I don't mean to rag on those who want to share pics of their traxxas with aftermarket parts installed, but such a thing is not a Custom rc in my opinion. No harm in sharing, but I want to see real custom builds!
So, I am hoping to make a "custom build thread"
For a custom rc to qualify:
as few stock or off the shelf parts as possible
Cross-brand parts adapted to work with each other to create something new
Homemade parts, adapted parts ect.
To share, you don't have to be the creator....if you find something worth sharing please do!
Pics, pics, and more pics
Here is one example of a true custom build I found recently on ebay....a emaxx "solid axle" creation. Very nicely done.
And here is one of mine, an example of cross-brand with a few homemade parts to create something different...a 1/6 scale stampede. While this truck wasn't super special, it wasn't merely a stampede with bolt on parts either. Redcat, traxxas, exceed, and integy parts were used, the suspension was modified and naturally the chassis was stretched. This I consider the weakest example of "custom". It contained just enough homemade or modified parts to be considered custom. The emaxx above is a much better example of a custom build.
