Default Ford Scx10 crew signing in

Hey guys, just got my kit today. I have all my components piece together except for what body I want to go with. My original plan was the f350 hilift, but decided against because of cost and durability. Another option was the tamiya bronco, but I'm against cutting the frame down to match the wheelbase. I do have a proline f100, but the body post holes are already cut for a tmaxx.

Any other ford body suggestions? I'm looking for lexan and somewhat good quality detail.

You can always use velcro to secure the F100 to the SCX and avoid having all the body post wholes. I have seem many do it and they like it. Looks good to.


there for you can have 1 body for 2 things

Hmm, wheelbase is only about 1/2" off, or 1/4" off centre from wheel.

Do you have any pics of one on the chassis? Might not be too out of proportion with 2.2's.

Right on man, thanks.

Think the revos like 14.1, slash is 13.2 and the stampede is 10.6.

I'm looking into it but apparently the body is a little bit shorter then the slash wheelbase. Still trying to determine if it's close to the 11.4".
Any suggestions?

Took a couple pics even though I won't be using this body. Looks good though.

Check out the proline bronco body, I think it has the same wheel base as a honcho.

The Honcho WB is about 1/2" longer than the Bronco body from HPI, I had to put shorter links in the rear to get it to line up. But I love the way mine looks!

I measure the proline bronco body and think it was still a bit short like 10.75".

I'm not a 100% yet but I might go with that diablo body, which is a short course version of the 2004 ford lightning concept. even has the side pipes.

sweet! raptor body and tbone brace came in. bulletproof merv ftw.

only the raptor body wheelbase is about an 1" too long. pretty dam close though.

have to decide on extending frame or leave the body for a slash.



but check out the clearance!
