Looking good so far. Good work on the 4 link's!

It's interesting to see how each persons truck evolves over time. Some have quick changes, other morph more gradually.

But modding is half the fun!

Enjoy!

That is a shame, it looks awesome so far.

I reckon finish it off any way and stick some boddy panels on it.

Well it was getting too heavy, after putting weights in my front wheels and cage. I just don't thing it would have performed well. If some body could give me some ideas to make the front look better. And I couldn't figure out any way to mount it if it was just gonna be a tuber.

Any ideas?

Get that giant antenna under control too. I read a thread about making a plate to wrap it around out of lexan, I took the same idea and did it with styrene.
