    Bodies

    Has anyone found a different body for this truck yet? I would like a camaro or trans am body if possible. I found a 200mm body but not sure where they are measuring axel to axel or bumper to bumper. This is my first r/c car and just bored with the truck body. Also can you convert this truck to a merv? and would you know what parts are needed? Thank you

    I'm going to assume when you say truck that you have a kyle b version? There is a camaro body on ebay, but it doesnt come with any decals or anything. Also look at mcallister racing, i know they have some bodies that fit. there is also the proline focus, and the protoform tornado, check out the gallery for pics of them. and you can always get a different traxxas body for it (mustang, rally, fiesta) and paint it to your liking.
    Yes It can be converted to a merv, there are some threads on how-to and what parts are needed just search rally to merv conversion.

    Here are pictures of the Focus and Tornado bodies.





    The Camaro body on e-bay is from Team Blue Groove and is a replica of the Monster Energy, West Coast Customs limited edition Camaro Rally. As Skitlerz said, you have to cut your own window masks so that can be a pain. Otherwise I've found TBG bodes to be of OK Quality. Not great, but not terrible.

    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    TBG is still around. They have vintage bodies for sale on e-bay right now. But in terms of painted bodies, you'll be limited to traxxas bodies sold on e-bay or custom bodies guys have painted on e-bay. And you'll be paying TOP dollar for them. For about $25 you can buy a clear rally, fiesta, focus or Tornado body and for $5 you can buy a can of paint. Most bodies on e-bay sell for $40 or more plus shipping.
