THIS HERE. This is the type of style tuber I would love to see a regular production of. This style and that will fit a decent range of cut Pro-Line bodies such as the Rubi it has at top of it or maybe an FJ.

You guys need to build some copies of your purple landcruiser! That is my dream rig! Get some of them built and I will for sure buy one! I think that is the style you should do, or at least one of the styles.

I really like those alot. But we are looking to make a more simplified chassis, to get these into a price range that most can handle. A chassis like the above is quite time consuming to make. Who ever did them has done some very nice work

Corey.... I like the fact you are price sensitive.....I would also think something more simple would weigh less...some of these tubers are tanks...My 2 cents....Storm

Yeah, thats true. I already have a 7 pound crawler, something a bit lighter would be nice.

did a little testing today !!! gettin closer....

most of the "body panels" are off while I'm messing with diff setups, it's just easier that way. the last pic is a "photo chop" of it with all the panels and some color to give you a little better idea of the look I'm going for.

Yup, I think I like it. I do see a little bit of Karnivore in that windsheild/cowl area...

hey thanks guys !

just so you all know I'm trying to build this chassis to be able to run a number of diff components and setups. there is vertical link adjustment, enough room for a pede transmission (mounted in pic just did a little trimming on the pede to remove some usless plastic), and a stick pack up under the front of the "hood". so building arround a pede and a stick pack IMO left enough room for most other trannys and batterys that are ran in our crawlers. in the pics there is a Tekin R2 speed control and a TQ3 reciever, which means that there is room for most speed controls and reciever's back there. oh yea diffrent shock locations too...

looks good, nice to see people making production tubers...

one suggestion, i think the front is a bit square, maybe give a slight point in the middle maybe, the rest looks awesome.

Yeah, now that you mention it...

Maybe just knock the front corners off a bit with an angle/chamfer?

Thumbs up

looks realy great the way you got it already and i wouldnt change it unless it needed to be, i think with out panels on the rear it would make it look as if it has a rear carrier fitted and i would leave the front side ones off to just to show off the frame a bit more but thats just my thoughts if i had one.

(when you starting production)

or add a little boner bar to the front.

i hate being limited on shock or link mount locations, it looks as you are already addressing that.

i personally would love to see a 1.9 warpig style chassis. rear 4 link and juggy leafs up front, tuber bed area and the user can fab whatever cab they want to it. with winch and servo mounts...

Thanx for the compliment, 2 yrs and counting. Heavy as a tank as well!!
