Grim Reapers Shorty 5B
« on: June 05, 2013, 02:48:10 PM »
Well since getting the Baja I've definitely got the bug big time and seeing all the shorty builds on here, it seems like so much fun I just have to have one lol.

I'm in no rush so I will just be building it up from scratch and I'll add parts as I get them. You've gotta start somewhere I guess so I picked up Stu's old chassis which came with the scorpion mounts. I plan on painting it a high gloss black, when time permits lol. I've got the rear chassis plate, underguard and body shell coming next month.

One of my mates is converting his Baja to electric in a couple of months, so I'll be getting a heap of stuff from him, including a Zen 27.2cc donk.

So stay tuned

I bloody hope so Brad.  Hehe funny that, I've got a feeling that most of the parts for this build will be sourced from forum members, might have to rename it as the lsd forum shorty *rofl*

Twas my last chance to have a tinker for a while, made a little progress. In about a months time or so, I'll be adding a few more parts, inclduing: rear chassis plate and skid plate, body shell, shocks and front foams and tyres.
