XT6 Project

Postby Huck369 on Tue Jul 31, 2018 9:16 am

I'm "Finally" Hoping to start on my current XT6 Project, nothing really to tell yet, but hope to get it up and going before the next Dragon Meet.
I will try to post up progress reports here.......

Whoa... Not a restoration then. I wouldn't know how to begin with such an undertaking. Looking forward to pics. Keep us informed.

I had actually planned to leave the 2.7 in this one, but the motor in this seems to be on it's last leg, and I ran across this 3.0 wreck for cheap....soo...... :mrgreen:

Well, I picked up the 11k JDM ER27 from John in KY, this past Saturday, so will be keeping a ER27 in it after all :D
Will have to do a little bit of swapping, as it has been set-up to use in an ultra-lite Helicopter (intake turned around backwards, and pretty stripped down)
but should get my XT6 mobile at least, then I can try to get the body done up to make it look nice....
Still hoping to get it ready for the 2019 Dragon Meet, as I haven't brought an XT to the Dragon since I sold FrankenWedge

You're welcome John, and you've been a Subaru Enthusiast long enough, I'd have given you more if I had it. 8)
