In this video I explore the suspension modifications I’ve made to the Trail Finder 2 chassis in order to more closely match that of the actual Chevy Blazer.
I also highlight some of the modification you have to make to mount the body including a useful time-saving tip.
In the last few days, San Jose based scale RC manufacturers RC4WD have released a new hard body kit based on the mid 70s Chevy K5 Blazer.
The body kit is designed to fit on their existing Trail Finder 2 chassis with some minor modifications.
I’ve been lucky enough to be one of the first customers to get my hands on the kit so I took the opportunity to shoot an unboxing video. I’ll also be documenting progress of my build via video and on some of the most popular scale RC forums.
Regular readers will have noticed that my posts here have of late been few and far between. This is as a result of me finding a new passion, specifically the world of scale RC off road modeling.
I have been on somewhat of a journey over the past 18 months or so. What started with the purchase of a 1/10th scale radio controlled Axial SCX10 Jeep has snowballed in to a passion that has consumed all of my free time over the last year.
Over the coming weeks I intend to write more about this new found obsession, the tagline above did after all previously read ‘other stuff that interests me.’
I’m going to revisit some of the builds I’ve completed and share some of the techniques I’ve learnt along the way.
Here as a taster is my latest project. A Land Rover Defender 110 based on a chassis from RCModelex and scale body from RC4WD.
