As a huge monster truck fan this box took my attention every now and then.... I made a small start with it, just to get myself going again  ;)

Thanks for sharing, yours is really bad twisted.
I hope mine is better but already noticed that my rear body parts (don't know the exact name) is bent. We will see what I can make of it, the quality looks little bit disappointing so far.

The problem is they put alot of parts in such a small box and the roll cage should be at least 6 pieces not 2 . It wouldn't very all jacked up if it was smaller pieces that had to be built up.... your definitely gonna need some putty on the axles to cause mine had huge gaps about the thickness of a dime
Sorry for the disappointing news by the way :-\ I really look forward to seeing you doing something great with it

Hey Rich, thanks man. Yes for sure, thats the plan!

Still don't know what colors i'm going to use, must say the US flag body looks very nice so might go for the original version.
