Finally had good weather and was able to take this truck out for a run. I have to say itís a great platform. Handled great and was a blast to drive. Not a huge fan of the wheels, they were an impulse buy and I may swap them out for something different. Need to get inner fender wells and an interior ASAP too.

Looks a great place to drive. Those wheels look like Gmade alloys. I have some similar ones.

Theyíre Boom Racing wheels. The Evo High I think.

Recently added a generic interior, painted the inside of the body black in order to keep light from shining through it, added some scale goodies and changed wheels. Canít wait to get back out and have some fun!

How are those tires doing on the truck? Thinking about trying a set out for my venture...

I really really like these tires. Iíve run them on multiple trucks in both the larger 1.9 size and this smaller size. HIGHLY recommend them! I recently switched from the stock foams to some CI single stage foams, Iíll post an update once I get to take it out on the rocks.

Thanks! I was a little conflicted about taking them off my other truck but they look sooooo good with the FJ body.

Nice looking truck. The new wheels look much better.

After many weeks of rainy weekends and other things getting in the way I finally had time to go hit the rocks. The flat bottom skid made a HUGE difference. I have to say, this is now my favorite truck to take out. The old scx10 ii may be shelved for a while.

Minor update to this awesome little rig....

Installed a HH Trail Master 550 motor and finally got around to painting and installing the HPI inner fender set. Waiting for my bum foot to heal up so I can go for a trail run.

After months on the shelf I finally got some time to go out and have some fun.

Sunday Runday with the local crawler group. Had a blast on some new terrain. Iím typically crawl river beds and limestone, this area was a scale trail built by a friend of mine.

That Chevy body and cage looks really cool. It's no bug body, but it's still pretty cool.

The height at which you mounted it looks good. There isn't a ton of open space between the tires and the wheel wells.

Glad to see that body is being put to good use! Looks awesome on that truck!

Thanks! My goal was to run it as low as possible and at almost full droop. Only rubbed once but it was driver error and I got it pretty stuffed between two trees and we had a no hand of god rule at this event so I had to just power my way out.
