    Street Dune

    I got the idea from THIS THREAD. As soon as I saw what he was proposing, I bought the body. There are a few challenges to get it to fit, since it is not meant to be full-body nor for the Rally. I made a custom front body mount, but got lazy and didn't want to make a rear mount nor have the mounting post come through the recess in the trunk, so I opted to mount the body a bit more forward than originally desired. I also got really lazy with the paint job after just having airbrushed a Slash bug body, so I just painted it black with silver window trim to get it over with. To my surprise, I loved it. Sometime less is more. I haven't cut the front and back windows for ventilation yet. The windshield is silver trimmed, but you can't tell due to the glare.

    There will be some from of rear bumper

    I haven't driven it yet, so I don't exactly know how it will handle compared to my other Rally
