Thanks for the comments guys, purple it is.


Here is a few pics from the LHS swap meet last weekend. Had to take it out and show everyone what I have been up to.

Some of the "stuff" I was trying to get rid of. Most of it is back in the rc room now. :(

Some new parts that came. The purple parts here are some of the hardest to find.

I wish I had an update, but Its sitting still at the moment. Im trying to figure out an idea for a tank, but I just can't decide on what to do. Plus, I just got parts done for another build I started a while back and I have been finishing that up. I am making progress on my purple HCR emaxx parts collection

This is the only tank worthy of the truck. You can find silver caps too. I'd buff off the "rd logics" logo, but i'd leave the skull.

silver tank

For the time being Im going to mount a stock tank to it, but I do have big plans of a project for a tank that includes a custom tank with purple glass windows

Got some more parts. Didn't think I wold ever find these. I didn't really, a friend and member of the forum found them at his LHS and bought them for me. Big thanks goes out to him. :applause:







Now all I need is a purple transmission case and it will be 100% the colors I have planned

Your builds are VERY flashy!

Eye candy for sure. Very nice!

Can I ask why it will never be run though? Seems a shame to put so much into a truck that will never see any action.

Either way, it's a very cool looking truck!

Thanks Wheelman. I really don't like running as much as I do building and finding rare parts. It takes forever to find the HCR parts, find them in the color and shade that you want, and then get them new or like new. The thought of this thing getting a scratch on it would drive me crazy. Plus this is nitro and I like going fast when I do run a truck, LOL. I don't run nitro at all anymore, only electric.

To the build though, I have found another part to go on it. I will post a picture later of some new stuff for it. It is getting really close to being done.

Understandable! I have to admit that I might actually have more fun building R/C's than running them. Its VERY close though! I agree, there is just something to finding the parts little by little and building a truck from the ground up. Good stuff!

can't wait to see it finished, like I said its a very flashy truck. That purple is something kind of rare.

That cooling head is blingin'!!! Very cool man

Hey I'm sure you've already seen them, but just in case you haven't, Bosox06 has some of those purple arm extenders on the bay. I think you told me those are pretty hard to come by?...and they're in your color too.

Maybe you already have plenty of them. Just figured I'd mention it.

Well this build has been slow going to say the least. Partly my fault because I'm way too picky, but thats just me. The slowness has been because of searching for parts in the right colors.
I have always wanted a purple trans for this, but they are very hard to find. A week ago I found one. It wasn't HCR, but I couldn't resist it and bought it.


The very next day I found this.


Never fails I guess, but at least I have what I wanted.

Building the trans now. OTB and HCR gears.






TI spur gear with one of my adjuster nuts and sprongs.



Stainless Cup or black?




I don't have the breaks setup, but this is how it will look.
