Default Easy chassis rails for modding your RS10!

saw this on ebay for sale...such a simple way to add chassis rails to your RS10.

These are Tamiya CR-01 chassis rails just bolted onto the stock chassis. This gives you many more ways to mount your shocks, as well as a place to mount bumpers to.

If you want to add a more scale looking body to your RS10, chassis rails are almost a must. Ive made my own in the past out of "L" angle aluminum, but the CR-01 rails look way better.

Just search for "Tamiya CR01 54049"
I found some on ebay for $25 (but they ship from hong kong)
You might be able to buy them from tamiyausa.com
There is also a guy on ebay (rc recycler) who parts out rock crawlers and has the whole cr01 chassis for $55. A bit more money, but way faster shipping and this also includes front bumper and the rear cross member + body posts. The pics above use the cr01 front bumper.
