i have a dodge rammunition monster truck kit unbuilt and im not really into monster trucks so i was gonna turn it into a drag truck with some big slicks in the back just didnt know really how to make a frame for the bottom. i got a bunch of styrene and a bunch of old model parts from various cars and acouple of complete sets of cars that the bodys are too badly damaged to save. any help would be appriciated.

I think that using a truck kit other than a Monster Truck would be easier to work with as a "drag truck."

i was just planning on using the kits body and acouple other little things and the rest i would just build. i dont have more than 3 hobby shops in my area and i never seen a ram kit at any of them.

If you're going to make Tube Frame Drag Truck, then I would suggest you to see this one: http://www.modelcars...showtopic=56886 . There is scratchbuilt tube frame and with same method, it can be built to Truck too, of course. There are other very nice and helpful builds and builders in the Drag section.
