Looks like I'll be buying a 3rd Slamvan, I rarely ever buy 2 of the same vehicle let alone 3!

For those that don’t catch the reference, the Arena War version is an homage to Stubby Bob from Roadkill Garage. A 1950 Ford F-6 tipper that had 50 inches chopped out of its wheelbase and a supercharged Chevrolet big block installed just behind the cabin to make it a wheelstander. 

It's a bag of sh*t in every single Arena event though.

Yea. They did a fairly decent job making almost every car useful, but the Slamvan is severely underpowered. Should've got grenade launchers or maybe some kind of weapon that could have utilized it's wheelying capability.

I bought a second Slamvan, and also changed up my original one with more of a hot rod look. My plan was to change liveries, but I ended up keeping the scallops because they look so good. Here's the hot rod.

So a performance upgraded(no turbo on mine though) Apocalypse Slamvan can pull off insanely long wheelies if you do it right. I managed to wheelie my Stubby Bob all the way from one end of the shorter northeast facing runway at LSIA to the other. It's tricky to do it though, because the slightest mistake and it will end up either falling back down really quickly, turning and going off the runway, which will cut the wheelie short and likely cause a rollover, or the back end will snag the ground and make it flip forwards. It's pretty good fun no matter what happens though.

Sorry for double posting, but I got some pictures of my Stubby Bob. They're not the clearest pictures of the truck itself since they're all sunset and night pictures, but the first one turned out especially cool I think.

While looking for inspiration for my Slamvan I noticed that many old cars (mostly pick ups from 50s and 60s) had white trim instead of usual chrome. Does anyone know why?

To be honest I kinda like the idea. Slamvan Custom allows you to paint trim, so why not use this?

I'd guess it's just because pickup trucks have always been more utilitarian, while chrome is more of a style thing, so trucks that are meant for work didn't really need chrome. It could also be that chrome was an option on vehicles back then, and it would be cheaper to get it with just painted trim rather than chrome trim.

@Darekl92, Yeah, as @79'Blazer4x4 said, chrome was mostly just an added cost, and one that would not work well with the rough use of a farm or fleet truck. It wasn't just trucks, though, as cars with taxi and police package options often omit chrome for economy reasons. I've always preferred chrome - it hurts me to see so many people strip it off of old cars - but the original chromeless look is an exemption, because that kind of authenticity is something to admire.

OK, so something like this?

Should it be matte or normal white?

Livery, color, exhaust, interior and wheels are not final yet. Just messing aroud. I think I will get rid of rust because rusty body looks bad with clean bumpers.

Yeah, I don't like all matte black but painted bumpers are badass if you go for non-classic look.

Third wheel here, I long for the day matte black paint, black wheels & bolt-on fenders join lambo doors, spinners & gradient paint jobs in car hell.

For me painting bumpers is basically a hit or miss, they sometimes look good but most of them look awful. I am not really a fan of restomod or pro touring, the swaps and the new parts are cool and improve performance but 9/10 times these guys destroy the design. Is really hard to see a restomod that actually looks good. 

 

But i guess you wont take my oppinion much into account since i am a fan of lowriders, most people dont like them and i can understand why, some of them looks ridiculous, but what i really like about them is the stock look with almost perfect execution.

P.s. my cat looks just like the one in your picture 

 

@IceDree They can go and take negative camber with them.

OK, I'm so done with this.

It's too low for a classic pickup so white trim isn't right and in-game chrome is too bright when you compare it with non-Benny Slamvan.

Tried with rust but it doesn't look right because secondary color has no rusty textures so it looks out of place. Interior is too good for a ratrod anyway.

Nearly every livery is bugged near the bed, probably wrong mapping or something... argh. Windows netting is annoying because it goes over the glass instead of replacing it so it doesn't make sense either.

After testing dozens and dozens of setups went for track ready.

I think it goes well with the rest.

Inb4 purists about Hustler's wheels. I wanted something with low profile because I couldn't stand incorrectly mirrored tracks.

Well that's because is pretty much entirely useless in all situations lol. 

 

I mean I love it, great tribute to Stubby Bob, but even I don't drive it that much.

Is there any way you can put custom rims on this in Online? I’d love it with the Smoothie or Rod Me Up rims.

There is a merge glitch to put Benny's mods on other cars, but you'd have to check out Se7ensins forum for the method.
