    This is my family's reaction when I tell them I'm actually going to finish a model.

    I don't think you have anything to worry about as far as being pushed around in your first two rides.:lol:

    You know it V.B. They're brand new and for some reason, they haven't governed the engines yet. Went through the radar they have set up before a long hill doing 47kmh empty and 43kmh loaded(234 tons). A mans gotta know his limitations. The 200 ton trucks only do 35 but the hot rods(150 tons) do 67!! Two years ago, buddy called me on the radio and told me that my truck was the first one he'd ever seen get all four wheels in the air.

    Photos from the mine while I'm waiting for the paint to dry.
    002 (2).jpg 1500(150 ton) and 730(200 ton) trucks.
    111.jpg 4000 shovel scaling the wall, bucket holds about 35 tons.
    foggy1.jpg Foggy. A little more fog and the seat goes to full recline and it's nap time. \\:D/ 007.jpg 008.jpg 018.jpg Peace River Coal Yacht Club.

    Neat set of pics !. Interesting to note that the 4000 'scaling the wall' has the bucket facing the 'normal' way.... I thought the buckets were reversed for that kinda operation or is it generally the bigger machines do that ?

    Whatever, keep' em coming and if you can include any of your 'rallycross' pics even better :thumbright:
