After sold my LC80, I decided that I wanted a new rig. I came across this rare Aoshima Hilux model kit. It was very pricey, but I've yet seen this model kit mounted on the Losi Micro Crawler yet, so thought I should give it a try.

Starting with this stock LMC, the stock wheelbase line up with the body pretty well.

Update: Chopped up the chassis, got the tranny fitted.

http://i1179.photobucket.com/albums/x396/Dr_Kustom01/Losi%20Micro%20Crawler/P2060667.jpg

Then I notice that the tranny sit pretty far away from the frame, so I wanted to re-position it, but the bed got into the way. I had to cut out a small piece off the bed, so it will have enough room for the motor to fit.

http://i1179.photobucket.com/albums/x396/Dr_Kustom01/Losi%20Micro%20Crawler/P2060673.jpg

Next, I cut up the interior floor.

http://i1179.photobucket.com/albums/x396/Dr_Kustom01/Losi%20Micro%20Crawler/P2070674.jpg

After re-position, the tranny is now sit nice and flash with the frame.

http://i1179.photobucket.com/albums/x396/Dr_Kustom01/Losi%20Micro%20Crawler/P2070676.jpg

Takes up so much interior space. :(

Now for a mock up with the axles.

Thanks Songha!

One of my favorite scale builds ever.
Same here, that's my favorite 1/10 Hilux.


Update: Now that I've got the tranny fitted, its time to move on to the rear axle. Made a pair of leafs and some shackles, now the rear axle is mounted.

Are you going to be doing a smaller version of that truck exactly? I figured with the same names, that was what you're going for.

I'll try to replicate the exterior of that rig as much as possible. As for the chassis and suspension set up might be slightly different.

http://i1179.photobucket.com/albums/x396/Dr_Kustom01/Losi%20Micro%20Crawler/P2140666.jpg

Then got rid of the mold lines left on the body.

http://i1179.photobucket.com/albums/x396/Dr_Kustom01/Losi%20Micro%20Crawler/P2140671.jpg

The stance was a little high from the earlier stage, so I decided to lower it a bit. Had to cut out half of the gas tank to clear the axle.

http://i1179.photobucket.com/albums/x396/Dr_Kustom01/Losi%20Micro%20Crawler/P2140676.jpg

Then I made some shorter shackles.

http://i1179.photobucket.com/albums/x396/Dr_Kustom01/Losi%20Micro%20Crawler/P2150679.jpg

Now for the mock up.

Thanks Evolution! The double cab Hilux that I've build wasn't that good, I had to almost lock the front suspension to get the steering to work right. After many re-build, I'm still not satisfy with it.

Update: Servo installed!

Thanks B! Still need a few things to finish up that rear bumper, tow hooks and CB antenna.


Update: Front bumper is almost finish. Still need to make a mount for it, so it can attach to the chassis.

Lol! I was inspired by one of the 1/10 Hilux build by 1BadJeepBruiser over Scale4x4. My goal for this build is try to replicate his 1/10 version as close as possible. I even borrowed the exact same title from his build thread. :lol:


Update: In the process of building the scale winch and slightly re-design front bumper.

Lol, it only snowed like an inch, all the snow melted within the day. I asked 1BJB about the 1/10 version, turn out that he already sold that rig, so probably it's not in NY anymore. :(



Update: Passenger seat installed. Both seats painted, interior finished.

Had to take almost the whole truck apart just to swap a servo.

http://i1179.photobucket.com/albums/x396/Dr_Kustom01/Losi%20Micro%20Crawler/IMGP2406-4.jpg

With the new servo installed, much smaller!
