Default 1957 Gasser Pickup

Something Simple..Something Fun


HPI Wheels, Front cut and narrowed.
Its sitting on a stretched CC01 chassis, But might custom build something..(To be determined).
Pro line 57 chevy body as my base for inspiration.
Its a start, And I'm Brain storming on How far to take it for details.

Try it. If it doesn't work, try something else.

Love the idea! But in my opinion, if it's going to be a gasser, it must have a straight front axle on leaf springs, or it doesn't count.

As this is a Build with whats on hand in the parts box..No budget for this one.
Their will be some scratch building going on for sure.

Thanks guys.
I'll be doing a simple chassis from Komacel..I'm visualizing some chassis flex that picks up one tire form the chassis twist from launch....lol...Could look sweet with a slow-mo vid.. .
Transfer the weight back for your wheelies action, maybe mid engine.
Keep it light of course, for some speed.
Start with a brushed set up i have right now but go Brush-less with 3s batt later.
Something simple ....something fun.
I have the first coat of flat black on body... Time to start creating a front axle.

For a build with whats on hand. Run to lowes or tractor supply and get a length of 1/4 ally rod. Make solid front axle from it. I'm POSITIVE you have the tools and abilities.

Thanks Lou.
I spent two hours last night playing around with different chassis rails I have for mock up. The Sawback was a flop as the lower frame section sits two low.
and I have an older set of SCX10 rails that "jeffro" gave me that i Tried to use but made the Snoot point so skyward, it got a nose bleed....lol.
I made it as far to change out the black leaf stack to Red leafs.
I also pilfered the rear axle out of the older CC01 I have. I was Looking at using the 1/18 lozi Rear axle but it don't have the width I want, and makes the tires sit under the body instead of poking out the out side of fenders.. So some small challenges going on for sure.
