Well, I finally got me a 4x... ppicked it up for $150... gonna be a good learning project.. Gonna drop my 85 360 in it... and build it from the frame up... Just don't know the direction to go with it yet....Prob going to put the 85 P/U cab on this frame just to simplify wiring... ;D

I thought i got a good deal.. I looked into just getting the parts needed to convert my 85 frame into 4x. and parts alone would have run me over $400-600. So I thought $150 wasn't too bad to get what I needed... tranny/transfer case, frame, front & rear axels. The body doesn't matter... I know i'm gonna have to come up with drive shafts.. (might be easier to have some made) But there is a lot of junk in this r/c body... will see what treasure lies within soon...LOL

BTW.. If anyone needs sideR/C glass... I have 2 sets ready to go...

Found out a lil more info about this R/C.. Found the dealer paperwork on it... its got the "anti-spin" rear differential w/ 3.21 gears. The tranny is a 727, the T/C is a 241... now to put all this together to make a toy...

kinda got it cleaned up.. the frame & runnin gear look good. Now to get the body off and go from there... gonna start from the frame up.. It will be a lot easier to put the engine in if there is nothing in the way.. ;D

Hey Toy... i could use some driveshafts.. I don't have any for a 4x.. When i get the r/c body off. I have to put a reguler fuel tank in it.. (Unless I can get this fuel pump to work that is in this tank & put a pressure regulater on it) then drop my 360 in. After I get the engine in, then I can drop the cab on and wire everything up then fire it up . ;D

i paid $250 for it but it was complete. i was fixing it up but it kinda just fell apart. i'm using a lot of the parts on my 80 trail duster but eventually i'd like to put a truck cab on the frame and make it into a trail rig.
