looks great! I love that you also cut the bed short.
for a second I thought this was my build thread, lol.
I thought about a cab for the bed of mine too but decided against it. I think the dual cab reads better without it.

here's mine.

Thanks for the reply
good idea to do it whitout the top
some more steps
I made a new speaker box under the rear bed.

a box for the MFC-02 unitto take away from the most dirt

and reversed the transmission unit to give it space

try of the cab would fit,whit evrything under it

did today the first test run(only front driven becouse i need a longer rear shaft.
i use a stock silver can from tamiya, and it is a bit to fast for my idea. the 2 speed came whit a 10 tooth motor pinion.
is this the standard one ? i ordered a 8 one for trying to gear it down.
i dont know if the mfc-02 unit will accept other than 27 turn,motors
if the 8 motor pinion not works i can try a gear reduction unit mabey

thanks. yours is looking very good too. ideas on color? also if you're interested in the stripes PM ElChupoCabra on here as he did the paint masks cut out of vinyl, so he could cut you some too for cheap.

try a 55t with the 2-speed and 10t pinion. should be fine.

I used a RLP Truck puller(dont know the turns off that motor? )
but after some longer testing i think it is way to slow

now is use the stock 540 motor and the 7 toth pinion thad i ordered.
did some modd's on the 2 speed tranny for that

also got my rear shaft today, so dit the first outdoor test whit the chassie.

its verry nice to drive, but i think i need te hilift springs in the shocks te spring that are in now are verry hard.

also made a reiciever plate and cover it whit a balloon i think i need a black one.




and also got my kamtec window glasses now wait for the repro interior ,so i can start whit the insite of the truck.
I think it will be yellow,
