My wife decided she did not want to be left out of all the fun and she decided to build a Springer tug for herself!!!! :) :)
She nicked one of my springer hulls I had going spare and built this in a couple of days using a Tamiya body shell from a monster truck. We thought this might be appropriate as she has always wanted one of these trucks to drive every day.
Hope you all like it.

Give me a chance I have to wait for the paint to dry first. It's a shame you are not coming to Mayhem because the beers will be cold or the kettle would be on.

Just a quick update, Angie finished her springer off today, it now has suspension and the wheels are now free wheeling and will hopefully turn when it is underway.
