Hey Rudukai, I finally sat down long enough to watch the video of the JK, I think its cool, looks like the futue is arriving everywhere, and I'm old guy.

Before I watched the video, I was going to ask, what 1:1 vehicle has full independent suspension, but that doesn't matter, does it.

Just like my Tamiya Tundra, it should be IFS, but it has a solid front axle as you all know, so, I just tell everyone who asks, that its an aftermarket upgrade, just like we do to our 1:1's

Sounds interesting, just depends on timing I guess

A walking truck would be interesting, but how would you do it?

I'll throw my vote in for IFS, lots of potential there for some really cool looking rigs that can perform as well as they look. Just take a look at what rbgerrish built on ORCRC, he calls it the hybrid:

I wouldn't mind seeing everyone give one of these a shot:

What about a buildoff where each builder is given a list of things that they can use and a list of tings that have to be used. for example any scale chassis is acceptible, any body is acceptible but for the build to be entered you must use a white push tack, a thread spool, a 1/8" dowel 12" long, or what eer crazy things you can come up with. This would give everyone a level playing field and challenge he creativeness of the builders to incorporate these. Now some guys will just stick the pieces on their truck but the idea is to be creative, not just stick all the stuff in your roof rack.

it could be interesting with the right choice of items, I can see it now, a spatula could become a truck's grill, bottle caps for hubcaps!

There are lots of interesting idea's being put forward on here.
Maybe a mix of some of them would be nice, perhaps an old school "hammer and a nail" build-off, where as many of the parts as possible are hand fabricated, or modified, with no fancy high tech machine tools or computer aided CNC stuff, basic shop tools only, limit the number of 'factory made bolt on parts' to be used, and award higher points for hand made or odd spare parts used in the build.
A C.A.D. (cardboard aided design) build-off, or The H.A.A.M. (hammer and a nail) build-off.
