Monster Truck Insanity – An Unbelievable Reproduction
Greetings, everybody! This week I’m bringing you an incredible construct. Mike Bufka lately introduced his unbelievable BIGFOOT #18 impressed “Mr. Invoice” r/c monster truck to a Set off King occasion, and I needed to present ya’ll.
The world of scale r/c and strong axle monster vehicles are always mixing collectively which ends up in some really righteous initiatives. That is one in all them.
Mike truly had this to say in regards to the construct –
My dad (Invoice Bufka) labored within the store at BIGFOOT as a machinist/fabricator from 92-97. He helped construct BIGFOOT #’s 11, 12, 14, & 15. He began bringing me round once I was 5 years previous. I fell in love with monster vehicles immediately and by no means ever stopped. I simply assume they’re the good factor on the planet.
I constructed this as Bigfoot 18 duplicate. I spent fairly a little bit of time learning the true truck and speaking with Bryan Bertoletti (then, the chief fabricator at BIGFOOT) in regards to the design and geometry of the true truck.
My aim was to make it as near a 1:10 scale Franklin Mint style-truck as I may whereas nonetheless making it drivable in r/c kind.
The truck runs a Freestyle RC transmission and axles, Holmes Hobbies 4100kv kv Puller Professional with a Citadel Monster X ESC, NSDRC Scaleparts servos entrance and rear, and JConcepts physique, Tribute Wheels wheels, and Firestorm tires (please sponsor me, haha).
The chassis itself is made out of three/16” 0.035” wall metal dom tube.
The 7075 aluminum sway bars and 4 hyperlinks have been made by Mr. Invoice’s Machine Works and all the 3D printed equipment have been made by Brass Ring Fab.
The truck rides on 160mm hpi shocks with 80mm bump stops.
All brackets and tabs are cad designed and laser reduce and the entire chassis is tig welded within the Brass Ring Fab headquarters in Cobra Creek, Colorado.
Thanks for that includes the truck!
Of us, these photos don’t do that truck justice. It’s a murals.
And what makes it cooler is that the artwork isn’t static. Mike drove this rig HARD in competitors and even made a full on Freestyle run!
Thanks for exhibiting this truck off, Mike. Phrase on the road is he has a number of extra replicas cooking in his store, and when completed I’ll make sure to put up ’em right here.
Till subsequent time, preserve it on all 4’s!
