    How did you handle the electric clutch on the supercharger?

    It's a Monogram kit.  Revell also makes one that comes with Bass Boat.  There is one of each on EBAY.  Use "1/24 Ramcharger" and "1/25 Ramcharger" in search engine to find them.  There is idiots that try to get over $100 Buy it Now, but bidding usually takes them to about $35 including shipping.  Good Luck!

    Mike B- you might check out pro line for a RC body. Ive got one on my axial ax10. It might be too big of a scale for your needs though

    last I checked, not in stock, anywhere local, internet search brought up nothing worth shipping, still want one, good news bout proline, if they have the mold still, they will make them for ya, better to have a big order though, say 20-30, just to keep the costs down.

    I would love to see a 1/24 or 1/25 scale 80's Dodge Power Ram to build!!!  Never seen one anywhere....big gap in production I say!

    Ill check with the local hobby place tomorrow and see if they still have any. I picked mine up about 2 years ago with intentions of making a scale rig. For body reference size heres a pic of mine. I still need to get the body post for it.

    should throw some scale wheels and tires on it. ;D

      only reason I like the axial is the scale look, , but then the tamiya models take the cake, I like the losi due to the worm drive diffs, (only on the micro and 10:1 scale), means no special speed controller needed, just a good torquey motor.

    For some members rigs the tires and wheels could be scale lol. Ive thought about buying one of the scx10 from axial to do the scale build. They have a full frame and are more "realistic" than the ax10 with its 3 link and ridiculous flex. Im running a 55t motor and forget what kind of speed controller, buts it got enough torque to pull the control arm out of the rear axle when in a bind.  I agree on the tamiya stuff, those are really nice, and even have leaf springs. Sorry to the OP on the hi jack. Nice job on the replica and the dirty windshield is pretty awesome.
