Default Proline Baja bug body?

Looking at the proline Baja bug body for my savage flux,

But there are two sizes

will the long wheelbase Baja body fit the standard length savage?

I just think the shorter Baja bug body looks too short,

I think the short wheelbase looks too short on the savage,

The wheelbase is over half an inch shorter than the savage chassis,
and the long wheelbase body is half an inch longer than the savage wheelbase

Seeing that the extended revo 3.3 is around the same wheelbase as a stock savage
Does anyone have the long wheelbase baja body fitted to their savage?

The short wheelbase body will NOT fit the Savage Flux.

You will want to go with the 3.3 extended body..




Here is the short wheelbase one on an Old-school E-Maxx

Thanks T9 I was thinking the short bug body looked way too short between the wheels,

Also hated that gap round the rear arches,

I already went ahead and ordered the extended body,

Glad to hear that it's gonna fit my flux[8D]

My flux eats bodyshells,

I was hoping the rounded roof of the bug body would be better than a square edged pickup cab,

As mine wear through almost first run out,

The bug body is the best bashing body for the Flux. That is the only body I have ever ran on my Flux...

I trimmed and mounted the Baja bug extended bodyshell to my savage flux today,

Just have to decide a paint scheme,

The extended body is just the right size for the standard length flux,

It defiantly would look out of place on a savage xl or a losi lst length truck.
