Default F350 Extended Cab Custom

This here is my adopted baby. I purchased her locally built. So far I've changed the paint, rims, tires, & servo. Still lots to do & so little time!

Thank you!

I had a little time to work on it this morning. Mounted glass, Integy Reservoirs, & painted the camper finally. Things are moving along great.

how do you get scale speeds out of that set up? Do you have trouble keeping it rubber side down? it looks really cool but just a bit fast.

Speed seems scale. I can whip a donut full throttle without flipping it if that says anything. The throttle input @ crawling speed is pretty good too. I'm going to take it out to the trail this week for the first time. So we'll see how she performs.

It sure is. I believe the previous owner was going for scale weight & toughness to match the Ford shell.

I love the dual motor setup. Those Titan's must make it fast.

I like the heavy weight, makes it feel substantial, like all that money you spent did not just vanish into thin air...

Took it for a short crawl up the road earlier. The last pic shows when I broke the servo arm.. Sucks when you have to carry the truck back to the truck
