The CR01 isn't one of my favorite rigs due to the fact that the chassis is just plain ugly, but yours is an exception. I love this rig

I know exactly what you mean. I own other crawlers, but someting about Tamiya's CR01 keeps me loving it. its the only RC that I seem to always use. its definitely my favorite in my collection of RCs.

Here is mine below (3 body Styles):

Very nice pictures. I solved the drive shaft problem on mine by adapting some old T-Maxx drive shafts to fit on it.

Nice pics! I just saw you live in Ewa Beach. My best friend Matt lives there too, he's in the Navy. He's been there for about a year now.

Installed the 3R winch last night. I just bought a King Kong hook from RC4WD to replace the jewelery clasp on there now. Unfortunately, my DX3.0 3rd channel will not control the winch correctly because its only 2 position. It would only got forward and backward with no stop position. So I will use it with the manual control for now.

The mount is attached to the frame cross member then it it fitted into a slot on the back of the bumper for support up there.


I had to put some spacers under the winch to level it out and get it at the right height behind the bumper.


The mount goes down then back up again so it can clear the FJ body








Now to go out and try and get stuck somewhere.

King Kong hook replaces the jewelry clasp. This is the medium size one in black chrome.

My servo actuated switch has also been mounted (pics to come)

winch control figured out. Since the 3rd channel couldnt directly control the winch properly, this will. Plugged into the 3rd channel is a Hitec HS-55 which now swings and taps the button on the winch control. Its all held by a little aluminum mount I made and mounted to the battery hold down. I ran all the wires along the little channels on the hold down to keep them neat.

Swapped out the nylon line for more realistic cable.

r2jkustoms pull-pal anchor. Top notch quality, almost too nice to use.



It works with the medium King Kong hook. That is a relief, on the site I think it says its made for the small one.






Some scale r2jkustoms decals came with it

yes. I took it out with my TrakPower race pack, I had like 2:06 of run time! Got to use the pull pall quite a bit. I could winch the rig up some line that I would normally roll over backwards on or just sit and spin tires.
