It's actually a frame piece from the old Tamiya TLT kit that I bolted to the SCX frame and bent the screw to angle out like that. 1/4" brake line would work too but this looks like stainless.

Hey Ty, I bought the proline bumpers but I'm not sure how the body posts are used to mount them. How did you mount yours?

Hey matrix! Thanks for the PM. I really like the Raptor body, I am just trying to figure out which one would work best on my Honcho chassis. I know none of them will be perfect, but maybe one will be close enough. The Honcho does have a longer wheelbase as compared to the standard SCX10, so that may help some, but width and overall size will make a difference as well. If you can, dimensions would help, or even other pictures (overhead, front, etc) would be great. Like I said, and help you can provide would be awesome! Thanks matrix! By the way, I really like the look of the old Ford truck body on that chassis!

Cool.

I was also thinking the stampede body is smaller but it doesn't match the wheelbase. Maybe like 1 or 2" shorter based on this pic.

I did get dimensions from I guy that purchased the actual slash raptor body, maybe someone on there has the stampede.

Actually the slash body would be close fit if I got longer links to change the wb. But the other thing to consider is the overhang. There is a fair amount compared to my f100.

What about the Proline 2008 Ford F250 body? Wheelbase is at 12.8" (a tad long for most folks), but I'm actually going to order it and use it on my TTC style rig. Plus the fact we've always had Super Duty trucks in the family adds onto the fact I'm using it...lol

I actually have one of those bodies on hand, and it does fit pretty well actually. I don't have it mounted at all, but just setting it on my Honcho, the wheel wells actually match up pretty nicely.

I just really like the Raptor! That is why I am interested in that body. The thing with the F250 body I have, is that is too short to fit a Revo 3.3, so the Raptor for the Revo 3.3 would be too long for the Honcho.

Although lexan makes sense for paint damage prevention, I want one hard body for show. And I totally love the tamiya high lift f350 for that.

The f100 body is actually for my tmaxx. Its got the body and bumper holes. But it looks really cool on the scx. Kind of undecided.

I didn't see any pictures of the back, but I wonder what it would look like lowered a bit. You might be able to fashion a winch to fit where the holes are in the front bumper. That is a sweet looking body.

Well I got my 2.2 tsl boggers installed, but if I want to keep my wheelwells stock, the body needed to be lifted even more to clear for max suspension articulation. Its alot higher then I wanted but would like to keep my body untrimmed. Maybe inner fenders would help for the look.

What do you guys think?

putting a ford body on any crawler makes it looks better. For that matter, putting one on anything makes it better. I'm a ford man, as you can tell. I'll be honest, I think my Exceed Maxstone converted to an axial looks great with my blue/tan f-250 super duty body slapped on it.
