FAN FRIDAY FEATURED BUILD BY ZEEK HEARD
Zeek’s build info;
I have been involved in RC pulling since 1991 and am the founder of the Orange County Wolfpack and Orange County RC Pulling. The next time you’re on YouTube go to Zeek Heard Pulling to check out some of our nitro RC pulling videos. “After building our Superman puller a buddy of mine showed me pictures of a triple engine unlimited puller that he was building, and this motivated me to create a quad engine unlimited nitro puller. Along the way there is always obstacles so, I prayed about it and jumped in and every time I got stuck the Lord gave me inspiration and showed me how to figure it out so I give all the glory to the God.” This build appropriately named Thanos was created to be a world-class unlimited nitro puller and to compete against our three-time world champion unlimited nitro puller Superman, AKA Soup. It took me about two years to design and build Thanos. Weighing in at about 40lbs, with four modified LRP.32 Spec 4 nitro engines, a 3/16″ TVP laser cut chassis, four fuel cells, led light system, two heavy duty Wolfpack transmissions, custom steel drivetrain and hard compound pulling tires that were hand cut by Joe Kilian founder of the NRCTPA. The body was custom painted by Thomas Boughton of Pitdawg Hydro. Thanos won the King of Bling award in the show and shine competition at the 2019 No Limit RC World Finals. As they saying goes you never know until you try, having said that I am currently redesigning the whole back end with beefier parts as the extreme power generated by the four nitro engines during a pull has destroyed every rear end combination, we’ve thrown at it.
