    so im new to posting on the rc sparks forum but i suppose there is a first time for everything.

    i have been into rc for a few years and recently purchased a Axial scx10 honcho, i did my research because i am a 4wd nut and wanted something i can make look like one of my cars i hope to purchase in the future the toyota landcruiser after about 2 weeks of looking, found nothing to resemble the landcruiser so i decided i would make a custom rig i purchased a fair bit of gear from Rc4wd and all over the place im still adding to it as i go along but here is what i got going on so

    Put your pic's in photobucket,then when you go into your library you will see a star type image in the upper right hand corner.When you put your courser over that a link list will appear.Go to the bottom link and click on that,than come back to your thread and right click and past.Give it a shot i will be on line for awhile.

    so after i started putting the body together i thought that you dont see many tray back honchos going around so instead of putting the rc4wd mojave body onto my rig i decided i would fabricate my own tray to go with the front cab of the mojve body, he are some pictures of the build in progress.

    photo of it in the dark.

    the truck is heavey and it compresses the shocks so im getting new ones with stiffer springs but also getting a dinky hitch and some other bit and peices,

    there is one this i would like to make a tralier but im not sure how to go about it because i want to get an scx10 kit but turn it into a low lux with actual working airbags (servos) for thous of you who dont know what that is you google it its hard to miss,

    i would be fine with building a trailer but what i want to know is how to do the axles and leaf springs? can you buy alredy made kits that have the brackets and springs. please let me know
