Willie had been sitting around my shop for months, itching to get out and do some wilderness exploring, so when he saw the Sand Viper I had modified with a ProLine Tuber crawler body, he ordered up a new paint job and some accessories, and now he's ready to go! I modified the chassis and body to fit together, painted it matte sage green and added some ProLine accessories, like jerry cans, a winch and lights. Willie can really get around with a Sport-tuned motor, ball diff, ballraces, aftermarket shocks and Dirt Hawg tires. He left this morning for parts unknown. I can't wait for him to send back some pictures!

Top draw! Love it ! Very inspiring - Nothing like a scratch built baja racer. I think it looks better than most stock kits you can get. Well done! Now lets see some action shots!

I love this! It's such a shame Proline stopped making that Tuber chassis/body - it is so versatile!
