Hemi Powered Clodbuster

My Clod is more of a stomper than a crawler, but I know you guys like realistic details and thought you would appreciate this more. My Clod will be celebrating its 22nd birthday this year, so I decided to add some cosmetic details that are completely non-functional. The engine is a 1/10 Parma Hemi that I've had for about 15 years but just never built. The interior tub is just a crayon box I found in our Salvation Army pile in the garage. It was a perfect fit, and the right color too. I made the door cards out of sheet plastic and added arm rests, handles, and window cranks from RC4WD. The seat, steering wheel, and shift levers are also from RC4WD. Any Mad Max fans out there should recognize the driver. I put everything together using Zap glue, so it's all super strong. I've already run it hard a few times, and nothing has come loose. Enjoy!

I was confused... thinking you just run it with the guy sitting in what is still obviously a crayon box till I read the caption on the last pic. Please, post another pic of it with the Body on so we can see the full effect?

Looks great, nice work.
