    That's a cool body, never seen it before! Looks like it has good grip.

    Thanks! Yep very alive... i kind of like this CC01 Isuzu Mu... i don't know why... :)

    Now more of it:
    I removed the and reposicionated the support for the 2 links on the rear...to become flat to the belly...

    [​IMG]
    -Photo shows only the removed part... then i "epoxy" it and they sit lower on chassis...not sticking to much out to it the ground like before..


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    After that, i grab some ears :)


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    Then went for the snorkel...

    [​IMG]

    Changed the "bushings" to metal bearings... what a diference! :)
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    -See the white bushing? Goodbye!


    [​IMG]
    -Metal!


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    -Then got the rear diff out, clean and put the bearings where it belongs!


    [​IMG]
    -Opened the front diff, which was locked with screws... to screw the diff....i put some heavy oil...but later will put plasticine (putty).

    After that put a el "cheapo" motor that works...cause the one included had not serviçe brush's and have not ball bearings! And i will use a HW 1080 esc in the future. The GOLLRC esc has not a strong BEC for my leds... :)

    [​IMG]


    Then went trailing, to the forest.... :)
