CC01 - in memory of my dad.

Recommended Posts

This was my late father's CC01 kit which he drove just for bashing. My brother's and I got our RC genes from our dad. He loved RCs especially nitro boat racing as well as off-roaders. Here's a 23 year kit that I am slowly rebuilding and modifying. I will eventually strip off the paint and repaint the body again. Will also add lights and an all waterproof electronics (BL ESC & motor, 20kg servo and RX) so I can drive this baby on mud and water too.

So far here's what I've done:

- Full ball bearings (rubber sealed type)

- Suspension mod (front and rear) and shock upgrade. Will still do some tweaking

Future changes: 

- aluminum steering assembly

- metal gears

- new set of tires (will still use the same wheels)

- add LED lights (headlights, fog lamps and tail) 

- repaint the entire body

- new drive shafts

- waterproof BL ESC and motor

- 21.8kg waterproof servo

- waterrpoof RX

- aluminum steering rods

No turning back. Created holes to fit the 90mm shocks.

That's great.  It's always good to cherish a car with history and CC01s often seem to have history!  I hope it gives you lots more good new memories as well as carrying some good old ones :)

Very nice.  I got my RC genes from my father as well.  We still hit the trails every weekend we can get out and it's a blast.  Build is looking good, will be nice to see the finished product.

The wheels/tires combo and aluminum hex hub extender (12mm) arrived today. Also did some re-adjustments in the front shock tower. Drilled new holes for harder setting and filled the dampers with hard silicon oil.

I like the screw/nut details. Unfortunately, there are only five studs. Should be six for the Pajero. But who can complain, this wheel/tires set only cost $15.

Change the stock plastic wheel hex (6mm) to aluminum (12mm).

Here's how she stands now...

Just the right offset I want. Not too wide.

New holes drilled on the DIY carbon fiber shock tower for stiffer suspension.
