So technically its a different vin now, so can it win ROTM again?

I talked to Ian (imamonstertruck) and we both agreed that although you have a new body on your meego, it is still the same truck underneath and so cannot be eligible for ROTM again so long as you have it. You opted to swap the whole body rather than do body work to it by cutting out the bad and welding in the good, but its still just rebuilding the same truck. Sorry, but congratulations again on winning when it was orange and also congratulations for getting it back together again.

No worries, It was more of a joke than anything, but it still has the ROTM badge on the back glass. Only part from the original body that's left. I have another Meego I can get to ROTM standards anyway. Lol

I'm glad I'm almost done with this myself, just want to get back on the trails with it.
