Default RC4WD trailfinder2 Blazer V8

Finally it arrived !!!

What an illusion to see the box:

And I start to take out, first a pair of jellies for the V8, some pulleys and the ignition, they did not have more sweets in stock ...

Nothing else open, a little screw to the ground, we'll see if it is missing somewhere or it comes from more:

Wet does not come hehe :

The bags with details and paraphernalia vary :

Another bag with wall and battery charger NIMH:

And the transmiter , which comes prepared with the third channel for winch:

I take it out of the box, well protected comes for the compact that is the box and what it includes. First impression, and although I had seen the body live more times, not so the v8 and the r4, but more beautiful live than in the truth photo, used to buy cars, the truth that has surprised me pleasantly:

The wheels, precious the truth, the screws and elacabado with the front locks:

by https://www.flickr.com/photos/126459290@N04/, en Flickr

And the backs the different cap:

And what I most expected to see, the V8 with the R4 and the double front shock absorber, quality finishes and detail, impressed me I'm really jejeje, win live:

For the time being it's everything, it's a workshop, first to change the yota1 for some yota2 with ballistic caps and change wheels hehehe, then more things that I'll tell you.

  • I changed the fuel tank for one of alu in red from RC4WD:






    by https://www.flickr.com/photos/126459290@N04/, en Flickr





    I have advanced the servo to be able to decorate the motor hole with the RC4WD pulleys and ornaments:






    by https://www.flickr.com/photos/126459290@N04/, en Flickr





    I have mounted the Yota2 of RC4WD with the ballistic diff covers of RC4WD, more elegant and with the direction behind the axle . I had thought of another system with forwarding but like that is enough. I have also removed the smaller leaf spring in front and back, I have mounted soft springs in rear shock that include them as OEM and in the front suspension I have left one of the shock absorbers on each side without a spring. It is softer and it twists easier, it has won a lot:

    Another detail that I had kept at home, the RC4WD hub nuts Mikey Thomson:​

After a long time, I will assemble the accessories

Radiator , distributor , water pump , pulley kit , thermostat , exhaust headers ...

1 of the 4 radiator clamps was broken so it only takes 3

And after assembling everything, without instructions of anything, following the photos of the web of rc4wd, when mounting the body, the wall in front of the dashboard makes butt with the distributor and can not be mounted without cutting the body
