    My extended wheelbase Rally VXL

    This is my extended Rally VXL.... insert evil laugh MUAH HA HA HA

    the bodies are not painted yet but this is so you can see the fit. still have to trim the foam up front to get them to fit exact, that's why the coupe body is backwards in the pic. lemme know what you think.





    34' Ford Coupe


    Ford Raptor

    I'm surprised he thought he could just slip by without saying how he did it. I'm digging the coupe body on it.

    I'm actually in the process of test and tune right now. as soon as I know it will hold up to running and the power of the VXL I am going to post a how to with pictures. it's just short but it's close enough that with careful trimming you can make most 190mm touring bodies fit.

    I am still in the test and tune mode. I just wanted to update with a couple pics on how the body looks. been raining like crazy here so just doing body mods and re-working the mounts for now. (yeah I know they are "water-proof" but I still try not to run in water). plus these have no traction as it is let alone running 50MPH and hydroplaning. I should be able to get another 1/2 inch out of it and be able to have a full 255mm wheelbase and 190mm width with 3mm offset wheels. this will make any 190mm body fit perfect. once I have that I will post the how to. please be patient, I do not want to post a how to before I know it will hold up. I hope you can understand this.

    in these pictures I am running 3mm offset in front and 6mm in rear.
