Well IM glad its at least a "True" truggy and you chopped the frame :thumbsup:

You'll like the long wheel base. It works really well. The Honcho is right around 13.5" and it hooks up great.

Crusher1
04-14-2010, 11:34 AM
haha, thanks i just figured it would look better as a true truggy

and the honcho is that long? i had no clue, maybe the long WB isnt so bad

got some more done, i think this is about as far as im going to get today due to lack of tubing, ill pick some up tomarrow morning to finish it off, lemme know what you think so far

(oh and i changed the tube design up a little, it looks much better IMO)

got another update, welded the tub portion of the truck to the chassis and added the upper bars, gonna pick up some styrene this weekend to finish the rear end, also have to add some support bars to the bottom of the tub section that connect to the chassis to keep it from bending, lemme know what yall think

(i know the welds are crappy, but they'll work, plus i dont think they're that bad for my first actual welds)

Pretty cool man I like that back half. If I could stop spending money left and right and buy me a brazing kit I want to start making stuff like that.
