Ever since watching King Cabs and Monster Racers blast their way around my local track for the Vintage race meet my club hosted back in June, I have been desperate to get my hands on a truck. A fellow racer from my club knew I was after one, so we struck a deal on what you are looking at now. Since purchasing it, it has undergone a full restoration, with a new body and decal set, every single screw has been replaced, and a number of plastic parts including bumpers have also been replaced. In addition to replacement parts, I have added a set of universals, ball raced steering, hi-cap dampers and a Technigold engine I had sitting around.
While this seems like it's factory fresh (and it is) this isn't destined for life on a shelf. It will become a genuine racer once I bolt on some modern wheels and some quality tyres (as opposed to the rubber on it now, which I just threw on the rims to take the photos). It has been fitted with a classic Novak GTX brushed speedy (I use these on all of my vintage runners), a high end Ace 1015 Servo and spektrum radio system.
Keep on eye out for future actions shots of this bad boy tearing up the track! ;-)
