Default 1/10 Land Rover Defender D90 on Axial SCX10

I could call this my dream build. I have always been a D90 fan and since I've always wanted to build a 1/10 version ever since I got into scale RC.

I had an option to choose from a Tamiya CC01, Tamiya High Lift and an Axial SCX10 TR. After a lot of research and performance evaluation, I have decided to fot the ebay procured D90 hard body on the SCX10. I have also ordered a bunch of other scale parts and I think the SCX10 will make an ideal chassis for this body. From what I've learnt, the SCX10 is easy to modify and has heaps of aftermarket hop-up options. Also, the other two are scalers and the SCX10 TR is not exactly a scale body.

Stay tuned for a step-by-step build series and videos.

Below are the photos of the D90 body on each chassis for a wheelbase comparison for those who want to attempt this build on these chassis.

I'm using junfac wheels and Tamiya high lift tyres. I also have a 3-racing winch which I will place in the stock bumper minus the aluminium plates. the biggest challenge is to get the wheelbase correct. Will update you in that soon.

I know there hasn't been any activity on this thread, but I just happened to stumble across it.

If you have any updates, start a thread in the Scale 1.9 section. People will pay attention to it there. Something like this doesn't belong in the rock crawler section.

Good luck!

I wonder if you could help

I have a CC01 chassis and have extended the axel and lengthens the prop shaft.

What I can't seem to find out is how to fit my newly purchased Defender body to my chassis. I have some reference photos but they do not give a step by step guide.

Is this something you can help with?
