HERO HONCHO HILUX
This Toyota SR5 was Joseph’s first crawler. It started as an Axial Honcho and his original plan was to add Pro-line’s 1985 Toyota Hilux body for it to be his main trail rig, but as he continued to add accessories to it and his buddy Chris at SNT GFX painted up the body Joseph decided it was far too nice to get torn up on the trails so he went full scale with the build instead, adding Pro-line’s interior set as well. Pro-line also supplied the rolling stock—class 1 Bfgoodrich Mud-terrain T/A KM3 1.9 tires—and a set of Pro-spec scaler shocks. Axles are from Vanquish: black anodized Currie VS4-10 D44s. Power comes from a 3 Brothers RC Yellowjacket 2000kv motor backed by a Castle Creations Mamba X ESC. The look is finished off with an RC4WD 5-inch light bar, an ebay sourced LED kit, and various scale items from Scale By Chris, The Scale King, RC4WD, and Pro-line Racing.
