Welcome aboard. Looks great. I was watching the video and thought "That thing handles like crap!". Then I remembered you are running leaf springs. Well done. Nice, scale build, thanks for letting us see her belly at the end. Another "no trailer queens" member!!!.

Awesome job , Idk if you've seen mine but mine is a RC4WD Trailfinder 2 with a Tamiya Ford F-350 body . What chassis and body did you use ? Mine also uses leaf springs and I really like it . Still debating on my next project , either I'm gonna do a Mega Truck mud truck or maybe a Tamiya Fast Attack buggy and give it an old school desert racer look . Again AWESOME JOB ;)

Thanks for the welcome. Yes, leaf springs all round. I'd love to have the engineering skills to make some independent front wishbones but on the other hand I quite like the stock nature of the bounce hehe.

Thank you so much, I also used a TF2. The cab is cut from the RC4WD Blazer body and the bed is a custom build. I'm torn on what to do next, I have a Sand Scorcher that I'd like to pimp a little and try to make more realistic. I also used to race a Kyosho Tomahawk back in the day and would quite like one of those. I like the sound of your FAB project though.

I like your F-350 build, your scale accessories are very well done.

If I do the Mega Truck I'm thinking of using the Axial Max-D monster truck . I saw a YouTube vid where a guy did one with the Grave Digger . He went ahead a used the taller thinner Tractor tires for his but I wanna use either Ground Hawgs or maybe the RC4WD Intimidator sand paddles . For the body I thinking the J Concepts Raptor .
Kinda nit picky but you should change the number on the side . The " 506 " ( which I know you stole from your Sand Scorcher ) is used for Baja bugs . Your truck is an old school class 8 like this

On another note where did you get your window net or did you make it ? If so do ya have any extra ?

Hi, yes needs must hehe, would be nice to get some custom vinyls made up with the correct number on. I got the window net from Ebay, Tamiya - Lowlski 1/10 Window Netting to fit SAND SCORCHER - MONSTER BEETLE | eBay.
