Default Collaboration of scx10.2 builds

Scroll to post 43 for the latest

Just picked up a new to me scx10 ii believe was originally the Jeep Cherokee rtr.

Iíve had a wraith for about 5 months now and thought Iíd ad a 1.9 to the garage.

Had a bit of a poor buying experience unfortunately, was in a hurry when I met the guy and he advertised it as ďlike newĒ which it was far from. A servo swap later, just about replacing every screw, some differential and transmission service including steel gears, a rc4wd 35t motor and some suspension work itís been a pretty fun rig.

The body had been painted with regular paint the he attempted to plasti-dip the windows and it reacted with the paint. I attempted to save it with brake fluid and that just about ruined it.

Looking to upgrade a few things like steering links, servo relocation and center mount battery add a new lid and keep on driving.

I am impressed so far itís made a couple obstacles the wraith struggles on look easy!

Elk rock! That place is a blast to take crawlers to. My buddy and I usually do a whole loop around the island weekly with ours!

Yep thatís the place! I just started going there a couple months ago with my wraith before I picked up the scx10 ii.

Ended up somewhat salvaging the body, Iíve done a couple upgrades added sliders ssd titanium steering links have a rear bumper coming today and some spare wheels and tires Monday. Hope to get some action pics this weekend

Looks good. Looks like somebody drove the crap out of it, fixed n primed the damage n left it at that.

Was able to take it out yesterday to a little spot called high rocks. Ended up being pretty flooded but had fun for an hour or so

Maybe some metal beadlocks next, RC4WD white steel spokes would look great!

and hex hubs (instead of pin drive) to go with them.

Beautiful crawl spots, thanks for the pictures! Do the needed upgrades as they come up, add your own style touches and enjoy!

I agree nate, the white wagon wheels go good with those older model trucks

Made a couple changes but Iíve been finding myself driving the scx10 ii over the wraith almost every time. Might end up parting ways with the wraith but I havenít decided. Anyways I moved the shocks to the link mount and what a difference that made! Also added some aluminum shock towers

I picked up servo/battery relocation mounts not super happy about the battery tray setup because Iím running a full size pack but it will work for now.
Also picked up some fleabay aluminum bead locks to get some weight down low. Trying to find a deal on a body but Iíll probably end up spending the money on the Bronco deadbolt body soon. But so far been loving the 1.9er

Picked up a Jeep Wrangler rubicon body cheap for the rig, getting ready for some paint. Unfortunately weather wonít permit paint for a while, but have a couple ideas and color combos in mind.
Also have some new bumpers and final pieces to build the xtra speed axles to gain a little weight down low. Been a fun ride so far!

Well finally got the body done, rushed the paint job a little due to weather and living in an apartment but all n all looks good for something thatís gonna get used!
Have yet to mount up the new shocks and looking for a different set of aluminum bead locks, the gold doesnít mesh so well with the color scheme. Waiting on link mounts for the xtra speed housings I got then I can build my new alloy axles

I love the old Bronco but you made a big improvement with the new body and paint.

Havenít posted in a while, but Iíve since installed the eBay piggyback shocks I paid $17 for and have 0 complaints. Full functional piggyback. I installed xtra speed axle housings with aluminum lockouts c-hubs and knuckles that added some great weight down low.
Let me tell you this thing is a blast to drive. Still running a rc4wd 35t with no complaints. I added a savox 1231sg 444oz servo with the BEC feeding that directly. Just added some alloy bumpers and a warn winch with a controller in the mail.

Oh and I swapped my wraith for the red JK. Pretty much stock added a stinger has the case for an optional 2 speed. Thinking about selling that and picking up a trx4 kit

Rig looks good, highly recommend the trx4.

also be sure to take that thing to the coast for some good crawling and epic scenery.

I miss crawling the Portland area. I used to wheel in Lake Oswego (Oswego landing) a bunch in 2008. I remember a few people drowned at high rocks around that time too. I'm not sure if its any safer to swim there now.

As much as I disliked my red jeep, it turned out to be an awesome 2.2 wheeler, if you want to go that route with it. Wouldn't take much. I could give you info on my build if you're interested.
