Default Clod body vs. super clod?

The body pictured on tower hobbies website shows no hole in the hood for a blower, but some other sites do.

Are there actually two different bodies available? Other than the hood, are they virtually the same?

Thanks.

All the same. It's there, just washed out in the photo.

Been ages since Ive looked at my superclod body(in a storage shed) that I may be wrong,but I believe the opening in hood is an option you have to cut out yourself

The measurement of the clod bed is about 7 5/8" long. My K10 short bed is 78" long. So, does that mean the cloud body is actually a 1/10 scale short bed?

The clod body is not really an accurately scaled model but I would say that it is closer to a 1/12 scale long bed. Check the cab length compared to your k10 for a better idea of scale.

I did a Clod build once and went with 1/11 scale after some measurements. Not accurate but close.
