Thanks guys, It is almost done.

Looks great !! .
I need some more info on shocks, front and rear. I know they are the RC4WD duel spring bit what sizes did you use? It looks as if the rear second shock is zip tie mounted? How did you mount the fronts upper and lower? Do you have more detailed pics?

I really like the look overall. I am in the middle of one of these myself....going along the same lines as yours....updated more modern racing version.

Thanks for the info again.

Thank you very much,
I have 1x 80mm and 1x 90mm in the front and 1x original 70mm and 1x rc4wd 80mm at the rear. I could't find any way to mount the rear second shock, I made some styrene prototype mount to mount second front shocks.
I am going to take more detailed photos when I got home.
Looking forward to see your buggy.

Thanks for the info.
Are you planning on taking the stock springs out?
My plan is to use the shocks and not the springs...we'll see how it goes.

Looks very neat and tidy, especially like the double-shock setup. You gonna make inner fenders?

Thanks guys

I love the look of one shock with spring and one w/o spring setup, I only will remake the shock mounts and primer them.
I will also make inner front fenders from aluminum sheet.
Yes, double shox is an awesome choice

Should I mount the spare tire to the top or at the rear cage ?
There are lots to do on the body and I need a metal exhaust.

Your spare tire is front or rear?

if it's front, mount it on the top

if it's a rear tire, it's too big to be mounted on the roof, so mount it to the rear cage

Can I suggest you to search a VW replica plastic motor to use on this model ?

I have both front and rear spare tires with aluminum covers, I will use them both in the way you suggested

More photos of the double shock mounts;





I found a good way to mount this rear shock, will post it soon.



And how it looks from front;

great rear double shock mount
but in the front, you need something stronger

in compressing the suspension, the shoch mounted in the stock position will work right, but the secondno
Your supports have an only mounting hole to the shocks towers, so they ca move and not compressing the shock

Awesome bug and sweet shock setup!! It looks just plain sick.

I ended up using a servo mount to hold the bottom in place. The stock shock hoop on the scx10 allows for doulbe shocks so it was only a matter of securing the bottoms.





the same is done on my hilux



I love Fox Shox so much i bought some for my self

comparo shot of RC4WD VS FOX

Thanks guys

@salmonfacesalad; thanks posting the photos, you have a great setup. by the way what shox do you have on the bronco ? looks like paint removed rc4wd shox.

@Banana; I have tighten the screws so the mounts are not moving and they work good, but I need to remake the mounts these are for the appearance only.
