Chris’s builds info;
The body is a Tamiya Clod Buster with the original bowtie grill and Chevrolet tailgate. The rear lights are from Shapeways. The interior is a RC4WD Blazer dash, and a Tamiya bench seat that I covered in leather. The driver is also from Tamiya. The chassis is a very custom G-made Sawback. It’s running a gear reduction unit for a transmission, to a GCM transfer case. The front axles had stock internals removed and replaced with cut-down shafts from an Ascender, and rear axle has custom torque-arms to stop the axle from twisting and ruining leaf springs. The rear bumper is from RC4WD, front bumper is home made. Wheels are 1.55 Gear Head and the tires are from Pit Bull. Hubs are also RC4WD. Electronics are simple and reliable. Holmes Hobby brushed 35T motor, Hobbywing 1060 ESC, and a cheap steering servo.
