Default 2013 Monster Beetle Xtreme!

Heres my build of what tamiya should have built...a monster beetle xtreme!

The kit started life as a blackfoot 3 kit, pretty stock except for full roller bearings and 75mm Ansmann shocks.
after a liitle wait i managed to get a good deal on the scorcher body set.
heres the initial pics of the body dummied on the chassis... I am drawing up a shortened chassis made from aluminum stock to bring it back to where it needs to be...Any body know how i can make it narrower with maybe some RPM Revolvers? will they hit the steering arms?
