Default Univrrsal Mud Guards

Sorry to bother you folks but you all are the library of RC.
I have looked and looked. I would love a pair of rear "mud guards", "axle guards", whateverr the proper name. I need a pair or those things that keep crap out of the rear axle, a-arms, whatever.
My problem is I have a Tamiya 801Xt, and good old Tamiya doesn't offer one so I guess I'm going the best fit route.
I can grind away at an Xtreme Racing, Hot Bodies, D8 Carbon Fiber Mud Guard, and I think it will work.
So that's it:
Wanted: Rear Mud Guards for a Tamiya 801XT
Good Luck to All This Season
Chris

With a little modification, the Mugen MBX6T mud guards will fit. Closest match that I have ever seen.

Its really simple to make a set from Lexan, or a sheet of hard plastic, or even carbon

I make mine from empty 1 gallon motor oil jugs (black in color) I got a whole season out the last set I made.They are pretty much indestructable.

use one of your old bodies it will match your paint with no effort plus you can make them custom shape and sizes way cool. you will have to pre drill your rear arms and use small screws to attach good luck
