Default 1/10 Scratch Built Honolulu City Drift Bus

Been quiet for a minute after my crawler turned drift chassis project. Got heavier into the drifting scene & well…created this monstrosity.
It’s a Sakura D5S RWD chassis that I’ve extended to a 12.3” wheelbase using 2 chassis bottom plates & upper decks.
Body is all made from single pieces of 12”x24” .080 thick styrene sheet. Route sign I took from an Bluetooth LED hat, so I can customize the board to say whatever I want it to.
Lighting courtesy of MyTrickRc DG-1, running lights & their new attack wafer lights as the headlights.
Drift smoke exhaust inverted & stuck thru the roof.
Windows are clear PET sheets I picked up off Amazon & tinted using VHT Niteshades.
Wheels are custom 3D printed except the front barrels which are MST adjustable offset barrels. Wheels themselves are 1.9 replicas of the HPI classic king with a dually twist to it with the center caps & convex front wheel & concave rears.
Shocks are mounted on servos for that “bagged” effect when hard parked.

She’s heavy, but she handles incredibly for what it is.

Yup, it’s definitely cool. I really like the details, the paint and the LED sign. Nice work. Seeing this is a fun way to start the day

The thing I like most about this site is seeing oddball one-of-one scratch builds.

This is like nothing I've ever seen! Like who would suspect a bus for a drift machine? Great work.

Mad props...so much effort and time that doesn't even get seen in a build like this..
Home run! You knocked this one out of the park.

That drift monstrosity is awesome!!!

I really like the bike rack and full lighting setup.

Kinda wild seeing a bus without advertising banners

This reminds me of the rc drift delivery panelvan video, where they're tandem drifting UPS, FedEx, DHL.

This is kinda where I got the idea. I originally wanted to make a panel an but one of the braddahz I drift with suggested I make a bus…like school bus.

But I’ve seen a drifting school bus, so figured I’d do a city bus, but no one sells bodies like that so I tried to make one. Kinda spiraled out of control with the smaller details.

I’ve since added scale stickers & a smaller rear LED display board that throws the followed by MAHALO that just continuously scrolls. Lol

I wouldn't consider that "out of control"...more like "attention to details".

I think I like the description of “attention to detail” better than me thinking I’m just chronic with the things I think of to use.

Na bruddah, this is just Attention to detail, and not going overboard since it's a Drifter.

If you were Chronic:
The engine access panels would have some speaker grill or desk organizer mesh
The doorways would be boxed-in so you could open the door with servo.
Front-end able to "Kneel" to match curb height
Ad banners for like tanning oil or bikinis or local companies
Interior lighting
Passenger seats
Passengers
Graphiti

It's a really sweet bus, and i'm not trying to push you for more. Well, we need MORE Videos!
I love how it looks! Plus it looks to perform really well

This bus is “bagged” essentially. Hahaha. I have both front & rear shocks on servos to lay the body on the ground & tuck wheels.

I actually have added some scale stickers like the handicap, “TheBus”, the www.TheBus.org & a modified “This bus makes wide right turns” that reads as “This bus makes WIDE ASS turns” with a pic of the bus turning both left & right

Motor access panel/vent on the rear driver side has been since covered with window screen like originally planned. Hahahaha

I was gonna do an interior, but considering how heavy it is already, I opted out to still be able to drift. Although the body roll in corner entry & exit is a killah sight to see.

This is one of those projects that’ll never be done cuz of all the possible small details that can be added.

Actually bought a Keanu Reeves doll to repaint as his “Speed” character & either hang him out the driver window or have him being dragged on a creeper cart from behind the bus. Hahahaha

As for the doors, it was in the planning & still is. Hahaha. Just been busy with my SixtyFour Yota mini truck. Hahahaha

Oh yeah, your builds really are my type of crazy!!!

Would the action figure work better 'skitching' on a piece of delrin behind the bus, or snanding on the bumper trying to hold on to sides?

Can't wait to see what else happens
