Angry YouTube and a shady business.

These guys bought Johns roll off repainted it replaced the aluminum with stock parts and took credit for building it. I built the truck and know I built. They also have a video of it before they reworked it.

What I built and John painted.

What they did to it but still the same truck.

Thanks for bringing that to light. I have went in and left a comment on the You Tube video expressing my displeasure of what they have done. I encourage others to do the same to support you. The more exposure to the theft the better.

Lightbulb Re: YouTube and a shady business.

Travis, You should go to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_lBkWNKUZgw and below his video is a description, just below that is a "more" button. Press it and then press on the "Report" button. The list allows you to pick "Spam or Misleading". Choose this and state your case directly to YouTube and they'll probably pull his video.

This is probably the solution you are looking for.

That isn't cool to be stating an original build, hope somebody doesn't actually want them to replicate a build and then having them not be able to deliver. I ask them a question along those lines to help in the comments

I was at Jon's house a few times and have seen this truck before, he sold the chassis apparently to hobbymasters, they are a local bobbby shop in red bank nj where Jon used to order a lot of stuff including kits. When I went in there for rc truck stuff, they stock nothing. So for them to claim they built it is ridiculously misleading. Travis did an awesome job on this truck and Jon did his usual outstanding peterbilt finishing work. The cab and all the chrome dipped aluminum parts last I talked to Jon were on a shelf in his garage and he was attempting to sell it. But was unsure if he wanted to totally sell it. I will say hobby master has been around a very long time and have a very good reputation but I'm completely disappointed in this move on there part. I know Jon pretty well and have since lost touch with him, but I know Travis and Jon built that truck which was the first of its kind and was one bad looking Pete, but it was parted for reasons that are private. I Wil be leaving a comment on the video stating there truth and telling them they are wrong for claiming to have built someone's else's custom build.

Whatever happened to John? Loved his work. He made the stacks on my Wedico Pete.

Hey the "original" truck was way better than that knock off that they say they built and Travis I saw your work through stylins thread and your work is awesome the funny thing is they tried to call it a custom build but we all know the real minds behind the custom aspect of the whole build.
