Default "Toecutter" HPI Baja 4x4 MOD

(+ tutorial video to make 1 )

Hey All,

Got tired of waiting for a 4x4 Baja so i made my own...95% stock parts, belt drive 4x4 Hpi Baja SS..

Now this just the protoype people..!!!..the 1st run... it will be better and have some nice bling.. i will be making a few kits but you will need all the

stock parts... basically a complete rear end

Has taken me about 2 Months at about 1 or 2hrs day and cost me about $400-500AUD.

The video is of a totally stock SS motor and pipes... stock muffler in the 1st part of the vid and 10mins later...the HPI pipe.... made a big difference..!!

stock gearing also... NO extra holes drilled in chassis and only very minor modding of 2-3 stock parts... the other parts i made from scratch..

....Still needs a belt tensioner, the belt is actually a little tight..hence no need 4 1 yet ...but just had to take it for a spinn...!!!!

I will make alum V belt pullies later... just stoked that she works..!!!!

and cheeeers to Bryce, Snooze and Gerald...for the inspiration

check out the vid and let me know what you think

Heres some of the early pics:

The 1st run video:
