  • Gettin it since 1990
Looks awesome. Back to the ticket though. I got a ticket in my old 4runner for no mud flaps, broken tail light, and no rear bumper. I went to get it signed off and they wouldn't because I didn't have a rear bumper and I told them I'm not putting one on. So they told me either put one on or go see a state ref about it. I went to the ref and he said since the 4runner is registered as a commercial vehicle because of the removable hard top that I wasn't required to have a rear bumper. He said since they were offered from the factory with no bumper and there is a solid frame behind the sheet metal it is fine. That was in CA though, B.C. probably has different laws...  :twocents:

time to let the RIM/TIRE games begin. i originally built a tire for my scaler to be as close to my 1:1 as possible. nothing at the time on the market was even close.  then came ,finially the 1.9 tsl sx swamper.   but the rim 1.9 looked bad, for the scale look.
 so here is the 1.9 original i made

 

here is the 1.9 sx swamper on my 1.9 rim.
 way to mutch rim not enough sidewall. i have 15 inch beadlocks on my 1:1



then i  ordered a set of 2.2 sx swampers.
 no way!!



 so i reduced them to a 1.9 rim.
 i think im  almost back to my first tires i made. argg. to big to wide and still to much rim.



 so this it what i have now started with.

this is what i starting with:
inspiration from "MADHATTER" on the TLT rims
 4 tamiya TLT rims , 4 mini slash rims and tires and 4, 1.9 super swamper sx tsl tires or any 1.9 set of    tires of choice.
 tools for this will be :
 sharp exacto (hobby) knife
 scissors
 blue ink pen
 1.9 touring rim (for measuring)
 regular and tire ca glue
 side cutters
 dremil and some bits
 some kind of measuring device, i used a  cheap vernier caliper. tape measure will do the trick as well.
 hack saw or another way to cut  the plastic rim.





 first off  cut off the outer 2 rings. 1 cut only .approx 7.5mm


 this will leave you with the outer 2 rings together, this will also be your outer bead to glue your tire into.



 then measure 15mm from the outside of the rim. scribe it or use a felt to draw it. then cut it with the hack saw. the caliper is easy to use. lock it in place and scribe it all the way arround. be sure to roll the rim while cutting  the line, just to be sure it is even all the way arround.
 do not wreck the piece you just cut off. you need it later.




 lightly sand up the edges to true them up. i put a piece of sandpaper on my flat bench and rub the rim pieces on it till there all flat.

 next  i grab the traxxas rim  and cut the tire right down the middle.


 then get your knife and cut the tire off the rim, but be careful, you need all of these pieces.

this is what you should be left with.



 then get out your side cutters and cut out the center of the rim.



 use a dremmel to clean it up.



 next is to cut off the outer 2 rings like  i did the TLT rim. approx 5.5 mm
 do not worry about cleaning out the bead on this ring. it is hidden.



this is what i ended up with.


 these are the
 pieces i used for the next step.


 i grab the traxxas outer tire 1/2 and lay the 1.9 touring tire on top, centre as best as possible.

get out your blue ink pen and trace the touring rim onto the tire.



 grab the knife or scissors to cut it out carefully.


 this is what  i ended up with.

 
 you can see the touring rim placed over the inner ring i cut out is the same size.



 and you can also see the touring 1.9 rim will fit n the outer groove of a 1.9 tire. this will all make sence at the end if it hasnt already done so.




next use the 15mm mid section of the TLT rim that was cut out. sand off the burrs  and use it to trace the inner ring.

 cut this ring out as well.




 the rubber ring should now fit over the red 15mm ring.

to check fit, take the rubber ring

 the outer TLT double ring



 put them together



 and drop them into the 1.9 tire. it should look like this. some minor trimming might be needed.




then gran the traxxas double ring you cut off and place it inside the TLT ring. sand to fit if nec.





 now pull the pieces apart, we are ready to glue.

so now you can use the black tire ca glue and glue in the rubber ring into the groove of the 1.9 tire.
 you need to use the dremil to sand off the  traxxas letters and to smoothen out the edges where you glued it.



 this is what my rim looks like. you do not need the piece in the middle for this project. any more . it was just a tool to trace.


 then use the regular plastic ca glue to glue the outer TLT ring and the rest of the rim together.




 get the traxxas ring and glut it inside the outer TLT ring now.


 let it dry. paint it.
i used flat black.


 and glue your custom tire in its place. this is what i ended up with. and by far i think it looks the best.





 ill post full pics of the truck when i get the last rim finished.

Wow! I started off looking at the Tamiya High Lift Hilux and F-350's and was impressed. Then I saw all he junk people were doing to those; after reading through this everything else just seems like a poser.
