Default My late dad's CC01 re-build

Hello from MNL!

Here's a 23 year old kit of my dad that I am re-building. It was left in a storage at my parents house since my dad passsed away in 2003. Last year, I picked it up when I decided to get back to RCing and re-build it.

Here it was when I got it from the storage





First was upgrade the suspension with new 100mm shocks



Rear:





Front: I created a new shock tower and made holes on the chassis to accommodate the 100mm shocks...













Then next was replaced all plastic bushings with rubber sealed bearings

Ordered (arrived yesterday) a PowerHD digital waterproof 20kg servo ($22) and some extra dogbones (4 pcs for $3)









I have also installed a new Radiolink RX. Ordered a brushed 60A brushed ESC and 27T & 55T motors yesterday. Should be here by next week (April 24-29).

Looks great. Good idea for fitting the longer shocks. Your dad would be proud. Glad to see it rebuilt rather than left and forgotten. Hope you enjoy using it.

Thanks! I've always wanted to set up a crawler/rally type of off-roader and I remembered that this kit was still at my parents' house (along with others, FF01, M-01, nitro boats, etc) and decided to get it and rebuild it instead of buying a new (or used) kit.
