Perfect, thank you

another question:

can something like this:

be scored as a 3d realistic engine or do you consider it only 2d?

2D since it's just a cover. Great option to hide a mess though!

How would you score a body like this?

Mjolnir Classe 3 SORRCA - Scalers & Crawlers

It's a new bright hardbody jeep front plus flat rigid metal panels on the rear, bolted on a vaterra twin hammers cage.

Does it get only -4 for rigid hardbody front cab or -4 plus -1 for rigid flat panels, if they can be added to hardbody points?

If he joins the rigid panels together with the front hardbody glueing them on the sides forming an only body piece, will he get full hardbody points or have the panels be tridimensional like the rest of the hardbody?

Quick question about boat sides. I'm assuming that the 1.25" measured from bottom of skid only refers to how much clearance is gained, therefore the measurement is taken at point A in the drawing.
Or, if I make metal sliders that cover the gap and turn up to protect the body, since that vertical portion is part of the slider (boat side), is it included in the measurement as in point B?
Thanks.

Correct, the "A" dimension.

Can anyone tell me if the back of the Sawback body is considered a SUV cargo area or a drop bed?

It's just the back of a Jeep right? SUV cargo area.

This tire was asked about in a group I'm in and I was curious as well. This passable as a scale tire? Mixed reviews among the group so looking for the committees ruling

The specs on the 1.9 tire make it only class 3 legal.

Size isn't the problem. The question I have is with it being a "scale" tire.

Lol I'm not even going there. Just asked about a tire. The frame rails have already been given a thumbs up. (-:
