I count 5 different bodies for the sumos....1 buggy, 2 trucks and 2 truggy ones.

maybe the losi trekker body would fit? Or a 1/18 scale crawler body?

maybe.
problem with "scale" is not all models are the same. for instance, the slash is 1/10 scale....but is the size of most 1/8 scale models. Traxxas considers it 1/10 scale of the actual trucks.
Same can be true for smaller models. One toy or rc called 1/24 isnt nessesarally the same as another.

And I cant think of other hobby grade models that are the same size, other than the losi 1/24...and those bodies are supposed to be scale and have wheel wells much to small for sumo tires to fit.

I know many find toy grade models which they take the bodies off and mount them on the losi mini and micro crawlers. maybe you could do the same?
