    It's almost too late to call this a build log.
    Started out with a beat up Typhon roller which I wanted to truggify and a Shelby GT 350 shell that was meant to go on my Outcast.
    Had a lot of Outcast parts in my spares box, found Talion 2018 shock towers on eBay and decided to build this thing completely from parts.

    Now it's almost finished... IMG_20180206_212623.png IMG_20180206_211427.png

    Will post more details later

    Too low for my taste, and although body has a nice paint, not digging the car monster truck look.

    Thats just my opinion. It does look like a very well built project, and I bet you make a post on CL it sells quick.

    It almost a perfect fit in the front, but the rear is a different story. Had to cut away quite a bit because of the short wheelbase of that 1/10 body.
