Installed...





Aluminum servo mount...



Bead lock wheels...



Installed a fan for the motor. I fabricated a CF plate to mount the fan onto it...







With the new wheels...




Still waiting for new aluminum parts for the front suspension and YR aluminum steering set. Will update soon.

I see you got work done! Nice pic's, man! And nice CC01 "mods", :P

What's up with the fan? IMO, no need for it, unless it's a 21T or 27 brushed motor....

I run 2 hours continous straight with my CC01 with 35T/55T motors and have no fans either motor or esc...but have a gear reduction unit!!

Those side steps, are a body option included, or are a body option to buy alone?

There are really no heating issues. I just have a few spares and thought of using it. Well, it looks cool and "cool" actually. Hahaha!

The side step bars are stock that comes with the Pajero kit.

Some updates:

So I've had this pair of shock mounts since last March and I have never really decided whether to use it or not.


I was contemplating on creating holes on the rear part of the chassis to install this but the 100mm shocks doesn't need to stretch out in the back like it needs in front. But since the original mount of the CC01 is plastic, I decided to use this aluminum mounts and place it sideways. In that way, it can be adjusted to many setting. Forward, backward, higher or lower. The result is great.





I also installed strut bars using some spare adjustable links I had, front and rear. It actually helped a lot in stiffening the chassis.

Bought new sets of 100mm (grey) and 110mm (blue) shocks to replace the front dampers. The middle one is the nicest of the three. Better rebound and very smooth damping.

The ESC and servo are waterproof but the RX isn't. So I ordered a case for the RX and fabricated a new ESC tray from a 2mm carbon fiber plate. Re-arranged the wires and concealed what I could to make it look cleaner.

Went crawling today with the bigger crawlers (Axial, Traxxas, AE, etc). My CC01 was surprisingly good. Although it couldn't crawl up the very steep areas but it still manage to get to most areas in the mini mountain.

Aluminum parts for front suspension and steering arrived today...



Time to install them...



Did a lot of grinding on the lower arms to achieve longer rebound.

Sweet looking Pajero. I am currently building one myself on a MST CFX chassis.

The third set of aluminum steering for the CC01. The first I used was the GPM which was an ultimate let down. The aluminum material is too soft and makes a lot of play. The screws also keeps on loosening every few steer turns. The second was the Xtra Speed which wasn't really an upgrade because it's just an aluminum version of the stock with no ball bearings at all and the play was lousy. This being the third by Hot Racing. Looks and steers better.
