Default Trx4 sport truggy build

I CUT THE BED OFF THE SPORT TRUCK BODY....
the little brackets are a bit of a problem, so aluminum plate extends upon the back window, oh well.....

Looks interesting. More sack then me when it comes to cutting stuff up. Could you bend the piece of aluminum going up the back of the cab to tuck inside the window?

The little 45angel brackets incorporated into top edge of the bed side and the back of the cab have to be trimmed off....So the aluminum plate has to extend up past the window to cover it.....

Forgive my ignorance... why do you guys call certain trail trucks truggy's? I know truggys as 1/8 race trucks...

I was still curious so I read the rules. Adding a back cage doesn't qualify as a truggy. Entire rear section needs to be tubed with integrated shock mounts and a roll bar.

I was curious because I just threw a back cage on my Sport.

Yes you are correct. A true truggy would be rear tube chassis with shocks mounted to the cage. No rear frame section.
