A drifting monster truck? Michael Iacono had his Pro-Line F-250 body wrapped with the 2016 livery of pro drifter Justin Pawlak to give it a little extra performance mojo, and he assures us that yes—it can drift with the help of Axial aluminum knuckles for the AR60 axles and CVDs for a little added steering angle. The chassis is a Crawford Performance Engineering Barbarian and Michael drilled his own shock mounts and used steel rod ends on the 4-link suspension for increased durability. Strength also led him to install all heavy-duty gears in the transmission and differentials in the Vanquish axle housings. Pro-Line supplied the PowerStroke shocks and Brawler wheels wrapped in Destroyer tires. Power is courtesy of a HobbyWing XR8 ESC and 5100kv motor.
