    Hey Guys! Remember my question about the offroad dropkick, Well I scrapped the Dropkick part but I finally did it.

    I put a rollbar from the X-mods again and I lifted it and recycled and put the ratchet wheels I had left over and put them on.

    Then I added Sponser stickers to look like a racing truck.

    I Think Its Awesome!

    Tell me what you think.

    Wow...that's different. But cool. Love to see a little mud detailing on it to really finish it off.

    Monster truck Longarm = WIN
    Dirty monster truck Longarm = EPIC WIN

    I like it. It's definitely different than the usual stuff, and in this case, it's a very good thing.

    I like it! Very nice! except the paint, but whatever works for you.

    I would shorten the lift a little bit if I was to do this myself, but cool idea.

    You should find some shocks for him - the flat plastic part holding the wheels looks a little plain and strange.

    Some shocks cut in half lengthwise and glued onto each one would easily fix that.

    I'd say Brawn-X for a name because it fits more than X-Brawn, IMO.
