Ebay, usually always suggests the stock/upgrade parts when you type in your model #, scale, etc

Is this still an active thread? I am curious to see if anybody would like to mentor me on my first 1/10 crawler build. I donít know much about comps or classes and am trying to piece together something I can trail run and rock crawl on some comp. sized obstacles. This is going to be a 1.9 scaled fun truck, that if I can swap some parts out, could run in competition in the future. This build will be based on the compatibility of the SCX10.2/ Enduro/ VS-410 platform. I have an idea of what I want and parts I want but no one to really bounce ideas around with. Iíve tried with other crawler groups but too many ideas get thrown out and weeding through and finding subjective suggestions is problematic, it seems everybody is a spokesman for a brand these days and when I ask questions about modding for fitment or customizing something I am either met with blank stares or questions of why I would do that.I am also not too worried about scale realism but also not interested in running a bodyless chassis like some comp crawlers. I am in no way inexperienced but would like some tips, mods, and insight from someone who has been where I am and is now a competent builder who could teach me a few things. I have built and rebuilt a half dozen micro crawlers so I have an ok understanding of whatís what. Iíve also built and heavily modified a kit Yeti and am in the process of a resto- mod of a 10+ year old Losi. I also run a 1/10 basher that is undergoing heavy mods as well.

Welcome to the forum.

If you post in it, it becomes active.

But the newbie thread is not where I would ask about custom builds. You should start your own threads. Specific to a single issue or a build thread. I don't personally watch build threads myself. Mostly I just troll electronics.

Theoretically I would say a build thread in the scx10 section is where to post but I don't know how active it is.

Where the general area probably gets more views.

Best bet in my opinion is to check with what ever resources you can find to conect with a local group of Rock crawlers in person. Your local hobby shop might know of one.

Thanks voodoo, I have talked to my local group. I have also been in contact with about 2 dozen people about my build and looking for advice.

You can start a thread in the 1.9 Scale Rig section and it will runs it's course. I'm sure people will jump in if you ask a question, but sometimes it might take a while until the right person to answer, notices your thread.


I've done some part scale - part custom builds myself and understand your feelings on the matter. I'm not that old in the hobby, but people seem to prefer the readily available options nowadays.


There's a great thread somewhere in this forum, from back in the day, when people were actually making their own scale items and a lot of customization was going on in the hobby. Now almost everything is 2 clicks away.
