if you can shrik your WB bit so you are 13'' or just under the truck looks more realistic

Real monsters have a bit of body past the tires

Looks like a good start though

Wheelbase is at 13.6" now cause I just happened to have some 120mm Lunsford Ti links laying around. My body choice will dictate the WB. Still undecided. Thanks for the tip.

If they are holding up in Rootar's Wraith'd Monster truck they should hold for me.
I have 4 sets of spares though!

Thanks.

Rootar should be getting me his chassis templates soon.

I just placed the order for the Tekin Pro4 and Mamba Max Pro from Holmes Hobbies / Holmes Bikes

All other parts will be in sometime this week.

I want to use a Pro4 on my next build...I had my chassis built around a 540 because I wasnt racing or anything but it still moves...the Pro4 would really wake it up...

The pro4 fits any where any 540 can motor fits. Toss it in Bigfoot 18 and let her rip. chassis templates and a supply of tube should be to the szczerba shop by this Friday.

Last of the parts will be coming in tomorrow.

Installed a Robinson Racing One Piece Trans gear, Vanquish Trans Case, Billet Works Designs Motor Plate and some Underdrive out back and HD Stock ratio gears up front.

Used a DLux 1/8" SLW spacer as a template and a 1/2" countersink bit to mod the wheels to fit SLW hubs.

Wow, Ol' Eagle Eye. Nice catch. Same SLW hubs on all 4 corners but I didn't have one of the wheels screwed all the way tight and the hub was not seated on the hex fully.

Front and rear is 15" wide right now with a 13.5 or so wheelbase.

Slowly. AMA Supercross is on right now. And I smoked my Dremel.
These pieces just need a little bit more welding.
