Got an update on the chassis, its been stuck at this stage:

Your item is being held in Customs at 1:14 pm on March 15, 2018 in COVENTRY PARCELFORCE, UNITED KINGDOM, probably going to have to call them see what the delay is :roll:

Yeah I forgot about that one, not exactly great with all the additional fee's but all the best chassis are in the US, so there isnt really any option sadly, i keep telling myself itll be worth it when I can start building and taking shape !

The KK2 plus shipping is looking like £250 in total, so saying its caught for fee's, would be £50 VAT + £6.25 for customs duty, this is using this https://www.gov.uk/goods-sent-from-abroad/tax-and-duty as a base assuming im reading it right? Granted its a bit steep for just getting it into the count...

I had thought of the axial smt-10, its my backup plan, if getting a modclod chassis ends up impossible, first hurdle ive got to is, im having a great deal of problems even getting replies from these companies, Absolute Chaos last replied on thursday and the CPM guys havent replied at all when I aske...

Re: New to the world of Clods, looking to build a modclod as my first project, what chassis should I go for? (I'm UK bas

Yeah it would definitely be a longer wheel base project, only really heisitant due to not having much experience building from literally just the center chassis and nothing else. Is it massively difficult to get sway bars and everything else to go along with just a chassis part?

Yeah agreed, ive actually got that particaular Traxxas Bigfoot body from the frontpage, mine is a somewhat lighter shade of blue, but agreed its far too nice and expensive to risk scuffing it etc, I like the super stocker quite a bit but was aiming for something a little faster and perhaps a longer ...

Probably a mix of racing and a little bashing, not really into rock crawling at this stage, i spent quite a few months looking through several builds, and finally came across the Trigger Kings and their racing youtube vids, and pretty much set my mind on emulating this particular truck http://trigge...
