Default Takom 1/16 Jeep to RC



Missing a Jeep in 1/16 for my other US RC vehicles and since I couldn't find a finished build I had to go myself.

Here is the first part of the build pictures video

and the first run test of how it can actually run

More to follow as I move forward with the project

Those WPL 1/10 d-12 chassis are really handy.... People are using them for all kind of conversions....

This is a D12 in 1/16, it fits perfectly in wide. Unfortunately, I have to have the front wheels redone as they run crooked, unfortunately I only noticed it after it was assembled.

No, it will be something bad to fix. Had given them a good hot glue before I discovered it.

But will probably update this weekend if I can get it fixed so that they will run more straight.
Will be some .....work to cut away glue

That's really cool, can't wait to see how your guys set it up for their missions.

It seems pretty wild that there wasn't already a flatfender Jeep with the big RC Tank Warfare crowd.

It also surprises me that no one has mass-produced it yet.
