The body on this wild-looking monster truck hearse is HPI’s Grave Robber shell, so it isn’t technically branded as a Cadillac, but the ’59 Caddy hearse influence is pretty obvious and it looks great painted and perched atop Robert Snyder’s Red Cat Ground Pounder chassis Clod Buster. He made his own custom center links out of graphite and brass, and uses aluminum spindles and knuckles from Crawford. Shocks at all four corners are rear units from a Team Associated RC10, and the steering linkages are from Axial. Dual Leopard 2500kv motors, Hobbywing speed controls, and a pair of 2S LiPos (sitting in a custom battery tray) provide the power. Robert has a second body for it — a Ford F-250 Super Duty — that is painted up to look exactly like his daily driver!
