Actually, he has the scorpion - not the jeep - I was mistaken. Just like the one in the ad. I found an eBay auction to show the radio and battery to him. I'm pretty sure he doens't have the battery and the radio might be questionable. However, you are looking at close to $30.00 just to ship this thing. PM me an offer or an e-mail and I'll have him send you some pics.

Batteries like this are all over
ebay for under 20 bucks. Just double check the dimensions. I got one for $18 and is works perfectly. Don't search for Nylint crawler batteries because people are marking them up at a premium. any battery you find with the right specs will work. Mine was 12v, 4.5 ah capacity, sealed lead acid battery. Some I guess are 5 ah.

Hey guys, I still have bags and bags of HPI Savage shock sets. The big 8" long ones! Was toying with the idea of putting front and rear shock kits together with aluminum shock towers. Anyone interested? Will post pics of my set up.

something i have always done when dealing with toy grade stuff, when a part breaks i remove it and take it to my local hobby shop and see if they have anything similar. the guy at my shop is cool and will let me go behind the counter and look through parts that he has to find something the same or similar. theres always hardware stores too. i find random stuff at hardware stores from time to time that works. give it a try you might find a replacement

I have 2 of these 1.6 and some spare parts from a 3rd ,I have the Scorpion and Jeep bodies. I`ve enjoyed them for 5 years .I`ve had problems with gears in the front ,and I made it travel faster and stronger across grass by replacing the drive belts with tight fitting O rings from the hardware store. Both of mine have the plastic cracked but they still work fine .

I just got my1:6scalea couple weeks ago, and I love it so far. I traded an item equal to the value of $14 for it, came with an extra set of tires. The kid I got it from took off the ugly roll bars and painted it black, but did a terrible job as you can still see the sanding marks. He filled the tires with lead BBs, trimmed the body for more flex clearance (I get a little more than 8 inches out of it) So far I have been climbing all sorts of things and its very capable!

What I dont like is that its belt drive. Yes it provides slippage to avoid broken parts but the rear belt slips way to easily, and hurts it when I try to crawl. It also doesnt like to turn the wheels to the left. But I think thats from the kid I got it from. Hes been inside it, and added quick release crimp on plugs to everything. For some reason he cut the metal inner shock sliders, so they pop out if it flexes too much. He added limiting straps, but they keep the front end too low. And the tire tread plugs too easily, so Iam going to go and cut some blocks off my spare set.

Iwalked to and from this kids house to get it, and its about an hour and a half walk one way. The battery lasted the whole way then I got another 45 minutes out of it the next day. Ill have to get some pics up.

For the rear slipping . Open it up and take the drive belt to the hardware store .get an " O " ring that is smaller in length .get a couple of different sizes ,try them to see what works for not slipping . They should be real snug , the smaller ones are harder to get back on .

Heres my truck, the body has been trimmed, tires cut and reversed.




It likes to crawl, with limiting straps I get about 8 inches of articulation with 3 wheels still on the ground


Some videos, Iused some double sided foam tape to stick my camera on the hood. Unfortunately the battery was starting to die and it was lurching.

Default jeep wrangler nylint rock crawler

We just got the orange jeep wrangler nylint rock crawler large scale rcv. We have a new battery in the truck and the transmitter. Not sure if the transmitter remote is a dud as the steering wheel is broken but I would think it would still turn on and connect with the jeep. Where can I get a replacement transmitter and receiver is there a site for replacement parts? I do not know much about RCV but trying to get this going for my kid. Any help is appreciated.
