RC Car Action - - HOW TO PICK AND MOUNT A TRAIL TRUCK BODY -

You may find a body that has the look you’re go­ing for but the wheel­base is slightly off by a few mil­lime­ters. You can still use the body by trim­ming the wheel wells a lit­tle larger to make up for the short. You don’t have to stick with bod­ies de­signed for trail trucks; for ex­am­ple, you may find a body de­signed for a mon­ster truck like the Tamiya Clod Buster that has the right wheel­base to work on your truck. So don’t limit your­self—think out­side the body. You may just come up with some­thing that will blow peo­ple away!

When you pick a body that doesn’t have the same wheel­base as the truck that you’re putting it on, you may have to trim the wheel wells slightly to make it fit bet­ter.
