That is going to be sick when it's completed.


You better be headed to MSD next year with that.

Welding is one thing I don't have down yet. All the styrene work is glued and mounted to the chassis to some nuts that have been already welded to the chassis. I am just learning to work with styrene but its fun to see what you can come up with.

Yeah that does look good. No matter what happens, builds that begin with a 'Mog always look good.

Who built the cage for you?

Cage was done by the same guy that did my Honcho. He is a member of RCC, "Spyderwebbcustoms". Pretty good guy to work with.

I took a couple of outside pictures at the Texas Finals. I finish wiring it all up today and drove it around the yard to test it out. I need stiffer springs but everything is working like it should. Still got to work on detailing a little but its ready for action.

I got around doing a little work on this thing today. I installed a set of lights I won in a Giveaway from KC_JoNeS (thanks bud!). and finished wiring everything. Not the cleanest job but it fits well with room to spare for the battery.

The truck did pretty good on the Rock the Lake Comp but I noticed some areas where it could improve. I worked a little on this thing today. I installed VP knuckles, re-did some links and re-enforced the styrene. The VP knuckles gave it some crazy steering, exactly what I was looking for but the offset on the wheels didn't work with the ZeroAkerman knuckles. I had a set of CAC wheels laying around and swaped them for the hummer wheels. Different look but I like the change.
