Twin Hammers new body and accessories

IMG_5446

I wanted to make my Twin Hammers more unique so I started by replacing the standard plastic body with a set of aluminium body panels.

I decided to paint the panels in a basic desert camo scheme of sand and earth.

Some decals were applied to the side panels to add a bit of detail.

I also replaced the vehicle race number plates on the back of the vehicle with recovery boards. These are also aluminium and were painted desert yellow.

To complete the new look I ordered a pack of rock crawler accessories from eBay and strapped some gear to the roof and recovery boards with bungee chords .

Twin Hammers Rock Crawler / Buggy first drive

A short video of my first drive with the Twin Hammers Rock Crawler / Buggy.

I was not going full throttle as I was only driving with one hand and this was towards the end of the battery.

Its great fun to drive and I was surprised at how often it wheelies from a standstill. It is very easy to tip over at speed and therefore requires much more brake control than most vehicles.
