Not staying lexan, I have a gravedigger plug that was custom made for the truck. Just need to get a mold made off it now.

Funky:

what this truck really needs is a reverse transmission. that's one thing that's on my many to do list for this truck.

will try to remember to shoot a couple tonight. It is oem, but its the only truck Jeff built with a reverse unit. Pretty slick and easy to replicate.

On the new era truck I have with the conley in it, it has special hubs on the axles with one way bearings. That way the wheels can move at separate rates.

Mike:

I think im missing something here, I see 4 gears from the pics. but I think one needs at least 5 gears to have reverse. please see my pic below. where is the 5th gear?

thanks

4 Gears. pinion and drive gear. Then there are two gears in the middle that are always in contact with each other. The arm simply selects which gear the pinion touches.

they are the same since new era splashed the qrs body. But I still think these don't look right on the truck. Look at the QRS monster truck. He used a stadium body and extended the cab on it to make it look right.
