    Hey friends
    I'm going to build my own Toyota Hilux.
    Next week I will get some aluminum parts for the chassis.

    I will make it 2wd with a RC4WD rear axle.

    So I have got a nice project and I will post some pics after I started the buildin.

    nice greetings from Austria xD

    Next Wednesday or Thursday I will get the parts for the chassis.
    When I have finished the chassis I'm going to buy a RC4WD rear axle.

    I just mean that most scale trucks like the SCX10 and Trail Finder 2 are four wheel drive! Not two wheel drive like you are going to make! :)

    Look forward to it. Im going to be starting one here in awhile on a TF chassis. I have a built in dig on the tranny so I can run it RWD flick a switch and then put it into 4wd. That is something you might want to consider doing as well if you can as it is something that will help out on the trails.

    Just in case you ask what tranny/dig I am using I am not sure. Its already on the chassis but RC4WD does sell stuff like that which is where it came from.
