    a second confirmation that the bodies swap, pins line up the same.

    Occasionally trimming will need to be slightly different, as the front tires on the 4wd move nearly straight up and down, where the 2wd tires move up and back.

    The 4x4 body is very fragile due the sharp creases, meticulous details and thin lexan. However it can be reinforced with some shoe goo and fiber tapes along the crack prone areas (bed, hood, along the pilars of the cab and beneath the number plate) I did this to mine...holds up pretty well. The biggest advantage of the 4x4 body, it's very light lowering CoG, which why I use it only for racing events..well it looks very slick compared to the clumsy boxy look of the original 2wd. Fender openings are also bigger, so you get almost no wheel rubbing.

    Fits like a glove on my 2wd..

    ^^LOL we've got the same body! ^^ But I think it's 'natural' for 2wd owners to pick #25 (Marks Jenkins)...his actual truck IS a Pro-2 truck. J. Whelchel is also a Pro-2 driver..which is why I also have this body too for my 2wd.



    Ok I think we have enough confirmations that 4wd lid fits on 2wd...

    The correct brushed motor break in is in your manual. Just keep your truck oiled and take it easy at first. Oh and welcome.
