    Putting it back together, from new chassis to missing cap screws, was a ton of fun. Once I completed the rebuild, I thought to spray the body matte black. Love its newe look.

    The first picture shows it before the crash. The pictures after, show how it now looks. 20171130_223652.jpg 20180131_160140.jpg 20180131_160211.jpg 20180131_155942-1.jpg

    That's the stock pipe that comes on the Redcat Rampage XR, which this vehicle is. I spray-painted the header and pipe with high temp paint.
    To convert it to a truck, more or less, I changed the rally bumper to the Redcat Rampage MT bumper, got rid of the heavy rally body, and replaced it with the body of an Associated 1/10 scale nitro truck, and jacked up the suspension for off-road running.

    It looks great! I like seeing different ideas adopted to models.
