I'm pretty sure the truck is a Lexan Nissan Titan 'Racing', but that chassis... Now that I look more closely at it I'm intrigued! Is that a 2WD chassis? :lol:

My guess is that the Titan is mounted onto a DF-01 chassis like the Porsche Cayenne Transsyberia.. :lol:

Yeah but... Look at that chassis below it on the right.

Does that look like a DF chassis to you?

Looks fairtly close to original, not easy to see what they've done with the battery tray area.

I see they've lost the Toyota windscreen sticker - rather strange given their other recent Toyota models ?

I wonder what improvements does the re-Bruiser have as usually there will be display/ layout on the table with new parts like the re-avante for example. But I don't see of those near the Bruiser except a bottle of some sort.

I'm also little disappointed with Nissan Titan it look too plain, no light bars , skid bar etc.. Kinda like that re- stadium truck

I'm no expert on these but I think it's fair to say that is not a High Lift chassis. :blink:

Although on the flip side I can't really make out any shiny metal from the photo either. :lol:

Almost looks like a DT02???

As far as the bruiser goes, I'll definitely have to get one based on this, now, how do I afford one, what have I got to sell I wonder?

Thats great News....!! I was afraid that it would be just anothe High-lift based chassis but form the look of it its not..! Decals,bumpers and rear bed looks the same ...dark windsheild on the other hand...!

One more on my wish list...:-)

Cheers

From that blurry photo it looks more similar to the high lift chassis than it does the original one. I wonder if they've just beefed up the high lift chassis for it? Difficult to tell from those photos. It looks to me like it's got the black axles with the large silver diff gear cover of the high lift.

Edit. Actually it's really to dark and blurry to tell what it is. Certainly can't see the high lifts raised gear box. Wonder if it's a whole new chassis incorporating elements from both old and new 3 speeds?

If you look closely you can just make out the curvature in the tread. Pretty sure they are the originals.

The windscreen just looks tinted because of the low lighting. I can just about make out a brown interior in there too. :lol:

I'd be amazed if they did that. To me it just looks like they have modded the battery mounting area to accomodate lipos etc.
