Dare I ask how much one of these will set me back for my Scorcher runner?

Really like this. Inspires me to do a blackfoot body on my Touareg. I really like the way these look so scale. Excellent job.
My sons rising storm
My son has not had a problem yet. We have not tried to raise the ride height. But I am sure someone in the forums will have an idea.
Fortunately for him I love RC cars as much as he does. We got this from Stella Models at a great price.
Finally finished high lift
I don't know about Ford doing the mirrors colour coded, I just decided I would. It is supposed to look like the Toreador Red over Silver from the Ford site. Mind you they are only held on with velcro so I could take them off and do them black! I used Tamiya masking tape to very carefully mask the windows and then used a very small brush laid flat to paint the frames. Same for the bumpers. The only black that was sprayed was on the flatbed. I had a nightmare job getting the paint to take round the fuel cap. Must have been some release agent left in there. I had to sand it very carefully and apply more paint. Also when doing the flatbed yesterday morning I used Tamiya masking tape to mask the detail and then normal houshold masking tape to do the rest and the glue from the household tape reacted with the paint / clear coat and ruined it. It took quite a bit of polishing to get it back how it is. In fact I think I polished all the clear coat off. Anyway I'm please how it came out and it sure was a learning experience. Thanks for your comments guys. Does anyone have a head without a helmet they want to sell ? cheers Paul
Highlift with his new boots on.
Wheels are HPI F5 Truck Wheel Chrome part number HP3047. They are for the MT2 type trucks.
The sandmann workbench
now thats what I call a hobbyroom. Very nice.
Yup, its getting there. I robbed my T-Maxx today of its Hi-Tec 645 servo seeing as it hardly ever goes out any more, and I use the Lift all the time. The lift kit really makes a difference. Clears much better now and the exhaust stay away from harm as well. Jugg light kit also fitted now but no pics yet.
Tamtech buggy champ
Thanks for the tip off. Ordered mine as well.

Wyoming, I agree. I have a few cars i'm wanting but as soon as i saw this was available the Buy-It-Now button was hit immediately.
Very happy bunny!! I did see yours Ted but wondered if this is the 1st bought 1. Cheers guys.
2 updates from me in a week, surely a new personal best!
The Hobbymaster (TC Member) makes a very good lift kit. It includes 10mm axle lift and 15mm body lift. If you PM or check his trades or Ebay auctions there might be some available. Nice truck by the way. I had the same google moment whilst on the web looking at the Geolanders and some nice wheels.
Looks great. Can't wait to get mine on the sand !!
Brand new bruiser with nickel plated chassis
Now thats what I call 'Hog Heaven'. I love it.
F-350 off roadin'

High-lift hilux project
Hi Wyoming, Great Truck!!! Thos wider diameter tyres really make a difference. My son will be building his soon and he will be looking at yours for some ideas. Excellent stuff as usual.
Great news, thought i would share on tc today...
Happy New Year. And good health all three. Cheers Paul.
Brrrr durga and hilux in the snow
Happy New Year Seth. I hope we get some snow here in the UK soon so me and my son can take our High Lifts out like that. Can't wait to see what you are going to create in 2008. Cheers. Bunny555
