Ok it should work now lol. Yea I don't like the bug bodies but if that's what I got to use then so be it lol. I have tried a chevy pickup body that didn't work and I've tried a few others but none of them seem to work out without hacking them so bad that it looks retarded lol

I would recomend you look at a different battery setup. Either pick up some LiPo's or look for a different location. Also look into some better tires. As for bodies find one you like and slap it on there. You will have to trim it a bit of trimming but a bit of rubbing is prity comon with these crawlers.

if your looking for a comp style body... look at the losi comp crawler body... also you need to upgrade your tires... Panther's cougar tires are good for standard height tires... if i had a complete set i'd give u some ... make sure you got some weight in your wheels too. in the vid it didn't look like there was any squat to the tires, but that could have been from the foams...
if your gonna comp it your gonna want to limit some of that articulation... :lolup: :lolup: :lolup: there a line between to much and too little... :stirpot: :stirpot: :stirpot:

As far as batt location I found with it on top I can't go as vertical without torque twist shaftin me lol. With the articulation I awlays thought it was better to articulate as far as possible to keep all wheels on the surface for more traction. Is that wrong is it better to articulate maye half of what it does now and let it pull whatever tire off the ground. Lol I have been crawling for a lil over a year and can't seem to dial it in I am appreciating all the input tho
