a talk to the guys up at tdr to mod me a allison v-12 kit and transmission

my project is to mate the allison to a tamiya 3-speed trannmision

there was a lot of cutting . but it mated very sweet!

i have a couple of builds coming up useing this engine/transmssion combo

the transmisson if noticed has a castle 9000kv motor attached to it

the trasmission will fit lower in the chissis when im done. i still have more parts to add on the engine

once i install in the truck i will putthe allison transmission cover on.

the truck it self is 32 inches long, will have semi suspension , lowered with 72mm tires
pure racing for this baby

transmission really had to be spot on for the drive shaft to come though. i added a backer plate for the resin transmission and added some tubing for screws

I don't know much about the semi scaler world, but I do know what I like. This.

Gorgeous work Joe. You've got my vote for ROTM.

i took out the knight hauler stuff

but i kept the tanks,went with the king steps. i had to tone down the chrome with some matt black

i made a side mount radiator for kooling this beast down. i will add plumbing later

So cool, I love the heavily modified rigs.
I've been dying to try and recreate Tyrone Malone's Bandag Bandit. I plan on using all of my Bullhead parts to get started.... this build is inspirational for sure!!!
