i know exactly what you mean wan . and i have thought about doing it a few times but im still thinking of how i could build it . you could get the rear and front section of the baja5b then make your own chassis into a monster truck kinda shape , i would use 5mm thick alloy plate to make it , perhaps it would be a good home project

but when using baja5b parts front and rear section we would need to moddify the height of the front and rear wheels for a good under chassis clearance about 4inch like the hpi savage has , we would need to re position the shock towers and see if the rear axles will still rotate good without coming out of the output drive shafts . i will proberly look at making my own at the end of this year to start of next year though cos i need lots of money lol.
