Default Custom-home made : Fj40 from Indonesia

This my third attempt build FJ40 but this my first build using tamiya body.
The originally plan is to have a stock Fj40 with much possible custom made parts such as :
- scale custom chassis
- custom tamiya body
- custom axle
- custom shock
- custom wheels
- custom winch

start to find the reference...ask google and find this pictures

Thanks pablo...

the originally plan to have narrow axle seems not achieved with axial c hub.
so we do cut the axle and make our own c hub.
