    Different bodies

    I have not found any really good alternate bodies for the xo-1. the only ones that are remotely close from my research is the FG modelsport touring car they are a 400mm wheelbase and right at 300mm wide they consider them 1/5 scale though. Now I am not 100% on this it may be from an older model, but they still offer parts for the older models. Some of you have suggested the 1/7 ofna body has anyone actually tried this body yet? I found the specs for it and it seems to be short wheelbase on it is 365mm and width is 290mm from what I have found. Does anyone else have any other suggestions or first hand knowledge of what fits with some or little or no modification?

    I own the kyosho-corvette-body- just tried it: to short by quite an amount, it wont cover the front-bumper and the rear diffuser- I think no way to make a fit.

    Im looking for more of a LeMans style body or DTM with something like the Austin Martin DB9 or corvette or that link with the porsche. Im not really a fan of the lambo but it does look really good.
