I got some progress done yesterday but nothing today, had to work on wifeys car instead.


After extensive mock ups and measureing I trimmed the rear fender wheel a bit and it seems the wheel base is now perfect. Once I get it back to gether with tires mounted it will dictate weither more trimmimg will be needed, I ideally want to mount the body low as possible for scale realsim and COG purposes.
Stock mods consist of 180ing the trans and swapping motors wires for spin direction, I also made some finish panels for the sides of the chassis to keep the motor/trans hidden. For mounting the body I'm going to try small rare earth magnets that my friend "Big Fluffy" picked up for me. I will have more progress and pics tomorrow !

Still have a couple things to do yet and a little paint work befor it's 100% complete.
I removed all the unneeded screws and CA'd everything, the screws weight just short of 6 grams. I however prob added all that and more back on with the styrene,magnets and a few screws. Still have to fine tunes the F&R wheel wells, waiting till I get the new tires mounted.
I like the look without the plastic BL rings, looks clean and more factory/scale ?

Here's a short video showing the strenth of these little Rare Earth Magnets are from HaborFreight and Tool.

OK, Just finished the........... LED's !
The LED's have their own seperate plug that on the battery in of the ESC so they are not on all the time. A lot of work had to be done to make them fit in this tiny assed trucks headlight bezels. I also flat blacked the entire inside for a much cleaner look. Last thing is the tires which I might do tonight ?

Here's a very short video showing the LED's with the light low, they are running on the stock 220mah 4.8 NiMH so with a 2s pack they should mondo bright !

Haven't found it like that yet like talking about it! Plus there are not even a hand full of crawlers or scalers near me to get out and show off a lil. Have to drive 3+ hours or so to go where they do scale and crawl. I do have my personal test spot in my yard plus a nice duck off that is about a block from my house that I will start taking my flex shot pictures at!

Hey no problem my friend, when I work on other peoples things for $ or trades my level of attention & detail is as if I'm working on my own stuff.

You take great care of us at BARCO and my efforts on your FJ is ust a show of appreciation, I'm glad your happy with everything I did.
