Default Heng Guan HG P402 4x4 rolling chassis kit

Hey scalers! I think this belongs in 2.2? maybe?

I haven't built a whole new rig since sometime before we had kids 6 years ago and I feel like my sanity deserves a fun scale-ish build. There are many lovely scale kits and RTRs out there these days but I wanted the challenge of the cheapest rolling chassis I could find. This brought me to the HG P402.
The kit arrived this week and so far I've unboxed it and had a good look over the bits. Looks good for the price:



Picture from banggood for those who aren't familiar with the platform:

I'll update my thread as I put it together... providing either of the kids ever go to sleep. Feel free to ask questions, I'll do my best to answer.

I looked at the 6x6 version a dozen times easy lol. I'll be keeping eye on this to see how it goes for you.

I ordered a second one "by accident" the other day. They put the price down to $115CAD AND I could get another 10% off buy ordering through the Android App (first order through the app gets 10% off I think).

So even if I use the second one as a decoration or only a 100% complete set of parts I consider it probably worthwhile.

For the curious, and my own record, the sidewall-to-sidewall width of the truck is about 9.25 inches and the wheelbase is adjustable a little around the 11 inch mark. Once I get all my links attached I can give a better length measure.

Well... do you know how sometimes you get sick of waiting for parts?

Time for a fresh new update on the P402. I managed to score a Radio Shack Rammunition truck off of kijiji nearby for $50cad. This truck included the Dodge hard body, a Traxxas tq2 2.4ghz radio system, and a Traxxas xl5 esc. That's about the bargain of the year in my opinion. I immediately put the xl5 and hard body to use!

If anyone's still interested..... The Gmade Komodo Body fits on this with just a small stretch of the Rear Suspension Links! I couldn't tell you about Body Posts, as I have no use for holes in my Bodies! :P
Length and width wise, it's a good fit.

BTW, this is a 1.9 Rig......
