Monster Truck Insanity – Kings of Crunch and Drag Vehicles
Greetings gang, right this moment I come to you with a hybrid column. A bit of little bit of monster vans, somewhat little bit of drag vehicles.
I’m very caught up within the no-prep drag scene that’s exploded. Final 12 months I constructed a Traxxas drag Bandit/Slash, however I’ve had eyes on the candy Losi 22S ever because it was introduced earlier this 12 months (after which promptly sold-out and backordered for all the spring).
Now, what I do with this automotive goes to be lined quickly on BSRC. And this IS the monster truck column anyhow, in any case….so let’s inject some monster truck discuss into it, mmmkay?
Whereas I used to be on the passion store, I noticed that they stocked a plethora of Greenlight Collectibles “Kings of Crunch”. Oh mama.
For the previous couple of years I’ve been conscious of those amazingly detailed die-cast old-fashioned monster vans, however had by no means taken half in choosing any up as a result of I’d by no means seen them in particular person.
Ugh take a look at this Nitemare II and Stomper Bully. LOOK AT THEM! A lot old-fashioned goodness. I needed to have them.
I used to gather monster truck diecasts by the early 2000’s. Whether or not it was Matchbox Superchargers from the 1980’s, Scorching Wheels Champions from the 1990’s or Monster Jam vans from the early aughts, I collected a bunch. I went chilly turkey someday within the mid 2000’s, although. It’s why I didn’t hunt down the Greenlight vans.
Nicely, I lastly broke. These stunning vans are so detailed, I couldn’t resist. I truly plan to construct an old style fairgrounds diorama for show within the workplace, full with grime, crush vehicles…the entire 9. Search for that venture write-up someday this summer season.
Till subsequent time, hold it on all 4’s!
