*** ***Searching*** ***
This is by no means the end all/be all and you should stop searching! There is ALOT of information on the board, and I have been 'picking' and choosing important threads out of IH talk that I feel were very informative and helpful. No, NOT all questions will be answered with this FAQ, but it is a good start and you might even find further links within these threads for help.

1. Remember that you have to have 4 characters! D44 won't work, but D44* will!
2. Try to pinpoint what you are looking for.
3. You have to be somewhat intelligent to use the search. Think hard about what you are looking for, you'll find it.
4. Wade through it all. This board has been up for quite a while. It is very easy to get 500 threads in a search.
5. 500 threads is the MAXIMUM it will return. Use the date range functionality of the search to narrow things down!

As always if you have a link to a good thread (on PBB or elsewhere) pm it to me so I can add it.

A fast an easy way to find good threads is to simply use the sorting tools located in the right hand corner right above where the threads start or you can use the Display Option field in the bottom left corner, be sure to change to From the Beginning

Rating Replies Views

These features also work great in other forums.

BTW, if you already knew this...never mind.

Nicely put together Matt! Now my wife (and boss) have YOU to blame when I waste EVEN MORE time sifting through all those Scout tech and buildup threads!!! :smokin:
Thanks. I swiped the disclaimers from the Jeep board, who stole it from the Toyota guys.

I put a little into it every day, although I do count on the board to give some ideas and links to add. I was going to link to Damian's build on his website but thought I should link to his build thread here and add a vendor section so I could link to him (and others) there.

Anyway, Ben's Newbie FAQ gave me some ideas on what to include and what not to.

are there any good resources for model comparisons. mostly looking at wheel base and approach/departure angle stuff between 80/800 and II's

Best bet for basic info like that would be www.binderbulletin.org and www.justih.org

Both the Scout 80/800 and the standard Scout II have a 100" WB. The Scout Terra (half cab 'pickup' version of the SII) and the Scout Traveler (full cab version of the Terra) have a 118" WB and were available from 1975 through 1980 (Concurent with standard SII production). Guys have bobbed Terra/Traveler Scouts to achieve a longer WB Scout II.

All versions of the Scout have basicaly the same approach angle (within a few degrees). The SII has a much crappier departure angle (stock),and the Terra/Traveler are even worse. Like with any other deficiencies, this can be remedied. Again, bobbing is popular, as is moving the axles...
