I'm wondering if you think your truck have the right overall length and wheelbase to fit under a true 1/8 scale CORR truck body like the SC8. The Traxxas slash isn't really scaled down all that well as it is pretty stubby looking being 1/8 scale in width and height, but 1/9 scale in wheelbase and overall length. The new Pro-Line Hardcor body made to fit the Slash appears styled more like a real CORR body as oppposed to the bit more stylized stock slash body, but even that Pro-Line body has the awkward scrunched Slash dimensions. I imagine true 1/8 scale bodies will become available through the aftermarket once the SC8 is out. I suppose getting the wheelbase the correct 1/8 scale length, if it isn't already there, may go beyond what you have envisioned for this project which ephasized speed-to-market and cost reduction to capture market share, but it could impact desirability of the product.

Hey Haulin79 do you think you could make that picture a little bigger, I can't really see it.

IMHO, the cage does more than protect and look scale. One of the inherent problems with the original Losi Heavy Metal XX4 body, and to a lesser degree the Slash is the parachute effect. With the back of the body cut out for the cage to be shown, it allows the air to flow freely, therefore giving the truck (again, IMHO) better flight dynamics.

Truth be told, only time will tell. Lets see some on a supercross style track gettin' some air.
