Okay cool thanks! Will look into an evader body and thanks for the recommendation on the washers.
EDIT: HMMMM....do you think i may be able to fit a rustler body?
I think it should be possible. the major difference for both the evader and rustler bodies is that they use a single rear body post in the center of the body. The XTG uses 2 rear body posts. the trick is to have those posts not be to far out so as to end up in the "shock tower" part of the body. the part over the rear wheels that pops up.
If you convered the XTG to use a single rear body posts that would help.
