With this years event being more aimed at true scale trucks, I decided to build something the average guy would be able to build. This will also end up being my "daily driver" for all our other outings. Kinda a kill two birds deal. I started out this morning with a borrowed body till mine shows up so don't mind the temporary shell. The new body will be a stock tan'ish color. Here is the parts rundown so far; Tamiya fj body Madhatter fab chassis Tamiya 3spd trans with spur gear mod for 176+to1 low gear MIP drive shafts Axial axles with 38/14 gearing and aluminum C's etc. . . GCM leaf spring mounts front and rear Custom Madhatter fab shocks Tires and wheels are still undecided, but most likely will be RC4WD of some sort. Here's a few picks of the progress from today.
