As much as I enjoy my LMC, but it's time that I decided to build something that will go faster than 3km/h. So, recently I found this 1/24 scale Toyota Tundra R/C, actually I've seen it for a while now. Ordered one last week and it finally came in the mail today.

The body seems pretty decent.

Here's what I planning to use on this build, a 1/36 Micro-T. Pretty much stock at the moment, other than the 7.4V 180mAh 2-cell Li-Po battery.

Unfortunately, this is not what I was expected...the body is way too narrow...

This is how narrow it is compare to my Hilux.

Update: Sold the Micro-T a while ago, and recently purchased a NIB Micro High Roller. So far got full ball bearings set, threaded axles, both from Losi. Then an unknown rear gear box.

I really don't like AM since I tried out 2.4GHz, so the stock ESC and servo have to go, upgraded to Losi Micro Rock Crawler DSM 2.4GHz ESC with 3 wires servo. I also switch back to the stock rear gear box, IMO it's smoother.

Update: Took some Atomic Mini-Z AWD rims and Atomic Micro-T rims, combine them to make my own rims.

http://i1179.photobucket.com/albums/x396/Dr_Kustom01/Losi%20Micro-T%20-%20Micro%20High%20Roller/IMGP2403-5.jpg

Cut the wheel hub off the Micro-T rims and weld it to the Mini-Z rims.

http://i1179.photobucket.com/albums/x396/Dr_Kustom01/Losi%20Micro-T%20-%20Micro%20High%20Roller/IMGP2402-1.jpg

Added a lip to give some aggressive off-set.

That left front fender is not finish yet, still need some more styrene. Here's a mock up on the chassis.

Update: One of my Li-Po battery wire fall off the plug...

http://i1179.photobucket.com/albums/x396/Dr_Kustom01/Losi%20Micro-T%20-%20Micro%20High%20Roller/IMGP2412-3.jpg

So I decided to make my own AAA battery pack using 2 Gen. 1 battery tray, with this set up, I get a lot more run time, but those AAA's are so much heavier compare to the Losi batteries.

Update: Did some more modification to the chassis, got the battery packs to sit right.

Battery packs can be screw to the chassis to hold them in place.

First layer putty applied.

Now that waiting for the putty to dry, time to get some work on the headlights. Both headlight buckets are made, but still need some detailing.

Thanks Brian! Compliments are always welcome. :D I still have a few spots to touch up on the grille. It wasn't too hard to make, first I extended the grille by connect both ends with some styrene stripes, then welded pieces of styrene sheets between both ends and the styrene stripes underneath, filled up the gaps with putty, some 400 grit sandpaper for smoothing out the putty, then finish it up with primer and paint. ;)



Update: Continue working on the Tundra from where I left off yesterday. Sand down the second layer of putty.

http://i1179.photobucket.com/albums/x396/Dr_Kustom01/Losi%20Micro-T%20-%20Micro%20High%20Roller/IMGP2403-10.jpg

Seems to be smooth enough, but just to make sure, I sharpied the extension section, then sand it off, so I'll know where I need to apply more putty.

http://i1179.photobucket.com/albums/x396/Dr_Kustom01/Losi%20Micro-T%20-%20Micro%20High%20Roller/IMGP2406-7.jpg

Repeated this steps a few time, spending a good few hours on applying putty and sanding it off, and this is how it came out.
