I got a lot more work done to this truck. It turns, drives, shifts, and stops now! Really fun to drive with the 3 speed. I still need to do finishing touches and final electronics mounting but pretty much everything I own is a work in progress so no big deal.

I have been eyeing a gear reduction unit and 55 turn motor, aluminum front bumper, heavy haul front wheels/tires, and several other things for it. For now, I gotta remember to get some easy off oven cleaner to remove the weird pink anodizing from the factory shocks!

Looking great! I so have to get one of these big rigs! It might be a while, but I will get one. :wink:

...Now my next desire is to have a trailer to haul the monster trucks around with...will it ever end? :roll:

I'll tell ya what, these rigs are cool but it would be so much cooler if they were true 1/10 scale so things would look proportional when around the other RC's.

Kind of a bummer to have a "big" rig dwarfed by a short bed chevy pickup. :lol:
