MONSTER SPRINGER
« on: May 11, 2008, 05:37:22 »
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.

Mark. (and Angie)

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.
