I've had it for a couple years. Since I work weekends I can't do the comps. So I just do it for fun. I have a nice crawl area by a park near me and sometimes I'll go out to Frenchmen or Moonrocks if I feel like getting out.
I'd post pics of my super modded Wheely King but 1. Don't have any yet. 2. I would look like a Vespa at a Moto-GP race... Jeep Liberty (not Inc's) in the Rubicon... Poindexter in a strip club... Catch my drift?
Here is mine, in progress. I bought it 8 years ago as a 100% stock brand new, XTM X-Factor Nitro Monster Truck. This is probably the 5th or 6th time that it has been completely torn down and rebuilt. I have ditched the nitro motor for 2 Novak 55t motors, and a Novak Superduty ESC. Dual 6 cell cheapo Radio Shack batteries. This truck originally had a cantilever, triangulated 4 link suspension with about a 12" wheelbase. Somewhere along the line I extended it to about 18"wheelbase and ditched the cantilevers, and replaced the stock driveshafts with t-maxx shafts. This time I decided to really build it right, I am building a complete new frame, 5 link suspension, 16" wheelbase, maximiser beadlocks, locked diffs, and more ground clearance. It is not a low CG, high tech crawler like alot of people have, but it suits me and my driving style the way it is, and it is huge, which is always good in my book.
Ok here's a few of mine its an ax10 with some tuning to the suspension and lowered a bit with a nitto heep body. i wanted to go more scale but still keep the ax10 drive train with tons of flex still looking for a 1/10 samurai body lol
