Drag Truck

Postby allen_okc » Thu Jun 16, 2011 6:19 am

I would just like to introduce myself - my name is Allen from oklahoma city.

I've custom built a kenworth drag truck modeled from the ban dag bandit...

using parts from a very old tamiya "Brutus" , thats pot metal suspension and custom building the pan from a door panel of a kenworth truck and hand molding the body and fiberglassing it, custom painting with hand lettering...

the heavy truck pulled 55mph in 132 feet...

its being reworked just to play with now...
