From looking at the pictures and knowing the width is only a couple of inches. I think it could work. Wheelbase wise it would be a bit longer. But would still be willing to try it. Unless someone is going to make some sort of oval car body for it in the near future. Like a Nascar style body, or a Dirt Latemodel. I think that would be cool.

With those, do you start it, and then put the body on, or is it an electric starter?

nice work big-al

any chance of you posting some pics with the body off??

it would be nice to get some clear pics of how your body mounts are set up.
to get an idea of how high the body is mounted in relation to the chassis


cheers

Default Couple Questions

Where would I get the body, where would I get those tires, where would I get the decals, about how much would it all cost, and does this project work with a baja 5b or 5t? This looks absolutely awesome and was looking for another style of racing for my baja. And would this body work with my OBR 30.5cc reedcase with 3- speed transmission? Don't want to start sinking money into a project that wont fit on the car i already have.

The bodies and paint schemes look great, are you making these bodies. I don't have a 1.5 scale but if I did that would be how I would want it to be.

........... I don't believe Big Al is making them any more. A few years ago I purchased one from Daves Discount Motors. I had to return it , the lexan was not cured properly and the body had air bubbles all over. I sent it back and got my money back. Reading on the internet I notice quite a few people got bodies that had air bubbles in them. Shortly after Daves Discount Motors stop carrying them.
