lookin really good!!! i agree the hardcore does look plain in the proline pics, but looks much more like a real truck to me if you paint it differently than thier choice of boring colors. the desert rat is very agressive but doesnt have a true truck feel about it.

love the interior so far.

Truck looks awesome, But just a heads up on the "funky HPI gear".....when you destroy the wheely king ring and pinion.....which you will....go back to the "funky gear" you should be able to use them front and rear and they are alot stronger. I built a big block nitro mt2 and the stock gears ( same as wheely king ) wouldn't last a tank of fuel but the "funky gears" have not stripped yet. They are alot stronger design

Man, building an interior is tough...I have that much more respect for the incredible styrene work i see on here.

In any case, little more work done...realized the deadline for this is fast coming, so have to get a move on!! It's coming together, just very slowly. Made a racing seat for the driver, added the tunnel (needed to clear the chassis) and started working on the dash.

Screws will be hidden by the driver, and plan to add some foam to the seat.


From the back...having to make some compromises for the chassis design, though I have some room to trim everything out.


peek through the window!

I know, those gears are going to be toast. I have a spare set of the funky gears ready to go! plus they drop the ratio in the axles somewhat which will help out. Not sure why I never used them in the first place - I'm just too lazy to tear it down at the moment. Thanks for the tip!

Little more done to the interior...starting to take shape! Was going to do a light box so the instrument panel would light up, but realized that CORR type trucks only run in daylight....so why bother?

Thanks!!

Rolling along...seeing the light at the end of the tunnel here. Got the center stack done, added some "toggle switches" and started sanding and filling and almost ready to start painting and detailing. There are a few more parts to the cage, but they bolt on, have them off for painting. the whole thing is pretty strong, and will mount in the body with velcro so I can take it out if needed.




Dual batteries and ignition boxes, wouldn't want to stall out in the middle of a race!

This body will be a light runner, it's sturdy enough for running, though I'm not sure how it would hold up to a few rollovers. Planning on making mounts for it that will accomodate a plain jane lexan body as well for bashing.

got color? much more to do, but getting there little by little

More painting to be done, but got a coat of primer on the interior and spent the morning painting.




did some chassis work too - fixed the original cage and added a few supports to the body mount area. Made a new battery holder/fan box too while I had the styrene out.
