    Slw_sv8 had stampede truggy build he did a while back that was sick. I believe he used the bulldog body from the AE stadium truck. I'd have to find his thread to confirm this.

    I used proline bulldog, made for the electric rustler. Fits pretty well.

    Randy, none of your pics are coming up. it's just displayed as an "x". I've tried it on 2 browsers. Not sure why. I'd really like to see your ride.

    thanks bro! all is good. I apparently got bitten by the traxxas bug again. 2 slash 4x4s and a pede 4x4 in 2 months after running almost all associated buggies and truggies for almost 2 race seasons.
