TOPIC: CR-01 FJ40 with hop-ups

CR-01 FJ40 with hop-ups 7 years 7 months ago #8795

I got myself a Cr-01 in a trade. I swapped my F350 high lift that was heavily modified, for this CR-01.







She was in excellent condition, the usual bumps, scratches and bruises. First thing I did was install my 21.5 turn brushless motor on the hop-up motor plate, and install that into the gearbox.

Next I striped the rims and tires, and resprayed the rims. As you can see the rims in the picture are standard black. I sprayed the rim Tamiya Gun Metal, and the beadlocks Plascon Sea Blue.



I added about 90 grams of weight in each tire, the put the whole thing back together again. All those little screws are killer on the fingers.





More to come. All the parts are on order from eBay, so they will arrive in about 7 days.

If you know anyone else who'd be up for a swap Hilux High-lift for an FJ40 CR01, I'd be up for it

Just thought I'd pop this body on the CR-01 until I learn to drive it a bit better. She is very top heavy, and I don't want to ruin the Toyota FJ Cruiser body, they a bit on the expensive side.









I should be getting my hop-ups soon, then the real fun begins.

As usual, I went and bought things before I knew what I was buying. I went and bought the stabilizer spring before I knew I didn't need them...

This is the articulation without those little springs installed:





Much better...
