That's a good view to see how crazy short the front is. This causes the angle from front to the top of the cab to be much steeper thus giving it the odd proportions that bother me.

the Ecuador build:
The rear tires are 40" tall max, the fronts 33s at best.
That total width number is only at the rear(including the wheel shrouds), since they stuck with a standard dually rear axle width.
The front track was left close to the original truck and is way too narrow... if they had lengthened the a-arms and widened the track a foot it would look way more correct.
Also the total vehicle length at 17' isn't whats skewing the dimensions and making the front end look short... it's because the height of the cockpit they were forced with from not altering the truck frame rails out wider to set the interior cockpit floor down in between them properly. That would have lowered their seating and let them get the correct slope to the front, making it "look" slimmer and longer there. You can see the seat side bolsters at the shoulder set completely above the vehicle sides where the canopy stars, so if the cockpit was 9+ inches (basically the height of the truck frame they built on top of) set down it would help the whole car dimensions.

A lot of what they did I am trying to help you avoid from the get go, since you're also starting with a truck frame.

It was a decent first attempt by them using what was easily available, and they learned a ton... as I recall they went on to build a much more correct vehicle for some middle eastern client from the publicity they received on this first build.

on your emissions question... just get an ECU and tranny from the auto version of your truck and you will be good to go.

Here is an example of skewing taken a little to far on a Justice League model/toy.

Hey sly and THEMAN,
What do you think of this model as compared to the photo-images of the real Justice League batmobile? vertigo

Was looking at an old posting of a comparison of 1/25 models of a DOJ batmobile and two pickup trucks. vertigo

the big rc 1:10 is a decent one to go off of... I have that as well, compared it to the real car measurements.

I think you might be getting hung up on the shape of the truck compared to the b-mobile... there is no comparison there. You need to just think of the truck as the raw materials and cut and reshape the frame to something more like the corvette c5/c6 chassis and add the trophy truck/batmobile tubular chassis elements to that base. You will not get the results you want building on top of the existing truck frame, and that was Ecuador-mobile's starting mistake.

Thanks for all the information and keen observations.

I know they say the scale is 1/10 but it appears to be really 1/12.

It appears to me from my measurements if one did a build at a scale up of 1:10 that would equal 83.3% and a wheelbase of 150 inches.

Some other scale up I calculated:
1:10.2 = 85 %
1:10.3 = 85.8 %
1:10.4 = 86.6 %
1:10.5 = 87.5 %
1:10.6 = 88.3 %
1:10.7 = 89 %
1:10.8 = 90 %
