That looks good! How well does it handle with the die-cast body?

Tbh I have not ran it yet. I think it will be a bit top heavy

That's my concern. However, I'd be curious to see a running video. I've been interested in putting one of those bodies on mine. If it isn't to top heavy, it might make a nice scale trail rig.

That looks fantastic. Where did you pick up the donor jeep?

How was it to mount to chassis?

with the metal chassis and axles to balance it out it might not be too bad - overall weight isn't going to help the stock motor setup though. It looks fookin marvelous though mate, great job.

That's kinda what I was thinking too. I think I might have to pick one of these up to try it. I've already got a dual motor setup in mine so it should handle the extra weight. Worth a try at least.

It took a bit of cutting. It's held in place with 3 m3 cap heads. Not the neatest of cutting.Hope the pics explain.

Looking good! I just ordered one of these jeeps off the 'bay. So I'll definitely be stealing some ideas, if you don't mind.

I am in the process of copying Sparks1337 motor conversion. Using a 180 motor. He was very kind to sell me his spare parts for me to make it.

Ordered a G2-18th off RPP today, maybe it'll make it here Friday. I couldnt resist, my SCX has bearing on the way and the G2 qualifies for free shipping and "DC20" coupon code; I chose to get Baja claws, so my total is $195 shipped for it with a spare set of tires.

I will be watching your progress and mods.
In regards to the heavy body; From videos it looks like more weight will help it; it appears that the suspension is too stiff, but again, I haven't received mine yet to really judge.

Yours look great with that body!

In comparison to the dirt grabbers, how well do the baja claws work in soft sand/dirt?

New motor fitted and it is 200% better. I am not liking the controller so I am going to get a micro esc and used my spectrum tx. Space is limited so I cut the rear floor and seat out. Covered it with scale chequer plate, this gives me space to mount the electrics.
