Very nice work! :thumbsup:

Even though it finished, I'm sure you plan to run it and do things with it, please keep us updated on how it's doing. :)

Looks great, perfect stance on that beast!

@ andy thanks buddy I ran the truck after I took the photos went well apart from a bit jittery on the power at times I don't think Tamiya teu-106 bk esc can handle twin sport tuned motors. Might swap for a better esc in the future.

@ CowboyClod and clodsrfun thanks guys I appreciate the comments :)

Completely reworked Grim Reaper :P :skull: :skull: :skull: was my first ever attempt at a modified truck and like anything in life is a learning curve! Was not happy with first attempt but am very happy now finally finished.

First thing I did is ditch the pointless blingy gpm steering hubs for stock Tamiya items. Then re designed the steering plus added Kimbrough servo saver so the servo turns the wheels now not just the spring :roll: . And no the top steering link does not foul the servo no clearance issues.

Next on the list was adding triangulation :oops: also this will keep andy happy! Parts used were txt-1 axle tops plus Hesse txt axle mounts and some Traxxas rod ends with hollow ball connectors. Big bonus getting rid of naff Tamiya brass connectors plus the links are now inside the chassis where they should be.

Also the shocks are near vertical now which mounts them in the middle of the wheel arches looks MILES better now I am sure you will agree. Hesse axle mounts are excellent only thing I don't like is the bolt holes being threaded. Could have used thread lock but decided to use lock nuts instead as I know 100% they will not move now.

Oh and added Clod tyres :) and mounted the roll bar.

Many changes I think that is everything. So what do you guys think?

@ Andy thanks buddy funny thing is my plan was to enter this month but had to wait several days to take photographs due to continuous torrential rain :x . Missed the deadline by a few hours.

@ Badclod thanks buddy yep jugg tyres are tricky to find a body that goes well with them deffo put clod tyres on your retro jugg build :thumbsup: .

Maybe I should wait till Badclod enters his retro jugg we can go head to head then :wink: :nana: :lol:

I can give you my spot in the contest if you like.
No votes have been cast for my truck at this time, so it's not like I'd be giving you any votes that were cast for me.

:lol: mine won't be done a while. Boss man is taking a break from painting for a bit. Maybe next fall it will be done. :mrgreen:

I will most likely go with the clod tires.

This awesome. Over the winter here I was trying to figure out what to build and decided to do the same truck, but sick to the old Chevy. All I'm missing now are the decals.

DANG :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :skull: :skull: :skull: very nice indeed you even have the blue chassis.

As for the decals I have seen some decal companies on rcmt maybe they can do some custom ones for you?
