Sounds so easy! I need to do some fenders and interior. I'm not looking forward to it
I haven't done an interior yet, not from scratch anyway, I have modified a bought one though.
It's actually very very easy to do, just use a nicne thin styrene and it bends, cuts and sticks together so easily
I've not done rears yet but I will do soon because I am thinking about making a little toolbox for the back too.
I can't belive I've just come across this that is a nice rig!
Well thanks man, I'm glad you like it
I like reading feedback about my builds... As I'm sure everyone does lol, but I'm pretty new to this crawl and scale world so it's helpful to hear feedback.
After taking the cage off this today to do some bodyshell repairs, I gave it a good wash (cleanish) and decided the rear does look a bit plain, especially when it's clean, so I decided to go back for the netted look.
I've also started work on a toolbox for it, like the Gelande 2, it will be fully functional and locking.
It is a bit bigger than the G2's, so not sure what to carry yet, more than likely just body clips, a few nuts and bolts, maybe some hexes etc... We shall see what will fit!
Well, rather unfortunately, this can't happen.
It's built exactly as I want so far, but I lined it up, and theirs no way of getting the body clips in the rear
So I have put it in the TF2, nobody seems to want to buy it, so figured I might as well carry on my plans for that, which was ultimately going to get a decent sized toolbox as well.
What are you asking for it
It costs too much to post overseas.
I went for a run with this yesterday, I planned on staying out a while so took two packs with me, almost 5 hours later I was back home, really really good run, went somewhere a bit further into the quarry also, it's a never ending cralwers paradise quite frankly, such a great place to play!
I also got a nice panorama view from were I sat for a few minutes and just relaxed, this only shows a very small portion even as a panorama, but you get the idea you'll be best clicking the panorama shot and getting it full sized.Only one breakage from the day and that was a bolt came out from one of the knuckles, no matter, stick another one in and off you go
Had a little run today, it poured down all night and this morning, but it perked right up mid-afternoon so I thought it'd be rude not to go and get the G6 muddy
Did a little video too, you'll have to forgive it's imperfections, it's hard holding a big heavy DLSR while driving the truck and trying not to fall down the banking that was right beside me
I have ordered an action camera though, primarily for my Baja, but it should also serve me well in filming my crawlers and scalers too, so expect more footage in future
Got it muddy, but not to worry, the joys of fully waterproof RC's, chuck it in the bath
Had another play out with this today, performed excellent as always.
Decided to have a little play on some rocks and some crawlery stuff today.
Then at the end I had a play in a sand pit LOL!
That's a very capable rig you have there! I'm jealous I need to get mine finished lol
I aim to get the very most out of all my rigs I enjoy the challenge.
This is hopefully better and more enjoyable than the last lol.
Would appreciate some feedback as well still new to this whole filming malarky.
Also yes I do get my foot in the shot at one point, you'll have to ignore that, and their was nothing I could do about the lads riding the bike, so again, ignore that.
I'm not trying to make my trucks look full size and whatnot, I just want to follow my little adventures round and hopefully you guys enjoy coming along with me
I think you did a good job filming
Thanks a few people have said the video is too long and the music is crap, but in my defense, I hate videos that are like 30 seconds long, it's just annoying lol, and I have a very limited music supply, I can only use royalty free music that Youtube has provided, so it's not breaking the law.
As annoying as it is!
Decided to put the old Axial shocks back on, the Boomerangs are in need of a service, they still feel pretty smooth but they've been submerged so many times and got so dirty, I'm going to rebuild all 4 anyway, can't hurt.
I also just fancied a change and figured now I've well used the droop set up, I'll go back to sprung for as little bit and see what I think.
So, old shocks on for a run today, probably going to give her a full strip down annd service/rebuild as well, everything is looking a bit dirty so going to put all new bearings, oils, greases etc etc...
Had to remove the front bumper as it was fouling the servo horn with the longer shocks on, I quite like it without, might have to keep it like this for a little bit just to switch it up
Here's the videos from today.
Yes, I know some of the lines are the same as the previous one, but that was because I wanted to feel the difference in the shocks... I was also attempting to try different camera angles in the same places to see which I prefer.
These first few videos I've been uploading are mainly just testers, to get everything set up correctly.
Either way, feedback is always very welcome and appreciated and I hope you enjoy!
Not had this out for a little while and my Dad finished work early yesterday so we decided to check out another new area and see if it's any good.
It actually was, rather annoyingly I left my camera in the car but got a few snaps with my phone on the trail.
Few taken at the end with the DSLR in the water.
