Got the CXT out for a second shakedown run. The air filled front tires level it out pretty well, and the truck performs rather well considering its leaf springs up front.

Good to see it running around man. On the inflating rc tires I bought a ton of volley ball fill ports but havent tried them yet lol. On stuff smaller than 2.2 I think the car tire style valve might be too big.

I also think on higher speed cars or trucks it would unbalance the wheel and tire significantly. I picked up a two pack of the gas strut mounts, you've likely seen them holding hoods and hatches open on cars and trucks. So they can take a fair amount of weight and force.

Waiting on this stuff to dry. Need to finish up some body work still, but tomorrow it should be getting paint.

Crazy cooinkydink...I just watched In4Lo on Prime yesterday, where they were running an M923 6x6 offroad. Watching your large CXT running down the trail reminded of the M923 doing the same. Just awesome!

Thanks.
The weather hasn't been cooperating for paint. But I made a new fuel tank for the truck. Need to figure out how I am going to mount it, but it will have dual tanks with built in steps and the rear steps might be stock or I might try to make a tool box.

Airing the tires, why did you do that, for more scale appearance of the truck as it runs?

As in the suspension action & movement. Whatever the reason, slick idea. heavy truck need 2 motors?

Air in the tires just cause the crawler tires are so soft. I don't know if it needs two motors, I just wanted two motors.

Little video on where the truck is sitting. The paint is going to be a little slow with the cold and damp weather.

The difference is your tanks look like they hold fuel. Paint and cold weather, know about that. What paint type, are you changing color, or detailing and highlighting?

I spent about 40 minutes with a paint guy at NAPA to match the paint of the body, they can actually mix most paint into single stage rattle cans. So it is just normal automotive paint. Which was what was originally used, I just couldn't remember the paint code.

I used NAPA paint on my wife's 32 truck, 2 stage Peter Built blue. Was not aware they could mix spray bombs, this is interesting.

Need to check that out, got me thinking. Have a color mixed for a rattle can, instead of loading it into a spray can. Put it in a bottle .....bingo an instant airbrush mix.

Thanks for the tip I going to chase that down. These model paints are over priced for a 1-2 oz bottle.

great thinking

Cool paint on the truck, even better now knowing it is your creation .

The stuff NAPA mixs into a can isn't all that cheap, but it does spray nice.
