Default 1/5 scale Nascar bodies

Years ago some up in Canada was building a Nascar body to fit the HPI Baja, Does any one have any info on them, or what happen to them. My son wants one but I have no idea where to look.
Thanks

They are willing to order idems that are out of stock usually takes 2 weeks. I would call them just to check the measurements of the body to make sure it is wide enought in the rear.

............Sorry it is not wide enough. Since your son likes Nascar maybe you can find a 1/4 scale WCM on E-Bay for a reasonable price.

Looks great, but wheel base is only 20 inches. HPI- Rovan - Great motors are 22 1/2 inch wheel base. Won't fit. Darn . I guess if I can't find a body it may come down to moulding my own. Or finding a body thats not that great of shape and using that to make my own mould.

You could get it closer by using a shorty chassis from Scorpion. http://www.davesmotors.com/scorpion-...aja-5b-5t.html
It shortens the wheelbase by 1.75 inches.
