Another Jeep

I built my "mini me" recently, few weekends and some measuring and a China Ebay body on top of a Vaterra K5 Ascender chassis.
Light bar is from Maddog RC and shines ultra bright on a 11.1V 3S pack and the snorkle is home made.
Got it finished last week but I didn't like the wheel base, so I took a few more milimeters off the ends.



Shortened the wheel base.




Something for the jeeple:




Pretty damn close the actual Jeep.

It didn't look right with the rear tires not centered in the wheel well. Although it does look like the 3" stretch kit for the JK from Rock Krawler.

I want to build another one now, bigger one with Wraith axles and a true 1/8th scale. These tiny 1.5 tires are a challenege whereas the 2.2 Pitbulls I use go anywhere.

love the pitbulls great tires.. You'll have to spend the money and get a set for the big jeep and see how much farther you can go with that 1 too!

I hear the growl noise on the highway can give the driver spontaneous boners.
