    If you want a project that takes a lot of work and time may I suggest I 3D printed body! They take for ever to get straight and smooth for paint. Ther a sanding nightmare!
    This body is from MFab and has a lot of detail and some cool features.
    But be warned they come in a bunch of parts and everyone needs work.
    I had mine assembled in a afternoon andsitiing on my modified frame. I also have been sanding for a week. 22770623_1999390510276554_3730265056177188944_o.jpg IMG_8534.JPG

    The frame looks like no other due to the cantilever rear suspension and the trick servo mount. I also used SSD transmission and there Axial PRO II axles. The drive shafts are TFL Racing pieces. IMG_8497.JPG

    The body tilts in the back and I need to build body mounts to use magnets to hold down the front. The front and bumper is mounted to the frame using a custom bracket and the rear is mounted to the body so that the body can tilt on the hing. IMG_8557.JPG

    The winch is compact and is a dual motor piece. Here are what the seats look like. IMG_8507.JPG

    This looks awesome! What is the servo in the back used for?

    There is only the front servo. That I made a custom bracket fr so that I can mount the 2200 lipo above it.

    You have a really nice unique rig! I like all the trick pieces.

    Oops. I was thinking the red box in the back was a servo.
