Default Buggy body for 1/8 truggy?

Anyone make one? Basically you'd have a 1/7 or 1/6 buggy.

If you can find one the XTM XLB body would fit...but why if you don't mind me asking would you want to put a buggy body on a truggy?

Only if you change the flux capacitor, Johnson rods, and chrome plated muffler bearings.

No, no, no.

You have to coat your body with lemon pledge and TAG body spray. Everyone knows that.

The buggy body would be more aero, block the rear wing less, less parachute effect, weigh less, and best of all.....seal better and keep dirt out. But without TAG, your just wasteing time.

Here's the part number from hobbypeople.net


SKU 149950
Manufacturer XTM Accessories
Mfr Part Number 200602H


The XLB was 1/7 scale....ish so I wouldn't see why the body wouldn't fit a truggy chassis...

The only problem with Axe is you would have a huge group of sex craved women chasing the car around the track. You better hope they don't catch it! I still havent found the last car I did this to.
