    I have no place to run it yet. Maybe I'll pick up a set of off-road buggy wheels/tires and run in on a field...

    Squeegie: Again...awesome looking vehicle!

    I noticed you have a blue LED bar that faces inward toward the rx box.....what does it do? Make the body glow from within? Did you take any night pics?

    I just wanted to make the blue lights to come out of the vent holes in the back of the body.

    It didn't work out as well as I'd like... I should have just scuffed the inside of the slats and not cut them out, but I would rather have the venting to actually cool then to just look cool!

    I'll try to take some night pictures later.

    That would require a video camera which I do not have (except the one on my old iPhone 5S).

    I got an Akaso EK something. Itís the GoPro equivalent. You can check out comparisons on YouTube. It shoots videos in up to 4K and stills too. Camera, memory card, batteries, charger, case, accessories. 50 bucks. Price of a couple wheels and tires. Check eBay.

    The Akaso EK7000 sounds good.
    https://www.akaso.net/products/akaso...camcorder-kits

    Can get a refurb on eBay for only $44.95.

    Now you got me thinking...

    Well, I got some 1/8 buggy wheels/tires and took off my front bumper so I can run it in a field. Hopefully the suspension is not too stiff for it. I set it up for running on tarmac.

    I also took some shots of it earlier this evening to show you the blue interior lights.

    On to the pics:

    Really like your style. I am just finishing building my Backslash with the same body (just happened to be the one my local shop had on hand and glad they did). I am still trying to decide on the bumpers (the stock ones are on to protect it from my terrible driving) and my wheels are on order. Really cool to see what someone else did with the same body.

    Thank you for the welcome, been lurking for a while, saw your car and thought it was a good reason to start posting.

    Here is a teaser photo, still on the stock wheels, tires and bumpers, but it is starting to come together. I have some 2.8 badlands coming this week. Still trying to figure our what to do with the bumpers, need something for protection, but the factory are too big.

    Alright squeegie, you ask for it so here it is. My squeegie inspired body, which I'll call black widow. Not anywhere near the beauty you created but will do.
    Its alright son I'll fix it when you break it

    I was thinking I had to change it, darn you squeegie. Scropion is a good one! Also thought of venom ( spiderman not the batteries), I know he had black and red in one series or another. What ever she ends up being called thank you for the inspiration kind sir.

    He thought the stock bumper was too big. T-Bone's are even bigger... unless he cuts them down.

    Good suggestion, I have the T Bone bumpers for the SST and they are great, but really big. Trying to get the buggy look but still need some protection from me. Maybe the T Bone for 4x4 Stampede VX series.

    If you don't mind a little modding on the front bumper, then go with T-Bone. They have a LOT of front bumpers (709) that you can cut to shape, drill to mount, and heat to bend... that's what I do!

    Thanks you guys, you have given me some great ideas. I will stop hijacking this thread and start a new thread when I come up with something.

    Forgot... I've also used an RPM front bumper for the Slash 4x4 and cut, bent, and drilled it for my first BackSlash:

    I cant even lie - the second I saw the Typhon body on a Squeegie build I put in an order for it.

    Every build gets better and better, my man. Kudos.

    I like that one the best so far. Got a 4x4 stampede bumper coming in next week, figured it was worth trying for $8.25. Read that it was a good fit. Is that what you have on the slash in your profile pic? Also, I got my new wheels and tires today.

    Yes, WarBAJR II has the Stampede front bumper:


    https://forums.traxxas.com/showthrea...354-WarBAJR-II

    It is a drop-in replacement to the Slash 4x4 stock bumper.

    When running in BaskSlash configuration, I didn't like it. I know it's aesthetic, but I see it more as functionality. If the Scorpion (my BackSlash) were my 1:1 and I were actually sitting it it to drive it, I would not be able to see where I was going with that bumper. That is why I had to mod a bumper for it. See the pic on my post #73 above. As the driver, you can see ahead of you through the shock towers.

    Hard to see out through the Stampede bumper:



    I know I'm strange that way, but that bumper wasn't an option on the Scorpion for my way of thinking...
