Default My Hilux single cab long bed build

After scoopin up a micro crawler for dirt cheap (and having had one when they first came out, My losi micro crawler jeep) I was happily obliged to do up a scaler being inspired by looking through so many builds since. Soooo fun to drive around (especially killing time on pit tables at the local track) and crawls superb!

Brass/solder chassis,
dannaly's mod for wheel width widening
rc4wd shoes, no foams
solder wrapped around rims
led's head and tail


Here she is in her completed stage (for now) -



next to her (yet to be)unmolested sister






Hoping for some opinions:
Of course it crawls better with the width and bigger tires, but which looks better- stock or the mickey thompsons?

Awesome rig,I'm a huge Toyota fan so it gets my 2 thumbs up.

If you don't mind could you go in to a little detail on how you incorporated the led's and components used. I'm looking to add some to a build im doing and those look sick.

Some chassis photos & ongoing accessory updates-
added a rear cage, and ID retract winch setup(really helps crazy climbs!!)
Have decided to keep MT's on there since it crawls soo much better with em.

Will get some pics to help explain- but essentially I just split the servo wiring to splice a pos+ and neg- female servo lead out of it which connects to the lights wiring on the body. That gives me 6V from the esc/rx unit of which I cut down to 3v or so(I don't with the proper resistor. Led's are hot glued in place behind the head & tail light lenses.
