Custom Trophy Truck – VIDEO [READER’S RIDE]
Juan Turcios built his truck around a custom frame of 1/8-inch thick 5055 aluminum. A friend at TenthScaleLifestyle built a full-metal cage for it. The solid rear axle and and front A-arms are from Metal Concepts R/C. Juan made custom faux reservoirs for the Pro-Line Powerstrokes in front and Axial Yeti shocks in back. It uses Traxxas aluminum knuckles up front and Traxxas aluminum tie rods (with the anodizing stripped off) and Nitro Rustler springs. The wheels are eBay knockoff Method 2.2 wheels with RC4WD Dune 2.2 tires. Power comes courtesy of a Hobby Wing 4700kV motor combo running through an FLM aluminum Traxxas 2WD transmission case and heavy-duty Integy driveshafts. The body is a Pro-Line Ford Raptor Flo-Tek.
