Default Body Choices

I am fairly new to RC Crawling and would like to upgrade my Twin Hammers. I really want a different body but don't know which ones work well with the TH. If anyone has any suggestions on bodies and how to trim them that would be super helpful.

The Tamiya Sand Scorcher body works pretty well with a litttle custom fitting. That's what I'm currently running, although I might be switching it up soon. Here's a pick of its current state.

That looks so sick. What did you have to trim.

I trimmed the front half of the Hammers cage off. And on the body I trimmed the fenders off, and had to trim the back to fit over the cage. It uses neo-mags for body mounts. When I get home I can try to get some body off shots.

What kinds of neo-mags did you use?

They were ones that I got from my local hardware store. I think they were 3/8" or 1/2". I have a build thread for it.

Here's a body off pic. It's a total hack job, so don't judge to bad. But you can see the magnet plates I made for the front and sides. There just made out of styrene.
