Default OHOs OG SCX10 gets rebuilt.

I thought I would start a fresh thread for this, the old one is messy, with weird posts and lots of photos/information missing, since I have decided to give the truck a good rebuild, I thought a fresh thread was in order too.

I'll include a few photos of the original truck and a few random shots that were on the old thread but this will mostly be progress from now on.

So, below are some photos from how it started out life and some progress shots of it over time.





















And how it's sat right now, I have put some SSD D60 axle housings on her, with fresh Axial HD gears and Overdrive in the front, first time trying that so it hopefully improves things.
New chassis rails, new skid, rebuilt transmission with Axial HD gears.
Vanquish stage one, SSD links all round.
I am also doing a new body for it, while it's only lexan, I still want to do a good job of it, so it's a work in progress.
Hope you like so far.

Switched over to 32dp gearing, 58t spur, 10t pinion, should be good for low control on 3s.

SSD driveshafts, SSD shocks fitted.

I need to find another chassis brace or two, just bodged this (neatly) for now, but they are plastic, I want all alloy for the chassis to make it as rigid as possible, currently searching eBay for those.

This is how she sits right now.

Decided instead of trying to find a shorter top shaft, to just cut it down, works well for body clearance, it now has a good cm*or so of clearance, before it was about 2mm.

Very happy with the progress on this and overall happy with how the chassis layout looks.

Moved the CoG way down, the battery is lower and closer to the front now, the ESC is evening out the weight distribution, the RX box and ESC are also now much lower, the wires are neatened up, everything is now well below the tops of the shock towers.

Hopefully everything stays put, now to finally decide on a body colour and figure out a mounting system.

Making a little more progress, some days off work and rain has meant I have some free time.

This is the first time I've made anything like this and it's still early stages, but the bed overall will be quite minimalistic, so be kind lol.

Not sure if I will do any actual sides on the bed or maybe just a small bead around the edge.



Just the initial tabs.











Basic layout.







To my surprise I actually got these lined up both sides perfectly first time, not often my measurements are 100% lol.

You'll also notice the cab*actually slides into the bed, originally I was going to have a tilting bed, but it's really no use tilting anyway so this way made much more sense and solved my problem of 'locking' the cab at a certain height, with some Velcro on the front, I think that should work best for quick battery changes and such.

I could just bolt the cab to the bed now, but I don't want to have to take out all these bolts from the bed either, so overall I think this way works well.











I am also still undecided on colour, I did think I was going blue for the cab, so I ordered some blue beadlock rings and blue scale locking hubs, but like a fool I now think I just want it red, I already have lots of red to hand and although it won't be a 100% match, it will at least blend with the Vanquish stage one kit.

Might still put the blue bits on though, just to see how it all blends together.

Hurrah, we have progress!

Just need to figure out where to run the 'hoses' now from the rad, I would also like some sponsor stickers, but struggling to find anything suitable and in the right size, so we'll come back to that.

And who doesn't love a bit of scale bolt goodness.

Looking good OHO.

Rad hoses would go under the cab and towards the front on a 1:1 if the motor was still up front....

Yep, that's what I am aiming for, but don't know exactly where to put them threw at.

Well some more progress



Rad fully finished, 'hoses' routed, not the most creative routing, but quite realistic and made the most sense for keeping bed space free.







Little overview, very happy with it for my first attempt.







Yellow lenses definitely needed!







Always helps to outline what you're cutting out from the outside and use a lightbox, my paint jobs would be even worse without those.







This tool from SSD is so neat!







New beadlock rings and scale hubs on.







Some colour on the body, I am so glad I did indeed decide with the red/blue theme, it would have been too much blue.

Overview shots, definitely making progress, let me know what you think so far?

Some more progress to the '46, really coming together quite nicely now and lets face it, who doesn't enjoy a smile face
I really want to maiden it, but I know I should wait.
What do you guys think so far?

Fairly small update, custom rear bumper is on and looks great in my opinion, exactly what I wanted.

I've now dropped the body a bit too, it hides the esc/battery trays better.

I also went a bit brave and chopped the fenders/steps off a bit too, felt like doing this from the day I opened the bodyshell package but finally done it, I was going to go fully chopped, but then decided I'd like some lights, so needs must and some of them has to stay.

But now it's looking more like a proper rock truck, I am questioning the use of the plate on the rear, would it really be road registered... Nope, so might remove that and put a nice lightbar across the rear instead.

Great job! It looks awesome!

Seeing this makes me want to buy a Power Wagon and rebuild my SCX10 that has been shelved for a couple years!

Looking forward to seeing pics of this beauty out on the trail!

You should totally do it!
This rig wasn't getting used all that much either, in fact I was going to retire it, I even bought a UMG10, then just had a change of heart, although a lot of this is new and not from the old rig, it still feels the same to me.
