thumbs up on the build - when team associated makes this a kit you should get full credit! Bonus points for using a CVR. Still have mine in the old rc10gt factory team.

Man, you should send this chassis off to M2C so they can make a run and sell them! I want another gas truck!

It's a runner.

Track is too wet to run until next week. Ran it in the street for a tank. Jumps off skateboard temps just fine.... Maybe a little nose high. Can't wait to get it on the track and get some video.

I spoke with them and they can make them. Cost is the issue, working on that part and how many would need to be made to get them to a reasonable cost.
