    Yeah, its like i was saying about the width of the Traxxas 4x4. The WB may be good for putting a Kyosho DRX body on it, but the wheels would stick out the side. Too bad, cause as much as i love real looking cars, the Traxxas one probably has a tougher driveline than the kyosho. Plus the parts will be available at most hobby shops.

    That body is just awful.

    Traxxas stuff is durable but I've been running my DRX for two months now without a problem.

    I'm not running on a groomed track, it's courses set up through the woods, pretty abusive.

    I took it easy at first because it was brought to my attention that all 3 diffs only had one set of spider gears from the factory for some reason (probably cost). So I ordered and installed extra gears with diff fluid of choice (7-3-5) and have been running it with 2s and 3s since with no problems.

    I've been impressed with how tough the Kyosho has been.

    ^ That sounds refreshing. The frailty of my Lazer totally put me off of Kyosho..

    I agree that the Traxxas looks like a good chassis but that body is phew..
