Default Non-Short course body for SC10

Hello

I'm finally actually getting into racing, and I bought a used SC10. The the vehicle is great, but the body is on its way out. I'd like to get a body that isn't a short course, just to be different out on the track. What kind of body should I look for?

None of my Dad's old pan car or buggy/car stuff is big enough (I'm 23, I think he's 47, but it's all from when he was a kid and up to about my age)

Hi
go to google and type in proline racing short course bodies and click on a link. Write down the model numbers of the bodies you might be interested, there are several non short course looking bodies. type the model numbers into google to see who sells them. Some of the bodies come "pre painted" but most are clear, so you'll be painting them your self or find a painter. There are lots of painters around!
hope this helps

Those are mostly short course bodies. I was thinking something like an old corvette or Monte Carlo, or el Camino. There was a Bel Air body on a 4wd short course truck at the track the other day. Was also a slash with a beetle body too.

What your looking for is 1/10th scale "Short Course body" in the description. I have not seen any short course bodies like what your looking for.

Proline has a couple (VW BUG, RAPTOR). Any body for a slash 4x4 should work fine. Traxxas rally would be cool. I use delta plastik rally body's.
