Default Wanna-Be-Scaler.....Clod Crawler

Well I bought a HPI Jeep Rubi body and just placed an order with Tower Hobbies for over $100 for this thing. I aslo order one Roof rack and one rack for a spare tire carrier. I already have a snorkle and Jerry Can. Still needing to get a Hi-Lift Jack. I may try to make one myself. Don't know yet. Since I don't have time to build a TLT right now and really don't want to buy more elect's and a scale frame. I'm just making this so I can switch this over on my 2.2 Pimp Cane Leeroy for know. I now it's not perfectly scale, but should still be sweet looking and alittle more fun to drive.

Parts List.

Just got her all done. I had to just get this out of the way. Everything was just sitting here looking at me. I'll just have to stay up late working on orders. Sorry guys...I had a screwed up week. I need some Me time. I didn't get it competely done, but it runs now and one set of lights work. The 9v for the headlights is mounted in the Kayak. I'll get the other things out of the way here in a few days. I just wanted to get it running. I went with 60 V10 Crawler Motors, with Flux Rings and 13t Pinions.
