What truck is it? I hate rock crawlers but like the looks of scalers. You're trucks have been making me lean towards a scaler for a build up. They look cool and are plenty fast enough to have fun. :lol:

I love the way the bed and cab flex towards each other upon landings. It's very realistic. Great job

Awesome video and the editing was perfect! :D

Is that chassis the one you put independent suspension on it in the front? It looks like it handles the terrain pretty good! It's just a little squirrelly on the jumps. LOL

I like that body. looks like it well stand up to your beatings. :lol: :lol:
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming to the Lord,
"Wow, What a ride!"

Its an Axial SCX10. Im not into crawlers either, I like a truck that looks like a truck, and one with a little wheel speed too.

That is awesome, I wanted one of those bodies for my clod build but couldn't find one so I had to settle for the next size smaller. Love the ifs on this build, looks great!

Thanks, that was a fun day at the beach. I have since sold all my RC stuff to take a break from it for awhile, but i'll be back at some point.
