1bads vintage collection & restoration

Post by Justinswraps » Wed Feb 11, 2015 3:12 am

I got out of clods to take a jump back into the past. Always wanted to build my vintage collection up from trucks that got me into the hobby. I was fortunate enough to find most of them. I have a few more that I would like to find and restore, I have a feeling I'll be searching a while on the last one. :(

At any rate here is my traxxas ls2 that I've completely restored. Installed brushless stampede gears in the transmission so you can run brushless power with no issues!

I ordered a body from TBG for this one. I'll be sending it off to shane for paint when it comes in


Next is a traxxas sledgehammer.

I have a TBG lid coming for this one also. Original decals are hard to find for this. Hoping shane can just do it all in paint. I still need to rebuild two of the rear shocks. They were leaking a bit.

This one is a traxxas eagle. I got this truck as a bunch of parts. Fortunately for me all I had to do was put it together and polish the chassis. Also was able to find original body and decals. Only other thing I had to find was a front bumper and wheels and tires. Tires should be here soon.

Kinda lost track of taking photos lol

Lastly so far my favorite! Traxxas blue eagle ls. I absolutely love these trucks, I was able to get all brand new parts, decided to throw a twist in and dye all the white parts black!!!

Yet again jumped the gun on photos and building hahaha

I also have another TBG body coming for this truck as well. It's getting a sweet paint job by shane!


Here's the full collection so far

I have a Traxxas Bullet and a Traxxas hawk coming in the next week or so to restore with these guys. Also picked up a hpi rs4 mt 4wd electric truck I bought off eBay I'll be working on with the others.

I'm like the anti traxxas. But I would snatch up a blue eagle on a heart beat if one ever turned up locally.

Cool collection sir :thumbsup:

Someone started to go vintage on me! Nice group of old Traxxas RC's! These are the good ones from Traxxas! I think even Halgar can appreciate these. :mrgreen: What is the last one you are looking for?

Thanks guys. It's fun when a 24 year old truck can still out handle a new production truck :mrgreen:

Jeff the last truck I want from the Traxxas line is the SRT it's exteremely elusive. Mainly because a lot of guys are still using them in racing, no one will give one up lol
