TRUCK TWO-FER: VATERRA AND TAMIYA

DANIEL LEGRAND JOHN­STON, SC

RC Car Action - - READERS’ RIDES -

Daniel’s tow rig is a Vaterra As­cen­der that he lightly mod­i­fied with 2.2 alu­minum wheels, a set of stain­less-steel links, and a cus­tom scale in­te­rior. The teal trailer queen is a heav­ily mod­ded Tamiya CC-01, which has low­ered chas­sis rails and a 3-link setup in the rear to re­pro­duce that bagged shop truck stance. Daniel even hand-built the trailer! For Daniel’s whole life, his dad has owned a C-10 short-bed Chevy, so Daniel is a huge fan of the Pro-line ’66 Chevy shell that both trucks wear.
