Yes, that is the RT6 jconcepts body I believe. I fit a Proline Bulldog RT6 on mine. Little modification with a heat gun to get over rear shock tower. Make sure to get mid motor.

Not a close shot but all I have, the RT6 Jcon fits great, I modified my rear tower and cut the brace on the top so the body would sit in between the tower. Have done many many races and no issues with the rear tower breaking.

Looking good. Like your color schemes!! I have a rear carbon fiber shock tower and its cut lower. That little plastic brace on the stock I think is worthless anyway. Before i switched towers that little brace was cracked and I didn't even know it. LOL. Who knows how long I ran with it like that.

Raced mine at the Short Course National at Coventry last Sunday (they accommodate Stadium Trucks too) and it was the first time this year I've completed every race I've started, up until now I've broken down at least once at every race meeting I've been to. Sunday was different though as the DEST210 was very reliable, just issues with handling meant i was at best 1.5 seconds off the pace of the two T5m's in front of me. No matter what fronts I used i just over steered everywhere. Decided I need a half reasonable transmitter, or at least one that I can turn the steering rate down on...that's what everyone else seems to run

Glad u had a great day of racing. Hope you get the steering figured out and pass those T5's. If your running stock steering try the furthest hole toward the rear on the inside linkage.

A weird sort of day practising today, started off on a damp track and at the end of the straight it was like I ran out of range so carried on around for a few minutes just to be sure it was and it was, with a new transmitter/receiver. Repostioned the receiver away from the motor a bit more (I knew it was a long shot but worth a try) and that didn't work either so put my old gear back in. On the track it was handling terrible but i thought I'd struggle on and get used to the track conditions a bit more. After a few minutes a driveshaft popped out, refitted and carried on and within a lap the same thing happened then a third time. After a quick look a noticed the rear arm had broken around the hinge pin. I replaced the arm and the over steer I'd suffered since building the truck had gone...only thing I can think of is that the wishbone had been cracked for awhile but not broke and certain conditions would make it twist and bend slightly a certain way affecting the steering.

That's strange about the radio.. Usually tracts aren't large enough to loose signal. Wonder if u got a bad receiver.

About the rear arms. I have had that happen a few times myself. I went to the steel wire twisted around the arm, works great.

I have been running on 1/8th tracks but all the same there shouldn't be a problem with range as 3 other people I know haven't had a problem with same gear so it must be either tranny or receiver so I guess I'll have to get another receiver to see if its that.

After I found the broken arm I knew then I'd have to do the mod for it when i can find some suitable wire

Getting some tire/rim run on front of front A-arms. Are you guys grinding down the arms a bit to make more clearance?? Trying to get more steering

Thanks

More steering, I'm still trying to shed steering, although I've finally found some tyres that give me understeer

I know what you mean though about the wheels catching the arms and have been wondering if that is causing any issues like if one wheel is slowing up faster than the other is it likely to cause the truck to oversteer.

What I might do is move the ball up on the servo arm so it doesn't steer as far.

Over the weekend my RT6 body arrived. I've rough cut the body to start trying to fit it. Overall it looks like it should fit well once I raise up the front body posts.

I've asked a body maker over here in the UK if he can make some bodies but I'm still waiting to here back from him. Think they'll work out too expensive anyway but it's worth a try
