Yup, other than bad currency exchange for r/c crawler/mode enthusiast have easy quick access to bootleg scale models, 3 days cheap shipping arrival (nearby manufacturer continent), lots of cheap affordable r/c hardware and etc. And not likely to have tax import and etc. Which is why most asian or expat R/C modeler who live nearby here have great inventory of R/c parts and lots of licensed body shell of the shelf in normal supermarket. Unfortunately original TRAXXAS and HPI spare parts and Horizon hobby stuff is hard to come by here.

You say that as if it's a bad thing.
I don't own any HPI stuff, so I can't say anything about them...as for traxxas stuff, I don't see it as being any better than the less expensive asian branded products I own. I'm sure others disagree, but if Traxxas stuff is really that durable, why do you see build thread after build thread of people buying traxxas stuff and then immediately replacing the whole drivetrain/arms/etc... with aftermarket parts?
If I lived in the continent where most RC parts are manufactured, I'm sure I can spend less money building myself something that is much more fun anyway. I wouldn't have to worry about parts breaking because cheap replacements are right around the corner!
Anyway, awesome job with your micro collection!

Ya i have to agree with you, lucky to live nearby where they manufacture the parts. On micro stuff i'm still keeping eye everyday at local mall. I just saw a micro Ford Mustang and a Rover this morning. But my pocket is empty..payday is in few days. I'll post you some updates soon n this thread.

After simple mods from video above the Jeep looks beautiful and stable. Notice the wheel "off-set".

Just reminded me I need to get to work on my Rocksta. It is currently in pieces as I was looking to extend the chassis a bit.

Scale crawler track: 10% work in progress
I'm working on a new portable rock crawler track for Orlandoo 1:35 scale crawler made out of foam box from my R/C jet kit. Its huge enough to enjoy proper scale 4x4 adventure on the table able to fit multiple Orlandoo models or other micro size 4WDs. Currently its 10% work in progress. Will need to add some foams, painting, airbrushing, adding some electronics wiring around the track, track ornaments and anything to make it scale or looks more diorama worthy looking track. Hopefull will finish before December next next month else before christmas.

Some updates, yesterday added some cavern and arches around the track to make it more adventurous. Now the track looks slightly bigger, lots of challenging climbs and alternative driving route in small compact size track.

Cool stuff man! You're inspiring me, need to build a course for my losi micro crawler you've got some good ideas there. I've got a trail of flagstone rocks I use but want something easier to put away/take out.

Thanks , i'm sure you'll love DIY crawler tracks using stuff around us, its fun to build and less money spent.
Btw some progress...

60% progress
Latest progress on my DIY rock crawler track, now more challenging and more obstacles added. Successfully tested and proven fun to crawl around which require skills to navigate and move forward to pass over artificial steep rocks. Later i'm going to do some paintings on the foam surfaces.
