Default SCX-10 Dingo Cherokee

I'd been wanting one of these rigs for a while. I saw proline had a Cherokee body, Dingo was finally available as kit, and I had just put a late-model XJ in the driveway. Perfect timing!

First off, I can't stand black rims at all, and alloys on a truck are questionable. My XJ is forest green pearl, tamiya makes the closest I could find but it's more emerald than forest.




Yeah.

But I still had that D90 body to paint up, what to do with it...






I knew that old Series 3 landrover toy on my desk was a bad idea, it made me Zebra my truck. I also learned you can tell someones age by the reaction: Daktari vs Ted Nugent. Guess I need a monkey and a gun rack!

Electrics: Traxxas 4ch 2.4g radio, Tekin fx-r crawler, tekin 35t, hitech hs645mg, rc4wd bulldog 9300 winch.

TX has the 3 and 4 ch switches swapped so that ch 3 is the toggle near steering, and 4 is the rocker switch.

The horrible winch control board got swapped with an old Traxxas 2018 servo board since it uses REAL components that actually have DATASHEETS. With a tiny bit of research, and a resistor, I stretched the deadband for no chatter operation.

I am suprised at how many components in the SCX-10 kit are better than they used in my AX-10 first run kit. Guess I gotta upgrade the comp crawler more now.

Looks great. I'm running an XJ body in silver for mine.

Despite those rumors, I do in fact like scale rock crawlers. I just don't get to have them travel very often...

That's a nice looking 1:1 XJ, how much did you pick it up for and what's on the old ticker? I just picked me up one of those Dingo bodies and have started on it so be watching for a new thread posted on that soon.

Cheers!

My Thunderbird got wadded up, so it became time to move on to my real XJ that was purchased a while before i got the kit.
1999 with 4.0, auto, 231 t-case, dana axle everybody upgrades from, chrysler 8" rear. Paid $3,000 with 174,000 miles. Currently at 230,000 miles. Rockers aren't great, so that's the better side.
