Traxxas Stampede will fit and some people have had luck with the T-Maxx size.

I know the stampede fits well but there is a limited choice of bodies unless you want a hummer body and I personally can't stand them... I have used t-maxx bodies in the past but they are a bit large and the wheels don't line up well.. I am waiting for a proline crowdpleazer body that I ordered to show up and we'll see how that fits...

crowd pleazer 2.0 seems to fit just fine. Maxx bodies have a bit too long of a wheelbase. They might fit the magnum or the JT chassis though.

losi xxx-t shells fit too, pretty much any of the smaller or electric mts shells will fit.

some 280mm wb hpi supersize shells will work with the rally too, with a bit of chopping...

been a while since i spammed...

Thought I would let you know that the Atomik shells for the Schumacher Menace fit fine aswell. I believe they are listed as Tmaxx sized but they are fine for the CEN.

For my chevy I got red and white paint and painted it like the stock ones but the bumper and front end I just painted them red but still turned out really nice. I will have to get pics and put them on. My cam is lighted by light so they will be really dark.

I would say pretty much any 1/10th scale size truck body will fit.

I got hte body yesterday for the MT2... It appears to be sized for and associated rc10gt.... the fit is very good.. did take an hour of careful measuring and fitting before cutting out for the correct shape and especially wheel fit... Those Maxx Wheels are huge... I will be painting on saturday evening or sunday morning and will post pics as soon as I am finished...

tried to paint the body yesterday in the 90 degree heat and came out terrible... will have to strip it off and do it again.. not a big deal... the body fit is great... looks just like azzmans just not the same design... will post pics later in the week... not going to show the bad paint job.... masking doesn't work well when its toooo hot.. kept pulling off... maybe I won't try something so complicated[:@]

I went and got the Crowd Pleazer GT from Proline and I think it looks great on the Fun Factor. I decided I wanted a plan paint job and I wasn't thinking after I finished painting it too take a picture of it. So I just took one now after a run at the track
