- Project: Tundra -

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...





To be continued...

Update: Got some new parts in and in the progress of widening and extending the body.

This is how narrow it is compare to my Hilux.



Got some work done.

Still need to get to work on the left side and fix that dent on the hood.







Also started to work on the headlight. Made the right side headlight, it will looks more scale compare to the other one.

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.



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



Added a lip to give some aggressive off-set.



A mock up.



3 piece rim.



Add some style to the rim.

Here's a couple flex shots and a short video testing the steering and suspension.

Front bumper is to show how narrow the body originally was.





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