    I saw a video on Proline (I think) undertray, and it seem to act like a rock collector. I think it might have been a "Ultimate RC" video. Maybe try search YouTube to check it out.

    Try searching on YouTube for "Pro Line Racing 4x4 Slash undertray reviewed." I wouldn't buy / use it. Outerwear Shrouds work great tho.

    Yes, I learned it the hard way ... I used such a expensive piece of plastic. It isnt worth the money. Its a rock collector and once their where rocks between chassis and undertray it doesnt need much to have holes in the undertray (area of the rear bulkhead) from bottoming out. And yes... there is a video from Ultimate RC. Another thing is, that your car is more complicated to disassemble.

    is there an overtray for the LCG yet? Jconcepts seem to be the go to people for overtrays so maybe they will do one soon.

    You should get the real sized proline bodies, they look sweet in the MT setups!

    Tire, rims, body posts needed hop ups etc.

    Tires: http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXPCU9

    Wheels (yellow Slash): http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXVCA6

    Wheels (blue Slash): http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXTVD5
    For some reason the picture on Tower Hobbies shows the back side of the wheels.

    Trimmed about 1/4" off each side.

    Package comes with a lot more parts than whats pictured. You only use the longest posts for the front and second longest for the rear.

    I used adjustable body posts from proline for my body. Front fit fine and I widened the holes I the back a bit to make it fit.
    2.2 rpm wide crawler rims with mashers

    Front bumpers are the factory Slash bumper. For the rear we are using Stampede 4x4 wheelie bars.

    Not sure if its just the angle but the body looks too big for the chassis. Looks kinda weird but maybe try lowering it or something.

    Kinda funny the more I look at it the more I like it but at first it kinda looked wierd. I think its because the wheel was turned it looked weird. I love those chevy 1500 bodys though.
