I thought that was you. Do you have any crawlers anymore? I sold the bruisers for race car parts. I was thinking about getting another one but I really need to try and just focus on one or two hobbies instead of 10.

That is funny to see fellow RCCrawler members on here as well. I use to frequent the site and poured all kinds of money into Bruisers. Restored one back to brand new and built a 1.9 that you see in the pic, and sold it off to another member on the site. I continue to kick myself for selling the restored one. When my son was only 18 months, he would see it and say Guk..... it was his first word... needless to say his mother was really upset!

I saw the bruiser in your avatar pic. I miss my bruisers! I'm sure I'll build another one someday.

Did a little work today, Made my reverse shifter and mount. Used RB motion rod-ends and bolts, still have detailing to do once it's all painted. I tell ya i have no idea how you guys that do the amazing detail with the little bolts on 1/25th, it's hard for me with the 1/16th stuff and a challenge but i'm enjoying it. Will have some updated chassis pictures tommarrow.

Hey Joe looking,darn good! I have to agree these bolts are small enough. The smaller cars I dont see how they do it.

Thx. Greg, Redid my reverse lever to move it, and finished up the center of my chassis and seat mounts. Spent most of my day rearranging my hobby room and putting in a new desk. Will post some pictures tommarrow night of my progress.

Finally had some more time to work on the chassis, I have most of the center of the chassis complete and the funny car part of the cage started and my seat mount pretty much complete. After work tommarrow i will get the driveshaft tunnel done then start on the upper part of the cage. really hard to get those little tubes right where you want them, I'm learning alot and so far i'm happy with the way it is turning out. definitely some things i will change on the next one i build, Also received my new turbos from TRD and there going to work good. I will get some pictures up of the turbos tommarrow night. sorry for the big pictures, i tried resizing in photobucket and doesn't seem to be working. I just started using photobucket.

Hey Joe, that work looks mighty darn good to me for being your first! If I didn't know any better, it looks like this wasn't your first attempt. See... I knew you could do it, now you are no longer a virgin to custom chassis work! :D

Actually your pictures are the right size, I dont have to squint to see anything and dont have to click on a darn thumbnail to see the picture. lol

However I would like to take a peak at your Funny Car cage and seat mounts a little better!
