Hell, no. I'm driving it like a little old lady until I get it off the pavement. I don't mind a few scratches but I want to keep the paint on it

Actually with the softer springs it's pretty well behaved on the road, but it's not too hard to get it up on two wheels.

Here's a link to the shootout thread:

BTW, it'll climb a 58 degree slope

That totally looks sweet Stuey. But for crying out loud ditch the huge bumper!

I wanna make a trailer for my TLT Courier now...

Just figured out who you were on Scale 4x4... What is the vehicle 2nd from the left, top row? (the link goes to your avatar on Scale 4x4)

I have a set of red Crawler Balls that will make that a real F-350

Hick style.

I had a few problems so the balls are on back order.

I haven't seen one with Swampers yet, but if Imex would mold some in 1.9, I'd be the first in line to pony up for them.

Here's a link to Shodog's build, using 2.2 Claws.
http://www.scale4x4rc.org/forums/showthread.php?t=6744

Tamiya provides a servo mount up front next to the shift servo, and a nice little bracket behind the bumper that would make a good fairlead, so I'm sure there's a winch in these trucks' future. But I got mine to run up a 58* slope. I'm not sure a winch is necessary.

thats were i got the pic from that i posted above. but i think lift blocks and some other little mods u could get swampers to fit as far as the winch it would just add to the scale look.

Much better without the bumper.

And you know all good slopes are 59 degrees or more, so your Hi Lift ain't gonna make it!

Nope, just the Triton V8 stickers. Guess we know what the MFU is gonna sound like.

If I was gonna MFU it, I'd use one from one of the big rigs to get the diesel sound, but then I'd lose the winch function they keep hinting at. Like that's hard to make

Here's a trailer articulation shot

It's kinda hacktastic, soldered brass tube. I originally built it for a M03 Mini Cooper, then widened it when I built the wide Cooper, now I need to make it longer for the Scorcher, Hornet, etc to fit. Or build a new one

How's that saying go?

It'll work just fine, I just need to replace all the parts with new parts.

This is my grandfather's axe. My dad replaced the handle and I replaced the head, but it's still my grandfather's axe
