One of the best build threads I've seen. Great photos, and lots of steps.

I also LOVE that you painted the inside of the body black, after your orange. It just makes the body look more "solid".

Why no decal on the chrome grill? Looks so much better?

Anyway, great chassis build thread.
Cheers,

Thanks for the comments!

I actually forgot to put the grille decal on. Good catch.

i have to agree, my cc01 chassis that i have are some of my favorites... my old pajero dubb'd "the dizzy hampster" is well missed! i may have to build her again.

Necro post alert!

I am building a crawler using this Tamiya body shell. I do not have instructions for the body shell or lighting system. Can someone tell me if the chrome headlight buckets simply go behind the unpainted lexan body - or do the lexan headlights need to be cut out for the chrome headlight buckets? In other words, are the headlight lenses just the clear lexan body?

Yes, the lenses are the body, just left clear. The LED buckets mount to the inside of the body

Anyone using a Sidewinder SV2 in their CC01? Thinking that will be my next upgrade.. something with drag brake.. The coasting of this thing with the stock esc is really not ideal..
