Introduction: Knex Monstertruck

This is my knex monstertruck that i made a few years ago and was going to post on my old acccount but never got around to it. So now i have some spare time i will post. First off it has suspension (although it is prone to breaking if dropped), working stearing and the bonnet copens to reveal an engine(just for show). The doors can open and a knex man can fit inside but this is mainly model is mainly for show.

These pictures are quite old so some may be missing or be bad photos.

So here are the pics so get making!!

    Epic! I made this and had a derby with my friend and mine only broke once and it was a quick fix. Very sturdy

    AWESOME! That monster truck is very strong, big, and cool! Great job!

    great job. the looks are good, but im even more impressed by the suspension and the creativity and neatness. 5* keep up the good work

    Sorry the pictures are a bit hard to follow but if u look at them carefully then you should be able to make it.

    I had the whole of the chassis built, but when i pushed down on it, the suspension didn't work as the top bit and bottom parts just pushed against each other :/

    Well i havnt had this built fotr well over 2 years so i cant realy check whats happening. Just remake the suspension again and sorry i couldnt help much.

    put a 3-barreled Gatling gun with 2 triangular shields attached on the back & BAM! you have a halo warthog
