Yeah, it handles great. It's actually pretty fast too since it doesn't bounce around anymore. Check out my showroom for pics of it running.
Thanks for the comments guys. Those are stock shocks in combination with old and current CRP coil over kits.
Irreversible mods must be made to the originals but mine kept dripping oil -so I use them without oil. Not sure if I can recommend that kit....
Pajero with mild modification
Some serious hacking of the chassis is required.
TC member Snake Plissken has done similar mods.
Check out his pics.

Montero modified to stock pajero
Thanks for the comments guys! Over the years, I've owned lots of Tamiyas but the 1st generation Pajero has always been my favorite. I actually bought two of these so I can keep one stock and do some mods on the other one :)

How to build a stock pajero from a montero wheelie
Kev, your Camel is probably the best looking Paj here on TC. You should do a video of that thing running!
Addicted2blue, the original Paj is my favorite! They are quite horrible on rough terrain but they're fun to run. Hope your project goes well :)
