    My latest Monster Jam inspired Big Foot Pede project

    So I built a spare Pede out of extra parts and a roller I got on here. After a long time of debating what kind of body I wanted for this project I settled on the old school Big Foot (Although I've got another idea cooking... might need a 3rd Pede soon!!!)

    With my Son-Uva Digger VXL with Protrac kit




    I had to get creative with the body mounts so I didn't have to mount the front body mounts into the windshield.


    Painted body before the decals...

    After the first set of decals...


    Overall this was a pretty fun project both building up the Pede piece by piece and then painting the body. It was a lot easier than I expected to be thanks to youtube and some inspiration from GmoneyGrip.

    Yeah that's on the list to get. I just had my Digger at the track on Sunday and the Monster Jam tires run much better than the talons. I'll probably start with Monster Jams on them since I just need another pair of fronts. But I agree... once I get some more natural looking monster truck tires it'll make it better.

    You could also try the new 2.8 mashers. I am loving them v treads and how well they handle everything they see...

    Man that looks good. Like rag said a set of old school pede tires or even some mashers on revolver (2.2), but then 2.8's would look nice to.
