We’d like to congratulate Chad on his outstanding Monster Cross performance with one of the best looking trucks out there. The build is fantastic and the parts used drips quality. Here’s what Chad had to say about his Macho Truck build.

“Macho Man” truck build was inspired by a special, one-off, Bigfoot paint scheme used to promote World Championship Wrestling (WCW) in the mid-90s. The sunglasses and cowboy hat are fastened to the Jconcepts ’93 Ford F-250 body by a trick two-piece lexan mount held down by neodymium magnets. The tassels were cut to length and attached to the inside of the body using servo tape. Special thanks to Morris Aschkenas for constructing and painting the body, as well as Mike Blazavich for the custom decals. The Truck is based on the Tamiya Clod Buster and features the latest edition of the Team Juice Cube chassis. Topping off the line chassis build are hi-grade components including Hesse Machine knuckles, Thunder Tech Racing CVD/Straight axles, and Yokomo X33 shocks. To provide the best possible performance, the truck has been outfitted with JConcepts Renegades tires in gold compound.”
