How to mount SC10 bodies to an Arrma Senton 4×4 MEGA

I have a stash of bodies in my shop (and were this not an RC forum that would sound like a confession…) and one of my favorites is my Carl Renezeder Lucas Oil RTR body. I know it is nothing special but it was the shell that came with my first SC, an original SC10, back in 2009 and seeing it takes me back to when I was new to SC. I bet I have a full GB of photos of that body in various locations from the first year that I had the truck. Fast forward to now and I have a Senton 4×4 MEGA sitting on my bench and I can’t help but think of how many people are going to have those same experiences with this truck. The excitement of opening the box for the first time, the smell that comes from breaking the seeal on the outside, the nervousness before their first run, its a really immersive experience that I still feel every time I open a new kit. After running the truck in its stock form for more than 40 packs, I decided to see what bodies would fit to change up the look a little.

The SC10 shell fits the Senton nearly perfectly:

The only “modification” needed to make the shell fit was to flip the rear body post around 180 degrees. The body post holes are tight but they do line up and fit.
