Further Description/Back Story It started with a Tekno truggy my first 1/8 truck. I really liked that truck but it's gear boxes weren't willing to go where I wanted to be. The truck featured started out as a Kraton EXB roller. After watching too many Duperbash videos and spending too much time at the dirt park I decided a more dedicated build might be in order. The big motor isn't what you think it's for, the truck isn't particularly fast. The big motor gives some extra kick for aerial stunts. The truck is a blast to drive and it's an excellent jumper. On the ground it's really heavy, well planted, and accelerates like a rocket. It really is a blast to drive. Changes for the future; I've decided it's too cold for the RPM a-arms where I live so I'm going back to EXBs. After breaking my bellcrank leaping the chasm of death I've decided to reinstall the stock servo saver preload. The upper skid plate is to save money on wings. The skid plate has worn down really fast so a wing is going back on. Well that's the truck, I hope you like it.
