Other Options Brand and Model Truck has a bunch of other little things to make it work the Leaf Spring shackles also came from DiazDesignsrc and to get clearance for those shacked I had to install some Hot Racing Axial Wheel Hub Extensions. The truck has a Hot Racing aluminum transmission case with a dual motor plate which gives the truck plenty of power to turn those big meats and keep the temps cool, The truck also has SMT10 Diff gears, so everything is happy and works together with no binding
Further Description/Back Story Wanting an RC of Bigfoot was the whole reason I got into the hobby over 20 years ago, but seeing at the time there was nothing Affordable that looked good, I just painted a blue Super duty body for my Emaxx and called it a day. A few years later I saw an SCX10 and noticed the Axles had a beefy looking pumpkin which to me looked like the old 5 Ton axles monster trucks used back in the early days, so I got one in late 2013 and have been modding it ever since and this truck is the result, This is also a class legal build for Retro monster class that is ran all over the US.
