thanks qsl. Have we talked else where?

I have a long way to go. I plan on making it as scale as I can. Doors tail gates 3speed auto lights radio anything I can thing of. I had planed on using a 31 cc honda 4 stroke but I am now thinking it my end up E power instead. I am going to glass the body once it is done and all the interior parts are going to get coated in polyurethane then finished out they will be mounted once the body is glassed. Its not 1/4 scale but close. I is 3.6 scale based off the wheel base and track width of a 85 model Toyota truck though I made it look a bit like a mix of ford and Chevy. This gives me a wheel base of 29.5" and a track width of 15" at the center of the tires.

By the way txman or fred k or what ever you want to go by today. I did not email you friend. I am not going to email you friend. If he wants to run a rc business then he needs to at the very least have a web site. I do not respond to you pm's so stop sending them. Just because other people do things other then how you would does not make them wrong. if everyone in the world was the same the would would suck. grow up and go on.

thanks

Didn't get much work done on the truck last night. I did finish up the transmission tunnel. doing a motor swap before one even goes in. just ordered 2 x 970, 2 x 11T Mod 1 pinion's, and a Custom Savage 970 Mount. going to run it on 10s lipo one big esc and wired the motors in seres. So I will basically wind up with 2 970 running on 18.5 volts each and I want need 2 esc. should have tons of torque and top out around 25mph with the gearing I am looking at.

Frame is looking good. This is a very interesting project. Do you plan on keeping the body this material, or are you going to make a fiberglass mold off of it?

I dont think we have spoken before, but maybe you have been on my website??

QSL thank you. I was very proud of the way the frame turned out and you are the only one that has said anything about it. I am going to fiberglass the foam. the foam will remain though. I dont think I will glass the the inside I had just plained on using poly to seal it and then detailing it out. I am not out for all out speed or blowing through the mud or even crawling over rocks. I want it to be as scale as possible. I want the look of a mid 80's truck with a 12" lift and 40"x15"15" tires. The tires are the part that is kicking my but. I cant seam to find any that look right and are the right size.

By the way you have a great site and yes that was what I meant.

I welcome and suggestions any one might have.
