I have always thought these Euro Trucks were cool, so with our local shop getting into parking lot racing I finally had an excuse to get one. I love how these look and drive, such cool little trucks.

As per the rules, she's built stock with the exception of bearings. I did shim the arms a bit, greased the shocks, and tightened up the front diff, but nothing outside of the rules for the class. Since we're running outside I have not glued the sidewalls yet, I'll see how it runs first. I know on carpet gluing the sidewalls is an absolute must to prevent traction rolling.

Excited to get out there and race it, looks like a really fun and competitive class.

I am loving that mate! Yeah this and Marlboro looks awesome on everything! Never smoked myself though but can't beat the cigarette sponsorship!

Thanks MAD-BEE. Agreed, whether you smoke or not the tobacco liveries were always the best!

Thanks guys! Almost a shame to race it, but that's why it was built. Hopefully hitting the track for the first time with it this weekend.

These trucks look cool in boxart but many times better in a classic livery as the JPS one IMO. Great work and good luck! I would love to get some parking lot racing going locally.

This one really got my attention in Forum, awesome job and nice to know it’s earning its keep out on the track as well. You must have a nice collection of left over box art sponsor Decals now too.

Thank you Re-Bugged! I will say it did get a lot of attention at the first race, pretty unique as far as Euro Trucks go and who doesn't love anything in the JPS color scheme?

First race went OK, satisfied with the result. Our of 30 or so trucks I qualified 15th, good enough for 6th in the B-Main. Finished in the same exact spot. I had some top 5 A-Main lap times, but since I'm still new at this I need to work on consistency and driving in traffic, so a few mistakes kept me in my spot. Overall had a lot of fun and looking forward to the next one which is tomorrow! I expect a better result, but honestly just want to be more consistent and get some laps in to be more comfortable with the truck.
