Default Wanting to build a mud truck

Ok guys Im wanting to build a scale mud truck and for some crawling. I want it to be straight axle and BIG I plan on running Imex jumbo Swamp dawg tires. I just dont know what chassis to use so I was wondering if yall could help. I was thinking of buying the redcat 1/10 truck off of ebay for a start and changing the electronics.

You could start with an scx10 kit and put 2.2s on it. One thing to keep in mind is you will probably want to use bushings and rubber sealed bearings, as they will hold up best to the dirt. My scx10 works great for mudding and snow bashing. The only major things I have changed is I put on axial alloy shock bodies and soft associated b44 rear springs, and weighted the wheels.
