I will post my list of parts sources later but take note that this project will be done with the special collaboration of Jim at http://www.micronitro.net/

I'll wait to have all parts I need to start this project especially the parts from micro Nitro, RB motion and the new but not available yet 1:16 Photoetch parts from futurattraction

What LUC.... where is the pic of the truck with the MONSTER POWER PLANT? I figured you would have at least had a Play shot with the 1/8 scale blown motor in it... :D

Man you have a lot of parts sitting next to your truck build... Just think, you have only just started to break the surface on the scale nuts and bolts you will be needing from Scale Hardware and RB Motion! LOL.... I would cringe to think what I have just for my Camaro build... Thank goodness I didn't add up what I have spent on the project either, because I would be very depressed... LOL :lol:

thanks baddgass and Henry,

Bart... for the 1:8 play shot, I will do for sure, but when the project will have more work on it (fire wall removed for example ) :D

And for the parts, I went into many projects before having all the parts, and for this one, I really want to have every part before building the frame to be sure every thing is in the best place and in the good size...

Any ways, I'm not in a hurry, I have another truck to go to work... :lol:

My engine will be made with the sp├ęcial participation of Jim littiken, I think everybody knows I'm but here is his site address

http://www.micronitro.net/

Jim can make custom parts and he understands what you want but these parts are pieces of art a take a lot of time to build so you can expect them to be a bit expensive but they worth every dollar they cost and even more.

I will start this project when my motor will be shipped back to me from micro nitro (it can take a month) I will have to be patient for

this one.

I Have a picture of my valves covers, it will be a V10 with 2 cam shaft in each head drove by uncoverd pulleys.

I agree with semijoe, this is intense. Please chop the top. Looking forward to more.

Reminds me a little of an Intl Harvester pickup I saw in RatRod magazine built by Kevin Biggs. He calls it The Binder.

I could only find this short video. There was no picture of the pickup on the RatRod magazine website. The magazine says "He built an abomination known as the Binder...........a 1935 International Harvester C35 nightmare."
