    Knocking the dust off ,clean up an installing a new engine!
    This truck I built scratch for my wife about 10 years ago ,it sat in the shed for at least 6 yr.
    It had a 5.9 on it ,but as it sat ,I kind of robbed parts off of it!

    I'm putting a new Hpi. 25 on it ,little smaller ,but at least it will run for her!...:cool:

    She seen me getting mine ready ,an she asked me if hers is running ,I studdered a little an told her
    that it just needs to be cleaned up!...:eek:

    Is that an original Tmax? The chassis is so old school, I love it! Nice for your to be doing that for your wife!
