Nikko 1:6 Hummer H1: highly modified
« on: November 09, 2012, 15:34:44 »
I took a Nikko 4wd dual motor Hummer H1 and basically transplanted the chassis extension and body onto the radio shack extreme machine. The wheelbase of the truck is over 6" longer and makes a world of difference climbing. I took a pic of it with the lambo to show the difference.

Mods so far:

4:1 gear reductions
locked front and rear diffs
11.1v 5400mah venom lipo
Traxxas vxl-3s speed control
Traxxas 2075 servo
fully water proofed
Led head lights, tail lights and led light bar (for now)
cut front bumper for clearance (not pictured)
ditched the nerf bars and stickers

Next mods:

4 link rear or convert to independent suspension swap-move body back 1/4" and stretch wheelbase 1.25"
oil shocks
led roof lights turn signals and running lights


















This is what it looked like stock

Thanks! Yeah it was total crap stock and couldnt go anywhere off-road. Now its unstoppable and a blast. Ive since blacked out most of the chrome and added roof lights to it. Ive also got a yellow body on the way and im goin to deck it out and add a soft top to it. Next I will probably reconfigure the suspension for flex with either 4 link or do independent rear for clearance and the hummer look.
