Default SSMT crawler

I got this litle guy at a toys r us for 30 canadian for a small project to keep me busy. I plan on locking the diff and stretching it as soon as i find a new axle for it. it crawls decent but the diff slips alot and its top heavy, im also adding another cell

Yeah, a few people have them, and have done some pretty major mods to them. They seem to be pretty cool, but my TRU has never seemed to get them in stock

Hey, I just got 2 of those lil SSMT's too! My ToysRUs was blowing them out for $14 each, so I grabed a pair. One for living room play, and one for modding.

I plan on using a 1/24 sclae model kit as a body and making a micro-scale crawler for indoor kicks.

A lot of people here in the US want them really badly, they're now discontinued.
