FAN FRIDAY FEATURED BUILD BY ERIC SWEAT
At long long last, Friday you have shown your lovely face. With the Fourth of July “America’s birthday” coming up, Eric is here to add some flare with his own creations.
Started out as a Vaterra Ascender, and I shortened the wheel base to fit the body I found that matches my 1500 body is off an old radio shack RC truck and wheels are custom made by @Liftedcustomrc and the tires are by MST. Sectioned and lengthened the bed to get the length just right. The goal was to have a realistic mini version of my 1 to 1 truck.
It’s a Red Cat gen7 sport chassis with new inner fenders and aluminum shocks. Swapped out the body mounts for Pro-Lines screw down ones. Wheels are off of a Helion Conquest RC truck and are mounted to 1.9 Super Swamper Iroc tires and set the wheel base to 13 inches with overall length at 20 inches. To really nail the details I made a custom made grill and this truck gets used! This is no shelf queen.
