Default Just For ****s Supra

have so many parts lying around, a nice body, and some goodies so i started for the first time in years, an xmod project. Using a CF chassis, CF shaft, mini-z wheels all around and we'll see where we go from there. tryna stay stock FETs but maybe an external turbo would be fun. heres what i got so far:

where i started (originally thought it was gunna be a mustang body):


some more prep:


after mini-z rim conversion/suspension changes/ body fitments:


planning to put a li-po kit on it tomorrow



and this is where the chassis is at now, need a front right gen 1 dog bone so I can put on the rim.




some plans are maybe a speedy 07 bb neo mag motor and a 2x2 FET stack, as far as body work goes I might contact someone for help. trying to implement a new suspension system as well.


since this is my last hurrah to xmods all comments appreciated. trying to build a fast reliable durable nice xmod that will remind me of the good ol days.

if anyone is in search for parts PM me, i have an *** ton. and to anyone on the forum that ive done wrong, i apologize in advance

Parts came in.. but ran in to one issue. The servo on the Gen 1 board I was gunna use is *****ed so I gotta either get a new one or go hobby grade on it. Indulge n spit some feedback, thanks guys

got a v2.2 board, a stock R motor, and have rear billet suspension towers I'm yet to put on. gotta figure out the EP board/servo situation and then I'll have it mounted.

wired up a fresh li-ion kit too, if anyone wants one put together for cheap lemme know

i also dremeled out some front mini-z rims for it, but ill save that for next time
