Poll on Monster truck or Rally car

OK, Now that I have beat up my X5 body, I am looking to get a 1/24 model and fit it to my Overland chassis. Question is what direction should I go. The track I run at is converting the banked oval track for Overlands with jumps and all so I am partial to the Rally car look. BUT i really like the monster truck look and the ability to run in softer sand/longer grass with them. SO, What would you do??

I didn't vote, cause I think you should go with a baja truck, then you can swap tires from small to large and it would still look good.

i'm the sole voter(at the time) , i'm liking the baja idea. if i had another chassis i would do that. ofcourse i already have the monster pajero and rally land cruiser so i'm a tad biased

now there is another option. I could get another chassis and do both. (or a third and do all three ) Looks like I better buy a lottery ticket and win .

I also went for the rally, after seeing the escort wrc on the mini-z bar site, I'm surprised there aren't more ppl trying it!

For the Mitsu EVO, check the link below, that's the "rc car" I used to make my Subaru Impreza WRC, so I'm guessing the Lancer would fit the OL also, probably the same wheelbase and width..

I looked at some autoscale bodies for the Ol and they look too short. Really would have to do alot of dremeling to get them to fit. Hoping to get a 1/24 scale model and try that. Though I am guessing the plastic would be thiner and need reeenforcing in some high impact places.

As far as bodies, I like to Ford Focus, and the Suberu. The Sub I have seen done before so I am thinking about doing something different. The Toyota is also an option. looks like I have the makings of another poll!
