FAN FRIDAY FEATURED BUILD BY GILBERT MONTOYA
Gibert’s build info;
Hi, I’m Gil Montoya and I am from Las Vegas, NV. This is my build for our Class 2 Las Vegas scale challenge. I got my first crawler little over a year ago and instantly got hooked! I watched YouTube videos for months before pulling the trigger. My first crawler was an Axial SCX 10.2 Trail Honcho RTR. First time I flexed on the couch cushions and crawled through my living room; I instantly knew this was going to be a huge hobby of mine. Little did I know I would buy 3 more crawlers and take up every Sunday for over 8 months. I went to almost every comp we had here and was blessed with a great community to share great upgrades ideas and help finding where to get them as well. Eventually I watched many competitions and saw numerous great builds, upgrades. I decided that The Crawl Space Game Changer 4.2 stage 3 kit with Hobywing Axe 2300kv system Ar44 axles Vanquish Method 1.9 wheels, Rock Beast tires and Rugged radio DX5 was the way to go. So as far as the build goes, the idea came to me when I first got into crawling and wanted the right set up to put it on. After seeing the proven GC4.2, I knew right there and then it was a perfect opportunity. Thanks to Rc Bombshells creativity and seeing exactly what I had envisioned, and his creativity we created this gem! My dad had an old STIHL chainsaw in the garage when I was growing as well as a hat that had old sweat and tears from building our house as well as houses for family friends in Utah. Every time I take this truck on the rocks, I will remember how hard my father worked for his family and friends. I am grateful that for my build that I teamed up with Rocco Epler at Rc Bombshells.
