Nothing extreme. Just oredered a Tamiya F150 race truck (TA02 chassis). Wanted to have something to play around with between crawling with a little speed to it. I'll post pics when it comes in.

hey there

I am looking for the same thing and have been cruising Ebay for a Hummer (same chassis I think) or a CC-01(touareg, Pajero or Wrangler).

If you get one going, maybe we can do a trail run at a comp. My other thought was just to build a small truck using TLT axles and leaving the stock tires or getting 1,9s.

I look forward to seeing it when you get your truck.

That would be cool to get a few 1.9's going. BigRed is going to get one too. The TLT axle is a good idea Renoir. I've read on RCC that the Touareg was a bit more top heavy and got hung up a little easier because of the longer wheelbase but climbs a little better. So I chose the F150. Plus I like the wheel/tire combo on it better than the others. Very Happy

After seeing the 1.9's in Augusta I have wanted to build one. If your going for a true scale looking trail rig 1.9 is the way to go. I have plans for a 1.9 on a cc-01 chassis. I would like to have a hard body on top. Just have not decided what one yet. May go with the fj body since they can be had pretty cheap.

In a way I like the touareg chassis better because it has fender wells to keep the crud out and has a solid rear axle. The Hummer has open wells and independent rear susp. I guess they all have their pros and cons. Anyone one of them would be fun.

Finally got it today. It even came with an ESC and a 540 motor. Had to try the wheels on for size. They are 12mm hex too. I think I'm going to build it unlocked for now and then lock it later on. I would like it to be unlocked when I wanted. It has the spider gear setup in the front but the rear is different. Maybe I'll try to lock it with putty or something. More pics later.

Just need some paint now. Look at that articulation. Quick question. I have a batt. pack from Brandon and the cells are soldered side by side. Can I assemble the pack like a standard stick pack. End to end. That's the only way the batt. will fit in the chassis without cutting on it and I don't want to do that. How do you solder the cells or do they just rest against each other? Thanks.

hey Scruff;

Rather then rebuilding Brandons pack, go to Radio Shack, they sell GP3300 packs that are as good as any high end manufacturers club packs.

I have done a direct comparison in two identical Novak BL pedes with a Fussion Club pack (50ish) to the Radio Shack GP 3300 (25) and the radio Shack pack was a touch more punchy and had a touch longer run times.

And for the $25 its likely not worth the time and energy to make a stick pack.

If you do feel the need to make a stick pack, you need to solder the cells side by side with a plyable battery bar and once you have them solderred you stuff them into a tube and then you need to buy shrink wrap and the ends to do it properly.

Good luck
