i was playin with this rig a bit i decided to leave the red i used some fake red carbon fiber for the hood it dident come out to good but will work for now and the red sharpie fixes the scratches pretty good i painted the parts black that were saposed to be black and i decided the redcat gen8 wheels and tires would be perfict for this rig so there on it now and seem to work good the matching spare is a nice touch too i might have to add some weight to the weight box to get it to fly nice and leval and its new powerplant is in th3 novak hd8 with a cheap chinese esc seems to be working im gona swap it out for a sensered unit someday hopefully another mmx but for now its working
i had to reinforce the rear bedsides cause they were starting to crack i used some sheetmetal on the inside and out and sandwiched the back end to add some stiffn3ss and keep it from getting worse so far it seems good
this is turning out to be a realy nice trail truck that vary closely resembles the first race raptor that they ran in baja so im realy stoked on it
anyway heres the good stuff





i think i over did the front grill i think the ford lettering is saposed to be red too but ohwell it is what it is



heres the butt shot the metal strip is installed theres another strip under the bed too i would like to make some 45 braces for the bed side oh well maybe later

Nice work! Great to see some more Raptors on here. When I built mine somebody intelligent told me to use a Yeti as a base which I really should have listened to.

What was making the bedsides crack?

thanks yo the bed sides were cracking mostly cause i beat the snot out of it landing square on the bed from 5-6 feet of air and i cut alot of the bed out to get the shocks and sway bar in there and and on top of that its heavy with the giant hd8 motor and 2 2s 5000mah batterys and it still gets up and moves

I break small pieces off my body shell by touching it wrong so I was worried the beds would crack from vibration or their own weight. My truck hasn't been running long enough for that to happen

mine seems pretty solid but i have a extra body when the time comes

i hit a tree at full speed it distroyed the bumper and i know the body took a hit too but its fine the bumper however needs alot of work

i guess the overboard bracing payed off not one of the mounting points failed and no damage to the undercarage



there are a few different types of plastic used on these rigs some a hard and ridgid and some are more rubber like and flex alot before they crack
