Finally, getting around to doing this, video i’ve had this wpl for maybe six months. I got it out of the box ripped it apart, left it in pieces in a box in my garage for a long time and then. Finally, last week i was like bro, you got to get this thing put together and do a video so that’s. What i’m doing right now let’s see how this thing does Music, all right. So, while i’m running this video i’ll just kind of give you a little bit of what i did to this um, what i didn’t do to it! What i would do to it um this was a white version of this wpl i got it. Uh ran a couple times was, like i don’t know about this, put it away for a while started doing some research on other people doing wpl work and was like holy crap dude. These could be sick um. So this is a work in progress, but let me tell you what i’ve done to it. I just did a paint job on it with the red i left the wpl sticker on the side there. I thought that looked kind of cool um. I got a toyota sign sticker from a dude on ebay and i put it on almost perfectly, but not perfectly got some other stickers on there. I put a reefs 99 servo in this um. I painted the rims there um. What else did i do? That’S it? That’S all i did on this, the rest of it is it’s, got the plastic steering links in it same motor same little, remote i’m thinking about upgrading the motor, maybe even putting a different esc in there um and seeing how slow this thing can really go.
Um upgrading the tires – obviously i don’t understand why they send these tires with this kit, or this model, apparently um there’s a set of tires for the kit model that are really soft um. I wish they would have just sent those with this one that would have been badass but all good, um yeah, so that’s. Basically, what i did on this one. It runs pretty good it’s, not the best. If you look right there, okay, so you can see the reefs in there and it’s like give it give it to me. I can take it steering links whack and there is a lot of bump steer on this um. I saw a video of a guy fixing. It i think that the metal linkage and stuff on the bottom would probably fix that maybe um, but i think i’m gon na leave this one alone as it is. I think i’m gon na get a kit model and then just take what i learned: building this one, putting it together, um and then doing another one and seeing um how how much better it can be i’m gon na do a flip. A little 38 point turn here because i don’t think i’m gon na get underneath the bridge there and i don’t want to rip that thing out of the ground. Let’S see if i can get up this side. I like how i’m pretending, like i don’t, know that i’m not gon na make it at this Music.
I’M, not gon na make it up. This see how my toyota signs just a little bit saggy on the right hand, side i’m, so mad about that that’s. One good thing i do like about this hobby is, i feel like it teaches you to be patient and that’s kind of something that i struggle with. So i do rush through things sometimes, and then you know you regret it so, hopefully the next time i do some toyota signage. On the back of my truck, i won’t rip the bag open with my teeth and stick it on immediately, without even thinking about it morning: gravel roads, scenic route. My course, though y’all i put this thing together in like four hours, i’ve, never built anything like this. Before my wife thinks i’m insane, maybe one of the best things i’ve ever done for myself getting into this hobby come on. Steering let’s go Music there’s. A lot of the shocks actually do pretty good on this. I was surprised when i, when i just hold them all this rig is kind of like, but watching it in action. I mean there’s a lot of there’s a lot of movement there yeah. Definitely if i get some more squishy tires on this thing, maybe fix this uh steering linkage. This thing might be pretty badass put a little winch on there. Don’T follow me, you won’t make it. You won’t make it, but i did anyway, if you’re out there trying to look for a cheap rig that turned into something special.
I think you should definitely do this.
