Looks good! I have a brushless E-Maxx and it needs a new tire/wheel set. I was looking at either the Tech 5/Trencher combo, or the Desperado/Trencher combo.

not because it makes a lot of sense but because I can! They would look nice with a white/orange strip body too

I don't really follow Traxxas stuff, haven't seen that one yet. I really like the idea of a roll cage on the outside of the body....that's real genius!

Now to figure out a way to do that with my MT and nylon rod. (yeah right someday maybe on my long list of potential projects )

An external cage would be great since the cost of the large scale bodies is so high.

+1 on the roll cage...it is awesome. But it works for a 1/10th scale....so probably not on a 35lb. 1/5 scale

Well now you need to go look at this thread:

http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1333642

It's called a Tonka summit. It's an FPV system put into a 70's Tonka land cruiser which is then dropped onto the summit platform. I've done mine with en emaax complete with an Indiana Jones ken doll size driver

love the summit, very cool... i've been planning on a brushless summit myself. i have a revo 2.5 converted to brushless and a brushless e-maxx also, both are so much fun and great for letting my daughter and friends run. i also jus got the same wheel/tire combo you have, but it's way to big for my revo, looks like i need a summit to use them on
