I wanted to add a truck body to my typhon so I could run a t to t brace. Also wanted to be able to switch back and forth to the stock body no t to t with little effort. This is by no means a finished product but I went to my favorite dirt mound and had a trial run. Other than a little body trimming I think it is starting to come together.
The blue foam is great stuff. A lot of it gets thrown away at work and I grab it when I can. Extremely light weight but tough. Like styro foam but less annoying, cuts like butter and no mess. I landed on the lid a couple times today and it seamed to sopport well.
This thing is just such a great car trugified. Much lighter than the big arrmas and flies like a dream. I run it mostly on lighter weight 4s packs. Wheelies all over the place.
I’ll add another photo when I paint the body and if I change anything.

Is the foam so that if you land on the lid the body doesn't get crushed?

Well, the paint job will mostly look like a 3rd grader did it but I’m getting better...

Yeah, we’ll see. These bodies are pretty tuff and this is not the 10lb Kraton so it may not need it. It looks like it adds a lot of weight up high but it weighs like nothing.
Also like the truck body idea for when it rolls. With the Typhon stock body once it rolls it rarely ends up on the wheels.
