I screwed up when I was measuring mine, I wanted the Wheelbase with the hubs forward to be the same length as the SC10 and with hubs back it would be the same as the Slash.
If that's what you want , then what ever chassis your using, from the front of the chassis were the front kick plate attach's to were the rear T-plate attach's, your measurement should be
8 5/8'' long, which is the first red line, mine is 8 3/4'' as you can see in this picture.

It's all real, I did photo shop off (as you can see in the two pictures below) the White Losi & Graphite emblems, I also Photo Shopped all the screw holes and were you can see the T4 chassis bridged on top of the two Losi chassis, just to see if I could get people to believe that it was real, as in Losi really making one. I'm sorry.

Sorry Bigedmond you are incorrect.

Yes and No, I've learned that when it come to RCs, if want it and are willing to try, anything is possible, as this project is a perfect example.

I have a XXXT sitting on my shelve. I have access to Associated body mounts, bumpers, tire/wheels, ect.... Now if I could get my hands on that chassis.
Crawler all you got to do is make one, it wasn't that hard, I'll show you how it did.

I cut a old MF1 as far back as I could. Then I cut a old BK2 chassis as far forward as I could, sorry I thought I took pictures of every step of the process, but I guess I didn't, but in this picture you can see the cut lines.



I then dremeled out the Losi battery braces to make the Losi chassis flat. Then I cut the center section out of a T4 chassis that I had, and used it to bridge the two Losi half's together, as you can see a little better in this picture.



I then made some little braces to help bridge and support the two chassis at the rear, (As per the suggestion of James ''the Bussdriver'' Gallatin, thanks) as you can see in the next couple of pictures.





At the front, I needed some upright post so I could use the SC10 folding battery brace which I really like, so cut about and 1'' of battery brace and post off of another old chassis, to make the front brace and post as you can see in the next couple of pictures.





I then drilled and screwed small screws and epoxied everything together, as you can see in this picture.



I then drilled, screwed, and Epoxied all three chassis together, as you can see in the next couple of pictures.





If anyone has any questions, or wants to see how I did any of the other Mods. let me know.

L8er, Chromie.

Great looking SC truck, I have done the same thing to the TRAXXAS Rustler chasis, milled delrin block made it the length of a slash. Low cg and very bashable like the slash I call it the RUSH!

I like this idea and i have a few Losi trucks in my posession.
My ? is what did you do with the track width in the front to narrow it.
I have had ideas of changing spindles,arms etc but havent played with the
idea much yet.

On the front, all I did was cut the front axles down,both on the bearing side, and on the threaded side. I also had to thread a few extra threads , to get the nuts to tighten up all the way, as you can see here in this picture.


The measurement from the bearing race to the back of the Axel is 13.45mm as you can see in this picture, even tough the caliper is showing 13.48mm , it moved a little while I was taking the picture.
I think I maybe 1 mm wide at each end to be legal, I think they should be 12.45mm , to make the front width 296mm. I'm going to cut some new ones when I get some money.



On the rear, I found some shorter axles, that I think are off of a older Losi buggy, you can see how much shorter they are, in this next picture.
I cut the outer threads just so they would not stick out past the nuts so much. I think the rear width is perfect at 296mm.

Back on topic.....

Anyhoo, that is one sick Losi SCT!!!!! When is it being released?
I agree completely.

I have a mod Slash and I destroy the SC10s with it.

My best lap with it so far is a 14.9 on a small indoor track where the best mod 2wd buggy lap is low 13s last I looked.

I have an SC10 coming soon and I can't wait to get it going but I will be racing that in stock Slash spec and keep the Slash for mod SC. It's a great feeling to hear the announcer sound suprised that a Slash is winning every time.


ANYWAY,
That is a bad ass looking ride and very custom. I love people's sense of style and originality. VERY good job.
