    Would this fit a 2wd VXL?

    Is the wheel base the same length?

    Grip! I didnít know you had a P4de too.. I just got the Bash armor for my P4de that my son drives. We had a big wreck last weekend and I destroyed the VG racing cage with my XMaxx.

    Howís that body holding up? My only concern in the mounting holes..

    Fantastic. No complaints. The P4de is a great truck with the right upgrades. I built mine from a roller. Itís a beast as well. I should drive it more.

    Got it done and love it. Only issue Iím having is the set screws seem like they need to be longer.. since the body is thicker itís harder to get the nuts on..

    I went to the hardware store and got 16mm set screws (stock Proline are 12mm). Perfect! Also, LHS had Mashers in stock so I got rid of the stocks. I have 3 blown out Mashers and 3 blown out Trenchers all stripped at the hex. I check every time but Iím ready to go to 17mm wheels..

    I have MIP CVDís front and rear so I think I need a special kit. Thatís next. Tough thing is that my son drives this at about 1/3 of what I built it for, but heís a kids and goes hard on asphalt and I canít keep the bits tight..

    Iíve got Tekno M6ís woth aluminum hexes, and HR 17mmís on those. Cured my issues totally. Had to boil and retape a couple tires recently.

    How's the body holding on ?

    My Proline Ford 1966 body is getting cracked up near the rear body post-holes (designed to break).
    The brute bodiy may be my next purchase.
    I hope it's a good and cheap option in the long run, don't want to buy and paint a new body every 6 months.

    But maybe I'll try my old rustler (2wd) body first.
