I've had some success ordering the Ross Gibson engines from Megahobby.com. They're under the model cars section. They have an aftermarket section for engines, plug wires, ect. I hope this helps with your engine problem.

Thx. Guys, Got some more done tonight.  I have to do the chassis a little different than a car do to the cab, I found some really good ref. pictures of a prostock truck chassis so that is what i'm going by. I had to change it some due to the fact that this is a step side,  Once i get my  parts from Scott for the 4 link i can finish the back of the chassis. I put an order into megahobby for another engine and tires since i have no idea when my other stuff will arrive. I'm really surprised how fast i'm able to get this chassis together, I guess it's from building the 1/16th chassis. I'm really enjoying building the 1/25th chassis's now that i have it figured out.

Joe- I am currently working on a similar truck, but stumped how to locate the rear bars for the 4 link around the step side? I thought I had it decent, but after opening the doors, found my roll cage was too far forward.  The pic posted above doesn't show up on my computer

 

Thanks for any help
