    Hi everyone, I'm not new to the forums, I have been doing some scale building and was participating more on the SBG. I have had a few different R/Cs, my first was an HPI Crawler King which got me into the hobby. Watching Medics first "Overkill" series made me want a kit, so I bought an Axial Wraith kit. I loved the scalers. I sold my Crawler King for a Traxxas 2wd Slash which was awesome! I traded it to my brother for his Axial Scx-10 Honcho. This is when I was introduced to really scale R/Cs on SBG. I ended up receiving a RC4WD Hilux body set for Christmas which started my Toyota Pickup Truck build. I learned some tips from the pros, and was able to complete a "bed bob", servo powered steering wheel, and a hinged hood mod. The Toyota Pickup truck began life as a RTR Honcho and ended up leaf sprung with Yota Axles, custom CMS, front mounted motor with a GCM transfer case, and many different mods. Here's some final pictures:

    This truck is currently sitting on a bookshelf where it won't get damaged by the trails!

    As of now, I am selling my Axial Wraith so that I can get funds to purchase a Traxxas Slash Ultimate 4x4 so that I can bash with my cousin who has a 2wd Brushless Slash. He custom makes his own batteries so he runs a 17200 3s lipo in his rig which lasts over 1.5hrs!

    I also run a blog, scalerctrucks.blogspot.com, where you can follow my builds, visit my Youtube channel and download free e-books that I wrote!
    Well I will see you guys around the forums,:haveaniceday:

    Thanks guys!
    I just sold my Wraith! When the Slash Ultimate 4x4 Dodge w/out battery is back in stock I will order one with a 3s 5000mah 50c lipo! I also purchased an Apple adapter so that my iPod touch 5 will hopefully work with the telemetry features! I know, thirty- five bucks for a silly little adapter!
