Default My yellow JK

Hi guys

Some of have seen The-Gamer's take on a JK (http://www.scale4x4rc.org/forums/showthread.php?t=79191r) . At some point he decided to let it go and I took the chance to get a decent scale truck

On 26st December 2015 we gather some folks to do some wheeling at a local trail and I took the JK for it's first outing. Nice truck but managed to break the panhard mount and the hood hinges(don't ask me how )

First, made a simple 3d printed panhard mount

Afterwards, an aluminium servo mount to replace the plastic one

The links at front were the firsts to replace

To hide the servo and motor/gearbox,made this simple radiator

This truck came with the GCM front motor mount. There was nothing wrong with that but I wanted to lower the motor to improve the CoG and make room for a future fake motor

Here, with the GCM kit:

And here, the gearbox I made, it's about 12:1, metal gears. Nothing fancy but works fine and fits between the rails

How low??

After a break, a event was aproaching and I've had to pick it again to make it trail ready. The hood opened again

Made the wheel wells decent

new rock sliders to mount electronics and battery

Nicer links

And then, the acessories. The rear bumper has a spare tire mount but I prefer mounting useful stuff.

And this is on that even, Canis Lupus, where I paired up with The-Gamer

After a grueling day on the trail, super hot, the JK don't overheated nor broke anything. Only a shock unscrew itself but was a quick fix.At the end of the day, even won the "more realistic truck". A real surprise

The work it's never finished and I have some more plans for this truck
