Default MST CFX Bronco, my take on this rig and fisrt biuld.

I thought the MST CFX chassis would be a good first time build.
So let it begin.

First let me say sorry for such bad pics, I hope to take more time in the future and future builds.

1.
I have already put most of the chassis together so wont boar you with this.
I got in some aluminum shock mounts and tried them out. I didn't like them and gave them to my friend and went back to the stock kit mounts.

I didn't wont you guys to see all the crap on my build table.

I got a killer body interior for the build, but it was to wide and the frame was backward to the scale Bronco. So I cut it up and reversed the tube frame. I have to figure out how to build the rear of the frame now and that's where I am at.

Awesome build so far! I love the tire and wheel combination and they go perfect with that Bronco body!

Thanks guys.
I seen these Mini-Mag 5Lug 5Slot Beadlock on GCM vid u-tube and thought they would just fit the bill.

I had a chance to do a little more work. My friend took my aluminum sheet and created a set of right and left floor panels that mount/bolt to the frame rails .

OK this is going to be freaking awesome! I can't wait to see it completed.

Don't worry about the messy workbench, unless you have something illegal on there. Mine looks the same and I post photos.

Diggin' the mag wheels!! Going to look great completed! I've been debating the CFX-w chassis, but something about the shorter CFX makes me want to get another!
Mainly as MST have brought out a Jimny shell for it....

it might take less time to clean your bench than it does to alter all these images!

Looks good. Digging the tire/wheel combo...

Some work done.

1. The steering rod bushing and plate are finished.

2. Also moved shock towers to leaned back a set of new 80mm rc4wd shocks.

3. Made the steering cross rod or I should say steering cross plate its mounted from the back top of axil.
