    micro jeep

    so i scored another micro. came with 2 bodies. the black chevy was the body that the previous owner was using. i decided to go with the jeep body. when i took the chevy body off i found that the front end was pretty much broken off. (2nd pic you can see what i mean) i got some more 2-56 threaded rod and will makes some new links. its running a T-Pro MG90S servo. esc/rx still stock. i may try the big block mod on this one as there is plenty of room for the motor and a new esc and rx.. we'll see'. also, im gonna make a scale chassis. this will be a slow build as i have the 2.2, 1.9, and the micro comper to focus on.

    so i got this rig sitting on its own. finally. for now i kept the stock chassis. velcro holds the body on. i still have to shorten the wheel base up a tad. i got to run a whole pack thru it last night. it's a blast to drive.





    these bodies are perfect for these axles. the wheels tuck up in to the wells perfect.





    also found some cool little scale tools. just gotta paint them (lol these were "donated" by my 3 yr old, from her lego set)

    absolutely. not too sure on color yet. i was just gonna pm you actually. what kind of paint should i use? and, i wanna cut the topper off the body. then make a roll cage for it, and still be able to put the topper back on. just like wes' jeep. i thinking of using styrene? think it would be strong enough? the rig wont be taking any nasty falls or rolls overs. just a trail rig. like a micro class one.

    did a little more work on this tonight. i got the wheel base just about nailed. i had to make a new set of rear links. i also ditched the springs and am running full droop. i'll use some rubber bands or hair ties to limit the shocks as it has way too much articulation.
