    Toyota F-toys have always been on my want to build.

    So much so I’ve bent a bunch of metal up and planned of using a scx10 frame as I have a couple. Then life’s  got busy and motivation has waned but the itch is still there.

    I also feel to do it justice as it’s so exposed it needs the most accurate chassis.

    Bruiser chassis are few and far between so I figured I’d get the hpg clone.

    Funds in PayPal were needed so I sold a couple of bits on eBay and started looking.

    A complete chassis with hangers is about £40

    Then it’s axles and gearbox and it’s pretty much all that’s needed.

    As luck would have it a roller came up on eBay with pit bulls ssd bead locks and a bunch of metal work.

    I asked about the axles before the auction finished and was pleasantly surprised that the backs the bruiser ruptor

    I won it and here we go.

    Planetary gearbox ordered. The rest is spares

    I’ve got two weeks to get it running for the 1st comp of the year but not holding much hope.

    That’s a nice find and a mighty good looking truck already.

    Yeah, the guy who built it has an eye for the trucks. He had a nice MST Toyota lc70 that I missed. I’m hoping to utilise this and do the F-Toy.
