    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.

    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.

    Anyone know where I can get a front drive axle for a 1/25 scale semi?
    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
