    yeah,I was looking for something different on my wheels,is mostly a winter thing,I might damage the plates on the rocks in the summer,so I'll probably remove them for the dirty seasons.and thank you,I'm honored and feel blessed to have made the team,thier a great group of people,and I can't wait to work with them!

    That's an interesting mod on your wheels. Love those snow shots. I got cold just looking at them. BTW: I just noticed you made your goal of becoming a Team Driver for RC4WD - Congratulations.

    Time for more on the power wagon!
    sort of an update really,I haven't done anything radical to the rig,since it was complete,but I did make some beadlock plates,I wanted a tougher military look,so I took some thin automotive aluminum sheet and cut to the diameter of the axial ring,made some holes in them and screwed on top of the axial rings as decorative plates,I also added some gcm racing simple black hubs in the rear,I won these a little before Christmas,but the mail was backed up,so I basically just received them lol,I find they look pretty good
    and that's about it,other then that I just got the truck out and drove it,here are some pics of it in the great canadien north
    enjoy the photos!

    Love the snow shots. Truck looks right at home in that enironment. Joe is probably wishing you hadn't put his window "down". We are just now getting some rain here in my part of California. For playing in the snow I have to drive an hour or two. However, rain brings mud and I like playing around in mud. Although, I don't like cleaning up afterwards.

    Here's a couple of shots of my current project. Chassis is complete but the cab and bed (being painted) are WIP. Cab is partially taped together for fit checks. The cab requires a lot of glue so need to make sure everything fits as there is no turning back once glued. Completed truck will have an Alaska mining company theme.

    That's a real nice looking Power Wagon you built. Great set of outdoor shots. Been to any competitions yet?

    Yeah,the table is full!I'm hopefully gonna start the comp power wagon this week,I already got the tires,so that head start is encouraging! The dully will most likely be started around November or December, money is tight and one project at a time seems sufficient!-lol!for the loaner,I might actually let him borrow my cc-01(not to much delicate scale stuff to come on that one,the project sort of fell to the wayside for now)he's 9,should be strong enough for himi'll probably build the Cherokee for myself as I really love those trucks!so that's what's coming, the thread for the comp p-w should be started in the next couple of weeks!

    You have a lot on the build table. I see you found a good use for that first Power Wagon body. That should look pretty cool. A dual tire extended cab pickup truck was a thought of mind once but decided not to go that route as the wheelbase is just too long. I do like their looks but I figured it wouldn't be driven that much as it would always get high centered. Look forward to seeing what you do with your build.

    What's with the loaner? I just let my friends take pick of what they want to drive and then watch them like a hawk to make sure they don't do "stupid stuff" with it. I take better care of my RC trucks than I do for my RL vehicles.

    Oh I got a couple of thing coming,there's three on the list now(aside from the cc-01 and tf2).1:a class 3 comp power wagon with choped fenders(pic below)2:a 2014 Chevy Silverado dully tow rig(shown in pic with single rear wheels) for my comp truck and 3:a 92' Jeep Cherokee to loan to a friend on my crawler team(no pic yet)I can't wait to get building on these projects,but right now I got lots happening on my tf2 hilux(I'll be posting the pics soon!)and getting ready to host my 1st event!but this winter should be packed with wrenching and building!

    Great set of outdoor shots. Your truck looks awesome in its element and strutting it's stuff. Joe is indeed proud of what he has been empowered to drive and show off. So, what's coming up next on the building table?
