Ok. Stop hasslin me. Ill get a 1/10... jeez guys...You are limited on your upgrades. Even your kids will get tired of it quicker. Go for a 1/10 Red Cat gen 7 if you want to start cheap. They are a scaler frame and get a lexan body.
I am bringing mine to RR! Stump will probably bring his TRX4 also.
Very nice truck... especially love the hardbody 70. Yeah- I just stopped by Hobby Hangar after work today for some ideas... I'm really liking the axial Honcho "Ute"...Check out the keystone rc thread in the keystone clubhouse for an exhaustive discussion regarding RC 4x4 options.
I went the “buy once, cry once” route and got a TRX-4 kit and a 70 series body. I knew what I wanted the truck to do and based my decision on my wheeling experience and that I wanted a truck that mimicked a full size 4x4.
I have close to a grand one all tallied. But I will say that you are better served buying a quality RC the 1st time around because there are more options for hopping up the truck over a period of time.

Will any 1/10 FJ body fit on the Red Cat E10?
Ok. Thank you for the insight... I'll post up when I have this all sorted or maybe Ill just bring a 1/10 rig out to kilroys next meetingNo it will not stock you will have to shorten the track bars. I would look at the Red Cat Gen 4. The 40 body is not going to fit straight down on any of the 1/10 rigs. But that’s part of the fun. Cut down the track bars. Shorten the drive shafts. The E10 is more of a Comp. crawler the Gen 4 is more of a scale crawler.

For reference my stock E10 chassis and Tamiya FJ40 body.
I made a mold of this body and formed my orange FJ45 body in a home built vacuum former.
Very nice! Welcome to another affliction...I ended up liberating Mr. Honcho from the shelves of Hobby Hangar. He’s already climbing all over the furniture but he doesn't eat much. Took him out for a hike this morning. Wife likes him too.

It came with lots of factory spare parts for the body and links, etc. I've got one 2S lipo and a prophet charger. Pretty stoked. Well see how she holds up!Very nice! Welcome to another affliction...
Now, how many batteries do you have? I have two 3S and one 2S, and they serve me just fine.
You also need start stockpiling spare parts and special tools.
Steering servo, servo horn, and steering hardware would be my first purchases.
