Default Toyota Hilux ARB

Good . After turning the coconut, and having the occasion after selling my DAB ARB, I bought the one day my Hilux ARB single cab, this trot, I already knew it but whole and ready to be restored, always lends

It has gone through many colors, many axes, many puddles etc etc etc .... even some of the pieces of house are known with the car hahahaha



Here is a photo on the way home:

We started the disassembly:​

Chassis prepared for sanding, priming and repainting:​

With its mods on the Mexican chassis, I cut one of the rear bumper bars in its day and climbed the one that was left alone under the riders, to win at the starting angle. And the friend who has had it, I solder a grid plate for battery support, is somewhat more backward than standard but below as well.



I start with the HPI, the poor woman had dry time for what you see:

But it's healthy, good cleaning, and good of fat again:​

And close it, save the fat that comes out (nothing is thrown) and once closed, I give a few laps to hand so it is not too hard at the beginning with so much fat is normal:​

Now it's up to T1, who had the same fat as HPI, naa de naa:



So he got out of the car:

Something ugly but whole, healthy and without gaps:​

Clean:​

Well of fat as not:​

And finished, a few times by hand and ready to ride:​

The axes also have theirs, but the same, they are very healthy despite their appearance, they have neither a past thread nor odd clearances:

Clean for the moment outside, when the beef tubes arrive I will open them to clean as the HPI and the T1, at the moment to test suspensions and etc, I will clean them from the outside (I will make a lubrication hole, I will put pictures):​

And here is a picture of the shock absorbers that I mounted, 110mm front and 100mm back:​

They seem very long, but compressed, they are as long as those of SCX10 series, just what interests me, then if you want to stretch you have margin.



Since I was at work, take the opportunity to clean the wheels, even if I did not wear these, I would have a Raceline Monster 1.9 with a 4.19 "KLR voodoo:

it was the turn to prime the chassis​

The chassis is already painted​

It is already assembled, the beeftubes are missing to finish with the axles and relocate as god commands the rear shock absorbers:

Here a test of flexibility with the long shock absorbers, I'll test in the field, but it does not look bad​

It is missing some detail and that they arrive their definitive tires for the voodoo, and although in a few months it will take other axes, almost finished​.

The wheels are already mounted, now remove the axles, I have orders from MST CFX-W​

The last detail, only the axes are missing jijiji​

mooooore

I start to assemble them to see that such MST, at the moment well presented everything:​

Well, although the content of each bag has nothing to do with each step to assemble, it is a mixture of things, it does not seem complicated. Everything fits perfectly, the plastic I like, I find it robust and heavy, many bearings and many screws and nuts, but I like how they are, very robust. While waiting for a couple of pieces with weight, I have mounted to test:

Testing, the links below coincide with those already had Axial axes, which in turn, coincided with the axes RC4WD Yota. The top links I have to do some shorter ones. I like how they fit in the Modelex chassis, also allow them to be well up, ideal for porticos, so it does not give more height. Axial scx10 shock absorbers of all the life before and after mount others, but I will also put Axial. It is wide, I counted on it, in addition with the optical effect of the porticos and narrower tires it seems even wider, but with these RC4WD Raceline rims it is the same as Axial and Gear Head .​
