Default "Stage 4" Class Monster Truck Chassis Options

Was recently at the Jconcepts Monster and Mega tour and while I wasn't able to stay long with three kids in tow, I do want to get a monster truck. I noticed that ahead of the event there was a "class 4" group. What platforms do people typically use for this? I like the SMT10 for the scale looks but from all I read it's a bit on the fragile side. What is the chassis pictured below?

Looks like Traxxas Slash 4x4 with monster truck conversion.
Phat-Boy and Buckland like this.

Ah, thanks for the link. Didn't realize it was a conversion kit.

Is there an alternative chassis/platform that people like for this purpose?

You could probable convert any similar 4x4 sc chassis to run those wheels/tires. Body mounting might be tricky, but if you're not afraid of making something it shouldn't be too difficult.

Edit: The front hubs would likely need to fit inside the small 2.6in clodbuster sized wheel, which might be tough with most current SC platforms
