found this on the bay, it looked alright from the picture they took, and i'm quite pleased with it, i plan to restore the shell to box art, and then use the chassis as a runner, for one of my pumpkin shells.

look at the pics of the chassis, they have done some crazy things, like install all the front steering arms uprights and servo back to front, and theres enough dirt on it to make a hill for it to climb up when its working. i don't know if it works yet, i haven't had time to test it.

if any one wants to give me tips on painting it, like what yellow to use, and how to get a nice finish then please email me or leave a comment, perhaps if i sprayed it silver then translucent yellow that might look smart, i think thats what westy did on his pumpkin and thats looks wicked. any way please let me know.
cheers :)

UPDATE, i've just tested the truck, crystals battery, and amazing she works fine, the steering is a joke though, because of the set up, when steering one of the tyres, (the opposite to the way you are turning), goes at a right angle causing the truck to lock up, and it does the same when steering in reverse. also, the lack of springs securing the rear fixed axle suspension set up means that it doesn't wheelie, it just wags its wheelie bar, like a little doggy. i wil post pics soon. :)






don't you just love it when posty comes lol they said it worked ? surprisingly it does ??????????? not to bad i suppose hhmmm ? lol
