Wheels, tires, rear tire carrier, and complete roller!

One of the nice features here is the wheel hex that is held on by a grub screw.

This next set of pictures shows how the body looks sitting on the chassis and then how the roll cage is mounted and how the side mirrors are installed. Note that on things like the side mirrors that you have to drill the holes for them to mount and there is no indication as to where that is on the body. This actually true with all of the mountings, the body posts and roll cage are not pre-marked with indentations like some bodies are.

Now the really fun part! Mounting the fenders. Again, as with the mirrors, there is marking on the body for where to drill holes, the best I did was to use the interior mounting bracket as a guide to mark the approximate locations of the holes.

Now for pics of the nearly completed body and the mounting of the hard top. What I did to mark the screw locations for the hard top was to paint the mounts (on the roll cage) with silver paint and then set the top in place and press down so that the paint would mark the inside of the top.

Another way to avoid this is to set the body up for mounting and all installations before painting so that you can mark the outside where the protective film is; that would solve some of my issues....but

It looks like a quality axial product once more
But, one would think they'd make a little bit more scale axle housing?
It's almost four years (i think) since the first axial with that design?

That's very odd. You'd think that would be built in like most of the Axial bodies. Has to be a pita.

But it also means you can use the body on other projects, without having indents for holes you're not going to drill

Mine came today though I ended up going for the RTR one instead. Anyone know why only the kit version has the roof with it? I'm most likely missing an obvious point.

It is a PITA if you paint the body before you line up all the mounts as I did. Had I paid more attention I would have drilled all my holes prior to painting.

Probably just another way of differentiating the two from each other. I think the RTR has different wheels.
