I got a chassis from Clodstall and decided to build a 1.9 scale truck with a clod body.

Great start, do you have axles for it? Will you be ready to roll on Nov 11th?

I ordered some axles Monday and some 1.9s so I guess I will be running the 1.9 class. I hope I will be ready by Nov. 11, I really want to make it out there this time.

I guess if all else fails I could rob my TLT for its axles.

Started on some bumpers.


My order came in from RCP. I painted the chassis and built my stage 4 axles. I got the wheels and tires mounted.


I need to order a straight axle kit for the rear and a motor and I should be ready to drive this truck.

I am waiting for an order from Tower to come in so I can get some more done. I still need driveshafts, body work and paint.



I have the body almost done for now. I still need to fill in the holes and figure out what to use for taillight lenses.

You need to drink more coffee and sleep less, this truck is taking too long.
