    UPDATES!!!

    SO the tuber thing work, but my shocks needed moved around to stop that lean and then it was basically exactly like driving the LCC and didn't "feel" very scale. Also, I had not room for my batteries in there. Or a winch!

    I decided to go ahead and use an extra scx-10 frame I had laying here and then connect cage work onto that.

    Yep that will work out much better. Just like Jester said it would. ;-)

    So here's my progress. I plan to have a stinger off the front to keep me from endoing and to put the winch there. I will cut of there rear of the chassis and put a spare tire there. I want to find some tiny hinges and make the hood open for battery. How do other people hinge stuff?

    Still a ways to go, but the outer cage is attached to the inner cage now. Need to add some supports to it now, but the general idea is there.

    Finally got some more time in to build. I added the rear spare tire carrier that I wanted and a stinger to keep me front endoing. The wheel speed is a little low to keep things from burning up so it's hard to drive out of a fae plant. Stinger helps and still lets me climb up thing. The spare doesn't rub at flex (and yes I know it's not a scale legal tire, the other ones aren't here yet) and always me to still drive straight up a wall.

    PIX!

    Ok just finishing getting it ready for the comp sunday. I added some slide plates to the bottom of the tube. I water proofed as best I could, and I made a battery tray out of a plastic Captain bottle. Now this rig has a lil Captain in it!

    I decided not to paint the tube just yet. Just in case I need to do more to it.

    Well, I thought this thing did pretty well at the comp for it's first time out. The tires were garbage and I need a winch, but it handled like a dream and side hilled and hill climbed quite well. I just didn't have enough scale points to make it worth anything so again, I am following Jesters advice and added an interior. There's really no room inside this thing, but I saw this Styrofoam banana holder today in the kitchen and had an epiphany! So here's what I came up with. Just got to add a steering wheel and seat back behind the driver. It's not a full driver but still some points.




    Do you think it will work?

    More work on the interior. Hope this meets GDB's approval for partial 3d interior. ;-)

    I glued together a dash and steering wheel.


    Then I blinged it out.


    And of course a Sunpro Tach!


    Then I colored the seat and added seat belts.


    Trimmed the whole tray to attach with velcro for removal.


    VW for the steering wheel.


    Shoulder straps so he wouldn't fall out.


    Made some inner fenders to hide all the electronics.


    And we're ready to rock!

    Rocking the TSL's now and loving them. They hook up awesome! I love the look and since the 1.9s do so well on my Tundra, I think I will love the big ones.
