    Ill start it out I think this was a one of a kind. It's my rendition of what Sox and Martin might have driven if they were around today in a monster truck.

    I gotta include this big truck. The body was intended for s SCT, but I noticed it fit pretty good on my Savage Flux, so here she is. Raspberry Pearl And White Pearl

    I'm just curious, Does your truck perspire a lot? Do you make it sweat when you run it?

    Ran it yesterday and man those tires either it's the traction on them or the weight but my hs-7950th servo with 403oz of torque wouldnot turn them while on the ground.....lol

    Something has to be wrong. With 403 oz/in of torque it should turn any set of wheels you can fit on a savage with the wheels on the ground.

    Here's a few pictures of my truck. It's not a show truck, that's for sure. It's got more zip ties and frankenstein'd pieces than I can count, but it's my favorite basher. I even included a picture of my "custom" rear modifications, lol mt1.jpg mt4.jpg mt5.jpg mt6.jpg mt7.jpg

    Thanks X! I'm all about driving it like I stole it, then getting MacGyver on the case to get it running again. Here are a couple .gifs from my backyard playground. Excavated for a new barn over the winter, been thoroughly enjoying the dirt piles it left behind. I'm fortunate to have an awesome place to bash my truck right outside my back door.

    Do you guys get Troegs up your way? Nugget Nectar is my absolute favorite beer. Once a year and it's the best thing about February around here.

    Big parabolic backflip(size reference, barn is 18ft at peak):
