    rally extended chassis ??

    anyone try to extend the chassis on any of the 1/16 models???
    i was wondering if there would be a way to do so,on the rally cause im tired of not being able to put a diff body on it....
    the width of the rally is about close to a 1/10 scale..
    hmmm what did i break now

    I would think 2 chassis and possibly longer center drive shafts. Those are the only things I can think of that connect front to rear.

    You need a different sized driveshaft for sure. Nothing else though, I think.

    How would you join two chassis together?
    Are the tires supposta to blow off going into 2nd?

    I'm sure the driveshaft wont be a problem. If all else fails you might just have to get some plastic ones from traxxas and trim them.

    As far as joining, plastic welding would be the best, but i double thats possible. Like Havok said i assume aluminum pieces would be the best way.
