Default The Mog

Decided to do a little thread on my mog and the history of this build. I always liked Mogs, had an scx10 based mog that I always regretted selling so I decided to do another and vowed to keep this one! I liked what Bert over at A&M was doing with some custom mog builds so after a few messages back and forth he whipped this badboy chassis up. It is based on SCX10.2 running gear.Over the coming days I will post how the build progressed over time.

Chassis finished and in my hands, I gave it a few coats of Rustoleum black to make it pretty. Powdercoat would have been a better choice but didnt want to spend the money on it. The rattlecan has held up ok over the years.

Gave the body an outside coat of krylon fusion in a nice superlight powderblue, VP curries front and rear, mip drivelines sidewinder 3 esc, castle bec, tekin 35t motor and a tekin servo. Added black styrene to cover gaps and make some mounting points for scale stuff. Can never have enough scale stuff lol. Put 1.9x4.75 proline krawlers on some ebay wheels I had laying around.

Broke it in up at Washington Park. Performed pretty well. The bigger tires scraped on the body in some situations but overall did great. Added a loops rc snorkel before this run.

An interior was needed so an old tf2 dash, some styrene, a wraith seat and a raid of my wifes sewing supplies I was good to go! I also went with the og pitbulls for a more scale look.

The previous pics show how the krylon doesnt work well on lexan, the body flexes and the paint chipped off. I got a new cab and airbrushed a coat of plastic model paint on the outside followed by a coat of matte varnish to protect the paint. Came out pretty good.

I changed wheels out to RC4WD Humvees, (my fingers still hate me) and 1.7 4.19 RC4WD Goodyear MTRs. That worked out to about 19.5 wheel and 41.5 tires in 1:1 scale. I like the more scale look.

After comping a few times in class 2 on the 4.19s it was obvious I needed slightly larger tires to be more competitive. Proline heard me and gave the perfect Mog tires! The 1.9 Grunt! Now the scale look and performance are coming together!
