    I had got it years ago from guy but side chassis plates were cut he made rock crawler with it. So like 5 years ago ttr still had set of side plates he let me scoop from Him. Ttr is awesome to deal with I love my ttr stuff figured my centurion is built so time for its lil brother

    Very Nice! Keep it as original as you can I say. I have a Centurion ready to be shipped from the states, as well as a Ripper Pro NIP, so looking forward to having the TTR Trifecta haha.

    And thank you tremor n centerion always been amongst my favorites but it's taking a lot of work and time and thanks to the help from TTR few years back n having a set of side plates. And for life of me don't know how any one could cut it to those!

    Completely agree, I could not bring myself to chop a chassis such as this, but each to their own. If the previous owner was a crawler, then he or she had a goal in mind i guess.

    Nothing wrong with the bajas, looks great. What shocks are you running on this truck?

    I will try to do some test fitting tonight on my Tremor when I get home from work. I have some 1/10 Maxx sized bodies I can test, as well as some slightly bigger 1/8 truck size bodies made by OFNA. Will post some pics for you to show how they fit.

    I personally think the EMAXX or 1/10 size body is the better fit. See what you think. The larger body is to suit an OFNA Dominator or OFNA Titan...

    It's coming along nicely. I think the baja tires look great on it. I have always wanted a TTR chassis..

    The original Tremor was designed with the 13" WB Parma Ford body in mind but will work with other long WB bodies like the EMaxx bodies.

    The Centurion frame rails were about 1 3/4" shorter and will work with most normal 10-11" WB bodies.
