What better way to start off a first blog post than with some awesome pictures!
I've been laying pretty low around the forums over the last few weeks, mainly because final exams are approaching but also because I've been working on a brand new vehicle for Rigs of Rods. I've built a 'Rock Bouncer' style rig, popularized by wheelers in the South-East US like Tim Cameron and his legendary 'Fat Girl' buggy. The design itself is completely original adopting specs and measurments from the real-life 'Showtime' buggy to give a nice, realistic feel.
Desperado is powered by a supercharged 350 Chevy engine, coupled to a built turbo 350 transmission and an Atlas 4.3 transfer case. Mounted to two 14 bolt axles are a set of custom beadlock rims wrapped up in 44" BFG Krawlers.
