I never updated this thread, lol. I posted pictures of this truck with a different body in a different thread.

Anyways, I bought a 10T Team truck body for it and now it's pretty much done. I always have intentions to run these but they always turn out too nice :roll:

I was going to have a go at you for not running..... but then realised that would be totally hypocritical of me!!!

Truck looks the danglies, mate, well done!

Thanks, it's a huge improvement over the "before" Eventually I will run something one day, but my RC days may be numbered for the time being :lol:

I'll send you a Mini or a Hornet, if it will keep you in the game :P

Awesome thread. Thanks for keeping it updated over the years. Get some paint on that body and charge up those lipos.

Nice Job! This helps motivate me to complete my project. Can't wait to see it painted.

Did you go with vintage electronics for any particular reason? All my old radios and servos were fried when I tried to run them.

Your 10T looks wickedly cool with the clear body because you can see everything under it. I'd love to build one like that as a shelf queen, and leave the body clear. There's just something about it. Thanks for sharing.

I missed this post, sorry. Thanks, I wasn't planning on building a "period" race truck but once I got it and saw the race mods I just had to keep it period correct. Luckily I had most of the electronics so it was just a matter of cleaning them up and installing them.

Thanks, I've always liked clear bodies personally although many here don't. I agree its very cool to see all the colorful stuff inside. This one is definitely of my favorites.
