    Nice Senton @Richman. That color combo looks great!

    You have absolutely nailed that body. Bravo. You should post a video of that Bronco in action!

    Here is my 2nd conversion of my Senton

    I just wanted to have some bigger and wider wheels. The Duratrax 1/8 buggy tires are cool but I wanted something different.
    I found and ordered the 1/8 Truggy Tires T-Apollo from Louise on the internet.

    Due to the larger wheels, I needed another body (Proline Desert Raid) and a 12mm hex hub (track spread).

    Here is the result ...

    Outstanding!

    I notice a t-bone bumper on the Desert Raid version? You know, I actually managed to destroy one of those! T-bone honored their lifetime warranty, no fuss. The 2nd one is holding up well, despite my best efforts ;)

    The Desert Raid - a beauty. But nothing can top that Bronco! It's not RC, it's art.

    thank you

    I'm a trained vehicle painter but no longer active in the industry. I try to realize myself creatively.

    Nicely done
    Is that the proline bronco body? Does it fit without modding? I would just need the extended body mounts.
    Thanks

    that's easy. buy the bodymounts from Proline for the Slash 4x4. Make the lower part of the holder slightly round, so that they fit into the Senton holder. finished...

    or buy these cheap universal mounts (for HSP, LRP, Carson ...) and adapters - that works too.

    But the Proline holders are stronger and not expensive.
