It would be cool lookin' for sure. I need to get back to work on my 32 Ford pickup scx24. Maybe when I'm done with the safari rig. One thing you need to be carefull of if you try it, is body width. Everyone remembers wheel to wheel length wise, but all that stuff still has to squeeze under the hood.
If you look at those pics, I think the white one is sitting on a Traxxas Bandit chassis, and the gold one is on the Associated SR10. The SR10 has a shorter 10.94" wheelbase. I am kinda digging the look with the rear tires just a bit forward in the wheel opening. I have never had either chassis, so I am wondering which would be best.I digging the Pro Line Pinto body! I owned 2 Pintos in my life. They were both reliable, cheap and fun! Back in the 70's Pinto's ruled the Pro Stock ranks in drag racing. Gapp and Roush (the same Roush in NASCAR and road racing) and Bob Glidden had 'em!
Go to a local oval race and the Mini Stock class was dominated in numbers by Pintos. I'm gonna snag one of these bad boys!
