Jaime’s Build notes:

I liked the Ascenders scale features over the AXIAL products and I love the stylings of Ford trucks. So naturally I went with an old Ford design. I’m a huge fan of Tarantino films, so it had to be Death Proof.  The current body is the 4th I have painted to this day for this very truck.  I prefer to design my trucks along the lines of Top truck lineage.  They are types of trucks that are slightly out of their elements.   I love heavy and realistic handling trucks.  Death Proof weighs in around 15lbs and does not side hill very well, Ha.   The truck is a combination of aftermarket products that I like and a lot of my custom work.  And the riveted windows are push pins J it has full functioning lights on 3 separate channels.  Running a front winch and suck down winch. Custom Hey ok Lighting Controller includes KOH lights.  Truck uses two Lipos to run the truck and accessories.
