It should be really clear by now… but man do I love vintage off-road trucks! When it came time to build a Red Cat Gen8 Pack, I picked up a @prolineracing Chevy Colorado ZR2 body with some class 1 Proline BFGoodrich mud-terrain tires in Predator compound.
With some help from @timp_rc for the decals, I was able to get the Larry Ragland tribute look I wanted from the 90s with the classic purple and white Chevy paint scheme! The Gen8 Pack offers a ton of ground clearance with the portal axles and an adjustable wheelbase without having to use different links. To get the body to fit, I shortened the frame rails about an inch and used the bumper mount for the body posts to fit horizontally. Out of the box this rig crawls great, is easy to work on, and I can’t wait to get some more trigger time with it!

The @redcatracing Pre-Assembled Chassis Kit is also great at carving berms 🤙🏼🔥@prolineracing ———————— 📍Custom Builds & Slowmo ———————— #rccar #rc #prolineracing #redcatracing #gen8 #gen8pack #redcatnation #wolfpack #chevy #colorado #zr2 #vintageoffroad #rockcrawling #scaler #chevycoloradozr2 #bfgoodrich #offroad #slowmotion #sunset #goldenhour
