Further Description/Back Story My 7 year old son and I fell in love with u4 racing and trophy style trucks so we had to try racing with our local club in U4RC. After designing a patriotic wrap for his rig I set the sights on mine. I loved the vintage class 6 Baja class and came across the Snortin' Nortons 71 nova. I had to make one that was similar but with trophy truck inspiration. I loved the long travel suspension look with the shocks sticking through the hood and the rear tires stuffed in the fender wells. This is by no means a shelf queen! Captain Insano shows no mercy!
