Further Description/Back Story Hello my name is Brandon, I used to be a technical manager for chuck e cheese but after the covid chaos they shut my store down. Now I'm a delivery driver I spend alot of time on the road now and I see lots of big rigs so that's what inspired me to build a new truck. I always wanted to build one so here it is. It was built entirely using my tip money in only 3 months once I accumulated all the parts it only took a day to put it all together. I'm almost 50 now and I've been reading rc car action forever and have always wanted to submit a vehicle to the readers ride and see it in the mag i think I finally have something worthy for RC Car action magazine. Thank you.
