Unfortunately my driver has not arrived yet, it's almost month since I ordered it

    Few pics of version 1:





    Not Mr CommaD level scale engine but hides motor and servo.






    I wonder if it's worthy of on the back window




    I'll most likely have to make new bumpers soon but I hope everything else holds up for this summer and next winter I can rebuild it to version 2.
    Nice work! What method did you use to cut in the hood? I haven't worked with the plastic yet I have a similar Jeep body from eBay and banggood. Thanks !

    I used sewing thread for the cuts. First either drill a hole to the body line you want to cut or heat a needle and push it through that point, then feed some basic cotton thread through that hole and start doing sawing motion. It's relatively fast and incredibly precise. The thread is easy to guide through corners etc and cut is pretty smooth.

    One pic from today:


    The hobby fair is now over and Jeep has some things that need to be fixed and improved but more about those in the next episode!

    Quite nicely, on the rocks they are grip and fold well. On loose stuff they get packed up quite fast but with some wheelspeed they also clean up well. I'm happy with them, even though I will try Lil novas on them. Mostly because I'm curious to test 2 stage foams. Disclaimer: I'm not sure if these tires perform well enough for comps though as my experience in 1.9 scale tires is pretty limited and I haven't competed.

    Thanks Matt! It was really nice weekend and I'm also pretty happy how this build turned out. Even though there are many things that I will do differently on my next build.

    Looks great. I hear the SBG sticker makes it climb better. Really clean look. Inspiring!

    That's the beauty of this hobby, always something to change, modify, or do differently on the next build!
