Default ta04 + df03 = ???

hey,

here is a buggy i made simply by joining the ta04 with the df03 , the reason i did this is that the df03 chassis used to break (replaced it 3 times) , the diffs strip every run, lipo batteries dont fit, and poor motor ventilation ......so i thought y not turn it into a belt driven df03 , so thats when i got out my old ta04 and started combining them together ,


here how it is now , i still need to get new suspention(front crt.5) and find an alternative bumper coz the stock tends to dig in the sand

just got some new parts for it

crt.5 aluminum front shocks
crt.5 high down force wing
modified the front bumper
modified the chassis to allow more suspension travel
a fan on the mm esc

but ill have to replace the steering assembly to aluminum theirs alot of play in the plastic , also the ta04 caster block limits the suspension travel so ill have to return to the df03



does anyone know any buggy bodies that will fit the chassis ??

Nice build. I was thinking of doing the same thing.. building a TA04 truck using the Ford F-150 / Chevy S-10 body. What parts from the DF03 are you using? Can you give me a parts list?
