    NASCAR Truck Series Edition???

    Before they released they rally, i thought they would make a Kyle Busch NASCAR truck. Does anyone like my idea? maybe just a rally with a slash body with Kyle Busch decals?. NASCAR style rims and tires?

    I'd buy one, infact I came onto traxxas.com expecting to find one for purchase. I was disappointed.

    I'd buy one too. I'd like the more racer style than drifter style rally. It'd be like the return of the traxxas spirit just completely re designed

    once the sales of the rally have slowed a bit. they will start doing other body shells.

    It would be nice if they had a full range of different rally car bodies. If these become as popular as it seems we're going to want more than the Ford Fiesta to race!

    the aftermarket companies(Proline,Jconcepts) will now have more ideas for the Merv chassis. so much can be done with the versatile platform. Stock car bodies, Craftsman Truck series, Rally, Gymkhana. PLEASE TRAXXAS. READ THESE FORUMS AND GET TO ER.

    thats a 4-tec 3.3 without an engine.

    imo a nastruck or nascar body would look so out of proportion on the rally.

    if you want a nascar/truck style body mc allister sells quite a few http://www.mcallisterracing.com/racing/page2.html that will all fit on a touring car (like the 4-tec)

    these will even fit a bandit if you do some modding and parts swapping

    The bandit would be a good platform.

    well this is my blue eagle ls, same wb as a bandit and running 2.2 buggy tires on 2.0 rims and the pontiac body

    you can see that it barely fits, you would need zero offset rear rims, and shorter front arms to make it work ( sledge arms are the first to come to mind)

    the best way imo is to bring back the e-4tec

    Cute, particularly the li'l NASCAR wheelset. Hopefully the Toyota connection will open the door for some other bodies; "drift" LFA would be awesome but I'd wager the new Toyobaru "FT" coupe would be first. Oh yea, clear Busch truck body == Pikes Peak Tacoma project!
