I've always been a fan of the Bigfoot Monster trucks, and always wanted to build an RC version of this iconic truck....the Lexan offerings never quite appealed to me, so I decided to go with a hardbody Ford......

Here's what I started with:

These are Jconcepts Rangers 2.2 tires and Midwest 2.2 wheels, they replicate the old school monster truck tires that the early "BIGFOOT" trucks used to run....

Tamiya F350 body in all its unpainted glory ��

Starlord wants shotgun, but he’ll be driving something else....

Here she is painted with Tamiya Metallic Blue.

Added the Bigfoot one decals from the Traxxas Bigfoot body..

Shortened the rear links a bit to match the wheelbase a bit better, now waiting on more LEDs to complete the light bar...

Need to paint the interior and add the driver...

And I have a set of magnetic body mounts coming in the mail...

Excellent! Looks like a proper Monster Truck. Well done! You need some beat up RC's to run over and jump on now...

So after making sure that the light kit worked, I needed to button up the interior....

i had my daughter help me with the dashboard drawing the gauges and components, I decided that the passenger side was a bit empty, so I decided to enlist a clay Minion figurine that my daughter made as my passenger....

Also added a rear magnetic mounting kit from boom racing..
