Another update for my monster truck: new shaved tires and new lid. I managed to find a brand new body on ebay, and it was already painted black, with those rare window and light stickers on :D I couldn't let it go to someone else and I think I got it for a honest price. I'll probably add some stickers to it like I had on the previous black one. 11/07/2014 edit: I've added some pictures, as I've had another body done before I found the black one on ebay. It was painted by customblitz in the UK and the way the front lights were painted were not growing on me. I managed to carefully take the stickers off on the Lethal Threat body (see previous update, the link at the bottom) and stuck them back on this body. The result is not too bad, but not... perfect. But it's actually growing on me now that I took those pictures. In the first I lined up all the bodies I have used on this truck. My real favourite is the original stock TXT-1 body, but it is really battered and needed to retire. I had it on my TXT-1 it's really old. The blue is also very damaged at the back from doing wheelies without a wheelie bar... The lethal threat has paint chipping because I used wrong spray paint from local diy store (I even had tamiya spray in the post, but received the transparent body before the paint and couldn't wait. The Tamiya spray came a day after I painted the body black...). And then there's the current black body, waiting for some stickers. I think I will go for the same scheme as on the blue body.
Hope you like, as always comments welcome :)

Have wanted a shaved set of Clod tyres for the longest time. Did you shave them yourself? Have you ever considered joining Clodtalk.com? They have a monthly truck of the month competition. Looks so mean I love it!

I got them from someone over the pond in a trade. I thought about joining but always find other stuff to do. Tell you what, I'll have a look now!

Nice work...the TXT-2 is a disappointment in stock trim making the body, wheel and shock mods you've made a must to really bring it to the level it should've been from Tamiya.

I gotta jump on the 'like-shaved-clods-but-dont-own-a-set' bandwagon! I hear ya on the decals, I dont know why they didn't include them with the spare body in the kit so when a 10 pack came up from a reseller i jumped on them! Your TXT-2 is coming along great, I always look forward to your updates

Thank you guys that means a lot @Mad-Bee believe it or not there is another shell, cut the same way that I had done by someone. It looks good but... it doesn't do it for me. the front lights and grill were very different from the stock ones so I covered them.. I will add a picture or 2 tomorrow actually. They speak better. At the moment i'm thinking of using agrios stickers, the same way I had them on it when it was blue in update 1 or 2

Nice! I like that style of flames on the hood plus nice collection of txt-1 bodies you have there.
