This was a fairly simple project, my first XC hybrid. I started with a chassis from a new built Toureag. The body is from a Clodbuster, using the older style grill (not the 4x4x4 grill). I used auto body filler to fill up the hole in the hood where the blower is supposed to go. I made a mount out of brass stock to mount the front bumper to the chassis. The body was painted with Tamiya's metallic blue, with the wheels painted with Tamiya's gunship grey (I think?). I had to stretch the wheelbase of the chassis to fit the body. To do this I cut the lower links in half and extended them with pieces of brass stock. The upper links were made from turnbuckles and 6mm ball ends. Overall I'm very pleased how this one turned out. I've installed an Integy 55T lathe motor, Tamiya ESC, full ball bearings, light kit, and have locked both diffs. See my showroom for some action shots.
