Bought SNIB from Tower Hobbies; finally arrived this morning.
Update 1: build is complete. Fully ball raced, and fitted with a Duratrax Intellispeed Autosport ESC.
Update: Finally finished the body, and it's ready to run. :)
Fitted mullti-purpose Pro-Line Dirt Hawg tyres (2.2' Rear buggy on the front, and 2.2' Truck on the rear). Stock kit motor currently fitted, but will be upgraded soon :-)
Now it's time to take it for a spin...


Finished...Pro-Line Dirt Hawgs fitted... ...and painted to match the box art. Ball bearings for the build... It's finished (minus the body - I hate painting!!) SNIB - but not for long... Ready for stickers....

Thanks for the comments cyclepsych0
The paint job isn't tooo difficult, the only really tricky part being the black area behind the side windows. I hand brushed the black, then maked and aerosla sprayed 3 silver coats. Then aerosol sprayed 3 or 4 coats of white.
Believe me I'm no artist, so if I can do it, anyone can. Secret for me was patience and taking my time.
Goood luck

Your truck looks a lot better than mine. My tires are already toast, and I really dig those Dirt Hawgs...How do they handle? Overboard
