Twin Hammers new body and accessories

I wanted to make my Twin Hammers more unique so I started by replacing the standard plastic body with a set of aluminium body panels.

I decided to paint the panels in a basic desert camo scheme of sand and earth.

Some decals were applied to the side panels to add a bit of detail.

I also replaced the vehicle race number plates on the back of the vehicle with recovery boards. These are also aluminium and were painted desert yellow.

To complete the new look I ordered a pack of rock crawler accessories from eBay and strapped some gear to the roof and recovery boards with bungee chords .

More Monster Truck Fun!

My repair to my monster trucks manifold was not good enough and it simply became detached again. This time I used permanent threadlock to seal the nuts to the manifold holding it in place. The only way you are supposed to be able to get threadlock off is with a heat gun meaning the engine vibrations will not loosen it.



I took the truck out for a good run along the beach which was a great test of its off road capabilities. Unfortunately I cracked an exhaust coupling on my second tank of fuel!
