It's cool to see the clones making kits. Maybe kits are coming back. But this has nothing different that would even tempt me to try it.

The frame and shock towers look identical to the SCX10. Some of the other stuff is similar, but, yes, there are some differences as well.

I don't know anything about the chassis, but the body is pretty cool and I REALLY dig this paintjob. Poking around their website, it looks like Danny Huynh did the paint. His creativity is always off the charts. Love it.

The body looks like a Nukizer done better than both Axial and RC4WD. The grilled is hard plastic as seen in other photos.

Does Hobbytech have a distributor in the USA?

I've been sending emails back and forth with hobbytech to see if I can get my hands on a clear body. Still haven't gotten a straight answer. They keep trying to push the whole rig on me. I don't want the whole rig. I just want the body. If it comes available I'll probably get it instead of another Nukizer and make a truggy out of it. I'll let you guys know what I find out from then.

It's a classic '60s Jeep Gladiator body, whereas the Nukizer is a Jeep Concept-only truck. I'm sure they'll sell tons of the body if they make it available separately.

More of us should bug them about it. If they see there's demand for it maybe they'd be more likely to make it available.

The tires look like a mix between Hyrax and something else. I wonder how the compound is, and whether it'll do any good.

Ok guys here's the body
CRX BODY | Hobbytech-rc

Here's where to buy it.
Crawler Survival clear Body fully complety set

Looks like $77 and change for this body, but does come with grill and everything so really that's not all that bad. Don't know if I would spend that much to cut the bed off and make a truggy out of it tho.

That body (minus the ugly snorkel) is pretty nice, best looking Gladiator type RC pickup body I've seen yet. Pass on the rest of it.

OMG, I need a tutorial on these paintjobs ASAP. There looks to be a lot of wet sanding involved but I can't figure out how he does the dirt/rust so well.

And OG crappy AX-10 steering knuckles. Axles look like TRX-4 diff covers with Axial housing, big bulky end peices that bolt on. Only thing interesting here is the body and I like the HPI like forward motor with transfer case.
