Default Losi Micro Trail Trekker F250 scaler build

Well I just got my trail trekker off of craigslist. it has a lipo, and the losi micro crawler shocks for longer travel. im going to ATTEMPT to make a scalerhaha. I am planning to do a 1979 Ford Bronco but they are harder to find and I haven't put a 1/24 model together in years so I decided to to a Ford F250 Super Duty to work the bugs out haha. anyway i hope it looks ok in the end, Ill be posting pictures of the progress. Any tips are apprecited.

I can't wait to see some progress!!! Good luck!!! Make sure the body posts aren't visible and put no holes in the body! I did that on my first scaler and regret it all the time!! Good luck building and Happy Crawling!!

Thanks for the tip. I took the frame from the kit and put it on the truck and it looks like i need to move the rear axle back about 3/4 of an inch. O well more fun lol. I painted to body blue, ill put pictures up tonight hopefully. I'm not to sure how to hook the body on the truck... Any tips? Thanks for the positive feed back guys.

If I remember I just glued the body like the instructions called for, of course I have the original frame mounted on top of the Blade chassis with some clear lexan (outside of the frame to frame, front and back)and screws for remaval of I need it.

I would take off the body posts and leave the flat platform left, then put velcro on that, then some velcro on the body too!! Good luck! I can't wait for the pictures!!

wow ive had that same body painted metallic blue for months....never got around to figuring out the long chassis. cant remember but think stock look would have a long 7 inch wheel base. was either gonna go w square brass tube custom chassis or two trail trekker rails. now im thinkin maybe shorter for a bobbed/doved/truggy look.

yours will def be 'done' first haha

well i kinda finished the cab and got it sittin on the frame. looks kinda good i think.


i had to cut the floor a bit to get it to fit. but once i get a bed on it, it will look a lot better




as for the bed i think ill just make a tube frame bed.

Hate to bring up an old thread for the stupidest of reasons, but what is the wheelbase of this body? I have searched everywhere only to find a total length of 9 9/16" bumper to bumper, the height, and the width. Can somebody help me out?

I like your spray booth. Good idea with the cardboard box for small paint jobs.
