My Wild Dagger

Although not considered a traditional monster truck, they still have monster coolness.

Great thread and development.

I had the Twin Detonator which is basically the same chassis - i did a few minor mods on mine...

but sold it on, the next guy added twin Tamiya BZ motors, Lipos, ally shock towers and is now having a blast with it.

The Hawaiian Punch one on page one belongs to Bromvw on Tamiyaclub forum - he had a build thread on there a while back....

Seben Racing also do a clone, good option for cheap stock size wheels n tyres; their RTR version isn;t a bad price either..

Thanks! Nice rig! Yeh, I read that build thread on tamiya club and linked it in my original post. There are other clones other than Seben too, links on the first page too, including a direct clone out of Chine. Great little trucks, I really like them.....

Really nice with the clod-sized wheels on it, sixtys guy! the yellow rims match well with the livery

BTW, i got those OFNA dogbones you suggested off of tower, gonna install them soon

You know, I have not seen you try Wheelie King tires yet! I was looking at your tire comparison picture and thought those would look great on there too!

Now those look awesome! i like how the sidewall bulges out, gives it a nicer look than stock

How hard was it to modify those rims? i might have a go at them for my BFX..

Thanks! I was really lucky that I found some 40mm PVC waste water couplings from the local hardware shop that fitted inside the wheels perfectly. I have some pics on my laptop that I can post tomorrow.

I know its been a while since you have updated this, but I picked up a Tamiya Double Blaze from a friend, never run and will be making some mods similar to what have done here. I might be asking some question in the near future! :wink:
