    Ok folks, I'm at RCX with TeamGoNads, DDM and VSModelsport. I'll be posting pics from the TGN booth, the HPI booth and the VSModelpsort booth.

    Also, check out RCXLive for a live video feed.

    Hi USEBaja5, did you have to cut the shell to mount that STX body on the Monster Truck ? I'm looking into getting that shell for my truck with the ST tires.
    Thank you.

    The Stadium Truck body is a one-off custom Carbon Fiber body that was made by Rhino Racing for me. There is nothing available that even comes close to fitting the Baja. Believe me, I looked before contacting Danny. Danny did an awesome job on it, and then my painter finished it up with the custom graphics and clear coat.

    We had about 25 people waiting at 9:00 Saturday morning to see what was under the blanket. I had the Baja on the stand, and the body under a blanket. I forgot there was extended body mounts showing, so a few people noticed, and told the magazine guys and HPI. At 9:00 I unwrapped it and heard - OHHH NOOO----- the 5T is here.

    We must have heard, OH SHIT!!!! about 5,000 times as people came around the corner. Danny was the king of the show once everyone knew who he was.

    TGN will post some better pics in the next few days. Everyone loved that one. Some Japanese collector tried to buy all the show trucks. If the Trophy Truck was ready to run, I would have sold it a few times. I didn't have the radio gear installed though.

    Spotted at RCX.

    CY motor

    Knockoff of a FG Sportsline car

    RTR with radio est. price $699 built painted and ready to go go go.... :eek:

    Company was said to be started by a former Smartech sales manager it looks exactly like a carson / smartech. The build quality of the car is fantastic looks even better then smartech, servos are GWS 777.

    On road version the Body and radio is where they fell short (for now), 27MHz AM Futaba knock off china radio and a non lexan white plastic painted / decal Ford GT
    LOVE the Ford GT shape just wish it was lexan and more detail it is said to be a licensed body.


    Off road Buggy looks just like a Smartech....

    US importer is set

    I asked Tigger to get some shots of the on-road and off-road versions with the body on and off.

    I was loading the car, and some California guy offered to buy the Stadium Truck. He said he wanted the biggest baddest truck. Once we got closer to actually selling it, he kept changing the deal. Like wanting the Trevor Simpson motor installed at the show. He said he had the cash in his pocket, but we never saw it. Danny from Rhino Racing was talking to him mostly when I wasn't there. If he was serious, I would have thrown in a new radio and installed one of the Dave's Motors for him.

    Vernon, everything is for sale, just depends on how much. I'll probably be selling Full kits in a few weeks.

    That is the 2 door model. You need a 4 door for the Baja. Thats why I had to stretch it.

    The Hummer-truck on the photos, did you have to move the body back to make the DDM-pipe fit under there?

    Hi Todd, thank you for the picture.
    I'm just wondering if you have to trim the shell near the rear of the front wheels for steering clearance. That was my only concern. I was thinking of using that shell with ST wheels. Perhap, I won't have to trim the shell.
