depends on what look you want

if you want a more close to scale look it doesn;t really matter what body you get, maybe a your favorite vehicle or the one you hav always wanted or to resemble your 1:1

if you are going to compete you need to do some major cutting in the fender wells so your rig articulates better and in the front and rear bumper areas for better approach and departure angles, that is whjy you see alot of baja bugs out there

Hi there, just a comment on this pic, it seems as if you haven't shaved the tabs on the bottom of the tranny?

Looking good now, the tires and wheels are going to make the next biggest difference at this stage. M2ks seem to be the all around favorite for 2.2 comps unless you're going with a modified tire. You mentioned the body, a lot of people use the Bug for another reason also. Because of the rounded off shape many times in comps it will roll back over when other bodies stay stuck upside down.
