BUILD INFO:

James Mcilroy here from Arizona this is my C1 TF2 K5 trail truck. Finely got the K5 the way I wanted it she is a good all-around trail rig. It was a fun build. I love my Chevy’s and I like scale looking rigs. I want to make this K5 like a 1:1 you would see in your home town.

TF2 K5 is powered by a 1080 Hobbywing ESC and 45 Turned Motor. BoomRacing 8mm hex wheel spacers lock in the Gear Head Revolvers all the way around wrapped in some 1.55 RC4WD Iroc tires. Terraflex Z-Box’s in the rear attached to leaf springs with some 100 mm adjustable scale shocks. To get the wheel speed just right there is a nice 2 speed transmission. Getting the proper line while on the trail is done with the use of a Hitec HS7954 steering servo.

 My Ascender has a Custom made chassis by Jerry Kaleita with C3 R/C a local guy and good friend of mine makes nice cages and light buckets for the K10 crawler. King 100mm shocks keep the ride just right while a Dynamite ESC Hobbywing 45T motor keep things at a steady pace on the trail. A Savox steering servo points the 1.9 Super Swampers in the right direction. Rock lights down below and overhead light up the night all the way around this rig.

James did all the rust with a paint brush and Q tip…… {No airbrushing here} The front stays aligned with a 3 link while a 4 link takes care of the rear. Scale is the name of the game here with a Jack, Gas Can, and Storage Box and let’s not forget about the mandatory Gun Rack in the rear window! …
