it was poorly put together ,the tranny was missing parts ,no grease on any moving parts,the cab was painted with house paint,everything was glued on with globs of model cement,the driveline was loose ,inside the body there were sticky coffee stains as you can also see down the outside of the body .it was a real mess of a build

Really sweet trucks, you should be proud of your work.

Are there any 1/10 scale trucks? I think it would be cool to be able to load up a Touring car or two.

The link on the rear, is that a remote lockable 5th wheel?

I was at a race long ago, before we had enough battery for warm up laps. Before the heat a truck and trailer comes out on the track, backs up to the grid, the trailer tilts up and the buggy rolls off. It was hilarious.

i don't think there are any 1/10 scale trucks unless if its custom built ,and the fifth wheel pull you see is manual although a few of my other tractors have the motorized fifth wheel that you open and close with a channel on the radio.i run a 4 channel for most of my trucks ,a 6 channel for my optimus and a 7 channel for zeus.go big or go home is what i say
