1/6 G.I. Joe Jeep
I've been working on this for the last couple of months. I found a 1960's era Hasbro G.I. Joe Jeep at a garage sale in town, with the trailer, for $5. I used the scx10 chassis from my wroncho for the build. Purchased a wraith skid and replaced the scx10 skid to give the frame a wider stance, and the Jeep a bit more stability overall. In doing so I had to use 91mm links for crossbraces, but I also re-used the rear scx10 crossbrace and added the extensions from the forward battery box conversion to make up the difference in space. I was going to forward mount the motor and trans, and use a divorced transfer case, but decided instead on cutting out the floor boards and use what I had on hand. I used hardware store angle brackets to hold the body to the chassis, made a crossover brace between the front shock towers to stiffen them up, zip tied an ax10 receiver box to that and zip tied the axial esc to that( it aint pretty, but it works). The battery is actually sitting atop the transmission case and 2 slots were cut into the floorboard for the straps, to hold it to the front floorboard. wheels are 2.2 axial rocksters, with tsl-sx tires. I didn't want to comp cut the rear fenders, like I've seen on other early Hasbro builds, so instead I modified them a little to clear the tires.
Still have to fabricate a rollcage and front bumper/stinger, replace the windshield, make a steering wheel, and waiting for a longer rear driveshaft. I forgot that the wraith skid is longer in the rear than an scx10 skid.[ATTACH=CONFIG]2037576[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]2037577[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]2037578[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]2037579[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]2037580[/ATTACH]
