    King Hauler Drag Truck

    i see, that seems pretty much rear axle and frame with wheels, wouldn't be much weight. i always like that saying " why does he climb that mountain? because he can." yes if can not be done then, well, i'll find out for myself, can you say match stick?

    King Hauler Drag Truck

    from what i read, 4x2 is faster for these trucks.less load on the motor then two axles robbing power. long could be good for keeping straighter going faster longer down the road? i'm thinking no chine walking (rail dragsters are long) watch footage of a modified dragster vs stock pro, no hopping on Funny cars or Rails.

    Bodyshell wheelbase data

    chassis, wheels, and bodies, i make em all fit, joking aside, i think thats why i end up with so many extra parts, if i can't find the answer on line i email or call the manufacture or just purchase several different types and figure that they'll fit some other future build. it happens. it's not cost effective but then again this hobby for me dies, well, when i die. Hi, i'm ACCEL and i endorse a Yes vote.....................................................................................................................................................................................

    My midlife crisis backyard RC playground

    you have enough room for a magnifcient garden train. when all's said and done that'll be one of the last to do in my backyard, not as roomy as you have. what a neat place you have. putting green would be nice, perhaps a small rollercoaster.

    The plus side to this decision was the approval of the four Icons below........................

    AMG IRON PANTHER

    it was a decision between Tamiya's TR419XR, Schumacher MI6, Yokomo BD9, or Xray T4, read up on all them and they are all Radical, AE has parts everywhere and Amain and a bunch of others i shop at carry a plethora of their goodies. RCTECH had some fairly good insight of what this lineage of chassis has gone through.

    AMG IRON PANTHER

    it's so funny, again before photos i see what i see and then after posting here all the imperfections just pop out like tiny sore thumbs, but that's why they make paint pens. so a lil' more touch up, I found Flat Top LED's (did not see these coming until i googled diffused led 5mm lights) BAM! they do make them. i do not like spots, unless it's for my jeep or bronco rc 4x4's or my back yard patio lights. just WAYYYYYYYYYYYYY too bright (notice the shape of the bulb above) it's reflecting off the mirror shelf, it's not in its housing bucket yet. i'll touch the tip up with Testors Signal Red Enamel to help relieve that yellow/orange flavor.

    Picture advice

    ok, i gave imgur a try it seems to work, but it's only coming out like this https://imgur.com/orLbB3x now i'm trying from desk top, does the same thing. i think it'll be fine that way, Thanx a Bunch again Juggular and the others again also. now you all have created an IRON monster how about when dad spent all day at a Fair came home to develop his photos and no film in the camera i was about 12 years old then. HA!
