Post up a pic with them mounted if you can. Not a huge fan of Integy per-se, but I don't see why it wouldn't work.



One thought: The lower mounts of the shocks in the kit are stepped screws. While that works fine with the stock parts, it won't work with a true 4 link. You need a set of pivot balls to allow the suspension to move freely. Maybe that's what causing problems?


Yeah, I tried it like that by twisting the long links to be at 90į but then the links donít line up with the holes in the chassis, if I then mount it similar to the standard links the shocks canít fully extend, it works if I do the same upside down but then the shocks sit on top of the axle and sits the back way too high. Really stumped!

So I got a bit of time to work on the LUX today. I went down to the local hobby shop and I was fortunate enough for the guy to show me his CC-01, he has the same kit and had the exact same problem. After discussing a few possibilities we decided that the best option was to just grab a hacksaw and, weíll, chop chop...

Works like a charm now!!!


I also got some paint for the mighty lux. Light gunmetal, backed with black, and a flat clear, clear red for tail, lights.

Also got something special for a bit later so, Iíll keep yours posted.

Default CC-01 HILUX build

Finally got around to painting and stickers in the mighty lux!!!
Started with three coats of tamiya light gunmetal and then backed with two coats of black. Then the stickers. Hereís the results.

Thoughts?

That looks great! I really like the lines on that body as well, hard to see them when it is decaled out. Sometimes simple works!

Nice work. I like this better than the throwback Bruiser look.

Default Re: CC-01 HILUX build

So after my little run around at my local park I noticed that the steering was really faint and the left hand wheel was wandering around quiet a bit. I had a brief look and saw the where the yeah racing steering kit mounts on the underside of the chassis was moving. I assumed it was just that the screw had come out so I took it home and didnít think much of it. I got busy so it sat for a week or so before I got to disassembly to fix the issue. But when I pulled it apart I discovered that one of the bearings had completely collapsed and blown to pieces. Has anyone had this happen to the yeah racing kit? And can you buy that particular bearing??? Please help.

I am now on my third set of aluminum steering for the CC01. The first I used was the GPM which was an ultimate let down. The aluminum material is too soft and makes a lot of play. The screws also keeps on loosening every few steer turns and eventually comes off. The second was the Xtra Speed which wasn't really an upgrade because it's just an aluminum version of the stock with no ball bearings at all and the play was just as lousy as the stock plastic one. This being the third by Hot Racing. Looks and steers better.




I was choosing between the YR and the HR but went with the later.

I heard that the GPM kit was useless for the same reasons that you listed and that the HR or the YR was the way to go. Which is why i did what I did. But I havenít heard of anybody having the same problem as me with the bearing collapsing. Maybe I just got a dud.

Default CC-01 HILUX build

So I havenít driven the lux in a while because well... after making some steering repairs I was resetting the end points and I kinda over did it and snapped off the post where the steering rack mounts to the chassis. Letís fix it!!!


Bit of Tarzan grip and this Selleys knead it should do this trick !



Loaded up on the Tarzan grip to hold it then used the putty stuff to shape around it and support it. This knead it stuff is awesome, you mix it up then itís pliable like clay for a couple of minutes, then an hour later itís rock hard and you can drill and sand it!!! Iím also going to use a longer screw so that it goes through the broken piece and the chassis. Be interesting to see how this holds up, should give it a coat of paint tomorrow maybe

Had the same issue and did the same thing. Still holding after a couple of months. Also had to do it to 2 screws holding the skid plate. Did buy a new chassis just in case but as I have modified this one a lot I didn't want to swap it over and redo all the work.
