    Default GCM Homebuilt 1/6 Razor

    Well, after seeing how stinking tough the CC2 Brute was, I decided I needed something to tow behind my (shhhh.. secret) F350SD 1/6 build, so I took the very beaten JK brute off the CrossCanyon frame stuff and made up a new Razor homebuilt from scraps of everything I could find! Sort of feel like HeadQuake building his F150 from stuff he already had.
    First step... teardown... well really it took 1 minute, because there's 6 bolts that hold on the entire JK Brute outer cage, bumpers, and entire body, and one plug for lights. After it came off, the project still runs, drives, and everything, it's simply cosmetics that came off.



    Next was to start with the same bolt on type of stuff, so I went after the old FlameRanch F250 front bumper that had the winch on it already. Very simple. Bolted it on, and started laying tube work. Added 2 new rear bolt on brackets, and the perimeter cage was done and comes off with the same 6 bolts. Yeah! Getting a new motor at the same time. I ripped a chunk off the comm of the last one

    Next was to lay in a solid floor. I wanted the entire bolt on cage to be removable with nothing more than bolts and plugs, so the floor had to be steel and welded in completely. This turned out to be REALLY easy using a dollar store baking tray! haha! I cut the basic outline oversize, then pressed it down around the frame rails and over the sides, and up the back of the body, and then welded it all over the place to the side tubes and inner tube sections, but nothing is secured to the actual frame rails, so it still comes off in no time. Nice. The thing gets you full scale interior protection and a mega low setup with lots of ground clearance still. And I didn't change anything on this setup from the brute, so it has to work.





    After some paint, you can see what I mean about coverage. Should work like a charm!



    I had some dead and abused SC truck bodies around from last year's racing, and thanks to the wiiiiide front ends on these, I could chop off the fenders and still get a decent hood! THis is the fitment with some M4 nuts welded to the window pillars in order to attach it. Some 1/4-20 round head bolts and nuts under the lexan make the center hood holes filled, and also doesn't look as bad as an old hole in the hood.
    Got a nice hoop over the winch also, as well as the top rack/cage and all the bracing needed in the rear. Really shows the size of the interior hole now, and that's a 2.2 rim on there with a 4.5 inch tire, so this thing is large! Actually around 1/6 scale or so I'd say. It should look perfect behind my 10.5 inch wide F350SD haha!

    So here it is, all running (didn't do anything, it all stayed the same) and stickered up, and with my new HeyOK lighting kit that's all plug and go out of the electronics box in the back. There's 4 front lights up on the top bar, and there's 2 reverse, as well as rear park and brakes, all automated! This is so easy! The only thing I have to put in is the dash and seats and pedals, that's it. The rest is done.... Although I just might try some skinny tires on it to make that scale Razor look a bit more real. But it's a homebuilt after all

    Wow man, that looks awesome. Great idea. Love the scale of it. I'm glad you made it tall like that. Looks like one of those old Honda buggys. A big driver would look great in there to keep the small buggy look. So cool Chris.

    So the Brute can still exist too with just a quick swap? Nice.

    I didn't know what the heck you were building until I saw the pic with the hood and cage - good job, and quick. I agree about the narrow tire thing, it would make it look more realistic.
