Vaterra Ascender by Jason Cook
Jason assembled this super clean ’86 K5 Blazer from the Vaterra Ascender kit using a Tekin power system — an FXR speed control running a 35T motor. Jason painted the body with Tamiya Gun Metal up top with Duratrax Metallic Black below. The tires are stock from the kit but he mounted them on Gearhead 12-pack EZ-Loc beadlock wheels. He upgraded all the hardware to KNK stainless steel and waterproofed the axles, transmission, servo and electronics with Plastidip and marine grease. Since the photo he has added GMade 104mm shocks and a 4-link system. Next on his list of upgrades is a lighting system and a scale interior.
