    The baddest body in the land???

    I'm 3-4 months in to RC, and have been a little hard on my stock body. I've also been looking at 2.8 wheels, but before that...I need to figure out which direction my truck might go! Stay sc, monster, baja bug, 66 Ford?!? There's so many cool bodies out there! What are you guys rockin, and what do you think so far?!

    I'll show a couple of different ones.
    First body is 1972 Chevy from proline, special for me cause I grew up in a 72 k5 blazer.
    Second body is the Baja bug from proline, probably my favorite body. I've gone through three so far, this was my first body I ever did.
    Third body is jconcepts truth, I also really like this body. Second place for this one
    Last body is a Traxxas pro graphics, super easy to paint looks decent also.
    Some pictures are with a 2wd Slash but you get the idea. Hope this helps, remember keep having fun!
    Its alright son I'll fix it when you break it

    Think about the future. What do u want to do. Because it is the worst when u have to buy different parts when u already had something different.

    (For example I just upgraded my power plant to go to 3s-4s and use 2.8 tires. So I had to upgrade my axles and driveline. So I went tekno which are awesome. BUT, I also wanted to make it wider with a protrac a arm upgrade. That meant know I have to either spend more or don't make it wider.)

    So think about what u want ur rig to look like and calculate it, plan it then purchase. But most of all, Have FUN!!!!
    Sorry for long post,
    Thx gdude

    That yeti body looks amazing!!! That’s definitely on the end of my sc truck or not spectrum. While I do truly enjoy the sc bodies, there’s that personalization that you can’t quite reach from there. Is the modification extensive? Bug bodies or scale truck bodies are at the other end of my conundrum. I can’t tell you how helpful it is to see your setups as a rookie!!

    Most of what I’ve done is in my build thread.
    If you have questions, please ask there and I will try my best to answer. Thanks!

    Dangit squeegie....seeing your rigs makes me want to impulsively buy the bajr or bug body. Really like how low you put the bodies too! Look way clean!

    Right?!? Feeding my new addiction, and draining my wallet! Sure helps to see what those of you with truckloads of experience have learned though!!!
