    It has been quite long time without monster truck and now I decided to make something. SMT10 would have been nice but money situtation is not so good at this moment.

    So I took my SCX10 and made old school "double" frame. Ok, it is not scale accurate because I don't have leaf springs etc.



    GCM front motor mount and CMS. Ok, I didn't like that servo in chassis so moved it to axle. Much better, maybe not so good lookin though.



    Roller with Jconcepts wheels and tyres:



    And here we are now:









    It's very nice truck to drive but wow I need to get better shock, add some kind of sway bar, open diffs, add some power etc.

    FANTASTIC! I love how you have made your own version of Grave Digger grandma truck so to speak all rusted up so cool

    You have the retro monster truck stance spot on what wheelbase are you using?

    Thank you for the comments! Wheelbase is roughly 12" at this moment.

    This looks fantastic, great work. I've been wanting to build an SCX10 based monster for a while. That frame looks great when used for a classic monster truck build.

    Second test run and I lost transmission... Now waiting for inspiration (and money so that I can buy better parts to transmission).
