Further Description/Back Story I was able to purchase this body from a friend around the time that the Pomona wheels and Hoosier tires came out. I had originally planned on making it an Offroad truck, but the tires for too well to not build a drag truck. It has a home brew chassis that was built from a Twin Hammers front tub and an Scx10 rear chassis.
