    Academy Sb pro Truggy conversion

    Does anybody know what will fit in the way of body mounts and bodies? I know all about wheels and tires, and i'm also going to do my not-so-famous droop mod. (i came up with it myself)

    1/10 truck bodies will look wierd because the buggy has a short WB, maybe a CRT .5 body? not sure on the length of that. as for mounting...get creative!

    it doesn't have a short wheelbase. I have one, and it is almost the same length as my rusty.

    Somebody recommended i speak to you about this, i just wasn't sure who. I know that rusty wheels will fit and those will already make it wider, and with a little trimming of the front knuckles and this mod:

    I will be able to reach stadium truck like ground clearance. I think that these body mounts will work if i drill holes in the towers.

    yup. They will be able to mound to the side of the tower and stick straight up, unlike others from AE (a la gt)

    I am looking to get rid of this truck. It will be sold with a hard plastic wing and everything else you see in the pic. Please take note that the center driveshaft was never made, but is very easy to do. Any offers??? Thanks!
