I'd love to know what you guys think, custom made from the ground up, this is NOT a Patriot!!! 35" Super Swampers, KS nitrogen shocks, dual chain drive, and rear steering at 9 feet long, 6 1/2 feet wide and 7 feet tall...
Check it out!

You'd be surprised at what my total was after completing the truck, but to be sure, it was more about the hours put into it than anything else. It took about 2 years to build and cost about 1/3 the current price of a Patriot...and this is far superior to what Patriot offers as this truck has a 6 cylinder Chevy engine instead of a 4 cylinder Honda, nitrogen instead of coil shocks...I could go on and on. My advice is if you've got the know how, build your own!
It has a 5 point racing seat and harness, it's a little tight getting in and out but it's not uncomfortable by any means. This was intended for my son, but until he's old enough to reach the pedals, I'm going to enjoy it while I can!
The only pics I have on the computer of it being built are of the body, I can scan some of the older photos I have and post them at a later time.
What kind of axles are in there? I see they were re-centered, kinda looked like D60s, but I couldn't get a good look. Christian
