    since i have alot of offroads i wanted an on road monster truck that was different from others so the tear down began

    and i had these brand new aluminum rims with street tires for my aftershock sitting in a bin so decided to just use them for this project

    i stripped the anodizing off the chassis and painted it black with red web, figured since its onroad it wont be getting to banged up with rocks and such so why not, this pic was before i did any touch ups

    now i got the front end all painted and back on, sits nice and low now
    [​IMG][/URL][/IMG]
    and heres a few of it together, still need to get a body, servos, and slipper clutch to make it run but that will come soon, you can see i also did the red web on the transmission case and battery case nad painted the "maxx" lettering red on the receiver box

    Great job,Love to see trucks done this way,I think it has more character then just fancy aluminum candy.

    Its easy just to buy candy an put it on the truck,anyone can do that.,But when its done this way,it gives it more personality.
