This build is a replica of my 2010 Fj CruiserTrail Teams.

Chassis - 2 sets of scx10
Axles - Rc4wd Yota axles
Drivetrain - Rc4wd 2 speed r3 transmission with mated hammer Transfer Case
Body - Nikko 1/10 scale fj cruiser
Suspension - Rc4wd shocks, Scratch built front ifs with cc01 lower control arms
Wheels - Vanquish products method 105 1.9 wheels
Tires - axial hankook dynapro tires converted to fit 1.9 wheels
Scratch built interior and engine bay from styrene.
Scratch built front bumper, rear bumper, sliders and skid plates from 3:16 brakeline and 22gauge steel plate.













The FJ has a box chassis which i copied using 2 sets of scx10 chassis with a lot of brazing and hammering.

What the hell was that?!
My favorite part is the front suspension. Or maybe it's the detailed engine bay. Or maybe the chassis... The whole thing is my favorite part.
