Chris’s build info:

Well this was actually pretty simple. I met a great group on island here in Hawaii, “808 Scale Haulerz” and was just in aww of all their incredible builds. So for my first rig, they said to start off with the Tamiya Grand Hauler, and so I did. Believe it or not, this was a very budgeted build. Started with the chassis and used all stock parts right till the end. MFC unit was too expensive so I went with the ESS one sound unit and 1080 Hobbywing ESC. Tamiya light kit. RC4WD 55T motor replaced stock, but still 3 speed trans out of the kit. (she moves) ESS one doesn’t have many semi-truck sounds. But found one diesel V10, that backfires every time it idles down and a ship horn that adds so much character. Now the Body… my Local hobby shop, Sandy Fleming’s here on Oahu turned me to Scale3dRc.com. The second I saw the 39 COE, it was on! Chris at Sandy’s ended up printing it out for me. This took about a week to print, 7 sections, 2-3 were in the 24 hour zone. Even after that, I had quite a few hours of sanding and figuring out body mounts and glass etc. After finding the best way to mount, which are magnets and front hook, moved to interior. Used the stock dash, just extended side to fit snug. Aluminum “Race seats” with material to match. It has a TV, bed and table in the sleep area, all from styrene. Curtains around all the back glass. 55 gal drum for fuel tank. A chain to hold rear license plate. Scale wood deck with aluminum fifth wheel. Integy semi-truck rims with RC4WD lo pros in front, stocks in back. Flysky GT5 controlling, which is an awesome radio if you’re on a budget! Other than that, it is just plain fun.
