Nissan Terrano Raid?

Recommended Posts

I have several of these setup as Monster trucks for the Grandkids

I changed the motor for 26,000 ( but really needs about 30,000)

Added a very long drop arm pivoted off the rear axle. Great fun running over jumps and other things.

Check out slot monster trucks on You Tube..

I have a few of those Tamiya kits. So far I have just converted one to a Raid Slot. I did the Toyota Surf/Forerunner in the familiar blue and silver which you saw a lot in the SSRX and SSRG spec. - at least in NZ. I owned that exact model to tow my boat, which ran the higher spec. blower with same power as a Prado, (except they had a bonnet intake scoop) so I couldn't resist making that one up.

- I also have the black pickup truck mostly ready as a regular type slot, done as matt black.


I put standard Ninco RAID pro-race mechanics under it, except the wheels/tyres, which are MITOOS, and a Slot.it crown, I can't recall if I had EVO-32 (2.38mm) bushings and axles, or if I bored out the Slot.it crown to 2.5mm to fit the older Ninco 2.48mm standard.

No grip at all on my wood track, but it works pretty well on Ninco plastic.

I mounted the body using L-panels from a Slot.it SCX mounting kit from memory - and yeah, I notice I've dropped a body screw somewhere. The chassis with the correct wheelbase was the earlier version of a Mitsi Pajero.

But I could have made up normal vertical body posts which would have fitted this model kit.
