Default 1/4 Scale Grave Digger with a V8 engine in the works

Has anybody been following RC Wizzard on YouTube? He is amazing. He started on the project on building a "1/4 scale Grave Digger with Conley V8 engine" about 3 years ago.

Since then he has posted about 20 videos showing his process and he estimates that he will finish the truck this summer!

If you haven't checked out this project yet you have been sinning. It is a must for every RC fan out there.

The first couple of parts showing his progress (4/21 videos):

#1: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pFFx27bthCM
#2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b9aBCpx_XfU
#3: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rTDuxdXWbtk
#4: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DJ2i2F503yI

You can find the rest of the videos in his channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/rcWizzard

Super cool. love those V-8's.

Thanks

I used to fly Heli's back in the late 80's. and they birds were not exactly what they are today. Once one of those Ole Timer machinists got ahold of one, it was amazing what they cold do with a bench lather and mill.

Watch him make the tires. Dude is smart!

He bought the motor from Conley, http://www.conleyprecision.com/ .
However, the exact model he uses is no longer available at their site.

I think this thread should be stickied to the top until he finishes the truck! =)
