    Sounds promising. I'm curious how it looks in the end.
    You can also get a Merv and put a Ford Raptor body on it

    I guess you are right about that it will hold up better.
    I like the Proline Raptor body. It's only a little thin.

    lol @ lunchbox. Give it a go with a paint job and it might look pretty cool.

    How did you do the shorter chassis? Put a chainsaw on it and glued the pieces back together?

    got some measurements on the Raptor, and it might fit, the length is perfekt, 10mm to narrow, got on the bed, app 45mm to the edge, and the hood, app 50mm to the edge..

    was not the easiest part to do the measure, and get on the chassi, and then cut.. it is just CA together now, to see how it look. It will be reinforced with 2mm carbon fiber at the

    Bottom - over and under chassi
    Sides - in and outside

    See if i can cut a little toppdeck for it..

    Thanks mate, not sure how i will do...The Truck look awsome with the paddles/Lid, might be little to wide..

    There is 2 options for me.

    Easiest is to get Wheels with less offset, but i must have wheels with enough diameter otherwise they will touch the casterblock. And im not sure about 2.8 wheels..if so, i need real lowprofile rubber, so it wont get to big..

    Other is to, drill new holes in the arms, and get less width app 10mm total (5mm on each side)

    im off to the store later to get , screw,nuts,spareparts,paint,parma extended bodymounts, and test the Raptor lid to..ohh, and some new Tires to

    I hope you can keep the COG low enough to give it a good handling. Funny to see a Lipo block instead of a brick

    Have you looked at the hpi line of bodies? The smaller truck they make may be a close fit for bodies. I've seen a few cool ones. I like the lunch box lid too, its one of the trucks I had as a teen. Really cool build so far.

    towerhobbies listings show the specs for each body. That makes shopping easier lol

    These are for the savage xs, with a wheelbase of 225mm. they also have the gt2 truck body for this size.

    So cool!
    So you cut the chassis and then bolted it together with carbon fiber and screws?

    Nice project, definitely traxxas should look at this, it would be a better 1/16 chassis, with 1/10 diffs that doesn't strip, easy to work on.
