|Further Description/Back Story||The inspiration for the build was based on the Reefs RC Raw 500 servo, showcasing the talent and craftsmanship of the best in the hobby. So many have built a mall crawler, I wanted a “Raw Crawler”. All metals have been stripped down and either polished, sand blasted or clear coated. Nothing hidden, just natural beauty of the materials and artisans work. The build was unveiled at the Ultimate Scale Truck Expo 2021 and earned the honor of being awarded for best metal work.
The Raw Crawler is a fully functioning scale build and will see many trails and SORRCA class 1 events this year. The plan is to show it again at USTE in 2022 with miles of smiles worth of dents.
