    Monster Truck No More

    Well I knew it was only a matter of time, Monster Trucks just dont fit the kind of driving I like to do. The Pede 4x4 is no doubt my favorite RC so it was only a matter of time before I had my Pede looking like a Stadium Truck. Today I finally got a body to fit low enough on the chassis to not make the G-Loc tires I like so much look funny on the Pede. Now my Pede 4x4 looks almost identical to my Rusty. I finally have what AI really wanted all along, a 4wd Stadium Truck.







    and finally a nice little touch from my buddy ksb51rl

    Looks good Dad. I'm a big fan of the Desert Rat bodies. The license plate is killer!!! I bet the 5700kv is a beast in it for sure. Any running video??

    I dont currently have any videos of the truck running or otherwise, might have to do something about that.

    No problem on thread jack, you should post the link for everyone.

    Yeah you can run without the wheelie bar the center diff and/or throttle control, I just like riding on the wheelie bar

    That looks sick with the G-locs now!

    a center diff and a little weight on the front bumper might keep the front wheels planted. (no wheelie-bar)

    Just so long as you don't have to turn.
    I wonder if that body would still work on a 25mm extended Stampede 4x4 (i.e. Slash 4x4 chassis.) It wouldn't look as good, but maybe not too out of place?

    Man those plates are sweet KSB. Can I ask where you can get them made. I may just go to our local Walgreens or sign shop. Awesome idea.
