Lots of great looking entries. Even the buggies that im not a fan of were awesome.

THEYTOOKMYTHUMB's 10LSO is just too gorgeous and stirs a lot of pan car memories for me.

I think a lot more RCs should have this shaky head Wild Willy in them! The intense look on the face is awesome and would be hilarious sitting next to Shaggy in Dadio's Holiday buggy. 🀣

That is one of the nicest 'swiss cheese' saves I have seen.

Willy was a contender for the Sand Rover driving seat :D
If a jobs not worth doing then its certainly not worth doing well.
A problem shared is a problem halved but an advantage shared is no advantage at all.

Thanks! It was an idea I had that helped motivate me to put the truck back together and give it new life.

You need an aggressive and skilled pilot when crawling. Wild Willy has the training...he's able to bob his head out of harms way at a moments notice...even when upside down...lol



This is a little old video when the Wreckluse was sporting 2.2 wheels

Cant believe ive had this crawler over ten years.

The Corvette with the hot paint job was challenging within a couple of votes for a while, but the 4 wheeler seems to be pulling away again. It must be the mysterious motor under that elaborate shell.

Congrats on the win! Very cool 4 wheeler! This makes chain drive winners 2 months in a row! Next month needs someone with a 2wd chain drive gbx to step up and enter, just because. 😁
