Have a Axial EXO Terra Buggy that needs some customizing? Want to be the EXO that stands out in a crowd? The folks over at Axial have a EXO RTR Baja Bug Build posted up in their blog. There really isn’t too many modifications they had to do to get from EXO to Baja, so if you are wanting to be different, head on over to their site and check the Baja Bug Build.
At a visit to Hobbico headquarters several months ago, I got a sneak peak of what some of their upcoming lineup was going to be. I got to see the ARRMA brand, the new Evader Brushless, and finally the VW Baja Bug. Everything I saw had a unique quality that made it special, and for the Baja it was the of course the body and style. Duratrax was breaking away from their mold and trying something a little different. Along with the VW license came their new ‘Get Dirty’ attitude. Did they deliver? Does the VW break the mold enough to get more people to turn some heads? Keep reading to find out..
Here’s something cool from Pro-Line. A Volkswagen Bug body that actually has fenders on it. How novel. It actually casts a much different attitude than all the fenderless beetle bodies that populate the alternative-style short course landscape. This new vision of an old body is officially licensed by Volkswagen, so you can expect all the decals necessary to replicate the look of the real thing, logos and all. A spoiler with mounting hardware, window masks, and overspray film are also included. The Volkswagen Full Fender Baja Bug body is available now at a list price of $39.95. Unfortunately it’s only made to fit the Slash and Slash 4×4 right now.
