    DALE JR
    its been announced today jr will be retiring at the end of the 2017 season.Although I am not a diehard fan always like to watch and his easy going demeanor will be missed on race day.

    I'd research when the twin turbo 475was introduced.That might help to determine if its cummins tan or paccar white.

    although I worked on and started a few kits last year I only managed to get one finished.
    I prefer the classic look for trucks,I decided I needed a contemporary old school custom
    A snap aerodyne was the base for this one

    those things were installed in all sorts of chassis all with a bell housing swap.So a dodge,ford or chev transmission will work depending on what you ate doing with it
  13. mistermodel added a post in a topic KW suspension question   

    amt autocar dump  truck would be a good one.pretty much like a kw 6 rod that Jim mentioned.Any walking beam in most amt kits would do the trick,astro/titan is the nicest.I cant say if it any of those would be period correct if that the look you want.Lots of times these old trucks had mack rear diffs and suspension swapped in because they were pretty much bullet proof.if going for a restored truck in use today a pete air ride or kw 8 bag  would be ok

    since there isn't a brbo anymore why not just have the finished projects in the standard spot?
  15. mistermodel added a post in a topic amt freightliner cab corrections   

    I've made note of 5 different ladder steps,not including the different combinations of under the door steps.The square box door steps on the kit maybe a sever service cab option
