Talking cartronicshn toyato

Hey guys i am starting a very slow build thread on the hg p407, known as the bruiser clone. So far i can report the truck worked flawlessly out of the box, smooth shifting, crappy steering as designed, very quiet tranny. I am going to lock the diffs, change the steering servo to the front of the chassis as my og hilux is. Pics in a bit not much to show just yet.

Nice to see you building and posting. Do you have any upgrades planned or will you keeping it mostly stock?

Putting the OG back to stock is probably a good idea. A local guy did that and turned his OG in to a shelf queen once it was re-issued.

I've been contemplating putting my OG bruiser body and chassis back together with the TLT axles and R2 trans just for sentimental value. It is my oldest build that I still own.

so like always a small update every 3 months, i have driven it around for a while with no breakage, i have removed the middle leaf at each corner to get a little more flex, hex adapters are on their way, and i have one wheel screw stripped and also the grub screw on the front tranny shaft is stripped, i will got to the hardware store and buy one of those stripped screw drill bits and post up later tomorrow......
