OF THE MONTH
TONKA HEAVY METAL 8X8
KEN SU THERLAND ›› FLORENCE, OR
At the heart of this build is a 1960s-era Tonka truck cab, which Ken
added onto for nearly a year until he ended up with the four-foot-long,
all-metal beast you see here. ;e entire body (aside from that vintage
lower cab section) is fabbed from aluminum and held together with
more than 200 aluminum rivets. ;at Tonka cab had to be widened
by 90mm to fit the NitroRCX 8X8 chassis. It rolls on eight 3.8-inch
Pro-Line Mashers, it’s powered by four brushed motors and
steered by two 277 oz. servos, and it will climb stairs (and most
anything else!) all day long.
