Sweet custom jeep crawler (made from walmart toy)!

im sure a few people here can appreciate this....

one of the engineers from our truck group stopped by and showed me his creation today.....took some pics with my camera phone..so bear with the low quality.

its a Walmart Jeep Rock crawler RC car....but he made a custom 4 link (in blue) for it, and choped the fenders...and bobbed/dove-tailed the rear (with a lighter!)....and added new tires......full steel skid plate ...also pulled the plantarys in the axle apart and tightened up the slop that was in them by driving some screws in strategic locations....

the think crawls reeeeaaaaalllllly slow and has enough grip to drive itself up a wall, literally

Cool! A crawler sounds like a lot more fun to me than a racer. My brain might be fast enough to keep up with it.

I'm gonna get me one of them. I'll play with it stock for awhile before I do any mods. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]
