    Lancer DF-01 build

    Managed to install the light buckets and LEDs Do u think these MST crawler tires with original 1.9" wheels look better or the buggy wheel / tire combo ?

    Still working on the light bucket / mirror etc. Hopefully, painting can be completed tomorrow. Then I can get started on fixing up the LED lightings.

    MF-01X Assemble !

    Will get my trusty custom CF guy Paul Sims from Australia to cut me some CF shock towers I do not want to make new holes in the Toyota body so decided to make this to get the holes right

    G6-01 ?

    Finally decided a to make a runner. 1) 10.5T BL motor + 100A esc 2) Diffs filled with Tamiya AW grease 3) Yeah racing long span arms 4) Gmade 62mm shocks front & Back. Yeah racing 60mm shocks for the middle (Gmade won't fit) 5) FRP battery plate 6) WR02 CVDs all round Conclusion so far after 1 bash session mostly on outdoor tiles with some light jumping off stair 1) Servo saver is weak. Broke after I had a small accident. Replaced wiith Tamiya high torque unit. Hopefully will hold up 2) 4WS is not really needed. In fact, in stock 4WS configuration, the rear tires will catch the middle ones causing them to be stuck together & exerting extra pressure on the rear servo. Also renders the vehicle to chase its tail 3) If implementing 4WS, rear servo needs to be metal gear. Plastic will strip because of (2). Retard the rear movement to less than 50% travel 4) 10.5T rips and Gmade shocks with higher weight oil (80/60 F/R) jumps like a boss off 3 step of stairs

    Your favourite RC machine???

    This is my favourite at the moment. Brought me back to the hobby after a 5 year layoff.

    What chassis for an off road/rally Mini?

    Take note ~ the mini shell will not fit due to the motor at the rear. The Honda S800 fits though.

    Yes agree not very accurate. I have a thing for 4WD - Hotshot being my first hobby grade all those decades ago

    MF-01X Assemble !

    Like this - get a set of GF-01. Swap out the body for a Suzuki Jimny or a VW bus, then repurpose the Toyota body for the MF-01X. Even, the wifey will be sympathetic to this cause
