Traxxas 1979 Ford F-250 on Stampede

Post by tecnica2001 » Sun Nov 19, 2017 2:34 pm

I really liked the Bigfoot 1 body that Traxxas released, but I immediately thought of putting it on the Super Clod, with the Bigfoot scheme, but decided to save the Bigfoot decals for a future Blackfoot.....

So I bought the body for the Stampede that I had, painted it yellow and added a Tamiya Holiday Buggy driver in it, along with the Trenchers and the lowered body.

that thing looks awesome. The detail work on the body looks beautiful. Even a chevy guy would have to admit that the realism in that body looks good 8)

I like how it fits your pede...could you tell me center of wheel well to center of wheel well measurements approximately?

Thats the best looking 'pede I've seen! Body fits it very well.

Thanks,

I'd like to get a set of 1.9 scale wheels and some tall 1.9 scale tires on it, need to find the right offset.
