Possibly, but I'm not certain. It's going back to the Szczerba Built Shop for more work along with a few other rigs.

Lots of updates in these pictures. The plastic trail ready bead locks have all been changed out to RC4WD scale aluminum bead locks. Name:  ImageUploadedByTapatalk1440898409.431754.jpg

Truck is really getting the detail love. You are taking it way beyond what I had the patience for after working on the base setup for almost a year. Dunno where to start but all the details are really adding up to be a great truck.

Thank you Shane. It's a special build that has been fun to be a part of and there is more still to come.

This video is a compilation of video footage from many different locations using RC cars Crawler Innovations has built and used to test and develop CI products. This video features the 8x8, the FTOY, 1:6 Willys Jeep, the Forced Wraith, Big Blue, Top Shelf, and the Fun Truck. All vehicles have build threads on the rccrawler forum. All vehicles have Crawler Innovations foams in one flavor or another.

Good luck! Awesome build and work by all involved! It's always amazed me what the rc crawler community and unspoken amounts of coin can do! Where is Mikes hobbies moving to?

Thanks

Harley 3D printed the side louvers many months ago. Harbor Graphics printed the under grille sticker.



The weather has been fantastic lately in East Texas. Gavin and I took some toys outside to enjoy it.
