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...

The Titan needs a rival... and if the Ridgeline came in... there may be some trouble.

Cool! Thought that was the tamiya high lift body for a quick second. Why didn't you use the micro short course chassis instead? It would have been alot better for that desert truck performance.

The Micro SCT is very wide for a 1/24. So I choose the 1/36 Micro-T to start with.

Haha! :lol:


Update: Got some bearings in the mail today!

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.

Thanks theoriganalRiD3R1967! Yes, they were.


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.

I'm looking gorgeous? :-? or the Tundra? :lol:

Springs rate are fully adjustable, I can raise it or lower its some more. But now, I've raised it about 3mm higher.



Update: Took it to Central Park today, it was a blast to drive. Did some speed run, rock crawling, mudding, some jumps, it have no problem at all. Video will be post up tomorrow.

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.

Thanks John! The liquid putty is Tamiya Light-Curing Putty. They dry faster under light, and great for filling up small gaps/cracks.



Update: Nothing much got done today, it's been a long busy day.

Have the roof smoothed out, and starting to touching up the body lines.

That's the camera I use when I take the R/C out. Other than that, I rarely use that camera, its easy to use and pretty new compare to the other camera I use the most, but the quality isn't that good when taking pics of small objects.

Update: Sand down the left rear door and left rear fender flare again...I really hate Model Master primer, they are so hard to sand.

Then apply another thin layer of putty, this time with epoxy putty.
