The Speed Shop Hauler looks like a chopped mid-50′s pick-up truck, offering an unique alternative to pop on your short course truck.

Also in the Parma booth is their recently released Rally Xtreme body. The Rally Xtreme is intended to bolt on the Traxxas Rally car, but also fits right on most short course trucks.

With Pactra pulling out of the aerosol paint business, we asked the Parma crew if there was any chance they would step in. Their answer? They wouldn’t get specific, but it sounded like they were working on it.
