Steam powered R/C..?!? some neat builds I found

I saw this in facebook the other day...... amazing work this guy did. :thumbsup:





Then after finding it on youtube... I spotted this one. Looks like it's based on a Tamiya Juggernaut.

Are you sure it's the Jugg and not the Mammoth (quarry dump truck)? I like this one better than the tryke
I used to think I was indecisive, but now I'm not so sure.

I have no idea. I wondered when I saw the tires, but the 4-link had me thinking juggernaut. They are probably related (?).

The truck does look cooler I guess, but that way you can see stuff better on the trike is cool, and it has a Mad Max look to it that I really like.

This is so absolutely ridiculous that it is awesome! On a similar vein, CrabFu has built some steam mutants similar to this in the past.
One of them was a steam powered 6x6 based on the TLT-1...
