  1. Stretched frame question

    Just remember as well that if you need 24 feet behind the cab take into consideration that you will need about 120 scale inches of frame from the bumper to the back of cab. (BBC measure) and most standard highway trucks are 120"BBC, not counting the sleeper. Brent

    Good lord. Its time for me to give up the paint and glue. I was 3 pictures in before i realized they weren't real and a few more pictures in and I still wasn't sure. Unbelievable work. My hat is off to you sir
  3. Old Manitoulin B-7000

    As far as i recall tri-axles have been around since at least the late 60's (probably before that but i'm getting forgetful). What surprises me is the tridem set up with the 3 axles with no spread. The old tri axles i pulled had about a 10' spread between the lead axle and the tandems at the back. Also the lead axle was a lift axle. The tridem grouping was a more recent style . It is easier on the roads.
  4. AI Truck Models (http://www.aitruckmodels.com/) lists one, a 60" Mercury in their web site. Good Luck, Brent
  5. semi truck pulling

    HeyBuba, I don't know about the pullers in your link, but the truck pull at Notre Dame du Nord has a no motor mod rule. The only real mod is a plate to protect the fuel tanks. if you google Noter Dame du nord you should find the link to Rodeo du Camion. Good luck. Bubba
