Further Description/Back Story I built the Dynahead crawler first, I loved the body, 4WS & 6×6 capability but thought it would be fun if it was faster. I bought a King Yellow Bus, sold the body and found a Dynahead body on eBay (the Dynahead body is impossible to get). It's amazing how different they are, but both great in their own way.

Big thanks to John at Gallimods Hobby Shop in Baldwin place for the kits, controllers, paint, parts and advice. GalliMods Hobby Shop
