I have seen lots of people cut the front off of their chassis to improve the approach anglr and decided to try my own version of this. Rather than cutting off the the whole front I just cut enough to bring the stock skid/bumper guard up tight to the body and was able to use the stock mounting points. I covered the seem with silicone. I have since made a new bracket for the lights to raise them to the top of the guard. My homemade servo winch also comes out in this area, the dollar store hook is a little large, but a smaller scale one is hard to use. lol

nice work!



Some nice mods, The front XC hump is so annoying



Looks good, i did the same cutting as you do! But then for mounting a skid plate, not for mounting the bumper guard back!



Looks good, I don't know why Tamiya put that big pointy lump there, it erves no purpose other than to get caught on obstacles..
