Such an awesome build!

Very nice truck!

Thanks!

This gets more amazing every time I look at it. Great work.

Thank you so much!


looks nice.

Thanks!



Okey... Something to update. Now i'm feeling strong to finnish this build::2thumbs

Log carriage or bed for log trucking. I made couple of c-channel frames to lift log carriage higher, that rear tires don't rub.
Also after several test runs, decided to go bigger battery, and the rear frame rails are good place to hide battery.
Simple hinge on back to help battery change.

Long nails and some silver soldering.

Then test fit with logs. Truck with full load is swinging realisticly... Center of weight is so high :laugh: That i cant wait to hit on log trucking on bad roads.

Also founded new tires for Kraz. Wheels are bit too big for scale, but new tires are bullseye :cool:
Some how i have missed these Cross RC tires... These are perfect for Kraz.

On my Instagram: bishops_rc_crusade is small videos to see how wires secures the logs.

If some thing i would do diffenrent now, mayby little bit less of rust.. :hmmm: And there is always room for more little details. Also might update log crane later, it needs to desing different crane legs. Also i have plans to make trailer for this and mayby different bed for other jobs.


Soon i will post some outdoor pics with logs. And soon as weather warms little bit i will make video of it.

Looks very good! Not sure how I miss this build, being all metal is awesome! Can't wait for a new video of it hauling some logs and see how it moves when loaded!
