That truly looks amazing!!! What a classy Rig. Looks GOOD sitting next to the Blazing Blazer too. I HAD one in 1984...... And STILL kick myself for letting it go.
Best of luck with it - and get the Tires dirty!!!

Those Samix parts look great, the high clearance titanium links are very nice, brass portal covers too! Big little Oly is looking great!

Couple more shots before the event this weekend. Got in some goodies from the Scale King at Exclusive RC and had to add them in.



Finishing the cage in blue like the Baja 1000 Big Oly Bronco set it over the top for me.

Qualified 8th and Finished 5th at Motorama 2018 Scale Nationals against 53 of the best drivers! I look forward to running this rig all season from Class 2 events to G6’s and more!

Hey man,
Awesome build, just a couple of questions. Can you show a couple pics of how you mounted the winch up front and was your Wertymade stinger pre built with a fairlead? I need to figure out how to run a winch on my rig and I am running the same bumper up front.

Really nicely done. The funny thing about all this is that you basically did what I've been planning to do with my 2nd CFX-W kit. I've also got the 66 bronco body lined up and 300mm Samix links. Planning on getting the rest of the Samix stuff now.

You went all out and did 4WS too!

I actually used a piece of lexan to mount the winch through the stock bumper plate. I mounted the fairlead myself and cut the slot with a dremel cutoff wheel.

Small update before taking it to Blue Rocks G6.
Not much but did add lights to the body’s factory locations and inner fender wells. Also cleaned up some of the electrics too.


More to add soon!
