So I had to find something to do with my 2nd fireteam that the sale provided me with. I didn't really do anything but add exb braces and yeet the body and tossed on a typhon body because I love that typhon buggy look.

Crazy how just doing that has transformed this thing into a total animal. I didn't think just changing the body would make that big of a difference but wow losing all that weight is bonkers. This thing is nasty with the TP 4070 1700kv geared 23/50.


Only thing I don't like is how easy it rolls over in the grass. Stupid easy lol, I'm going to have to lower the ride height a little or make it wider. I also want to add a wing, looks like I can fit wing mounts and still keep the rear bumper so I'm going to try that. Maybe a kraton wing? I'm not sure. It sure looks mean and aggresive as hell as is though!!

I actually debated going with the limitless body after I saw your post in my research. I really like the look of the typhon body a helluva lot more though. :ROFLMAO:

I do also like the Typhon body better.
I couldn't find a large scale Buggy body however. I had a spare JennysRC Lim body sitting here doin nothing but collecting dust.

I felt the same... I can see why you'd go with the typhon, I tried it too. If you could just scale it up somehow, but still look cool exposed. I copied SrC's limitless body idea and still think it looks pretty good and has better coverage. Not that it really matters, still gets dirty anyway. I change around the body all the time on it, maybe i'll try the typhon for a while.

@dure16 I think you can put kraton hubs that are wider? I'm not 100% sure though.

The Typhon body looks badass on there! I think it needs to be black though, brother.
You know, I think I will do that! I have a clear body already and some black paint. I actually did black for my stretched typhon with felony diffs and it looked really good.

How would you make it wider? Doesn’t it already have the wide arms?
Yea it has the arms but not the kraton hubs etc. I also have +13 mm iirc? extensions I could toss on.

Is it just me or is the Limitless body just an extended, less teardrop shaped, Typhon body?
I was thinking same thing...pretty similar

@Moirae This is somehow the best picture I have of it but regarding putting a wing on with the rear bumper, the @3d-rc.myshopify.com wing mount fits so perfectly in the rear bumper you would swear it's meant for it. It fits between the flaps and the bumper actually supports the mount a bit. Never tried the stock mount though, his are just too beautiful
