Amazing Chassis Hacks

[Crabfu] pulled off some great chassis work on top of a remote control drivetrain. His most recent build turns the tiny traveler into a lunar rover complete with passenger and a communications array. For this he’s sourced the parts from a toy but boosted the realism with hand-painted details that leave us in awe. His previous project sourced the body from a model truck kit. Once again, it’s the paint work that makes us envious of his skills.

Both projects conceal a Losi 1/24 scale micro rock crawler that provides for some incredible locomotion. See video of both builds after the break.

  1. Trough his site I got to know Gakken’s Mechamo Centipede… way cool thing… fun to build also.
    hum, now I think about it, where did I put it?
    Time to digg it up and pimp it with a µcontroller and some sensors…

  2. If its detailed with all the fixings why not put duct tape on the right rear fender like the real one!!

    — side note crabfy has done some great work its nice to see him pop up now and then!!
