HPI WHEELIE KING CRAWLER

STEVE GLASBERGEN TSAWWASSEN, BC, CANADA

RC Car Action - - READERS’ RIDES -

Here’s one you don’t see ev­ery day: HPI’S wheel­iepop­ping mon­ster truck turned into a rock­crawl­ing tube-frame buggy. The tube chas­sis it­self is from In­t­egy, while power comes cour­tesy of a 55-turn mo­tor and Hob­by­wing speed con­trol, with the drag brake hid­den un­der the vented hood panel. All the body pan­els and the skid­plates are hand-built. Steve chose a Level 3 RC low-cg mo­tor mount and Ax­ial 2.2 Rock Lizard tires. The wheel­base has been stretched from the stock 9.4 to 13 inches, giv­ing it ex­cel­lent climb­ing per­for­mance.
