Default Baja Beetle

Hi guys, haven't posted on this forum in a while and even then it's mostly in the Micro section. But anyway I saw the Pro-Line Beetle body and new I had to have it. I don't own a Slash.... or even a SC truck but that wasn't gonna stop me from building one. I started with an HPI RS4 MT electric and swapped out the control arms with a set from the Super Nitro Rally. After I got the truck the way I wanted it I bought a Beetle. Since the truck wasn't long enough for the Slash version, I bought the Baja Beetle for the short chassis T/E-maxx. Then the fun began, I did use part of an RS4 rally interior for a driver/co-driver glued to a sheet of white lexan. I also used Super Nitro Rally Wheels with cut and shut Pro-Line Dirt Hawg tires, the wheels and tires are temporary...... on with the pics.
