you didn't paint the body yourself? the truck looks great but i personally think that masking and painting the body is most of the fun in this hobby. all my designs are drawn and cut and painted by me. don't get me wrong the truck looks great and i in no way are bashing you at all. i just like and enjoy the hell out of sitting and designing the body myself . and knowing that there is no way anyone can have the same body as me unless they copy my design from a post or pic.look at these and tell me what you think. and again i do not and will not bash another person for there choice to have there truck or car the way thay want.

I'm fairly new to this hobby, about 8 months. I don't have kit or paint experience and didn't want to botch anything up. I will attempt to assemble and paint my next project. I dig your trucks, nice paint.

Painting bodies isn't for everyone. I've tried in the past and have found that my painting skills suck, so I buy pre-painted bodies.

the chasis set up gets a solid 9
the body a 7.5
the tires and wheels are what reaaly pulls you down, a 6
over all 7.16
but I'm hard to please
it's still nicer than any of my MTs

motoxer52, when held side by side, the sut body and the savage25 body are identical in every aspect except for the hood. So, if there's a suv style body for the savage then my guess would be yes. Thanks guys for your replies, I'll take a solid 8 any day. I'm happy with my sut, still got a bug or two to work out. Other than that, it's great. I agree about the wheels and tires, I'm looking around for a different set.
