Fórmula juguete ciento once

Traded my 1 ton yota for FToy 111. So far i like it. gonna change some things on it to make it my own.
When i got it home this is what it looked like.

with a little bit of grinding on it, got all the stickers off and gave it a coat of new paint. Gonna paint the tube black.

Order my 12v guy switch panel yesterday for it since i am going to be cleaning up the wiring on it, figure i might as well re-wire the whole thing. Ordering me a rear bench seat for it tomorrow so the kidos can go with me. gonna have to redo the exhaust so i can get the seat back there. Got the winch wired in with a on/off/on toggle, but will redo that when the switch panel comes in. Might add a little stinger on it but havent decided on that yet. Thinking about flipping the rear springs around to give it a little bit more wheelbase. Gonna redo the tranny tunnel so i can put my triple sticks on it and it rattles like a bitch right now. Redo the track bar since it rattles like a bitch also. Then after that gonna leave it the hell alone.
Got it loaded up and ready to go put some scratches on it soon.

nice ftoy. painting the tube black is key. then you can just paint the panels to change or modify the look. also, mike hendrix has a grill for the front that will make it look alot better.

Guess I could post a updated pic of it.

After taking it out a couple times. Future plans now are 3 link the front, 4 link the rear and go full hydro. Maybe even try out a set of 39" reds.

Go-faster?
Have extra money burning a hole in your pocket?

tired of hearing the leafs pop back into place after having it flexed.
no desire to go any faster....it is called rock crawling not rock hauling ass

i like my 37" reds but would like to run a little bit taller tire
why would you run the 39's on leafs and not links?

Link it!

I wish I would have linked mine a long time ago. When I can afford to link the front I will.

I don't feel like I need links for 39's. I'd run them for ground clearance. Not that 107" wheelbase and 36's and a low center of gravity has hurt much.

I'll grab 39's if I can find a set for a steal; it's not enough of a "need to" to buy some at full retail.

If I wanted to go fast like chvyhs, I'd go links and coilovers. Coils are easier to tune for weight bias than leaves--not that it can't be done with leaves, either.

got an update. gave it a new paint job and gonna throw some tons under it. got a dodge dana 60 for the front, a shaved 14 bolt in the rear. got the dodge since its only a 1/2" wider than the 14 bolt. TG 4 link kit in the rear with 18" air shocks and gonna leave the front on leaves for now. going full hydro. Eventually gonna 3 link the front using the 14" coilovers ive got but i dont want to be down very long.

got the front back down sitting on it own weight

got the 4 link mocked up and tacked together then did a text flex.



right now my wheelbase is sitting at 108 but im gonna push the front out 2" to make it 110.

and my 4 year old son has been begging to go with me so i messed around lastnight and was seeing how good i can get him strapped in a seat. Once i put the seat back in ill make him sit in it and see how good and tight i can get him strapped in.
