I get a Big Bear off from ebay - complete and fully ridable - so I give it a try. Horror!! Maybe when this car came out in the 80´th it was state of the art, but today we have so much nice tuning parts like oil dampers, so I thought I´ll give it a try and 'update' the chassis to make it really ridable.
First, all Marui monster chassis owners will know what I´m talking about, the front tires rub, when steering left or right, to the battery compartment.
The battery lies flat in the compartment so I tilt it to the small side and glue some PS material in front of the battery. Then I saw the chassis compartment away and glue some more PS material in place.
Next I build some front damper stays out of Styren and epoxy glued them to the chassis.
The front suspension build up to give space for some ballconectors.
I will use in the front
Tamiya CVA Super Mini Shock Unit (50746)
and for the back
Tamiya CVA Mini Shock Unit Set II (50519)
More pictures soon when I find the time to make them - chassis is already painted black.
Hope you like my idea.
