    root ripper

    http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXMPT4&P=7


    have you guys seen this body!!!! it was sooo cool that i purchased one for bashing (C of G is too high for racing).
    i am going to do a simple paint scheme, paint it orange with a silver cabin and black seats.

    should be able to bash it to death. roll cage looks the goods too.

    Yup it's the gold cart.

    Whatever makes you happy I guess. Me I wish they would make more of the Real Monster truck Bodies. Grave digger is so common, I would like to see others, El Toro Loco, Bulldozer, Ninja Turtle, etc. I think that would be kool.
    And Yeah call me crazy but the first time they come out with The Mystery Machine I'm on it. Rooby Rooby Doo! He he he

    I told you Nitro, just get an old lunch box body and mod it to fit.

    It's too small, I already tried. Won't clear the shock towers.

    almost as bad as the 4-wheeler body It looks kind of neat but I think it's out of character on a truck.

    I think they need to start coming out with more monster truck bodies like Maximum Destruction's futuristic suv. That would be the coolest body out there.

    Yes it's common, it's the ONLY Monster Truck body available.

    So if anyone has a monster truck body it's Grave Digger, I would call that common wouldn't you?

    They have a bounty hunter body also. I had it for a while.

    If you were good at painting and innovative you could make many different monster truck bodies with the standard bodies available. I just have recently seen a "Hot Wheels" painted body

    Now that is a classic, but I could never run it. It would look too cool to destroy.

    Haha Mr.T would be great for me because every calls me that in school.

    As for the Root Ripper, i would prefer a something like a crowd pleazer or something because the wheels look to big for a golf cart were as the wheels match the crowd pleazer because it isn't really any common vehicle and it is itself.

    That actually looks like a scaled up r/c MT, what with the body sitting "atop" the shock towers. :-)
    If it ain't broke, don't fix it but if you can upgrade it, break it.

    This is about as close as you can get to a shorty bus.


    The problem with the root ripper is the bars will not hold up very long in a all out bash then you just have the golf cart look

    yeah, i just wanted to try it out. its not a golf buggy....pro-line make another body that is a golf buggy. have you ever seen a kawasaki mule? its more like that than a golf cart (though when people come to our farm they always think the mule is a golf cart)

    i let you know how the roll cage holds up.....i intended on smacking it up, so like any body, its not going to last forever.

    oh yeah, the one in the picture is running 40 series wheels, i've got standard tires.

    Go for it man, thats what makes this hobby so great you can create your own ideas build them to scale. You never know someone might see your idea and build a full scale version of your truck. I can see it now. The "Monster Bus" lol
