Default First every scale build

Im looking at doing my very first scale build using this body that I have had for a few years. Anyone else do a scale build with this body? Im having trouble finding a chassis I want to use that I can get a 13.5 wheel base with that will look right. Im really not wanting to make a custom chassis but its starting to look like my only option. I will also be using for now the 2.2 mudslinger tires with the (i forget the name) delrin bedlock wheels.

Any chassis should be able to be stretched to 13.5" with some longer rear links, new shock towers in the rear and a driveshaft, shouldn't be too much to change really. I say change the rear because once you change the front you may need a new panhard mount and to relocate the servo, basically a rethink of the steering geometry.

I was thinking about going with the scx10 ii chassis and doing just that.
