Im a fan of the HPI GT-2 bodies, just wish they were thicker like prolines. Nothing they make looks good IMO, no way in hell im putting a Ford body on my Flux

I like the looks of the Dodge charger, and the Grave robber personally
Only thing I don't like about the charger is how the rear bumper is taped on, and has the tendency to fall off (Shoe goo'd it on now), and the Grave robber is not a good idea on a flux [:@] other wise I doubt I'd have an issue (flux if it flips grinds the body posts FLAT really fast)

The charger pic is from over a year ago prior to adding 2.4ghz into it don't have any recent pics of it

Old School Willy's pickup. Axial B-17 Betty bodie. .060 thick. It was the first one I painted. The white star on top is painted. The rest are decals.

Looks like you already have. The front end is a direct copy of a f150.

Nice, you just can't beat those bodies for a good looking all around monster truck look. Just wish HPI made them thicker...

Schweet TRX, were you get the monster decals at? What paint you use on the wheels? Not running offset anymore with badlands?
