Mercedes Benz Race-trucks
the yellow and the red MB Race-trucks are available as highley detailed display-models
or complied with R/C system .
The blue one is my modified version of Tamiya's MB 1838
Tamiya's MB 1838 as Race-truck
fort this conversion I used 2.2" street-truck-tires,
oil-shocks and some weight on the rear to increase traction .
even thought I wanted a race-truck , I don't like the original gearing ,
since it's almost a shame to "bang up" this detailed truck for racing ,
I decided to build a "true race-truck" :
this is my modified version of the TL01-chassis based race-truck from Tamiya .
( the tires and rims I used on this prototype are slightly larger then the ones
shown in the photos below )
basicly a touring-car-chassis with truck-body
since these special-edition tamiya kits are not available in the USA,
contacted me if you would like to get one ,
or just the body-set with decals
