    says 1/8 scale on the box? pics are deceiving but it looks small for a 1/8, trx4 is appx 23 inches, and said bronco is 22 inches. should fit right? adjust the wheelbase and/or maybe cut the chassis a bit?

    Good news, Newbright makes a ford raptor 1:8 rc that a lot of RC guys use as 1/10 bodies, and it works very well.
    Some photos here: http://www.rccrawler.com/forum/1-9-s...ml#post5862612

    Car here: http://www.newbright.com/products/r-...50-svt-raptor/

    Both are 22' inch as spec'd by the website, so wheelbase should be similar.
    Jumping: maneuver and pray it won't break.

    Slight problem, apparently the stock TRX4 has a wheelbase too long for the Raptor, but you could easily adjust the wheelbase.

    Newbright and Ford got together when they were finalizing the body design and contracted for the production of an RC. Part of the contract was likely that Newbright couldn't release their product until Ford officially revealed the Bronco. This happens all of the time with Lego and movies.

    I unsderstand, but I think this grade bodies not fit in a TRX4 chassis, the scales in this products are awful.

    I ask this guy to the body shell, he says he mount it in an Axial rig and buy it in Walmart.

    I think your still missing the whole point. It's not about buying it and dropping it on the TRX4 chassis. It's about a nice looking body that's similar in size to the TRX4. Everyone commenting knows it's going to be a custom modification to fit it on. That's part of the hobby, to take something you like and make it work for your application.

    He's just saying that it's possible to buy it right now at Walmart and pop it on a chassis, because Greatscott said that they might not release the product before the 1:1 Bronco is released.

    I understand the mate, for this, I put the answer of the Instagram guy, if he can put the body shell in an Axial, Unstudded 6.0 can use it, with mods, of course, in a TRX4.

    OK. The confusion is probably from the language barrier. Sorry for the misunderstanding.
