Default Truck body option found

Was looking at the Jconcepts Illuzion Slash 2wd - Ford Raptor SVT SC body at the LHS the other day. Some of you guys may want to check it out. Way better fit than the MT body. Width is very close and so is the wheel base.

Page 5 of the picture archive has a HPI mini trophy truck on it and it looks right.

http://www.rccrawler.com/forum/vater...archive-5.html

I'm sure the bedsides can be made to fit. That would complete the look.

Edit:

Just saw your thread heinie. I thought the OP meant "monster truck" (like stampede) body when he typed "MT". My bad. Carry on.

The bedsides match up real well if you swap the TWH trailing Arms for hpi Mt trailing Arms. That extends the wb by about an inch. Also the Mt body is just a hair narrow for the TWH (for scale looks)but throwing sc wheels on narrows it right up for the Mt body. I plan on doing the trophy truck conversion next week over spring break.
