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.

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?

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.

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.
