Toyota Truck RC??

I have seen a few awesome Toyota Truck based RC's with leaf springs, hi lifts and they look real as hell.

Can someone give me a link to a site I can buy that model from. I am really looking for a turnkey unit that I can then modify.

Thanks,

KC

the best were the Tamiya Hilux...old school. they now make one with a similar body , but the drive train is F350 stuff. look up Tamiya Hilux and you will find 2 of them, but be prepared for a price shocker,Chuck

looks like tower is out of stock
http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...&I=LXTDR4&P=ML

should be able to find them on ebay, the tundra is also out on the same platform and it looks pretty good.. these trucks are not the best performers out of the box so you will have lots of room for modification..

Better off watching the classifieds on rccrawler. You are going to ditch close to 80% of the truck anyway.

The ones your talking about are older kits and were bitchin! someone built a mini Marlin f-toy out of one. Contact rcp crawlers.com they may be able to steer you in the right direction.

I am not the only one spending to much time reading on RCCrawler. Booger nailed with the parts list, or you could get the new tundra kit and swap body's if you are looking to run on a leaf sprung suspension. For the money the method stated by booger will net you a lot more capable crawler for about the same money.

I think the closest thing you can get to turn-key would be to buy a custom off of somebody. 2nd best would be to find a used original Hilux, Bruiser or Mountaineer......

Here's a few turnkey options: (no-one said it would be cheap!)

For $600, 2spd bruiser like rolling chassis
http://rc4wdstore.com/product_info.p...roducts_id=878

For $800, 3spd bruiser like rolling chassis
http://rc4wdstore.com/product_info.p...roducts_id=637

(edit) does anybody have any actual experience with these assemblies or piece parts? (transmissions and axles specifically). I see comments and joking and stuff about them on some of the rc pages, but haven't stumbled across any threads that actually talk about these actual parts. Maybe this is just like the precision gears thing on here. Anymore I can't figure out who's joking and who isn't.

This chassis also looks interesting, and as far as I can tell it'll probably sell for around $250-ish. I think it may be a little wide for a toyota body though.

The actual frame itself, from the new Axial rig is MSRP'd @ $75... you can use what ever axles you want then.
