    i've always liked that truck and used to think Hua at rc4wd owned it till now. it truly is one AWESOME piece and you would never believe that that body is the same New Bright body cause of the way you got it painted. real nice work. nice how you got the motors up front under the hood too as well as the wheels.

    Thanks Breaker. Hua does own it (unless he sold it) but he didn't build it.

    Btw, just got my hands on a 1/6 wrangler. Don't think I'll go crazy with it, but the motors under the hood is very tempting, which of course leads to a whole custom chassis, which leads to........... :willy

    It's an Avalanche 1/6 scale body, disassembled, painted, and put back together. Took about 3 months to build the whole truck.
