    Halo Warthog body?

    I swear i have seen a couple of these in passing for 1/10th scale stuff. Im thinking Microsoft would have that on a leash so its probably just something that looks like it but does anyone know if any of the body builders make such a thing? I was thinking tonight about how cool that might look on the Slayer.

    not totally sure, i remember seeing a body like what im thinking of a few years back. the crawlers are basically only a couple years old at most aren't they? I have been looking all night at every body MFG i can think of and there is nothing that i can find thats 1/10th scale

    They made one for 2.5 chassis Revos too. If I remember correctly, it didn't sell well and they axed it. You could still probably find one on eBay or somewhere.

    EDIT: OMG that would look freakin' awesome on a Slayer!! LOL

    hmmm how big is the axial scorpion? the pics they use for this thing make the body look tiny but the dimensions say otherwise. None of the LHS have stock right now on this so i cant even go look at the shell to see if it would be even close to fitting on my slayer. Worst case im thinking i would need to pull the nerf bars, or the shell would sit on top of them.

    the axial body is tiny and in no way would fit a slayer. I have it for my ax-10, and it is termed as "the smallest comp legal body" for crawlers. Also it is called the "helios"

    I wonder how the Kawasaki 700 four-wheeler body would look on the slayer? I found a place that has some, I don't know if it would fit or not but what do you guys think? Let me know and maybe I'll order one, there only 17.99 plus shipping!

    Hello all,

    You have to keep in mind that the bodys for the slayer are insanely huge. The proline bodies measure 22" L X 12" W. The tires will stick out of the sides really bad on anything else. Like one of those lowrider pickups with the small spoke rims you see sometimes.

    I have an axial SCX 10 and have searched a LOT of bodies for it. The widest proline bodies are about 7-8" wide so a lot of the a-arms will stick out of the body on a slayer. Personally I went and bought a New Bright R\C for my crawler, its a hard plastic body of a jeep wrangler. It is about 15" long and 8" wide.

    I just wanted to point out that you will be hard pressed to find any body to cover the truck and the tires both. That slayer body gargantuan.

    Same with me! Especially with the quad body on it, it would look like one of those quads that race! That would look really freakin sweet! IMO

    necro post but its my old thread... :P

    the 2.5 Helios body will fit over the important stuff on the slayer correct? Its the revo platinum on the longer chassis isnt it? they have these listed in stock over at thetoyz. i still want to do this body up even though i have been spending way more time last fall with my MERV.

    this one for clarity.

    im hoping to order up some MERV parts shortly and would love to get my hands on this shell for my slayer.

    Yea, i found one today at my local hobby store, i am going to pick it up right now. It seems as though it has been discontinued due to copy rights.
    Just a noob

    if i ever paint it i will def post pics haha. im on the fence right now in terms of keeping the slayer chassis or swapping to the Platinum chassis i picked up. i dont want to paint and mount this on the 2.5 chassis just to change to the 3.3 not sure if theres enough room on the front mount area to change them out.

    Friend of mine that has painted most of my bodies has it in his basement right now. he is trying to figure out how to properly do that mirrored gold finish like an astronauts helmet visor. and he already has plans for what is essentially a white digital cammo look for the body itself with the goldish mirrored stuff for the windows.
