USA 1 Nitro Crusher

Post by Jam Racing 1 on Wed Apr 19, 2017 3:18 pm

This is my very first venture into the nitro side of the hobby, I bought it new from Tower Hobbies back in about 1991 and bashed it a good long time, raced it some at a couple of the Offroad Jamborees in sonoma county back when there was a place to play with it...

It sat on blocks on my shelf for 15 years or so until I decided it was time to show her some love.....







Let the disassembly and cleaning begin....







I built a new front shock tower for it instead of the fiberglass one I made many years ago.... you can see it is almost 2 times thicker and should be much sturdier....





we also made a new brace for the rear of the truck out of some aluminum plate we had.... this will not allow any rear flex at all....





I also painted up a fresh body for the old girl to celebrate her rebirth, it is difficult to get parts for this truck so it is relegated to show and occasional runs for show, no more bashing for this one ever...








Hope you enjoy looking at this old rig as much as I enjoy owning a piece of R/C History.....
