FAN FRIDAY FEATURED BUILD BY EDDIE REYES WITH WICKED RC TOYZ
Let us all tip our sunglasses and put down the sun tan lotion to truly appreciate this sweet ’55’ Eddie has brought to tantalize our need for muscle cars in our summer diets…..
We here at RC HUB must also pay homage to his livery scheme….. we are quite smitten.
1955 Chevy “Frankenstein”
Here are some comments from Eddie:
Here is a “under construction” custom built RC Car named “Frankenstein” that I am making out of five Traxxas cars. The original foundation started out with a Rustler VXL, which begins the transformation. I am using a Traxxas 2wd slash LCG chassis. Next came the rear axles off a Traxxas Bandit, which consist of arms, drive axles, and tire rod ends, so I can tuck the Traxxas Funny car drag slicks underneath the body without any complications. The front shocks & springs will be modified from a Traxxas E Revo that allows me to get the stance that I want with adjustability. The motor that I plan to put in as my first test motor will be a Novak 3.5 with a Novak ESC. I am planning on putting a spool in the Traxxas Rustler transmission to give me the best launch off the line. By using 5 different cars and their parts gave it the name “Frankenstein”.
