I built a small rock crawling course in my backyard. It’s better suited for my smaller scale crawlers but It’s fun with the larger scale ones too.
My HB Toys ZP1001 RC Rock Crawler arrived from Banggood with two broken shocks and a stripped out servo. Banggood refunded me a large portion of the cost which is more than enough to cover all the upgrades I planned on doing to this beast.
For the time being, I used Loctite super glue to temporarily fix the servo. I ordered new oil shocks from Amazon which are drastically better than the stock shocks.
I swapped the stock tires out with smaller tires off of an RGT Adventurer because I’m in the process of building an AMT 1/20 Scale Toyota model body for it and want it to look more scale. I wanted to test out the tires on my backyard course and can’t believe how much better this thing climbs with them. I did lose a little ground clearance, though.
