Default 1:4 scale truck

Picked up a '93 Suzuki Carry so I could hop in my 4th scale truck to drive places to play with my 10 scale toys.

Anyone else on here have a mini truck?

What's the wheelbase on that? I could totally use something like that on my ECX Barrage 1/24.

Yes, it's a 25 year old vehicle and legal to import for street use. Newer ones that are imported are typically tagged as an ATV / off-road vehicle use only.

Yes, some municipalities use them for around town work, i.e., groundskeeping, garbage pick up. they're great for retirement communities like Dell Webb


There was one for sale recently on Govdeals.com, I believe it sold for under a $1000

Found some cheap Proline alloy wheels from Pepboys for $130 for the set and put on some cheap Ohtsu tires on for street use.
