    Thought I best do a Build Thread for this.
    I was lucky enough to be in a Position to get hold of one of these.
    It’s Currently on route and hopefully will be here this week.

    Plans are to use an RC4wd Gelande 2 Chassis and running gear.

    I’ve Always wanted to build Clarksons Range Rover from the Bolivia Expedition.
    I’m going to go with the Modified Version Lifted, bigger wheels etc blah de blah.
    To fit into Class 1 Specifications

    Now i’m no Range Rover Anorak the first thing that I need is a PaintCode or name for the Red if anyone can help with that i’d be very greatfull.

    Other problem I have is the Black 10 hole wheels.
    Rc4wd Pro 10’s are close but are 6 lug and well its not the done thing.
    Any ideas anyone?
    Short of getting something custom made which I can do but would rather not.

    more very soon.

    I think that it might be Masai red, but my eyesight with specific colour`s isnt that great.

    Only things I can think of would be to cut the wheel centre out and put a new piece of metal in and then re-drill for the 1.9 5 lug hexs from RC4WD (these) you could probably get away with just doing the front part of the wheel and just drilling the rears to suit. Alternatively silver solder up the existing holes and re-drill again to suit the 5 lug hex.

    I think your right
    I was considering the sdi ones with a positive offset, there 5 lug and pretty close in design

    Would that be this style (these are the -5 ones)

    I think it would be worth the work involved in modifying the pro 10’s :whistle:

    GCM do some 5stud wheels and have the slot mags that are very similar to the wolfrace ones i had on my old RR. Also do a 8 hole one too

    I may go with a gcm chassis again too as i like my other two cross canyons. Or there is the axial CONVERSION combo at a decent price.

    There should be a law against putting anything axial under a body like that…… Haha
