    New to the site - Jim Thorpe PA

    I was linked here from a different site. I have been in the offroading world for years now (ATV's, OHV's, and now my Micor) and I have to say that I enjoy the Micro almost more than the real thing. The best? It's sooooo much cheaper to fix. I have had my micro for a few months now and have some modifications done to it:

    Got a Dodge body just for show:


    Also did some work on the suspension. I cut about 3 spins out of my springs and then relocated the shock mounts. We used styrene as the cross member:




    Finally upgraded the servo because I killed the stock one:


    Also, built some course sections (2'x2' for easy transport). I only have one pictured but I made one out of styrofoam/plaster, one out of scrap metal welded together, and one out of wood nailed together:


    My buddy also built some 2'x2's:


    I'm exciting to get out and crawl a bit and hopefully pick up some useful information!

    welcome, we have several GTGs and comps. Keep a look out for them and join us when you have a chance. We are going to Green Lane to run some scale trucks tonight. It is a bit away from you, but you are welcome.

    Welcome to the club. So glad the group is getting larger. lojim would you be willing to make some more of those crossbraces? I like that idea of inboarding the shocks.

    I am a big Dodge fan so I am digging that body. I have a SCX-10 Dodge truck scaler I am working on.

    They were not that hard to make. Having the right tools in the shop helps a lot. I'm sure I can make a few sets if anyone is interested.

    This one is just a toy from Big Lots. Best $3 I spent for something to destroy.
