I got my rails from fishes crawler parts... Very nice and heavy duty, some use stock axial chassis and lengthen it...

got some more done.. i used traxxas battery mount posts to mount the cab. i also used left over ring magnets over them as spacers to keep the body in better position. the plus side is when i put in the body clips, the magnets hold them in place fairly securely..
