Hi, i have that same Defender body and im using a NightCrawler Custom Trail Chassis made by a guy in the vendor's section named mutiny22. The only bad thing about this, the last time i checked he stopped making them. I actually found mine on ebay alittle over a year ago. If you do find one of those, the chassis is set up for leaf springs but could be set up for a 4-link if needed. The only change needed was to move the rear leaf spring forward maybe 1/4 inch It is set up very close to the TCS X-trail chassis and that might work also. I could see if my X-trail chassis will work for that body if you would like. Any more questions i'll help out with what i can.

Default oh

The body i got from a guy on ebay. Most of these will come from Japan. I have been looking for another one for a while just in case i destroy the first one. I wanted it from the U.S to save on shipping, good luck because they don't come around that offten. Just type in "defender" or "landrover" in the r/c section in ebay and you will see a couple of them.

If you can't find anything I can build you one like mine? I did it just like Mnster's chassis on his C-10!
