Yes it is!

It makes the CRT.5 10th scale trick size... It will wear pretty much any 10th scale truck body, but the guys that have theres made to there spec's have theres, and use jato body's, or more specific the CP

There is a "top-down" view of the prototype attached in the above link(attached the picture here as well). We have offered a direct-fit motor mount for the stock chassis for a few months as well. There are quite a few conversions already done - several threads and pictures on our forums.

Does this mean I can't use the truck's standard body with Mike's extended chassis?

Stock CRT .5 body. I woud think not. You could pick up a J-Concepts body. I'm sure a T4 or MF2 body would fit.

Yeah I run at Summit. I haven't been to Planet. You might be talking about John Marshall. I know he was down there last weekend. I would like to run down there though some time this season.

Yup it was Marshall. A good time to run here would be the end of this Month (http://www.rcracenet.com/upload/EVENT_1168.pdf). Should be a great race.

Here is my Crt.5 - it's almost done. I am waiting for my antenna mount, and I still need to get a battery. I also need to drill some holes in the battery mount to lighten it up, put a little foam padding on it and put the velcro strap on it.

I have only raced 18th scale for the last couple years and don't have any batteries other than 2/3A size, so I borrowed a Tyco 7.2v sub C battery (yeah thats right - TYCO) from a buddy of mine just so I could set the MM and get the steering servo centered and setup. After getting everything set I said what the heck and tried to see if it had enough juice to even run the thing. I was expecting it to cog, but to my surprise - it never did. I actually took it out in the street and drove it until the battery dumped - and not one cog. Anyways, here are the pics. The last one show the "please don't hit my expensive - it will burn up if punctured" battery guard. It is bent 90 deg. and keys into the notch on the bottom of the battery plate. I don't plan on using it all the time, just when racing or bashing with bigger trucks.

The stock body is pretty short. The real issue is the shocks - they are tucked up into the body, so simply re-creating the body mount holes isn't an option. The stock length crowd pleazer would otherwise look OK on the extended chassis. A 1/10 truck body will fit pretty well - rustler bodies, for example.

You crt.5 has overkill written all over it, Dave. The Plett motor and battery box are pretty extreme. Nice and compact conversion, though. Better overkill than underkill. What battery are you planning on using(asuming the TRyco pack was a temporary thing)?

Thanks Mike. I am planning on Maxamps 3S 5000mah packs, thats what the battery guard was made to fit around. With the foam padding on the battey plate, I should have about 3mm between the battery and the guard. I know it's all a little overkill, but this is going to be my only R/C for a while, so I wanted to do it right. The Tyco pack is just temporary - I just can't believe it even runs with it.

The Academy Vehicle mentioned Dave posted pix of a conversion he did. Basically you would need to machine a chassis, top deck, and driveshaft if you want it to be true truck specs.

But, for a more truggy conversion, you pretty much just need the longer suspension parts or heck, get some RPM truck rims with a wide offset, they will bolt up to the buggy no problem as the hexes are sedan sized hexes.

This Hot Bodies Truck http://www.hotbodiesonline.net/kit.p...=66501&lang=en is what was talked about in a Lipo/brushless conversion of a 1/10 4WD Truck, in this thread.

Anyone thought of a Schumacher GTRe? its a 1/8 on-road based off the GTR nitro truck. I did some checking and found out the arms are the same between them and about 100.00 worth of parts and you can convert it to an electric truck. Wheelbase wise, its the same as a GT2/T4 and its slightly narrower. It uses 14mm hexxes, But can be wsapped to 12mm traxxas style easily
