I've never run my TT01 with shocks. I'm kinda tempted.

I had hoped to try my Euro truck over the weekend. But circumstances beyond my control have ended any thoughts of racing for this year. Maybe after the new year I’ll try again

Guess it was just a Matter of Time before someone took the idea and started to stray from the original idea of the Euro-Truck Class...

I'm well aware. Wanting to play with the chassis is a thing though. :-)

Speaking of "not legal".

Sick body by Bitty, but it should never be allowed in box stock...

It would have been cool if Bitty made a scale Iveco or Scania perhaps, not go out and just put some futuristic touch on it, and Aero it out! Our old 200mm Serpent Trucks still looked scale! As did the Yokomo body.

The beauty of Euro Truck is that you don't have to invest a ton of $$ to race it competitively. Personally i will resist any performance bodies, parts or other upgrades as long as I race my Euro truck. I don't want to go down the path of endless upgrades w this class.

My biggest problem is the cost of the bodies. The bodies seem.. durable. (Mine is.. almost two years old now... and has seen a fair number of races) But they're not cheap. And take a lot of materials to properly prepare. Also, the body kits just aren't easily available. At least not the Team Hahn one that I am so fond of.

I still wanna pick up one of the Mini size semi bodies, and drop it on the track as a goof.

Anyone looking for a lightly used Eurotruck? I'll have mine up for sale in the next 24 hours, and it will come with an unpainted body, bearing kit, a few extra tires and a Spektrum servo. I'll post the link later.

We run the mccallister hot rod body as a second class for the semi chassis. All you need different is the bumper and you have a second class to run for the day.
