    Cool New Summit creation 1/5 scale Apacolyptic Camaro

    Here are some images of my Work in Progress Apocalyptic Camaro. Keeping with theme (use only what I can scavenge) i only used items that I had used on other RC creations in the past. This based on the traxxas summit that I expanded 3 inches giving a 1/5 scale size of 30 in long / 18 in Wide / 12 in tall.

    I used parts from my EMAXX, Stampede, Apache, OFNA Buggy and some custom ones I made

    STILL MORE TO DO before I finish it.......

    It's stock 775 the moment.... I'm thinking about adding a 2200kv brushless but may not... Got to see how it runs.... I'll try to get some images of inside..

    Wow, now all you need are hood mounted machine guns, and a crushing front bumper. (And a Mad Max figure to stick inside).

    Looks like fun! Externally the camaro body would match going to a brushless setup, but summits run really nice in their intended multifunction niche with the stock setup, or even DeWalt-ed.
    What broke, uh, needs upgrading now?

    thanks Mike... I was all show and no go.... it was when i tried to take a "toy" and add hobby grade parts... I had added a traxxas 12t motor and wp servo from my stampede, but the gearing was so bad in the toy grade tranny it stripped it out using it on training mode with a 6 cell nimh battery ( and gave me a whole 5MPH top speed) so, it became a shekf queen... well my shelf became full so I sacrificed it....

    anyway, thanks it was pretty to look at that was all.
