Talking The "other one"

Well it finally arrived, my $39.00 c.c. plus the extra $38.00 from taxes and freight to my country, still $77.00 is not bad, this will be a mostly stock build, i will just lower the body, mamba 25 esc, tp servo, maybe some taller 2.2's.
Some crappy box pics and his older brother.

If you go with 2.2s get steel gears and outdrives for the axles because they dont last long.

Hmmm... what to do for this build? well i don't want to put to much into it, so i decided i would do a semi scaler(motor on axle aren't really scale), and i started palying around with some hard bodies i have laying around, and i am pretty sure that a toyota rav build hasn't been done yet ( it's what fitted with out doing to much to the chassis and links) i put this body and it looks good imho, all i have done to the c.c. is narrowed the track width with different stub axles and hexes.

Where did you find that body, who makes it and where could I get me one? That is a very tasty lookin setup. As for the MOA not being scale, screw that, as long as it works and you are having fun, PISS ON THE SCALE RULES AND HATERS!

This came from one of those cheap chinese toys they sell over here, it has a full interior and driver, doors open, and its tail and headlights accept leds, i got it for around $10.00.

Can you get more of them? I would possibly be interested in paying you for your trouble one if you could help a brother out.

I'll check around during the weekend, i have to warn you though, shipping from here to the u.s. is probably going to run around $35-45 depending on box size and it may take anywhere from 15-25 days to get, sometimes less, ask kaetwo i sent him some unimog bodies a couple years ago and it took 3 weeks to get to him.

Well, if you could give me some details about the brand name of toy it came from, I might be able to find on through eBay or elsewhere and then if I have no luck, we could do plan B, seeing if you could help me out.

Well i decided to use the interior that came with body so i have to use another chassis, so i built one from lexan (actually i drew it and had Daniel, one of my installers cut it out for me), i will start the build and see how it works with everything else stock.

Can you say," back from the dead", i hadn't touched this rig in ages or finished it for that matter, but i was looking for some parts for another build and decided to give it another go, only this time it's going to be a ford body from one of my blackfoots on it.

Sorry, these were avilable at that price at tower hobbies before they got discontinued, but look around in the for sale section someone might be selling his.
