Default 1:6 International CXT Dually Build

So I just got a CXT body off of here for my new build!!. . . and in the process of shipping it to me it got broke :( . . . .but I was going to paint it anyway so just one extra step. . .it's gonna take me a little bit on this build as I have a few others going on too. . . .once I build the chassis I am going to dually it also. . . here's the mock up of what I have done so far after fixing the broken body:







And here's a pic next to my mog:

Looking good. What color is that?

A wraith axle can tuck up front, with the right hubs and wheels. My ol' CXT.

I guess I should post the broken body and repair pics too . . . sorry they are a little blurry

Here is the big broken piece . . .it had some other cracks in the body too but I didn't take pics of those:


And here it is repaired. . .you can kinda see a small line from it. . .hope it holds up when I add the chassis:

I did all those things in my build, link posted above. Ripped 1" square tube for
Chassis rails, Cut and rewelded MIPs, used Vanquish Ti links and a bulletproof AX10 trans with Crawler Innovations outputs. The Holmes Hobbies motor I used is out of stock but it pulled the 15lbs rig around the trail no problem.
Crawler or not, you'll want to have a good suspension setup (like pictured in my thread) due to the weight and at least a rear sway bar if you intend on driving it with any speed.
