Post by shodog » Fri Sep 07, 2007 8:11 pm

have been into RC cars since I was a kid in the the 80's. I did a little bit of racing and a lot of bashing. Sadly the only thing I have left from that time is a partial Tamiya hilux chassis which I turned into Juggerlux. I have been lucky enough to be able to collect what I had and what I wished for back then and then some.

I'll start with my small collection of RC10s. I have done my best to make each one of them really nice. I seek out rare and cool parts to make each one.

This buggy is a stock new build. The only modification I have done is to add the Tecnacraft aluminum wheels. The body was painted by Doug of Squarehead Designs
