  1. Jesse, I would check the internet for pictures of Full size Ford pre-runner and race trucks for information. When I did my conversion of the Revell snap Expedition to more detail I used the front 4x4 suspension from the Lindburg F-150. But I think a pre-runner/ race truck would be better for the Aussie Ball. Tim
  2. I use both. Depending on the color If I can find it in a spray can I will use it. If not I will break out the air brush. My problem is I have zero place to air brush, I use my utility room/ bath room. putting paper down on the floor. I do miss our old place where I had a basement and a spray booth. Tim
  3. Last time I purchased anything from Arrowhead was maybe 07 when they were a vender at a show I attended. That is before the health issues affected there business. unfortunately They make a great pre wired distributor And I need about 8 more for my projects. Tim
  4. I all ready checked with Jonathan. He didn't see anything against the Aussie law but suggested checking with the other entrants. Is anyone apposed to me running a turbine engine in my racer? Tim
  5. Ray, I only problem I see with that paint job. If you crash off the side of the road you may never be found. LOL
  6. Here is my entry, pile O parts, 1969 GMC Astro 95. Will look quite different once I am done. Think Dakar. LOL
  7. I am looking to do a oil field truck and I need a front drive axle (4x4) for a 1/25 scale semi truck. I remember seeing an aftermarket one years ago but forget who had it. can someone help me out. Also large off road tires for the same build? like the ones below. Tim
  8. I thank you all for the privilege of running an annual Cannonball. It was fun. Now for my entry. I think I have something figured out but just need to pull at least the basic parts together. But one thing it will be BIG, powerful, RHD. Look out road trains and caravaners. Tim
  9. As the creator of the sleeperball. I want to thank all the participants. Who join the CBP. Whether or not you finished an entry. I hope all of you had fun. See ya next year, maybe down unda. Tim
  10. How about a Paris to Dakar style race in Australia. Combining on-road, off road, all out race but not a strait point to point but with check points. As long as the vehicle passes a check point they are still in the race. Being that Fred stated that run at legal speeds you can get from on end to the other in a day and a half. What would an outlaw cannonballer run it in 10 hours? IMO not much of a Cannonball type race. grant it that you have all the critters and road trains to put up with. Tim
  11. I agree with the others. If the 2016 build is going to be the Aussieball or what ever it is up to the individual builder to decide on what vehicle is best suited for the race. then how the vehicle will be built. This being based on the race criteria. You wouldn't want to build a baja bug to race the Daytona 500, then a nascar racecar wouldn't do any good in the baja 1000. You can build what your heart desires. but the year end voters may look at design for said race. Tim
