JIMMY LOUIS LOS AN­GE­LES, CA

RC Car Action - - CONTENTS -

Jimmy cred­its Josh Zim­mer­man from Freestyle RC for help­ing him fi­nally get a true cage-chas­sis mon­ster truck. The trans­mis­sion and axle hous­ings are also from Freestyle. The axle in­nards, plus the diffs and cen­ter shafts, are sal­vaged from a Traxxas Revo. The wheels are Jcon­cepts Trib­utes wrapped in Firestorm blue com­pound tires. A Cas­tle Creations 3800Kv mo­tor and Mamba Max speed con­trol pro­vide the power, while re­bound-ad­justable HPI Sav­age shocks from In­t­egy soak up the jump land­ings. The look for Franken­stein starts with Pro-line’s Chevy Crew Cab body, with a cus­tom wrap de­signed by Jimmy him­self, plus some 3D-printed ac­ces­sories like the neck bolts and blade switch on the bed. For a bit of hu­mor, Jimmy added a wig and an ESS-ONE Plus sound unit with mon­stertruck sounds, plus a record­ing of Gene Wilder from Young Franken­stein yelling, “It’s ali­i­i­ive!”
