BUILD INFO FROM RAUL:

– Chassis is made from the wear pad from a flatbed tow truck since I work for a custom truck shop  in New Jersey. I had extra pieces and I cut them down to the desired shape to create a drop cap chassis

– Installed a rear air bag simulator from Exclusive Rc

–  On the front I used a single set of leaf springs to create an old style suspension

– Installed headlights on the knuckle so they will turn with the wheels

-The turn signals are installed where the original side view mirrors were

– The fuel tank is made out of two pieces of 3/4 inch copper pipe

– The fuel nozzle is from a railroad model train

– The stacks are 1/2 inch copper

– The visor is hand made out of brass

– The shifter is attached to mini servo that is synched to the trucks movement (forward & reverse)

– The rear fenders are the same as the front fenders only flipped backwards

-The servo comes out of the firewall like a true Rat Rod

– I made my own white walls

– It is powered by a RC 4 wheel drive planetary transmission into a king hauler rear diff

– The tail lights are marker lights from a tow truck
