Tamiya Toyota Land Cruiser 40 (GF-01 Chassis) with a few

Bought one of these recently and just finished it and given it first run this afternoon. note that it’s not stock as I’ve changed the and ESC and fitted proper shocks not to the Wild Willy 2 wheels and

Ran it for a half hour non stop in the heavy grass in the back and couldn’t be more pleased it. Impressed with the chassis, stable and handles really and has a nice tight turning Ideal for tight spaces. Yes it easily on hard surfaces, but is controllable. Runs nice and In the heavy grass while it start to wheelie easily the wheel at the back would in the grass and bring it back right away. Corners out without tipping over, drifts a bit wide. Running something just half an high (edge of patio will get it a foot or more in the air but it flat nearly every Heaven knows what it do over a ramp.

The 25t Torque Tuned motor the kit with isn’t bad, but I to use an Etronix 27t Sport Tuned A bit faster but still a fairly torquey motor and it is rebuildable. replaced the aluminium pinion a steel one. Proper fitted all-round of course. surprised at how much quieter it with the Etronix motor. hear the motor and gearbox at all the truck is running around. a nice change from RC’s I could mention.

Didn’t care for the wheels and that came with the just didn’t look and the rubber wasn’t that Sold them on eBay and up a set of Wild Willy 2 wheels and for about the same price. just seem to go better the kit. Don’t know why didn’t use them in the first

You could fit shocks if you wanted as there is suspension travel but the angle of the is extreme and the increased height make the truck less

Before painting the body I around at pics of 1:1 Land pickups and have copied the scheme of one I liked. Surprisingly a lot of the 1:1 have body colour and not white ones so I decided to go way as it makes it a bit different. Also the wheel arches are body not black as recommended in the kit. didn’t use the black decal that fit between cab and the bed as it just awkward and overdone.

Finally replaced the hard wheelie wheel at the back a rubber one obtained from a robot shop. Found I had a Midnight Pumpkin that change made it run straighter wheelieing.

One reason I really the 4WD GF-01 chassis compared to the / Midnight Pumpkin is it’s to get through thick grass or surfaces that would bog the LB / Pumpkin. Also handles much better. Wonder if will do a longer wheelbase Lunchbox. Now that would be

Think this is going to be my all favourite back yard it’s just simply so fun.
