Exclamation New Blog - Vaterra Ascender – K5 Blazer to K10 Pickup Conversion


Nothing can change the overall look of your R/C vehicle more than a new body set. That is one of the great things about this hobby! You can completely change the look of your R/C car or truck in no time with option parts like wheels, tires, bumpers, lights, etc. Changing out the body, on the other hand, gives you a completely new look if that is what you are after. In this article we are going to convert our Vaterra Chevy K5 Blazer kit into a custom rock crawling truck/buggy, or “truggy” as some like to call them. This conversion does require quite a bit more effort than just swapping out the body though. We will be shortening the the wheelbase down from 314mm (12.3 inches) to 290mm (11.4 inches) as required to fit the new body. In order to complete this conversion we will be utilizing Vaterra’s Chevy K10 Cab and Roll Cage set that we painted in a previous blog which can be seen here. Let’s see what it takes to make the switch! Read more...
