Well since Chris posted up his Superduty it was only a matter of time until I posted up my T1. I won't spend time on chassis specs, but same chassis, slightly different setup in the placement of battery and electronics. It's overdriven by 20% like Chris's, plans are for a higher o/d and a front one way and maybe a steering mod ... that'll come in the winter with time... anyways.

This is pretty close to what I'm aiming for:

This is the paint so far, little bit of cleaning up to do, I masked (first time) and chris sprayed.... somehow I still woke up with a headache and we even stood up-wind, outside..... odd anyways

Still to come: Lights, Half interior, body accessories, and a very very very small amount of stickers....

Nice.
I did a bit of staring at it. I like. Can barely wait for you to get all the light buckets and accessories in!

I always liked the lines on the rear quarters on those bodies.

Ok so it's been a little while on an update, I could start giving excuses but there is no really no point in trying, I'll just end up sounding like a jerk....

Light buckets!

There are small little varriences that will probably annoy my at some point but a) it's really the first body I haven't paid someone to do and b) that's what happens when you use yokomo buckets in an HPI shell...

Next week looks promising for the interior...maybe...hopefully....

So it's been a little while, not a great amount has been done though.... decided I wasn't busy enough and bought a farm ...sigh...

Anyways, interior painted and installed. led's with a hobbyking controller...
