Default Current project: 1964 CJ-5 1:3,5 scale

Hello to all, here a pic of my CJ-5 project in 1:3,5 scale. The plug is 80% finished and the mold should be ready end of the month. I'm planing to put it on a baja 5 frame

Looks great! Why did you choose the CJ-5 version over the CJ-7 or the Wrangler even?

Thanks Lars, Thanks Bill!

i looked into the yota axles a while back and contacted rc4wd about the strength and durability...they are built using 1/8th scale parts so i was told that our gas engines would tear them apart, ok for electric scale crawlers though...

That's right! Yota 1/5 Axles are to weak for race or bashing purpose. I choose them only for their good scale look. This car once finished , will the scale factor be the most important for me.. The engine ,a 4 stroke small 1.2 HP motor (is it fit inside) should be enough power to move forward . Electric engine is an option too. Right now the frame is done,next step will be the leaf springs,shocks and the 1/8 Scale truck transfer case mounting.

Hi Bentley. the transfer case is for a 1/8 Truck ( http://www.veroma-modellbau.com/e-sh...ncing-1-3.html) and the leafs are homemade and are from special "spring iron"(???) 15x2mm, and easy to make

yes I had to head them first ,otherwise there is no posibility to bend them.I had to harden again but added 1/5 shocks too for a good duty. I've tried with 5 ,then 4 leafs and right now with 3 leafs and additionnal shocks are OK for a smoth on and offroad use.
