Default rock bouncing tube chassis

Hey
So are there any guys or company that make custom tube chassis?
Or if i build my own i was thinking id just build it round the stock link and axle dimesions. Would there be anything id change in the shock angles, softness, etc.
Thanks snyds

This is the one I built for my son. I used all of the stock components from a Redcat Everest. Most of them broke and have now been upgraded to SCX10 stuff.

Here is a design template you can use to make building a chassis easier. It is designed around a Wraith drivetrain.

The info on Harley's site says it is designed around the Axial Wraith drivetrain. I don't have a Wraith, but I'd say wheel base around 13-13.5" and width at outside of tires 11.5-12'.
Hope that helps!
I use 3/16 and1/4"od stainless steel tube and rod for my builds.
