SCX10 is a 1.9 scale truck. That is the tire size is 1.9. The defender body will not look scale with 2.2's on it. If thats what you want. The axles are great axles to start out with. I would use them until they break them move to something more scale. Keep the truck simple for your first build and try to improve on it gradually. You will learn more that way. You might have a problem with that body as the wheel base( opening to opening) is shorter then the wheel base of the scx10.

it will count as 1.9", the wheel size is what we base this on - the kit comes with 1.9" beadlocks, unlike the AX10 which comes with 2.2" beadlocks.

I think you will probably keep the scx10 axles, and get it to fit in under the landy body. might need a wheelbase adjustment to get it to work but should be ok for axle width on 1.9"s.

good luck with your build

Kitcrazy Mate,

Firstly the scx10 axles are wide to fit properly under the landy hardbody. All landy builders here have used the TLT axles to give it the proper stance. Do as search on the 1.9 forums and there are about 5 great builds on the landy. I have a Landy90 hardbody as well, just waiting for a scale chassis right now and figuring out my tranny situation. I will be using TLT axles, RC4wD Landy wheels. Cheers

Heres a link to a few

The above link is what a came across, but there are a few more out there that I have missed. So my apologies to the great builders! There are a lot of great builds on this forum and you really need to comb through all the pages to find the rest.

Look for Greasy Pete's thread, there is a thread in the buy/sell forum, and he is getting some scale chassis made up for the Landy body. I am waiting for his next run of chassis.
