Someone Has To Build This!

The first time I saw Dennis Anderson’s new King Sling monster truck, I immediately thought that an RC version has to be built. If you never saw this wild truck, check out the video above. This is by far the sickest mud truck ever built. How sick would it be to see a 1/10 scale [...]
