Latest Update 01/10/2020: Now wearing JConcepts F250 body OK, this is a bit of a random project. It began life way back in the mists of time as something completely different, but I'll skip the convoluted history and go right for the current status. I'm having a real thing for monster trucks right now, and I figured when I'd finished my TXT project I'd build a smaller, more garden-friendly monster from a TLT/Axial-based crawler that I put together a year ago from parts I had lying around. I put together a series of Showroom entries about it last year, which you can read here, if you want some more detailed history of these parts: https://www.tamiyaclub.com/showroom_model.asp?cid=133649&id=15729 I bought a JConcepts 1984 F250 body and some alu section that I could use to hack together a rough-and-ready truck out of these parts. But before that, I figured I should test-fit the monster truck wheels to make sure they would work with the axles and links. Here they are - HPI wheels and Ho Bao Monster tyres. These have a history too - they have been in my wheels box for over a decade. The tyres have gone white and powdery but are still soft and grippy. I needed to use Junfac axle wideners so they would clear the links and shocks. With that done, I figured I should take it out for a test-drive as-is, before I took it apart.
For sale, 4 lightly used TLT-1 shock absorbers. These came off my Lunch Box 4x4x4 scratch build, so have spent most of their life on a shelf model. The springs were not fitted, I was using them only as dampers for leaf springs, so the springs are still fresh. The shocks are also I believe a Hop up for the Juggernaut / juggernaut 2 monster trucks shocks remainder of sprues with spring tensioners, etc sleeves for shock tops These are rare to find now, but they are also used. The are very light scratches in places on the dampers, but unless you are fussy about them being absolutely mint, they are in very good condition. UK buyers only please, PM me with what they are worth to you, if someone buys them, I will send them 2nd class signed for via royal mail.
