this is based on an Axial SCX-10 Trail Honcho, their entry into the scale rigs of r/c. i love the stock body but wanted an XJ body as well. this will still run 1.9 tires and have upgrades along the way. the stock body will get used for every day bashing. i'll eventually build an accurate scaler rig but this one can be bashed and rebuilt.
the 1:1 scale rig
items that are currently being worked on are:
-rear tire carrier
-small scale items (hi-lift, fire extinguisher, etc.)
mock up of Proline XJ body.
laying out paint scheme to match my full size rig, and cut lines as well
It looks sweet. The tires are real close to matching but I think the front bumper coud be made to look closer but I dont know how easily or how well it'll look with the other body. But looks good, I'm debating getting back into RCs, I've been itching for one recently but I dont really have the time or the cash to put into them.
