  • Busted's CR-01 based Scout

    Ok...this is up without pics for a bit as I left the camera at home, and my cable modem is dead until Comcast comes to revive it this week.


    Anyways....

    On Saturday at the ABC GTG, I drove Rckcrwlr's CR-01...and after way too much poking proding, and pestering by Lewis and Rockbound, I decided that I had to get a scaler.

    Walked out Sat from ABC with the CR-01 under arm.

    Started the build at 6ish pm and finished up around 3am.


    I didn't care for the FJ body, and the wheelbase on the CR-01 is perfect for an Ambush Threw on the old Ambush body as I am prepping the new one.

    Thanks to CrawlerKing, I have the loaner 1.9 hummers with stompers!

    Thanks to Lewis, we got it rolling with a rooster crawler and Novak 55 motor.

    Lewis and ran up at AIDs yesterday...wow is this a fun truck!!! I love having a lexan bodied scaler...stupid hard lines abound when you have no hardbody to hold you back As lewis can atest, I was having some issues with remembering that this is not a comp rig and no it will not do that line


    Plans:

    Post pics later today tom...

    Ambush Body, complete with lights, a NICE paint job by me, Scale Offroad emblems, metal grille, and a few other touches.

    My own set of stompers and wheels .

    Winch...maybe a Scale Offroad winch...

    35T warrior for more cowbell

    Custom bumpers front and rear.

    Waterproofing to keep up with Rockbound and Lewis our resident u-boat commanders


    I will post pics of progress as I go along. Only thing that will be shot after it is all done is the paint on the body

    I like. I'm tired of all stock builds allready! It's gonna look nice as a Harvester.

    I had to pick one up to, and was wondering what body to run.

    Them stompers should fill up the wheelwells real nice.

      The wheel base on the CR-01 is perfect for any body with about 11.25 inch wheelbase. Plus I love how you can easily adjust the wheel base on the chassis and still keep the retained coils

      The body I have on there now is the old comp scout body, so the stompers look too small but on my stock scout body they look killer

          I know I am slacking, I will get pics up soon. You know the scout body I am using, you have 1.9 stompers, and you saw Dad's CR01. Go to Imgination Land and build the truck...

                        Yeah, but that is to be expected with this crowd

                        Haha, that is what it is...the scaler with the old comp body on it. Would look really scale with 2.2s on it

                        But in all seriousness, the comp body is what I have for the moment, until I can paint, wire, and put my other goodies on the virgin scout body.

                        I am hoping to do paint, and maybe my bling from Germany this weekend. Possibly lights too, that way I am ready for the comp
