This actually the first Team Associated vehicle that I ever bought. No restoration here, just a clean and well maintained Team Truck.

It's pretty much a unmodified white arm truck. The only exceptions to stock are the Andy's bumper, RPM gear cover, and Losi rear tires.

The body is a JConcepts reproduction with MCI decals. It also has extended body mounts. The paint is Spaz Stix gold to red, color change. It looks cool as it moves through different light, and you can see it a little in the pic.

Electronics consist of a Novak Polaris receiver and Rooster esc, Futaba S9304 servo, and Reedy ES Esprit modified.

Pulled me a good old fashion switcheroo and voted early for a change, within a couple hours of polls being open. Instead of the usual last few days or hours (and no, not to peek). But anyhow, speaking of old fashion, it is nearing 5 o'clock :lol:
