Default Wheely Digger

Turned a wheely king rock racer project into a Gravedigger for my friends son....running a VXL, 32p gear conversion, lipo, and added swaybars for monster truck duty. Butched the decals up front, but good enough for a 6 year old. Have some more details to finish up, but had to take it for a test run

Chassis work:





Posers:




Some random action shots - super fun to drive. Geared a little low, have to work to keep the fronts on the ground. Do like!

Looks like the old Duratrax Maximum MT rims and tyres to me... 2.6" wheel, 5.5" tyres bit like clods but narrower overall.

Looks good by the way OSRC
