    I want a realistic body for my Night Crawler 2.0, does anyone have any suggestions and what scale does it need to be to not interfere with the suspension travel? All help is welcome and thanks for your input.[​IMG]

    almost any 1:10 scale body will work. but anything realistic at all will effect the suspension travel.
    best way is to make a frame to mount the shocks strait up and down. then it will look better with a scale body aswell.
    here is mine back in the day. Its back to a crawler now.
     
    buttm0nk3y and JAYRRIG like this.

    Yours looks wide! Did you space the tires out or is that the body making it look wider?

    Just the body. It was 100% stock. Just with 2 frame rails made for the shocks to mount to. The video might be squished aswell. Youtube messed up all my videos when they did a update about 4-5 years ago

    Still pretty sweet! Do you have any pictures of it like that without the body on? Just curious how the frame rails were installed
