Another CC01 build, I've been fascinated with these little trucks since I first cracked open my XC01 Jeep back in the 90's. Got hold of a Tamiya Izuzu Amigo body in a trade that was a little worse for wear. Gladly traded a new Pajero shell for it as I like the look, and it's something different. I figured since it was already fairly beat, it would be a fine body to take out on the woods and trail worry free! I was debating some sort of solid axle rig, but in the end it was right at home on a CC01 chassis where the good Lord intended. I had one here I was messing with converting over to an HPI suspension, and after some wheelbase adjustments, it dropped right on. It had a 3:1 reduction and Tamiya Xacto mini motor ready to go - best combo out there for a trail ready CC chassis. I also used some lead fishing wire to line the chassis rails to add some weight down low. Rear suspension started with some modified Axial Wraith brackets to angle the shocks for a bit more travel. Front is modified with some HPI parts..more on that later. A look at the bottom. Junfac sliders and some others odds and ends The body was missing the rear section, so I added some cross bars and mesh to fill it in. A modified Dingo interior is also velcro'd in to fill in the hole. The PO of this body used a lighter apparently to melt and flare out the wheel wells. They were (are) a wavy mess on all for corners...I started sanding down to get them close, and eventually I'll fill a bit so they are somewhat straight. The orange paint has to go, so there's a lot of bodywork in the future for this truck. Painted the details on the grill and removed the front bumper as it was cracked and pretty much an eyesore. Now has a much more appropriate off road front end!
Picked up another New Bright Discovery shell few weeks ago and set about stripping, prep and primered....on to colour choice Wasn't sure which way to go until I saw my friends Pajero so choice made Going to keep this pretty scale looking with some new SDI tyres added
Regretfully I have to sell my Discovery LR3 Chassis is used but maintained, front and rear diffs locked, front brick removed with custom front, 4 link suspension, rear shocks moved inward for better flex, extended prop shaft, hobbyking waterproof servo, Novak terra claw motor. Electrics cased in a sealed box for waterproofing (you will need to reseal, silicon sealer works great) Body is a new bright discovery, custom made headlights, clear windscreen and front windows removed (can fit clear if required) Wheels are 5 spoke tamiya with fastrax kongs I can include a tamiya teu-101bk esc (but would recommend getting a quikrun 1060 as its a great crawler esc) and an orange gr300 2.4ghz rx nice trail rig and will perform better than a standard CC01. for the record if I was keeping it I'd buy a junfac or other extended prop. selling only as I haven't room and just started another build Price £100 inc postage and PayPal post to UK only, no overseas shipping, any questions please PM me
Couple of years ago I got a cc01 with a Range Rover Classic shell, had a few runs and used the chassis for my now G4 discovery. Since then the shell has gathered dust and almost threw it away in a pre Christmas clear out, put in the loft until now. Removed from hibernation this morning and couldn't help thinking....I need another project! so..good lady out for the day and a bit of free time, shell before I begin Bit bruised and a colour I wasn't pleased with. Browsed range rover classic pics and paint shopping tomorrow......
