Thanks, it's a really fun truck to drive. It's very realistic...a little top heavy, but fun. It was my favorite until I finished my 2.2 EB.

It's closer to 1/12th scale, hence the 1.9 tires. I believe it's a New Bright brand, and it's hard plastic.

I have a couple extras....

Yeah, I think they discontinued them last year.
If you look on the orange one, it has a switch too. It's for the lights, and is hidden by the roof rack.

I've made a few updates to this rig. We are having a 1.9 TTC next month and I decided to give it a little tougher look.









Once the TTC is over, I'll be running these new tires on these new 1.9 wheels. Yes the 1.5 tires fit on 1.9 wheels, you just have to stretch them out a bit. The wheels have more backspacing....I've been wanting to tuck them in a little more and make the rig have a more realistic stance. Hopefully these new tires perform well, I really like the size of them. The truck will get new paint for 2010 as well.





I've been really happy with this rig over the last year. It performs better than you would expect. I won the ORCRC 2009 1.9 Scale series #1 by 172 points, and series #2 by 126 points .
I've been wanting to build a new 1.9, but I'm kind of afraid to, since this one works so well.
Thanks for looking, I'll show update pics as it comes together with the new paint.

New paint and tires look sick.
Have you had a chance to try the new tires? If so what do you think of them?
