    I currently am waiting for mine to arrive in the next few days so it's very interesting to study yours.
    I've built numerus versions of this one from the chassis and body's so I'm quiet familiar with their little problems.
    That being said, do you plan on buying another body shell to fix small problems ?
    That's what I'm thinking of doing and save the Limited addition body as my plans are to actually drive it and ware it out

    Keep us updated on this. love the small add on and subtle changes so far.
    thanks mate .

    I read your thread yes, I was waiting for more before I told you hehehe.
    I doubt that I bought some rc4wd in the future, they are just bad experiences with them, but if I have thought about taking a body to use and leaving the blue for the shelf hehehe
    I will keep informing you of the changes

    Well, year after year we are putting hours on the Blazer who is still a virgin ......

    Finally, the front suspension is moved, with no spring in any place and I have changed the turrets sideways because if not, the shock absorbers did not work well. I have also disassembled the V8 again because when changing the ignition distributor the spark plug wires had to be changed too and for this we had to disassemble the manifolds. Once everything is in order, a retightening of screws that comes from a loose source, and also grease as God commands that they are very fair in grease, at least for my taste.

    Some workshop photos:

    Here everything is taken out:

    Here you see that it is necessary to remove manifolds for the cables:

    Here we can see where the shock absorber should coincide so that it works as it should and where the turrets are as standard:

    So when you turn around, they look like this and work like a vice:

    A photo of the R4 broken down jjejejejje:

    I have to add that the front suspension did not move at all unless you took the car with one hand and the axle with the other, with the car's own weight it did not move even a millimeter, now it has about 2-3cm of travel, less than the shock absorbers allow, or higher turrets are placed or 25% of the shock absorber travel is lost

    Things are still coming, and more that will come, after a fight via mail with the RC4WD after-sales service, in the end they make me an account on their website for future orders in their online store, just as I said The bad, I say the good, excellent after-sales service the truth, at the moment, with more fight or less, every problem has done something to solve it, so I can be happy that almost 2 years later, they have had a commercial attention and it is Very much appreciated.

    Some gummies that will be for another but they arrived:

    And the rear leaf brackets, to prevent it from snagging:

    More work, I changed the electronics, a servo from 38kg to 6v with the hobbywing 1080 ESC. Motor I have left the same to see that. I have put more elegant covers to the cables in the part that is seen under the hood. With this configuration everything has entered the aluminum tank and I have been able to remove the tray from the middle.

    Yesterday I will receive what I think will be the last pieces of the Blazer, in 7 days of Rc4WD to my house:

    Thanks co-worker, the truth is that, very happy with the premiere, it works better than it seemed at home and at the end of the route, it seems to be softer, very happy with it.

    Released !!! Pleasantly surprised on the ground, very happy

    Great photo's "Freedom"

    Following closely as you know already.

    Scratches in body tells me your enjoying and driving the little truck...No shelf queen.
    Just awesome.

    I'll be switching the blue body out with the Orange and White one (pre built) this weekend when it comes in.
    Hope to start on my interior this morning...also going a light tan.

    Fun fun to be building and mod-ing the same truck at the same time to our own tastes and preferences.

    More please.
    Run what Ya Brung.

    This rig is awesome, I love using it, how it moves and how it goes up !!! until I did not use it I did not think it would go so well, at home it seemed hortopedic hehehehe

    Thanks mate !!! When I am very suffering, I will paint the body, but for now we must use it that way, for that is, although it hurts
