Talking Its all Unimogers fault, Now finished 5/2

I blame the fact that I now have another tlt on Ben j/k with ya Ben A while back I had gotten a hilux body/chassis and Ben inquired what I was doing with it, Well I decided that id rather have some a little bit more usable that wouldnt require as much time and effort ( considering I have 97 million other projects going on ) so we did a little swap and this is what I ended up with...A badass CJ 8 scrambler











This is my 1st comp style rig, I wanted something scale but much more capable as far crawling goes and what better way then with a bulu 2 I havent had much time to work on it, I had my stp dad mount the body for me( he is good as that stuff, and I cant afford to mess is up) and I install a Tekin 2 in it so far. Hopefully ill have it running by 2nite

Specs...

-Bulu 2
maxx links
-non narrowed Moabs with cut foams and BBS yes thats right they are not narrowed and there wont be any wideners either...you will see why soon enough
-black wheels with Bens rock rings which are AWESOME by the way
-locked, shaved tlt axles with bearings
-locked Pede trans
-12 tooth 87 tooth gearing
-cj-8 body painted on the outside in NEW conditon
-Tekin rebel 2
-JR 590z servo
-Traxxas tq 3 radio...for now untill I can get another sysnthesized jr reciever
-Tmaxx shocks

Enjoy, also if you guys have any pointers on setting these things up, let me know, I am in new to the comp rigs although it seemed pretty damn good right out of the box Thanx again Ben, I hope you like the lux as much as I like the cj

looks really good Mike, I tried to set it up as best I could for you, so you could just run it as is. I would pre-load the left rear shock a little to battle the mild torque twist, other than that it should be good to go. That body looks awesome on there.

Correct me if I am wrong. Isn't that a Bulu and not a Bulu 2?
I could be totally wrong. lol

Well I finished up the CJ last night, everything is working and working great, I put an even better servo on the front, good ol' hitec . Only thing I dont really like is that reverse delay with the Tekin, I have it set to the 0-5 second mode but it seems closer to 5 then anything Other then it should be a great rig. Here are a few poser shots, showing off the flex and flat fendered, I also added some cool diamond plate





check out that custom built 2/3 cell pack nice and small and with 1200 capacity and a 55 turn lathe I should get some reasonable run times







Well thats about it for this build untill I get to run it, hopefully Ill get to take it to "the rock" and give it all its got in the next weekend or 2

I also worked on the Trekker last night Yea I pulled it off the back burner and mounted up the rear shocks and tonight I am going to make the brackets for the trans mount so then they trans will be mounted. After that Ill start the tube work

Looks good Mike! Is that body painted on the outside? If not that is a pretty cool color, very flat! Also I have had quite a few setups with the bulu chassis, and I must admit they work best running low with some droop.

Also you are going to love that battery, I loved the small cells so much I just ordered another pack from cheapbatterypacks.com with their new 1400 intellects. Cant wait to use it

Brandon, the truck is painted on the outside, and its definitely a cool realistic color, only thing its missing is the "golden Eagle" across the hood! It probably a 1/4 inch of droop with the losi yellow and white spring combo, It should do pretty well i think. I cant wait to really use it
