ground through the hardening then drilled it, too bad it hides away inside a case.





Oh a fresh 35t integy hand wind. which i am diggin



Cut the front fender tubes, fabbed front shock mounting, new zero ackerman zero bumpsteer steering, the hand brothers axle mount is still there. but i raised the servo so the axle could sit closer to the framerails.








and this upper cage with its single screw has worked excellent holding the body. Although now ill have to do something for the bedsides and probably the hood also.












And this one is for Badd "the truggy buster" bwahaha


The steering is metal plates attached to vanquish high steer knuckles. I decided to build the zero ackerman into the front actuated rear tie rod plates.


Well any way thats where it is at now...

I saw this tonight and it's just plain awesome! The steering was amazing and I really like the new look. It's got to be one of the meanest looking scalers I've seen
