Default Vw split window baja

So I got two body's when i bought a ss

Had a baja I was making and was not pleased with the look
So I put the new body on this chassis

Painted it and wanted to see what the motor would look like


And then change the chassis now a little wider(more room for electronics) and I got a little idea turned the trans around and put a duratrax vw motor and it looking better need rims and tires and more scale details but as she sits now

That's some pretty wild camber you've got there!

Yeah the camber is a little crazy but I wanted that look of a baja that has positive camber when sitting fully up in the back

I got some more building materials so I started in the rear to help finish off the duratrax vw motor
The chassis before I start

This is what I'm doing


I have a few more pieces for the motor
Also wanted to say this is a junk parts build, hodge podge car has
Slash trans carriers and shafts shorten, front end is from a losi jr?, rear arms nitro rs4 rears, chassis is a old nitro car that was given to me.

So I did a few more things to the beast
Tried to make my own shock towers from stryene and a front
bumper but will see how that works but anyways

Still going to try to use the Porsche rims but still waiting on the fronts and I'm going to try the tamiya tires all the way around when my rims show but did some more details also

Let me know what you guys think good or bad.
I think it's time to learn to braze so I can rebuild it better but glue and plastic is so easy to work with quietly

Sorry but I got them when I bought my sand scorcher but I researched the split and it looks to be a kamtec body. The plastic yellow one I think is a proline rock crawler body and the one on the scorcher I have no clue. I will give you dimensions when I get home from work.

Been just eyeing my projects lately cause i found out that the misses is expecting our first child so that has taken the bulk of my time. Also im cleaning out and selling my old home after being robbed last October. But any who.
So got most of this little bugger sorted out it spins the tires well but id like a little more top end but need to make it less likely to want to tip when turning. Also need to address the wheels i have to get a different set of alloys to match the front just need to figure out proper offset
