This is a 1/20ish scale Land Rover Defender 90. I used stock Losi Micro axles and built another custom frame and chain drive transfer case. Main shaft is 3mm and rides in ball bearings. I designed the frame around the plastic body that I got from ebay Europe. It is NOT the common 1/10 scale Gelande. This little guy has a 5" wheel base.

The front bumper and all the roof rack and ladder is soldered brass. Rear bumper has threaded holes to adapt a small camera. Everything is mounted with screws, even the roof racks. No glue was used.

This month is the 5th anniversary of this build. It still works perfectly.

Redcat volcano epx. She's a lil dirty. But so far so good. It's taken a helluva beating and is still kicking.

Working on a custom body for this, but recently finished breaking in the engine so thought I'd share a topless pic.
