Yup, got another xtruck a while ago, this is how it looks when I first got it in the mail.

http://i279.photobucket.com/albums/kk124/Dr_Kustom/Xmods/IMGP0565.jpg

Then I installed a lift kit and relocated the batteries. (Great for wheelie)
http://i279.photobucket.com/albums/kk124/Dr_Kustom/Xmods/IMGP0662.jpg

But I still not satisfied with it, so I deiced to go with 2.4GHz PCB, the xmods PCB just doesn't works for me, very slow response and can't even turn. So I installed the 2.4GHz PCB on it now with the stock mini-z AWD motor. The wheels are Aoshima Super swampers (brand new), Kyosho mulit off-set rims with AM alum. lug nuts. I'm still not happy with the drivetrain, its very rough. I'm planning of getting some bearings, better motor and some GPM for it.

On/off switch have been mounted on the side of the chassis, so it won't get turn off by the rocks while going off-road.

Hellooo, new GPM.
http://i279.photobucket.com/albums/kk124/Dr_Kustom/Xmods/IMGP0465.jpg
I also put spacers between the bearings and knuckles, to keep everything nice and tight, it also helps keep the dirt off the bearings.

Dr. Kustom

Thanks boohoo, I'm planning on finish this project up ASAP, mostly because I want to get ready for snow, my other 3 projects will be on hold for now. As for the color, I either will go with the look on the box, or white & silver. No idea yet, any suggestion?


Update: Front wheel well finished.

2009.11.07, 07:23 PM
most of the shoguns around here thats what there called here in the uk are the same colour as your box the light blue with a grey bottom i think what ever colour will be really good

Dr. Kustom
2009.11.09, 10:55 PM
Thanks guys, I think I'll go with a two tone paint scheme. Maybe make it looks like the box, or silver & white. I am also thinking of making some custom flares, to make it looks like an arctic truck.

Update: Re-design the PCB area. It was kinda messy earlier, with all those wires sticking out. So now I have made the PCB sit lower, and made a case for the PCB and for the other side, I used a flat piece of styrene to hide all the wires. This way it looks better, and also help save some space for the interior.

Type 3:
http://i279.photobucket.com/albums/kk124/Dr_Kustom/Xmods/IMGP0524.jpg
I personal think type 3 looks the best for this project.

And here a little something I have been working on... can't show much since I'm only working on 1 wheel arch.

Update: The 2.4GHz PCB just shipped out to XXX today for a 2x3 Stacked FET, also ordered a Stock R motor. Since I'm using the new rims now, I got a wider off-set, +3 wide all around, with that much off-set and those huge bogger tires, I need to sand down more plastic on the wheel well and the wheel flare. The front wheel flares on the body are now 47mm wide, and 45mm for the rear.

http://i279.photobucket.com/albums/kk124/Dr_Kustom/Xmods/IMGP0671.jpg

Did some work to the driver seat. Since the passenger seat sit higher on the chassis, because it located right above the PCB, so I need to raise the driver seat up a little bit too.

The arm rest that comes with the model kit are nice, but they aren't really detailed, so I add styrene to cover up the back side of the arm rest. (left is original and right is detailed.)

Update: Have been playing around with some ideas that I have in mind, those are the 4runner seats, IMO the black one looks better.

Update: Made a roof rack, it is removable and its attached to the body by 4 screws, just have to paint it in matt black, then it's complete.

I planned on using side step, but the original one was too long, because I'm using large tires, I only have the chassis lifted, but the body was sitting on normal height, to fit those tires, I had to chop up the wheel arches to clear those tires, and because of that reason, I also have to make the side step smaller, so when the front wheels are turning there won't be any rubbing.

Update: Got the roof rack painted and finished! Yesterday there was a snow storm here and we got about 10-15 inches of snow, overnight all the snow turned into ice, so I deiced to make a video of it in action, also took some pics.
