thanks collector1! Yours is looking great too! Really digging your wheels! My body is a bit scratched up, thanks to some Paris Dakkar-style desert driving. That's why I haven't put the decals on mine, might have to repaint the shell soon. Doing donuts on dirt is fun! Clean-up afterwards can be a PITA though [8D]

I seem to have a minor problem. The left rear wheel appears to be sticking out more than the right one. I've checked everything - shocks, axle, trailing arms, tires, wheels, body mounts. Couldn't find anything unusual. Is this normal?

Here's my Pajero. All stock except for ball bearings, aluminum wheel hexes and motor heatsink. Light kit is up next [8D] Lifted it a little by inserting bushings on top of the rear shock mounts and by trimming a bit of the front lower arms. Also trimmed the wheel arches of the body to prevent the F350 tires from rubbing
what kind of tires you using?

I'm using Tamiya Rock Cruiser tires... the ones that come stock with the High Lift kits.

Did you try swapping the rear body mounts?

Yes I did swap the mounts, even put the stock tires back. Checked the trailing arms, shocks, axle, wheel hexes. Couldn't find anything...

Here's an update on mine. Finished building the chassis tonight. The body color I went with is Mica Blue. I think I'll end up going with Light Gun Grey for the bumper trim and finish it off with a couple coats of Clear Gloss.

It has headlight and fog light buckets kinda but for turn,brake and backup you would have to cut the plastic because its not lexan its not clear, I thought about doing it as I have seen it done but really dont have the time

You're welcome! As what The Collector1 has said, it comes with light buckets for the headlights and fog lights. You will love building the Pajero, it's a quick and easy build and be completed in one evening (not including the body).

ok, i understand that the pajero has light buckets for its headlights ang front fog lights, well i'm a light lover(even on my drift rc cars).
I'm planning to make my own roof rack and put on some 4 additional fog lights on the front and then 2 more on the rear. i've seen here in the previous posts that i can buy the roof rack and fog lights, but my only problem is there is no local seller of that item here in the philippines, so my only resort is to make my own, any tips on how can i make light buckets for my additional fog lamps?

Here it is. Bought kit from lunchboxer. One pic shows how i lifted the body. I used plastic tree parts from the kit. Hpi Wheels and highlift tires. ball bearing set. I am only getting 5 min runtime on a fresh 3300nimh battery. My rc10 with a mamba max 7700 gets 15 min on the same battery. Should i put the mamba in the pajero? What are my other options? Is the drivetrain that inefficient? or is the voltage cutoff on the tamiya esc too high?

Wha! My customer shows up here?! (joke)

Looks great! Did you have to modify the chassis to get more lift when you fit the bigger tires?!

Hi lunchboxer,

No chassis mod. just a body lift. Bushings in the front and the rear pin mod on the rears. The tires arent that much bigger.
