X4 Restore

Well I got the itch and went and dug out the beat up X4 I had sitting in my rc storage bins.

Got it running again with the stock motor using a small 72mhz rx and a 'decased' Losi mini esc from a MLST. Pic of the her nekkid:



I'm going to setup with a small speky rx and with a brushless from hacker (when it arrives).

Also found a great body since I want to make it a drifter, here's a pic of the skyline being painted...


So far it runs really well on 2 cell lipo, the hacker should be awesome...

I'm actually out of Chicago, have some family that lived exactly in Rochester Hills for years, (moved to another part of MI) so I know of the area.

Body painting mostly done, I'll post pics of it once the clearcote dries enough for handling. Lights are going to take some time, and the hackers should be in this week for the brushless conversion (though I think I'm going to have to machine some parts to make it fit right.

I'm not sure why it took so long but I'm just rediscovering how well this little thing handles and runs once setup right. I hope I can still find tires for it...

If you need tires I believe you can still contact ABC Hobbies directly. I can give you the e-mail address if you need it.
