Further Description/Back Story Well, I love a good vintage mini truck build, the dancing bed variety. But I also love lifted ones too. So I had a few Clodbuster bodies laying around so I thought, what the heck!! 6 Door was born!! I stretched the chassis 6.5", the bed an 1" as well. Built he scissors lift, added a dedicated linear actuator for the lift, a 360 degree Hitec servo for the bed and a mini gear servo for the bed tilt feature. A small 25kg micro servo lifts the front clip as well.
