I have been gathering some parts for a new build. I wanted to build a 1.9 rig. Not really a full blown scale truck. Instead more of a trail rig. Something that is scale appearing but still capable and fun to drive.

Most of the parts will be from an Axial AX10, axle, tranny, etc.
1.9 Rock crushers on HPI wheels
Custom chassis similar to the X-trail
Proline blazer body

So here is my pile of junk.


And of course a High lift jack made out of styrene.

It is the delrin tester version. It is pretty flimsy.

Well it is in my toolbox in Statesville. I will bring it home after the 1st when I go back. Not sure what I paid for it.

It's rolling, After building it up and stripping it down 3 times. I just wasn't happy with the way the link geometry was coming out. Barring some minor tweaks I think I have it the way I want it. That may change after it is run. Will have to see how it goes.

The chassis is based off of the X-trail short prototype. I dropped the lower portion of the chassis. So the tranny and lower link mounting points are lower. That helped the link and drive line angles. Also helped get the CG down a bit.









I am sure the scale police will bust me on this truck. But oh well, It is built as a capable scale truck. Not the most realistic scale truck you will find. But it should be fun to drive.

Time to spend some more money. I need a esc, plan on getting the Novak crawler. Also need a servo and some other misc items. Got these on a slow boat coming my way. http://www.rcmart.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=35_899&products_id=25567

Looks good. Do you know if the pick-up truck body is the same wheel base as the blazer.

I think the short bed might be. They make a long and a short. The Blazer body is right at 11".
