Default RC4WD trailfinder2 Blazer V8

Finally it arrived !!!

What an illusion to see the box:

And I start to take out, first a pair of jellies for the V8, some pulleys and the ignition, they did not have more sweets in stock ...

Nothing else open, a little screw to the ground, we'll see if it is missing somewhere or it comes from more:

Wet does not come hehe :

The bags with details and paraphernalia vary :

Another bag with wall and battery charger NIMH:

And the transmiter , which comes prepared with the third channel for winch:

I take it out of the box, well protected comes for the compact that is the box and what it includes. First impression, and although I had seen the body live more times, not so the v8 and the r4, but more beautiful live than in the truth photo, used to buy cars, the truth that has surprised me pleasantly:

The wheels, precious the truth, the screws and elacabado with the front locks:

And the backs the different cap:

And what I most expected to see, the V8 with the R4 and the double front shock absorber, quality finishes and detail, impressed me I'm really jejeje, win live:

For the time being it's everything, it's a workshop, first to change the yota1 for some yota2 with ballistic caps and change wheels hehehe, then more things that I'll tell you.

I changed the fuel tank for one of alu in red from RC4WD:



Sin título by alberto espinosa, en Flickr



I have advanced the servo to be able to decorate the motor hole with the RC4WD pulleys and ornaments:



Sin título by alberto espinosa, en Flickr



I have mounted the Yota2 of RC4WD with the ballistic diff covers of RC4WD, more elegant and with the direction behind the axle . I had thought of another system with forwarding but like that is enough. I have also removed the smaller leaf spring in front and back, I have mounted soft springs in rear shock that include them as OEM and in the front suspension I have left one of the shock absorbers on each side without a spring. It is softer and it twists easier, it has won a lot:

I like it!
The RC4WD push bar is a nice addition. I have it on both my Blazer based builds and it really suits the trucks!

True !! They are all pretty, but the forwards take away the angle of attack.

And after assembling everything, without instructions of anything, following the photos of the web of rc4wd, when mounting the body, the wall in front of the dashboard makes butt with the distributor and can not be mounted without cutting the body

Good morning for saying something .....

Yesterday, after two years, and as I am adding in the thread, I continue with the Blazer putting it aimed. Yesterday I had to improve the body anchoring system, but I was surprised and of course for bad as expected with this brand ....

First came the broken body, they sent a second body, but this second has one of the anchors to the body with the biggest hole due to which you can't use that hole.

Conclusions on the rc4wd brand: poor quality of finishes, but very very bad. Half products come from China with the corresponding quality and without revision. In their day with the axes, they came without adjusting and nobody said anything, everyone broke, until after complaints and complaints they took out a set of adjustment washers. People have seen how their tires are worth nothing more than their tires or if they are not problems (something they like seems to be). Then with a Beast2 6x6, there were missing screws, past threads etc. Now with the Blazer, more than 900e of model to bring loose or missing screws, the broken body and then car finishes of € 150, the tranny comes dirty as if it was already used, the body with a larger hole of the account which denotes the capacity of the brand quality section .... are things that you do not expect from one of the first brands in the hobby market, anything injora brings better quality than things of this brand.
Advice if you buy anything of this brand, check it millimeter by millimeter and you will avoid problems, although it is better not to have problems or garbage of products at home to avoid buying rc4wd cars, any other brand makes a thousand laps in quality and functioning.

Well, year after year we are putting hours on the Blazer who is still a virgin ......

Finally, the front suspension is moved, with no spring in any place and I have changed the turrets sideways because if not, the shock absorbers did not work well. I have also disassembled the V8 again because when changing the ignition distributor the spark plug wires had to be changed too and for this we had to disassemble the manifolds. Once everything is in order, a retightening of screws that comes from a loose source, and also grease as God commands that they are very fair in grease, at least for my taste.

Some workshop photos:

Here everything is taken out:

89C90988-6E47-42D8-8417-CBBED0E11293 by alberto espinosa, en Flickr

IMG_1075 by alberto espinosa, en Flickr

Here you see that it is necessary to remove manifolds for the cables:

E8729EBF-D924-45D8-9318-E801DE01D43D by alberto espinosa, en Flickr

Here we can see where the shock absorber should coincide so that it works as it should and where the turrets are as standard:

572EDE5B-1A46-452B-AF8D-09FADE007376 by alberto espinosa, en Flickr

So when you turn around, they look like this and work like a vice:

BDA34D56-559B-4D78-A87B-437EB37E089C by alberto espinosa, en Flickr

A photo of the R4 broken down jjejejejje:

IMG_1132 by alberto espinosa, en Flickr

I have to add that the front suspension did not move at all unless you took the car with one hand and the axle with the other, with the car's own weight it did not move even a millimeter, now it has about 2-3cm of travel, less than the shock absorbers allow, or higher turrets are placed or 25% of the shock absorber travel is lost

Things are still coming, and more that will come, after a fight via mail with the RC4WD after-sales service, in the end they make me an account on their website for future orders in their online store, just as I said The bad, I say the good, excellent after-sales service the truth, at the moment, with more fight or less, every problem has done something to solve it, so I can be happy that almost 2 years later, they have had a commercial attention and it is Very much appreciated.

Some gummies that will be for another but they arrived:

And the rear leaf brackets, to prevent it from snagging:
