    How much did you have to modify body or chassis to make that body fit. I love the look of that ARRMA body.

    Haven't got around to soldering all my ESCs and LiPos to run the Castle 6.5mm connectors. Thinking of running a center mount motor w/dual batteries and would do all my updated wiring/connectors at that time for my sensored Tekin system.

    In other words... I'm lazy!

    The only thing I modified on the body was to trim the front a little to not "flap" and the back to go around the rear shocks. I was going to flip the rear A-arms and mount the shocks in the behind the A-arms, but I forgot and only remembered after I cut it already.

    I also reamed holes on the sides to put M4 bolts in to mount the Pro-Line body caps:

    I ran the Tundra body a few times before I changed it to this. The Tundra body was just a "had to do" because I have a 1:1 Tundra.

    The paints are by Spazstix. Colors are Ultimate Mirror Chrome, Ultimate Black Backer, and Candy Black Window Tint.

    I got carried away with the tint and the windows are just about limo tint!

    That's the best looking backslash I have ever seen. The paint and the Typhon body are perfect.

    Squeegie my man, that is one beautiful and mean looking car you've built yourself there. Where do you get your inspiration from? And, have you ever built something that was a flop?
    Its alright son I'll fix it when you break it

    Inspiration? Right here. If not for this forum, my rig (and wallet) would be very different.

    Have not made a body flop yet. I have an active imagination and can picture most of what I want before I get it in hand. The problem is that I always want to make different changes. That said, I already have a "vision" on a speed runner and most parts to do it, but that means that I would have to change this one... and I just finished it!

    I wish I had the $$$ to just build a whole new rig...

    Squeegie that looks freakin awesome. Thanks for giving me some new ideas! I have always liked how you always seem to find a way to mount different bodies on your different builds. Keep it up!

    The parts for this build have been collecting since February of 2017 or earlier.

    Just take your time... eventually it will look like you've envisioned it!

    Looks beautiful! Do have any running videos with those slicks on? Also I've seen people have chipping issues with spaz chrome, but they had an offroad rig that tumbled a lot, it actually deterred me from doing a chrome finish on my last slash 2wd revision, hope it's working for you, though!

    No, I don't mind. If I did, I wouldn't have posted pictures of mine.
    All I ask is that you post pics of yours when you finish.
    I would love to see pics of your version.

    In some distant dimension it might measure up to your creation, here on Earth I have no chance of measuring up! For the sake of science, I'll embarrass myself, ha.

    If it works as it should, who really cares what it looks like.
    What really matters is that you have fun building it!
