    This is very cool.

    I am happy to see this coming together. The interior is spot on. I like the seat fabric brought on to the dashboard.

    Great looking truck. Can't wait to.see where this goes.

    Those mcpherson strut type front controls are really slick. Would it be possible to see a little more about how those were made?

(Also the first time I've seen watts linkage on a rc)

    Like you, I am also a sucker for mechanically scale builds. Anyhow my struts arent ideal. Like you pointed out, the pivot point is within the shocks itself and not so much the joint at the top. So it has to overcome the friction that comes from the spring compression. Also even though my steering geometry does allow for quite some angle, I cant seem to get the most out of it, due to the servo placement and slop it has. So its alltogether far from perfect.

    But yeah, it does kinda work.

    Again thanks alot for the interest! Means alot given you amongst others have been a major inspiration for me. And no worries for 'hijacking' I love your escort build man!!

    Yes that video you linked is another nice one! It looks a bit like how kadoteru built his though with less details. I thought it was really funny that kadoteru went with macpherson front and watt's linkage rear, and almost at the same time in 2013 I was doing that too on my Escort build on the other side of the planet!

    I too would like to see more details of how you did the front suspension, like how is it attached under the skid plate, or maybe even a small vid where we could see the steering and suspension working! Your build is inspiring, and you made me discover this brand too. The chassis is pretty cheap and look very nice, though it is a Tamiya bruiser ripoff! I like how the rear shocks are mounted to the chassis, looks very realistic.

    It looks great! Hope it will handle on the road,but those esthetics of the bruiser chassis are definately a win.
