    Yep, I know someone who was running the longer marder chassis, It made a big improvement in the handling.

    Just letting you knoe guys it's been extended from fuel tank to radio plate which is perfect for me do drop the batteries onto the chassis to keep the weight down low Here is a couple of pics of the standard Marder/Beatle/Monster Truck chassis! And the rebuild!

    a nice Asgaurd body will mount up real nice on the stretched out chassis .
    i made my own chassis outa 6.35 7075 t6 alolot and stretched it out as well .. my MB body barely mounts onto it now ..
    Anyways Looks Awesome ..
