    Question, why is everybody using 'i' in their product names? iPod, Hyaundi ix35, i45, i30, i20, and countless other places! (i know I spelt hyaundi wrong)
    Can you break a Rusty?
    Umm...No...No, you can't.

    it seems to be the cool thing to do at the moment... give it a while and it will be replaced with something else new, it always does

    perhaps someone might start adding a silent "q" to the end of every word instead

    In 1976, Volkswagen introduced a new and powerful injection engine, when it was common with carbureted. The letter "I" for injection was added and the term GTI was launched.

    Thanks for comments!

    I just added "i" just for distinguishing (I mean people now can distinguish my design and the original body of the stampede by just names)... but I really dunno why I didn't used other word instead of "i",neither!.

    I would think the fact that one exists and the other is simply a [very nice] drawing would be enough to distinguish the pair. Thanks for sharing.

    The body looks great, and you can draw really well. Wow.

    thanks guys... I appreciate your comments!
    BTW, I'd be really happy if someone tell me how can I show my design to the Traxxas design team (or Proline design team)...I'll do that 4 free...or I just get from them a Summit (1:10 #5607 red) and an ERBE (#5608 Black with red lines).

    you know...I don't have enough money to buy my dreams... (a Summit and an ERBE and "Belt cp v2" )

    Looks nice - and @RustinRR - it's Hyundai, and they were around way before the iPod was invented.

    That's a nice sketch. Do you have any means of making it for real?

    It would cost probably about 10,000.00 to get this body made, revised, tweaked to actually fit body mounting locations (bed section is way too low), and finalized with a production tool. Sketch to reality is a HUGE gap. It looks nice though. Great artwork.

    really? it'd costs about 10K $? w.o.w... BTW, thanks for your comments but one thing... why don't R/C manufactures make the bed section of monster trucks low (or lower)?

    Usually because they need the room to clear the suspension of the truck.

    I'm not sure what your truck body "changed," other than maybe a Chevy grill treatment. As, at the end of the day, a truck is a truck is a truck.
    For the most part Traxxas isn't going to change a body design unless they bring out a new model of the Stampede, and aftermarket companies like Proline don't generally make bodies for RCs that aren't raced or aren't sold in really high numbers as it's very cost prohibitive to bring new designs to market.

    To clear the rear suspension, the body would have to be as higher (overall) as you made the bed deep.

    can you tell me what you mean?! you know, I can't understand what you said "I'm not sure what your truck body "changed," other than maybe a Chevy grill treatment" if you mean I copied chevy's model, you're wrong. I just saw one Monster truck in "Monster Jam" TV program and then this design came to my mind.
