Further Description/Back Story This is brittany's truck. All hers she had this since 1.5 years old. The hobby shop said I was nuts for buying it for her. She is 3 years old now. She drives it all the time, so far she broke NOTHING on this truck. Pink truck makes sense to her, she loves this truck. Bugging me to take her out all the time. She also races this truck along with bashing, and races this truck on are family race track that we have in the back yard. She keeps this truck supper clean all the time. She cleans her truck by herself. No help from mom or dad. She uses every thing from spray bottles to mini vacuums to toothbrushes to paint brushes to clean her truck. She also uses this truck as a push toy. Brittany's 1st real race she took 4th, against buggy to trucks.. she was by far the youngest racer. Most where adults.

Brittany's prospective…. l like driving fast. I like racing in the house , my favorite thing is leaving skid marks on the kitchen floor(mommy's favorite, hehe), I like driving down steps(that's how she broke her toy R.C.s), I like driving over other people's cars, I like jumping really high, I like doing wheelie and flips, I like flipping my own car back over. I like to corner Marshall races, I like putting stickers on my truck. I like pushing my own toys with this truck, I like putting a rope on the truck and pulling me on a skateboard, I like driving over my legs and people when they lay down. I like goofing around with my truck.
This truck was designed by my father, and by the local hobby shop personnel to provide a strong reliable truck.. some parts are put in by hobbyshop. Those parts are unknown.
Picture of truck on stand.. my daughter is very strict on putting truck on display with her special black carpet all cleaned up on display for all to see in living room. Will not let other freinds of mom or dad touch truck or get too close to it.
