I just got a Jimny kit today. My plan is to build it into a light trail truck for a friend of mines first rc.
Havnt built a 1/10 or a tamiya or a trail truck in years. Any suggestions?

I already have the bearings and rc4wd mud thrasher tires. I was planning on locking the rear diff, and using thick grease in front so its a bit more capable for light crawling. Planning on brushless, low kv. Looking for very long battery time, and ease of use more than anything.

Anything else I should do to make it ready for the trails?
Good shocks for trails?

Any opinions on the yr long travel kit?
How about the active hobby seesaw towers?

It's totally fine. I did an M06L 911 GT2 build. If you use extra wide wheels, if anything the wheelbase is too short.

Has anybody dropped the coin for those double cardan style CV's from Tamiya?

I've got too much lift on mine to clear the tires on it and I keep popping the rear dogbones out of it if I make the rear suspension work...........even in the mild rock shown here.

Does anyone have side-by-side comparison of MF01 and TL01? Since MF is inspired by TL01 design, I would like to know, if it's possible to pair rear part of TL01 to MF01 front? MF01 has corrected some problems of TL01, but I dont like rear motor position...

Edit: So apparently it can be done This is what I found on Tamiyablog.

It doesn't look that hard to do as I would expect. It even fits SWB shell. Now I don't get why Tamiya chose motor behind axle

Picked on of these up a while ago, and built originally as an off road vehicle. Wasn't overly happy with it so have now turned it into a 210mm mini. Pretty versatile chassis.

A few chassis pics - pretty stock except for CVA's and bearings. It has aluminum arms which are from the off road build - I would have taken them off, but they remove a lot of slop so on they stay. Also added the TL01 speed tuned gear set to get the gearing somewhat in the ball park for the mini wheels. Set up currently with a 17.5.

Dropped on a CRX body and HPI wheels. Ready to go!
