Default My FJ40 CR-01 Build

Hello all. I'm new here and would like to introduce myself and share some pictures of my new CR-01.

The build went pretty smoothly with the exception of the mistake in the manual which tells you to install the rear shocks in such a way that will limit the rear suspension travel way too much. I fixed it as per the tips I found on this site and all is well!

I just have to paint the body now and will be set. I'm very happy with this kit. It is stock for now.

I've uploaded some pics here:

Thanks. I was "crawling" my children's slide. I built it with gear I had on hand. It's the first RC I've built in some time. Now that I'm back in the game, I plan to add a Novak brushless setup and a worthy steering servo. I'd like to get the aluminum shocks Tamiya has announced as well. These, mostly for show of course.

I've got a couple of other Tamiya kits that I need to build but that's another story

Tamiya did a great job on the kit, I had the opportunity to drive one and it was impressive for being right out of the box.
