    Cool! So are the axles comparable width to the RC4WD Yotas? Looks like the tires tuck up nicely under the Hilux body.

    Looking forward to seeing what you do with the body!

    Haha! I'm sure you're going to need them ;)

    I was meaning I can't wait to see what you do with the Willys body ... the Hilux I've seen before and it looks awesome!

    Cool to hear that you're thinking you'll get one for yourself though!

    I think the Toyota must get a chassis again it's a shame that it's in a box somewhere in my barn .

    Today i have been building and painting .
    First i painted the bady black with Tamiya lexaan paint :
