Becca's Mini-T gets a new pair of shoes

While repairing the trucks from the weekend bashing, I replaced the tires on my daughter's Mini-T. We put on a set of 4 Pro-Line Dirt Hawgs (old style) and it now looks as tough as the RC18MT - except for the pink and purple paint scheme. And with the new dual slipper clutch and big block engine, it can keep up with the Associated mini-monster truck on just about any terrain. The heavier tires slow it down just a bit, but the increased traction makes driving it much more fun. Until you forget to back off on the steering servo rate and flip it in a turn.

This was my first painted Lexan body and I think it turned out pretty good. My daughter chose the color scheme. The flames on the side were hand done by masking. I have some new bodies to paint as soon as the rains go away and the humidity drops a bit. The black Hummer body for the T-Maxx to match the real one that I drive should be awesome.
