    RE: Help

    you need to look at other bodies for 1/8 scale trucks.

    i have a tmaxx body on mine. had to trim up the wheel wells alot, but works good.

    maybe a flux body, or emaxx body. you can also make a adapter plate to raise the body mounts if needed.

    RE: Help

    Thanks. Ill look into those mentioned. Thanks for replying back so soon.

    I know this may be a dumb question, but..

    would a 3.0 or 3.5 body fit?

    RE: Help

    yes, as the chassis is the same. the 3.0 and 3.5 refer to the motor size. so, both trucks used the same body.

    RE: Help

    I found a new body on ebay. Paid about the same that redcats site offered, but lower shipping. LOL

    I also upgraded the steering servo today. I replaced the stock on with a Futaba s3001. I am impressed with te response when I steer. This is a great truck.
