Talking K100 day Cab Cracker Box

Ok so since Jon and Travis cant keep there yaps zipped I guess it is time to come clean and post some picks of a little day cab COE show rig I am putting together. Jon showed me the picks of this little truck the other day and ever since Rouge built his awesome little single axle day cab pete and Travis little day cab knight hauler I have wanted to build a signal axle day cab truck.


So here is a pick of the bits and bobs..Going to run a R2 tranny with a 65 turn and a 6 tooth onion/ 645 steering servo/ Verkrik low pro tires/ 11 3/4 frame rails/ Glob cab cut way down and other pieces and parts.


Ok here is the built frame with the running geared lowered way down I had to notch the frame in the rear for the axle to travel..


Frame with stock body to the left of the blue tape is where the body gets cut.


Ok time to move the wheel well I think..


And I think this looks right..


Ok that is it for tonight!! More to come.

I like the looks of this already. Not sure if you need to go with that motor and gear combo. My Stude has a 55 turn motor with about a 13 tooth pinion and it is plenty slow with the R2 in it.

....and the keyword on the last comment is TIME. It seems like a month or two ago you were building the "State/County truck" with plow and sander. I'm sure that was probably 20 trucks ago though.

Talk about being creative in fitting all of the stuff to run that in the cab or anywhere else for that matter.

LOL yeah it is going to be snug just getting a esc in it but my esc is the size of a .25 cent piece and I will be running Lipo so the battery will be small.
