    My Monster Rat

    Just finished my new body.. I don't know why but there should be 3 different greens on the paint from light to dark but the photo shows only 1 green




    Proline Desert Rat Body
    Axial Rockster beadlock wheels
    Yokohama Geolandar Tires

    This truck is actually drivable but I lessen the turning radius by a bunch so the bead won't hit the caster block's screw when the truck turns.

    I also put fuel pipe through the shock shaft to limit travel so the tires don't rub onto inside of the fenders.

    Comments welcome..

    mostly in a house, but often I find myself spending the night under bridges and riding on my slash to school.

    thank you for your comments, guys..!

    @rustlerbasher: This was actually a set of MX decals which I got them off eb*y.. most of other set are large in sizes.. I just use the smaller ones and trim the clear edges so they appear clean against the black paint

    Wow...I normally hate everything and anything Monster because their logo and graphics are so played out, but this looks amazing! Awesome job. I just can't get over how cool it looks.

    Comments welcome..

    you don't have to lessen the turning radius...just do what I did...unscrew the screw from the castor block...and thread it in the other side...meaning the nut for it will be on the other side meaning no more rim hitting the screw...

    That's one sick looking body man!! Will you (actually)be using this body on the Abadi Track?? I mean...that track would kill the show qualitiness of this body! But finally, somebody who cares about looks and performance on our local track! Btw, I sent you PM, pls check. Thanks.

    Myth busted: Blitz is not faster on the track.

    I focused too much on the body I neglected that possibility.. thank you for the tip, fox.. I repositioned the nut and now it can turn fully..great!

    @all: thanks all your comments, guys. I really appreciate it.

    @whom asking the lights: it's a light bar from 3Racing. They come with led and actually quite bright. I took the leds out for my purpose, though (offroad bashing)

    thank you, sir.. I actually will because my stock body is so beat up it's an eyesore hehehe.. but I won't be so careless like with my older stock body. It's an off-road truck so I won't mind some scratches..well, not too much, though..hahaha
