  1. Truck is finally getting some attention, all the molding seams have been sanded and I need to go over everything and get ready to spray some paint. The back lid will be satin black. Main body I am hoping for a candy red. Bit humid to paint yet but hope to be done in the next couple of months. I still need a lighting kit for it and some better tires. Slowly getting there
  2. Starting to warm up here. Need to test out some paint I have on the plastic. I need to clearance the hood and clean up some flashing and then I can paint
  3. No updates.. life and work have gotten in the way, however it is starting to warm up here, soo I am hoping to pick out some paint for this rig
  4. Same here.. I remember going to Rosemont Horizon ( Now Allstate Arena) for a Monster Truck Jam .. I remember the Michigan Ice Monster as well as many of the others I have seen built on here
  5. cool.. Do you know what material he printed the blade out of? I would love to build a plow for my HG407. Your info so far has helped thanks
  6. Well this one is not strong enough. I did finish it to see if I like it. It needs some work and would need to be printed out of ABS.. the original design had the push bar out too far here it is complete for a first prototype
  7. Body mounts are done.. stock rear works perfectly, I 3D printed the front mount, not sure if I need side mounts or not. I assembled most of the truck, but need to take it apart for paint. Hood is a bit tight so I need to clearance it as the paint will make it a bit thicker. Also anything needing glue is not installed. Suggestions on glue to use.. i also have on picture of my 4wd converted Blackfoot Extreme with a Clod Body. The clod is definitely NOT 1/10th scale. I would like to find some sort of push/bull bar for the Blazer. I might need to design and print it..
  8. I found a set of aluminum 2.2 wheels.. they bolt up like stock.. That might be the best for me.. I do like how these wheel fit size wise with the Blazer body
  9. So I am liking the stance of the wheels (I have 3d printed Adapters in the front) so the wheels are the same width. I am considering the 12mm conversion kit , however I am not sure how I would extend the front to match the rear width with the conversion kit. I have also seen the 12mm Adapters in aluminum or printable, but I think I run into the same issue with width. Any ideas or suggestions on the 12mm conversion while making the front the same track width as the rear?
  10. Yep same here and I remember the transition from manual to auto. off topic, my youngest is finishing Drivers Ed, my oldest did 2,5 years ago, they don't speak or teach much about manual transmissions here. Sad really
  11. Finally got my Servo horn and drove the chassis a bit in my basement.. pretty cool with the 3 speed. now to start fitting the body to the chassis
