MIPride - Chris Malone, Bedforshire, UK!

"Chris Malone’s heavily modified Tamiya Wild Dagger (Bedfordshire, United Kingdom)

A Tamiya Wild Dagger is the base of this highly customized truck. Actually, there is little Dagger left. Chris calls his creation, "Cold Fusion", and it is built as a racer. His goal was to make it able to hang with any other MT out on the track. It has been in the works and getting refined for about 3 years and he tells us that he is really pleased with how it has turned out.
