ayk pro radiant race prep truck conversion

Post by hugger19 »

this is one of the coolest item i have bought in a good while. i couldnt found out where or who raced this truck but it was raced at one point in its life. spoke with steven dunn and he doesnt know the truck and looked up the info on the first roar offroad monster truck nats in vages in 1990 and no luck, o well still a super cool peice of history. here are the pics of the truck the last owner found it. he replaced some parts were broken (jeff had a hand in remaking those parts very nice) and changed some around to bring it back to its orginal pro radiant look. lucky for me he kept all the parts, so going to bring it back to the way it was when it was last raced. that g-10 fiberglass chassis was a optional radiant part. steven dunn said he only sold a few hundred of these conversion kits. will post up more pics once i get the truck.

These are cool. I used to have one too but I converted it back to the buggy long time ago. I think I still have a couple of new front wheels for these trucks.

Look like JG might've made the wheels for the kit. Dunn's truck is using JG Yokomo conversion wheels in the rear.

so this is what it looks like now. very nice, but i liked the way it looked before the resto/when it was raced. so going to put back as seen in pics. all parts are orginal EXCEPT FOR the side plates and the rear shock tower since they were damaged. jeff did a really great job on those parts 8) . as far as the motor i have something really special i will be installing :) for a more period correct look.

Looks cool...what's the deal with the single, lonely aluminum C-carrier on the front?
