Brilliantly designed and artfully rendered in the basic Army Colors; Sand Brown, Olive Drab, Black and Forest Green. Decals also represent the patriotic feelings of the truck owner i.e.. (American Flags, Eagle red white and blue pinstripes, and a bold statement of the American Lifestyle 'Go for the Gold').
This truck was the third to be purchased and the fourth to be completed. The only modifications made to the vehicle were the paint and decals. This truck was designated as a popper/blocker.
From the outcome of past games, I can say that I excel in blocking and flipping opponents vehicles while maintaining control and operability of my own RC. As far as popping is concerned, I'm not bad, but there is definitely room for vast improvement.
As of this date, the only damage incurred to my vehicle has been the loss of the front grill work, and minor scrapes in the paint. This is mostly due to major kicks from opponent's boots when they attempt to free their trucks from the death grasp I have put on them during our combat/game.
I was the first to modify my truck. I originally had all these grandiose plans, then settled for command parts lying around the house. This translated to numerous backplane brackets removed from the expansion slots of PC cases. I drilled holes in the front bumper and attached the slot covers using their premade screw notch. I then bent the brackets slightly to aim fully forward. It was this modification that kept me undefeated until that fateful day. The day when Weird showed up with an improvement on my design. Rounded skewers that hug the ball and allow him to turn and maintain control of the ball. I still won that day, but it would be the last time I could be undefeated. As he finally learned to control his new weapon, my simple bracket became as antiquated as the typewriter.
Epilogue: Last match I experimented with two PC slot covers taped together in a U-shape. It looked like a dung beetle. The results were promising.
QUOTE: Drive to live... live to drive! (VROOM)
FAVORITE PLAY: Half court goals where you give the ball a good BONK and send it through the other goal, faster than any truck could hope to catch up to.
MODIFICATIONS: State of the art $3.49 fluorescent pink PVC boomerang. Cradles ball and cripples opponents.
FUTURE PLANS: Classified.
I purchased my truck last - I waited until I could be reasonably assured that Truck Soccer was "fun." I've since cut off the rollbars, and plan to add some steel ones, sort of flipped over to make a nice nestling area for the ball. Sure, sure, first thing tomorrow.
