    VERY nice paint job on the "M/T" body. I'm wanting to try that body too now. Thanks for the link to it!!
    Are those the 30 series badlands on there? That's what I'm running.

    How much wheel well trimming was required. I bought a JConcepts Glad body and am very turned off because of the lack of headlight, Grill, Tail light decales. I dont want to have to mess with the extra painting. That looks very good. Also did you have to mess around with the body posts

    Thanks guys, it turned out pretty cool I thought. Wife and daughter picked the paint colors.

    Those are the 30 series badlands with Torque rear Jato wheels.

    The only trimming that was required on the body was on the front bumper and on the front wheel wells. I haven't run the body yet so there might be a bit more trimming to do on the front wheel wells but not much. The front bumper needed trimmed because it came down far enough to hit the bumper support. Other than that, I followed all the trim lines on the body.

    The body posts are stock, no modification.

    I did remove the nerf bars though.

    Hopefully I don't have problems with the axles, I know there are alot of people that are but I believe Round is running his stock axles yet on his MT.

    Hey looks awesome. I did twist an axle so keep the slipper a tad on the loose side with those wheels. You are gonna love it. Keep us posted on how those wheels work out. I can't wait for someone to make some cvd's.

    Beautiful looking truck. While I love the short course trucks, particularly the Slash 4x4, I'm not into the bodies too much. They just seem too big and clumsy to me. Anyway, I'm looking to order a Slash 4x4 in the next few weeks and I'm definitely going to do the exact same thing you did.

    Just to make sure I have the body correct, that's the C10 for the for E-MAXX® 3905, E-REVO®, REVO® 3.3 & MGT, right??

    Thanks for posting up the pics. Great looking rig!!

    All of the long wheelbase mt bodies will work. I have also used a Ford F250 on a slash.

    Thank you very kindly, Round. By the way, I love your MT Slash 4x4 thread. I learned a lot. Thanks for blazing the trail and testing things out.
