    I've been thinking of getting a slash body and cutting out a strip in the middle to shorten it. But reattaching the front to the back might be a bit tricky.

    Ok. Thanks guys, I didn't realize the power of Gorilla tape. I'll go buy some Gorilla tape and acetone to dissolve the tire glue. Will the acetone dissolve the foam inserts as well?
