I finally got my gaz66 and the frame rails and body honestly aren't bad, nor are the tires, but the motor and stock "servo" need to go.
Was yours a RTR or kit? I hear the RTR servos are proprietary.

Not only have i heard they are proprietary, they are also not proportional iirc.

Yeah, I read that too. Also the mechanism doesn't allow the wheels to turn fully left and right up to the hubs' limits.

It looks like the Rc4wd 1/18 Yota II axles would fit. Or just buying the 1/18 Gelande and putting the Yota body on it.

No bueno.

The 1/18 Gelande axles are 89mm pin to pin or 92.2mm hex to hex and it has a 130mm wheelbase.

Mine showed up at the door yesterday (ordered from gearbest). Body is awesome the rest as you know is junk. I just need to source a chassis and make up my mind on which axles to use. I have a set of Losi MRC axles or I could snag the one out of my GeoII. Any ideas on a chassis?

Welp, the $8 C14 RTR from ebay apparently was not legitimate. I'm shocked, SHOCKED I say

This morning I received an eBay message that the seller got booted off ebay. After that I put in a request for a tracking number because the order showed as shipped. A few minutes later ebay refunded me instead, so that's the end of that.

Looking at the other ebay listings, I think there's a chance that the ones selling for $10.XX could be legitimate. One of those sellers received a positive feedback for the sale of a C14. I may take a shot at that one.

Well, My $8.49 (Green) has been marked shipped. Estimated delivery Thursday, Feb 1, 2018 - Wednesday, Mar 14, 2018
That is a mighty big shipping window.
maybe they are hoping I'll forget about it by then?

My $32 (yellow) has also been marked shipped. Thursday, Jan 25, 2018 - Monday, Feb 12, 2018

I ordered different colors so I could tell them apart If and when they arrive.

^^^Yes, probably

One of the main reasons I'm so tempted by these cheap ebay listings is because the kit I ordered from Gearbest is taking FOREVER to get here. (It's not actually late yet, I just can't wait to get my hands on one!) Has anyone in the USA received a kit version yet? It seems like people are mostly talking about RTRs.

So no one has ID'd some replacement axles yet? The gelande is much too small, and the mrc is FAR too wide.

I just got my kit today. Its pretty much as reported, looks great, cheap build and fit. A quick comparision looks like Venom Mini Giant axles are a very close fit. I have two VMGs so may see if the axles would be a fairly easy mod. The kit tires also seem pretty darn soft. I think they should work fine. I just need to figure the best place to mount the esc and receiver, might be able to tuck them in with battery. Anyone have pics of where they put the electronics?

I. Could. Not. Resist. Anymore.

I pulled the trigger on a kit at gearbest.

I feel much better now

Nice find! Any data available?

I plan on going the "N20"-route.

Has anybody tried the 1/18 punisher shafts from the RC4WD 1/18 Gelande?
