XTM Baja converted to Rally car. 15 years ago!


I bought this XTM Baja 4WD truck in February 2003. I changed the wheels to some rally types and added a Subaru body, then put it on a shelf for display. It has never been used. No fuel, no batteries in the radio, even the antenna was not unraveled, lol.

Well, the tires are now flat spotted but I think they will get round again. I have made adjustments to the suspension and steering because from the factory it was off, glued the tires, checked all screws for tightness, and adjusted the shock pre-load.

I will now balance the wheels/tires, and then the engine will start its break-in process.

I have decided to stay old skool with the stock Hitec 75Mhz radio system.

It was cool going through the original box, and manuals, and time warping back 15 years to when this was a current production vehicle sold by Hobby Shack.

It's just another one of my collection of glow fuel engine powered cars and trucks I have and want to get running.
