Further Description/Back Story Airborne Ranger was one of the first hot wheels models that I had growing up and it quickly became my favorite and I was sad when I no longer saw it during Monster Jam shows. In the fall of 2020 I reached out to Ranger Joe Cypher and told him that I wanted to recreate his truck and he loved the idea. So now almost a year later this truck has become one of my favorites in my fleet of trucks. I compete with this truck in the RCMTC Challenger class points series and from time to time I also use it in their Pro Mod class.
