Thanks! I can count this build as pretty complete. Amazon 35kg servo still holding up but otherwise that'll be the only thing to change out when the time comes. Super happy the way it turned out anyway.

Nice details! The interior looks great!

I like the looks of them there trailing arms! And the hood scoop turned out perfect! Great job!

This rig was doing a pose when someone ran into it on accident and it took a tumble so it received some real scratches. Passenger mirror came off and hood scoop had paint damage but both are repaired. Check it out in it's dirty self.






Few shots from Mt Diablo few weekends ago.






And here we are today. Although the extreme flex is cool and tucks the rear wheels into the bed, it's time to make the rig perform slightly better in the crawl category. I moved the shocks to their conventional position but still left the trailing arms on. This raised the ride height a tad so I adjusted the coilovers to the lowest setting and was fine with how it sat so also adjusted the front accordingly. The rear is definitely more supportive when climbing (as expected).




Scored these polished versions of my black wheels. I think they would match having the manual hubs on better and give the whole truck some contrast but I also like having the black wheels. Let me know what y'all think.

I brought this (and 4 other rigs) to the recent Amain Trail Run out in Paradise, CA. I figured it'd be fun to run this thing in 2wd on the trails. I even threw in my 3800kv Castle motor with a 22t pinion, along with the Mamba X robbed from the #11 Slash Trailrunner. Thing is a blast to drive! Throws the steady crawling out the window and quietness, but definitely a change of pace. Well, I didn't get to enjoy it much because I forgot my hub tool to unlock the front...





The ESC is adhesive taped on a piece of ABS I glued to the front bumper mount. I drilled two holes for it to sit flush with the bumper mount screws that stick up a bit.




This setup seems right at home with how this build is. The Fusion Pro gave it the scale crawling vibe, but since I have 10+ different Toyota builds, this combo makes it stand out from the pack. It is the only one with trailing arms and 2wd capability so it's perfect. Now I need an ESC for the Slash...
