Danger Ranger Drag Truck

Danger Ranger Drag Truck

The Artin Toys body that Adam’s Danger Ranger is based on is getting pretty hard to find in nice condition, and when he finally scored a good one he originally planned on making it into an off-road truck. But he received this roughly 1:6-scale body from a friend right around the time that Pro-Line’s Pomona wheels and Hoosier tires came out and they fit together so perfectly that he changed that plan and went for a drag truck instead. To get the right length and stance he went with a homebrew chassis that was built from a Vaterra Twin Hammers front tub and Axial SCX10 rear frame rails. He kept the front and rear suspensions from those trucks as well, narrowing the SCX10 rear axle by ¼-inch to help the tires fit in the wheel wells, and he removed the axles and diff from the Twin Hammers front end.
