So any luck in figuring out if the full fenders can be used without issue with the motorized leg kit?

The only thing I think that it is missing is the new 5th wheel servo mount that looks like a catwalk. I think that would really finish of the truck vs. the servo being totally exposed like that.

Working on the fender thing right now. The servo mount is not currently in stock but will be added.

Mr. Anderson, Why does Tamiya always make it a complete pain to change motors or the pinion gear in the semis and F350 style trucks? You either have to completely (not quite) disassemble the vehicle or cut the tranny cover to do any kind of changing.

This build is one of the best tutorials to date. Showing how you wired the extra LEDs is a big help to a lot of people.

A BIG Thank you for taking the time to do this and for introducing this new truck to the forum.

Ok, let me preface this with I know most of you will know what trucks these are but I am labeling them for people new to tamiya tractors.

Thanks for laying them out like that Mr. Anderson. Looks like a set of Grand hauler rails and an extra set of cascadia fairing panels will make for a nice looking Cascadia
