Here is one of my "newer"hobbies,R/C trucks.
The black & white 1972 Chevy truck is a 2012 Traxxas Stampede VXL 4x4 ,on a LIPO battery this truck goes 60 mph!!!!!!It is a hand full to drive and seems, so-far to be bullet-proof!The 1972 Cheyanne is a duplicate of my late grandpa's truck.
The blue and silver truck was the first truck I ever got ,way back in 1990 from HARMON'S HOBBY SHOP .
It is a 1990 Traxxas Sledgehammer Chevy 2wd, this is a really nice truck, since I restored it last year.As a kid I didn't do it any favors and tore it up!So as an adult... :P ,I had the chance to fix it,so off to e-bay to hunt for month's on end for New Old Stock parts for it.
This particular version of the "Sledgehammer" was the first,you can tell them by the all white plastic chassis(they were brittle and later changed to stronger black plastic)and gold aluminum braces.
This truck is only used on pavement and not "bashed" like the other one!
BTW ,I painted both Lexan bodies myself.
