    Hmmm. I saw the preview yesterday and was quite looking forward to seeing what it was. I must say though, that new body is disappointing. It looks like a school lesson in vac forming. Maybe it’ll look better in the flesh.

    It’s not a looker is it, even dropping the body by an inch would make it look a little better.  Why always so much lift with these trucks, presumably it’s what sells?

    In my eyes it‘s a optical disaster.

    Looks like a strech-limo on a monstertruck.

    They say ‘beauty is in the eye of the beholder’ but in this case I beg to differ!

    Its all out of proportion in my opinion and not a pleasing result….. Vaterra Jordan perhaps??!! 😀 😀

    Looks like a stretch-limo on a monstertruck.

    My exact thoughts too. Paint it yellow and it wouldn’t look far off the monster school bus thing..

    The new Axial body on the other hand…  *drool*

    I agree Geoff, I’ve seen some people make that body look excellent.

    To be honest the 1:1 is exactly a stunner.

    Smaller wheels and tires and a drop in ride height would probably help it’s looks, but being long wheel base it will then just drag its belly on all sorts of things.

    Wow, good find with that photo – same colour and everything!

    The arches on the lexan body are comically big compared to the real one.
