Made a 8x8 2 years ago using the Proline recon bodies. Build a beef drivetrain don't under estimate the weight and drag its two trucks in one. The Axial trans on mine doesn't seem to hold up all that well. A friend built a replica truck but with a e maxx trans and it seems better. Its very capable and makes short work of ledges and stairs with its infinite break over angle. Fun truck in the snow.

Wendy 1 and wild Wendy 2 were both limited editions and are now discontinued, I am currently working in a Wendy 3 for early 2015


here is what he sent for info.





I also have big Bill, this figure was sculpted to fit the social wraith bucket seat, he has articulated arms as well as a open cavity in his back to allow for a micro servo to make the head rotate..

He comes with your choice if different heads, fohawk, helmet, baseball and now Drive Angry baseball .

Bill is $250 custom painted , I can add things like logos and facial hair to customize each driver.

The bill head are also a direct fit to the ram it's wild willy body.

I offer just the heads,
Unpainted $25 each
Painted $55 each
S/h is $12 for up to 3 heads, each additional head is $3

Again I can customize the heads with facial hair and logos


I hand sculpt the original prototype in wax, then mold and cast the figures in resin, clean , primer and hand paint the pieces .

I've added some photos, let me know if you have any questions

All the best
Matt Hicks

im gonna do right this time and ship them back and exchange it. i have a new 12t pinion that was the same size as the old, but i was gonna go up a tooth.

i always assumed the slash 4x4 steel spur i have on timmy was 56t, but its 54t. kinda thinking get a lower kv roc motor so i can run a bigger pinion and keep the same wheelspeed.

I just picked up another MRC... maybe i should build a 6x6 using little axles... it'd be a hell of a lot cheaper!
I think this one is going under my Willie's
