    Pretty cool.
    I had the open wheel version of that same model. It was my first venture into the RC world.

    That is an awesome job.

    I have a Bronco scaler that I built. They are as much fun to build as they are to run.

    I belonged to a club in PA where we used to do competition RC rock crawling...scalers and comp crawlers.

    Here's my Bronco:

    That's pretty killer! My son (7) and I just started getting into RC vehicles. Kind of a time and money deterrent from the buggy project but he is really enjoying it. None of our stuff is nearly as cool as that awesome Bronco above...

    I've got a collection of nitro trucks that I hardly use anymore. Lot of money invested, but just not enough time to use them.

    Thanks!

    Check out RCCRAWLER site for the best place for crawlers and scalers.

    Nice thing about electric crawlers over nitro is that you only need a pile of rocks to keep you entertained. Lol

    That body is hard to get sometimes.

    It is made by HPI and was typically used on the T-maxx type trucks.
    http://www.rcplanet.com/HPI_73_Ford_..._p/hpi7179.htm

    It is almost 18" long and had a half roof and rollcage molded in. I cut that all off to make my scaler. Mine is a a frame style chassis with brake line bent to make the cage...interior is just different toy car parts pieced together and the driver is the "biker" Undertaker.

    All electronics are in a sealed box under the hood except for the working winch, and the battery goes in the rear diamond plate tool box. Body is held on by industrial velcro because I hate the mounting pins sticking out of the body.

    Most scalers are painted a rust color on the inside and then regular paint on the outside so it looks like rusted body scrapes when it gets scraped off. Do a search on Youtude for scalers and you will see some very realistic videos that will make you look twice to see if it's a real truck or not.
