    Torro metal hull for HL and Mato 3/1 gearboxes

    Has anyone bought and installed the Torro HL King Tiger hull and if so, what did you think? Plus, do you know if the Mato 3.1 gearbox with a Promax 480 will work as a direct drop in? My HL KT with DBC is such a slug, I'm upgrading to the above referenced gearbox and motors but I may want to upgrade later to the Torro hull. Appreciate your thoughts.

    This one?  http://www.rctank.de/product_info.ph...oducts_id=1296

    Got any pics, Pete?

    I've been eyeing this one for some time...just can't decide if I like the Henschel turret or the Porshe turret better.  If the HL upper will fit on this, that opens possibilities.

    Hi Thats the one I have ,got mine from Forgebear,as for the the upper the Heng Long upper  only takes the porsche turret because of the shot deflector.One thing i do know the Tamiya upper does fit as well as the mato upper .So it is possible to to fit other upper to the lower.

       regards pete

    okay...so the HL upper fits with its Porsche.  Of course, the Torro metal upper fits, too, with its Henschel turret.  Cool

    Choices...choices...choices...
