Default Body To Fit Nitro Quake

I have fitted a body that is for the T-Maxx on my Nitro Quake, it is a Pro Line Humm Vee Urban. It is made from .060 Lexan which is a real plus over the stock Quake body. The front body posts will fit ok, but you will need to modify the rear by adding a support piece across the body posts..........It looks good and also has better clearance of the tires when the chassis bottoms out with the wheels turned than the Original Quake body.................

Default 1/8 Scale Truck Bodies

From what I have seen, there aren't any! What I would recommend is find out the wheelbase of your truck and match it to the body style you want. You may have to do a liitle searching, tho, for a 1/8th scale.

Most trucks have about a 12" wb, but you can get away with a body with 11"wb.

HPI & Atomik (tower hobbies) make a couple that fit the bill. Tho, both are Ford, one is an F-150 and the other is an F-350.

Don't feel too bad, I'm looking for a Dodge Ram....one that looks realistic, that has at least an 11"wb.

Hope this helps

I did manage to find a 1/8 scale truck body. It's a Ford F-150, with a 13" wheelbase! BUT, I forgot where I saw it. I'll look for it.

I've got an OFNA Monster Pirate body on my N.Q. Got it real cheap on eBay. Looks much better than the original.
