    G6 Swamp Thing Re-Build

    I was fortunate enough to win a G6 edition SCX10 at Recon. I can't really say this is a build, it is more of a re-build. I wanted to stay with a light truck so much of the plastic stayed. The rest is drive train upgrades. I still have a few items to pick up, but most I had in the basement.

    Beef Toobs
    XR10 knuckles and chubs
    Ti drag link
    Aluminum servo link
    Over/under drive
    MIP shafts
    V11 35T motor
    Sidewinder ESC
    10a BEC
    Aluminum upper links
    Ti lower links
    ESC winch controller
    Winch
    Aluminum tie plate into chassis for winch
    14T pinion
    Molded high power 12v headlights
    Hitec 7955TG
    Pit Bull Mad Beasts

    G6 Swamp Thing Re-Build

    Painted the inside black do it didn't glow with the headlight blead through. Also added in some Axial lights for tails. The lens was tinted red with some spray I had laying around.

    Thanks, I was surprised I nailed it on the first try. I usually have a few prototypes left over after done.

    Added some stickers and got my tail lights wired in. I am leaning toward the Vanquish light bar, but for now it will be plain.

    Latest round of changes. Since I took off the light bar, I replaced it with a straight one. Wanted to protect the windshield.





    I also got my pull pal made and a way to hold it to the rack.



    Here are the switches that control the head/tail lights.





    The rear needed a shackle so I made a plate to mount to the plastic bum perish thing.



    Also got a head on shot of the headlights. These suckers are so bright.
