    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.................

    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

    1/8 Scale Truck Bodies

    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.

    1/8 Scale Truck Bodies

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