Default XL Trophy Truck?

So my truck is down due to front diff bearing toasted. I've been seeing BHB's IFS/IRS build and someone else doing a solid front and rear axle build. I'd thought about selling it for a Summit since I can get almost 3 trucks in one (basher, racer with dog handling, and a crawler).

BUT I wouldn't have as much an issue with this truck if it would handle better. It's a Kit version so I have sway bar and progressive springs.

I was on YT and found some trophy truck videos and came across this:

And here is a subsequent RC build to match it:

Am I crazy thinking that you could turn a Yeti XL into a TT style? Or am I missing something REALLY obvious? lol We have a IFS and trailing arm style rear suspension already...

I like realism when it comes to how an RC handles bumps. I don't like it when smaller trucks "hop and bounce" over bumps. I'm sure it has to do with the suspension and overall weight of the trucks. The RC build TT above has full metal cage and chassis pan which helps make the suspension actually WORK and absorb bumps with some realism.

I was hoping with some shocks adjustments (either size/travel/mounting locations) you can achieve better handling/suspension travel. a Cage could be custom made (I have a welder) but a body could be tricky for fitment.

Thoughts? Opinions?
