I thought why not take a hard body and put it out on a hard rock trail, it's going to be down to driver ability today and, of course, some limitations of having a super scale truck. But I have to tell you my friend super scale. Realism is also very very cool. Now I have the LC 70 Land Cruiser, which is a Toyota body, or a really a cool Australian outback truck here I will be getting some different types of accessories for it in the future, but today will just have to go unorthodox and put an ATV in The back because one of the viewers asked for me to put an ATV in the back of the truck, and I thought why not it's a pretty low vehicle anyway, and it has a two stage – transmission, so I'll, be crawling very slowly. Today. Try not to roll over and going through these gate workers that I've set up about 14 to 15 inches apart just kind to kind of laying out a trail for me and really. This Rock course is built for dedicated rock crawlers, not so much super scale. Realism trail crawlers themselves, so, but I enough chat let's get on the on the move here. One thing I want to say is: I did turn my steering speed or my steering servo speed right down. So I have more of a realistic. You know like speed. Instead of going back and forth really quick, you know now it moves a little bit slower.
I was able to do that on my radio, so I thought I'd share it with you. So the first climb is a doozy I'm in low gear. I'Ve got a Tekin 40 turn hand wound, which means a higher torque brushed motor in there. My goal is not to touch the gates today. I hope that happens. I'M gon na have to line up perfectly here. A nice slow, crawl, Oh, fell in a hole that's. Okay, look at this straight up I'm, going to adjust the camera so it's just one shot for you guys, sorry about the shakiness but it's worth it. Look at this no mud and the tires. No dirt nice and sticky slow crawl go as fast as necessary, but as slow as possible. So here we are with a pretty severe drop down now, if my tyres come any further forward in this area, here, it's actually on quite a slant, so I'd be rolling. The body right away, so I want to kind of try to ride the front axle pumpkin and the drive shaft, but I got to be kind of quick about it again as fast as necessary. You'Re also going to get hung up, but I don't want to smash my front. Bumper. Oh hung up yeah trying to get some momentum here. Nothing oh come on almost okay rolling it forward. Are we still going to have a rollover? I think so. Yep darn it it's kind of had to hope for the best.
There worked out, though quite a backdrop. Well, the tail was hung up, but we cleared the gate that took a few attempts. All right, coming up to an unsteady rock, normally heavier rigs, will move this rock like that. This rig isn't too heavy, though it's, pretty average and you're that beautiful crawl ability. Here we go with another huge drop down: okay in scale feet. This has to be about 12 feet, I would say just judging from the size of the 110 scale, crawler I'm going to have a hang up again here, transfer case you can see, have a look up here here. Look at the transfer case now: it's made of aluminum and that's nice and strong, but I'll tell you. It sure is hard to slide on the rock, but no big deal see if I can just kind of inter down here. Oh yeah, a little tilting right now. Oh darn, it a little problem again. Music. You can see. My truck is actually kind of tilt shifting there and as soon as that, oh nice, we got a good landing. I was going to say as soon as the drive shaft hits, that rock it kind of spins us, but it looks like I'm, got some clearance beautiful, look at the belly clearance now in between the rocks not too bad at all, filming them driving one hand each Here here's another now here's, where you got to worry about dropping your hard bodies over right when you've got quite a bit of clearance under your tire and you're trying to do a drop down.
If the drop down is too much, you can end up with a rollover. Let'S see if I can pull this off. I don't I don't think I want to do this but I'm going to go forward. Do that I'm closing the gap between the tire and the rock and it's still not over flexing a lot of people are stuck on thinking articulation is, is the key thing to a scale truck, but really, if you have too much – and it can actually flip you Over or get you stuck there, we go beautiful nice, low, crawl, approaching a bigger rock at the top there, which I have to crawl immediately good my tails not getting caught on the new body. Oh got a little bit of gon na have to back up here. Oh, no, I didn't. Oh awesome, Oh got it, the gate went flying and I would have got points for that. Taken away or added to my score depends on who's doing the scoring. Of course oh don't be so careful medic, Oh nope, can't save it I'm gon na say that gim me unfortunately, today up and over that's too bad, I could have kept going at it, but I don't want to break this body it's brand new. There we go crawling pretty well, though falling pretty well. Here is a big piece of scalloped rock a little bit uneven again, putting us on an angle here's, where increased articulation would help.
If I had a little bit more drop in my front tire, I wouldn't be as worried about flipping the truck like that. You got to be quick on your feet. Okay, let's! Try that again, I wanted to back up and get a different approach angle anyway, but the problem is: is that even if I come down here, sooner I'm still going to have this drop to contend with, which is going to want to roll my whole body forward? So ideally, I'm going to ride the outside wall, even though I still might roll so right up on the outside, oh nice and I'm, going to start turning into it. I still think we're at a roll risk right now because of my front tire. So, instead of I'm going to be turning this way and trying to follow the rock, even though I still could roll is it too hard? Oh man, that's close turning my tire, oh yeah, okay, fast is necessary as slow as possible and boy. I seem to like doing slanted drop downs. A lot does it makes it hard not a lot of helper rocks here's some, oh there's, my hang up spot again and I don't want to bind anything right. I got to be careful of my axle, so I don't want to bind the tires just want to touch. Oh don't don't turn my truck don't turn it Applause, yeah I'm, going to have to help it here and get it down this way.
No again, the hang up spot so let's back it up I'm going to have to go at it more aggressively a man with an ATV I'll. Take that all day you have to often powers and do like a 10 point turn here. Whoo got a little glitch going on there wonder what happened here's, where I wish. I had those slider rails, it's. Okay, though it fared pretty well few, scratches not a big deal. Okay, coming in on a dirty incline here, lots of dirt on the rocks. Why does that matter? Well because it starts your back tires or your tires slipping and sliding let's see. Can I reposition and go up higher on the upper round rock Music choosing my line? Oh there we are very nice, certainly not looking as steep as it is on camera, but still a nice and easy straight through coming through to a very challenging area. Here you can see it's a bit of a canyon in the back up, try to get the nose of the truck a little bit more over Oh getting a bit of glitch there. I wonder what's going on trying to ride a tire on each side. There we go Oh No down, I go and I back out of it. This is why I fold my mirrors in kind of stuck. Oh there we are tight squeeze straight into the rocks. Glad my tail didn't get hung up there, my tailgate, so this is going to be hard up onto a slanted rock I'm going to back you up a little bit, so you can see slowly.
Climate well done, Toyota, Music Applause, Music – that was a great rock climb. Coming across the side, he'll try not to roll, as I come off of the rock and coming into an extreme side hill, almost at its limit whoa that's, close okay, now look at this bridge. I want you to like have a look at how I've approached the bridge we're going to go in closer here. We go slow there and I see the rock moves now. Do I have enough traction, I do Oh nice and slow as slow as possible as fast as necessary. It'S such a beautiful truck both in scale, realism and in scale appearance like it crawls the crawl ability of this rig is super great. Look at this all the way up to the top rock, and this was a very difficult terrain – guys thanks a lot for joining me today. Hopefully, you've enjoyed the look at the trail finder with the long wheelbase version. It is a 4×4, the killer body I got at Asia T's. You can also get a bundle pack from RC 4 wheel, Drive and I'll post a link in the video description box. In case you guys want one or more information yeah, and so there you go I'm actually very happy with this truck. It just looks fantastic out on the rocks. I look forward to taking it out onto the trail.
