Anyone who's looked at my showroom knows I like Wild Willy and his various variants. For a while I've been wanting to build a Willy 4x4 but was a bit stuck on which chassis to use. I tried a TL01, didn't like it. TA01/02? Nope, too much gap between chassis and body. Then I spotted a Max Climber for reasonable money. A quick check showed the wheel base and width are almost identical to a WW2 so I duly clicked the ominous 'Buy it now' button. When it arrived it was a bit grubby but otherwise good. No bearings though, so I stripped it, cleaned everything and rebuilt with new ballbearings, carbon fibre chassis plates, stainless hex bolts, Topcad shocks and other bits of bling. Using the stock battery placement would have jacked the body way up so I binned it and built a new battery box at the rear. It fits inside the shell - just! The body has been modded as well. Passenger, scratch built seat etc. The tools are also scratch built and mounted with M2 hex bolts.So here it is, hope you like it... Compared to my lowered, narrowed WW2 Flex.. Family shot cheers,Rob
