This will be a slow going project as I can only tend to it during my free time from work, which is very limited. Nonetheless, hoping to start out by getting some ideas from you guys. I know that there are not many Traxxas owners here, but I could use some ideas from you more experienced RC owners and modders. Wondering if anyone has any ideas they can pitch for me on making the Summit to look more scale. The Summit looks great, but after looking at some scale 4x4's I've been thinking of doing a project to make mine look more scale looking. I understand that the Summit does not have solid axles which is some kind of a trademark of scale 4x4s, so instead I plan on attacking by modifying the body and maybe some new set of wheels. For starters, I'm planning to get new tires and beadlock wheels for that. Maybe start out by removing the exo-cage from the lexan body and just use the cage as a start point to make my own body (with fenders, ala Mini Moke or WWII Jeep): Mini Moke I just haven't decided yet on what body material and what building technique to use and could use some recommendations with that as I am still new to this RC thing. If there are any 1/5 or 1/6 scale body that would fit the Summit's wheelbase, that would be cool too. Any thoughts?
