    Default Not too typical Hilux

    Hello everyone!
    My name is Yaroslav. I'm 17 and i've been owning Trail Finder 2 since it was released by RC4WD. I haven't got any other scale rigs, because i love this little truck very much.
    This Trail Finder 2 has only Tf2 2speed trans, transfer case and frame with some metal panels.
    This rig had experienced AR60's axle ( it was pretty creepy but awesome rig to drive), scx10's axles, different suspension configurations. The question of changing axles came up when i broke 3 pairs of cvd in YOTA axles. In fact, i've never bashed on it. But..whatever.
    Now this rig has SDI2.0 axles, which are very durable and have good steering angle. There is 3link suspension with panhard bar in the front and leafsprings in the rear.
    I'm glad to join this forum, and hope you will enjoy my topic.
    Here are some pics of "what it was like" and "how it is like"



    And this is some pics from latest ARCTT-Russia Team event



    and from weekend adventure



    could not to post a pic of this seat

    More soon!

    I love your TF2! I think it's 'history' is visible and gives it scale realism - I thought some of those images were 1:1 scale reference pictures. 🏻

    Speaking about new body, filled all the holes, reshaped the the junctions to get rid of the visible bolts. Also the mirrors are the point.



















    The tricky part was to paint black lines between the lenses on the front.




    Door panels




    And finally the camper. It is still in procces.












    Also lots of details are missing, but bit by bit. Can't wait to drive this truck.
