XXT CR Graphite Plus - Build #2

Post by lavigna » Tue Feb 28, 2017 10:24 pm

Hi. This will be my second XXT CR Graphite Plus shelfer build. I also have a thread on my XXT CR Graphite Plus runner build. those threads can be found here:

Shelfer build #1 - viewtopic.php?f=27&t=40153

Runner build - viewtopic.php?f=27&t=41417

I have been collecting parts for this build for a couple of years. Finding the NIB Graphite XL chassis, NIB body, NIB Jammin brace, and NIB Hog Bones were very difficult. It makes it so rewarding when you finally find a rare part, and can put all the pieces together. This picture shows all the parts that will go into this particular build. Everything is brand new. I began assembling a few things, like the transmission, front arms, and shocks before I decided I wanted to collect everything new in the package first. A few small items I put back into their package after opening. I love the look of the vintage Losi and aftermarket parts when they are new in their package. I think it would look cool to somehow make a display of everything needed to complete the truck, in their original packaging. That may be a crazy idea though.

I am very close to having everything needed to complete the truck. Just a few small items remain, and I may try to put the assembled parts back into their packages, for completeness. Enjoy the build (or unbuild).

Wow! Now that's cool. 8)

There's definitely something special about having all those NIP parts for a new build. If it were me though, I'd have difficulty in opening them all up.... :lol:

Me too, lol. That is why I want to come up with a way to display them all together in their original packages. I would like to find an original G+ box someday as well.

Has this been started yet or are you still waiting for parts? :D
(Or have you changed your mind altogether?! :wink: )

I have acquired a few more parts. I already have all the parts needed, but there are some small pieces that I want to get NIP, so that the entire truck is there in new pieces. I dont think I will be building this one for awhile. I really like the idea of having all the parts, including some very hard to find NIP stock and aftermarket parts all in one box. I think I may try to find a XXT G Plus box for the final piece.
