    i tried to get on a truck forum for this build and it was nothing but crickets.
    so i just had to post the darn thing on OSE, figuring it will be towing boats and my lunch.......Ha!
    the parts these engineers and tool and die men and women come up with just floors me, heck i just put the tools on it and it puts its self together.
    the Hot Racing Products i just could not resist i mean these trucks just like crawlers are forever endless in accessories.
    so the beauty of this has to go to Tamiya, Hot Racing, Integy, RC4WD, Holmes Hobbies, XTRA SPEED, XSpede, RPP Hobbies, Yeah Racing, JX Servos and
    Fast Eddy Bearings.
    Almost every screw, bolt, washer and nut is 304 stainless steel, there are some Tamiya specialized connectors you just can not purchase any where period, so those had to be used.
    So sammyha it is something i've been researching for some time, and on you tube these trucks are just so close to real, our hobbies have jumped pages since i was a young lad, The MFC-01 is going to be a first as far as the sound and vibration modes lights are never difficult just so many so time consuming.
    there's probably just a few more pics to share, dang there is way too many else where that are far niftier than this, that it has me wanting to do
    the semi-racing ones like my 1/32 scale slots, like these i have

    Did you try RC Crawlers? I have aTRX4 Body Bashing thread on there. On the Traxxas RTR Defender. I had no problems posting on that forum. Another forum with awesome info and support. Works exactly like this forum...

    i've been on RC Crawlers site when iwas building a Axial SCX10 and a Kyosho Mad Force i did'nt realize they had a section for 1:14 trucks. so i have been on there but it's been some time. so thanx for the update because it was most informative for my crawler and monster truck builds.
    i'll post some more pics after the weekend.

    it's been seriously fun to watch this machine come together, weighing in at over 5lbs and about 6lbs plus to go.
