Default 1/6 yamaha rhino project

for over 2 years ive had a 1/6th rhino 660 literally collecting dust.
back in 06 truckerbuddy started 2 seperate build attempts....but like most of us....never finished.
just today i was looking at how the width of my mid 90's nitro rs4 suits this body well.
they were both dust collectors anyway.
so here we go.....and it will be converted to electric,maybe a old fashioned pede tranny....hardly see those used anymore.
maybe emaxx 2 speed.....who knows where this will go!
for sure a lift kit,tires,wheels,lights....ect.

i agree on tires just a lil bigger,kinda going for a rhino with maybe a 2 inch lift.
gonna build a front driveshaft,finish the rear,lock the vxl dif,put thick fluid in the rs4 evo 3 diffs....ect.
maybe make a new steel chassis later on with bumpers and a steel cage.

nothing fancy though....im broke.

i got the shaft.
rear shaft is done,front shaft is about half way there.gotta bore an aluminium sleve and thread it to lock the 2 half shafts together.
the front shaft is a traxxas half and a duratrax evader rear shaft with a custom pin made to work on the rs4 diff cup.

the seats for my lil girls razor mod e300 scooter,i got it apart the esc went out.waiting for a new one to come in the mail.
i though about converting it to 36 volts,bigger esc,motor...ect.
theres a few forums dedicated to hopping up lil electric scooters.200 lb men going 50 mph on kids scooters is badarse...but i got enough hobbies at the moment.lol.

thanx for the props.
i have no new updates,a friend stoped by.....we drank more than a few ,so no progress on the rhino.
well i did install the driveshaft,along with set screws to lock everything.
