Modifying the Monster

i tried searching the forum for this and the parts database but didnt find anything useful. i want to modify the front and rear suspension arms on the monster. i came across some GPM delrin suspension arms for the overland that look like they may fit. so my question is are the lower suspension arm lengths compatible between the overland and the monster? i saw pictures of both the monster and overland arms and the i know they are different parts but it seems the lengths are very similar and only difference is the monster stock suspension arms are beefier. i have the stress that i am referring to the LOWER arms, not the upper arm links.

I think the shop http://shop.tinyrc.com/ has the delrin lower arms for the Monster in stock.

thank you. i've read that the overland chassis and the monster chassis are one and the same. i'm interested in installing the smoke grey OL chassis with the gold terminals onto the monster. this should be a direct fit correct?

Yes, the main chassis is the same. The only difference would be just the battery clips are not made for the "tank" parts. Your other question, I think the Monster links are just a small bit longer than the Overland links. I could be wrong on that one.

Yes... monster links are a bit longer than on overland. On the other hand that makes modifying OLs quite fun, since the OL chassis can be made longer quite easily...

You can use dubro captured ends with lunsford titanium turnbuckles on the monster. makes changing stance (lower suspension bar pins) without chaning the angle of the front and rear gearboxes a snap.
