You just have to see this.

Post by sidewinder »

Edit:
I wasn't quite sure where to put this, I was looking at ebay for 1/4 scale stuff and I saw an add that linked me to this: http://www.usatruck.nl/index.htm It's a 1/4 scale semi :shock: ...14.8ft long, 3ft high and 1.8ft wide, built by a guy in the Netherlands. It will carry three people on the trailer, and he has now adapted it to hold a jet engine like our jet dragsters.:twisted:

I just tried the link at the bottom of his page, it's not in English, but it's worth the click. ----------->holy crap, click this!

Aint it though...that makes me want to build something like that soooo bad. I mean sure, it would cost a fortune, and I don't know where I'd store it, but damn it, I really want one.

It's cool and all, but where could you drive it? What could you transport it in?

Short of taking your 1/4 Scale cars to the track in style, I don't get it. Unless there is a whole lot of paved private area with no cars that you can play on there?

I'll bet you could go around to race tracks, rodeos, fairs, etc. and charge an appearance fee. Short of that you could move to farm country (we have plenty of houses available recently) and use (some) tractor paths, or smooth fields.

See lots of room(ok, it's not my place but it takes the cops an hour to show :lol: ):
