Here are a few pics... The paint is not perfect and I had to glob on the glue for certain parts but I wanted it to be functional not just pretty.

Hope you all like it and feel free to comment!

The accessories are from Phoenix, just do an online search for "1/24 scale accessories"

you should add lower links to the front aswell. it looks like you got some axle wrap in the front.

Re: TheBakedBeans: Scaler '93 Montero !with VIDEO!

Re: TheBakedBeans: Scaler '93 Montero !with VIDEO!
 
yeah 4 total links

Re: TheBakedBeans: Scaler '93 Montero !with VIDEO!
 
Yep, I agree. You all beat me to it :ror:

I am working on some bent links for the front and will bend the links in the back for a total of 4 links. There isn't enough room for 4 in front and 4 in back even if i wanted to.

I'm also trying to soften the suspension. Possibly taking out the leafs and putting some shocks in???:???: I'm not sure... any thoughts??

Shocks are extremely long and you would lose your scale height. that and you would have to run a 4 link. you might want to experiment with a 4 link and springs? http://www.scale4x4rc.org/forums/att...1&d=1314149588
