Further Description/Back Story A bucket list build that I wanted to do for years, and for one reason and another it took until now for all the parts to come together. 3 key factors happening all about the same time, made it possible… The Element IFS, purchasing a 3d printer and Knights Customs releasing the complete file pack for $19.99 on @MyMiniiFacotry. Every aftermarket 3d printed part and scale accessories used on this build I printed, painted and installed myself in my RC work shop, appropriately named “The Dog House” because of the size and I’m always in it, literally and figuratively. Using my go to trusted components from the brands I’ve represented for years like Castle, ProLine Reefs Cow RC, Treal My Trick RC and Powerhobby, this super scale trail truck not only looks the part it’s also a solid reliable performer.
