I have one designed. Now I just need to know how to build it. I plan on using brake line, and brazing it. I would rather solder it, but anythime I try to solder tube togather it doesn't hold.

Any recomendations?

thanks, those are cut tires and narrowed wheels from the tamiya mammoth dump truck. i got about 10 darn hours time in cutting them...

if you like that look i would suggest using imex dually tires that have been modded to only use one tire. the mammoth tires are great for scale looks and work ok, but they dont compare at all from a performance standpoint to the duallys. besides the duallys are mucho easier to find nowadays.
