    Need a new body for my Rally.

    I am not a big fan of the Rally body, so right now I have a slash body on it. I have seen the Proline (Ford Focus I think) that looks pretty good, but I would like something different. Not as tall as teh Rally body would be good.
    Any suggestions?

    Now that is exactly what I am talking about. I am really not sure what wheels they are, I saw them and went to the counter to purchase and didn't even notice what I purchased. I was just excited to get some road tires on my car. I am still new to RCs, is that an 1/8th scale GT body?

    i bought the body off ebay http://www.ebay.com/itm/390452169928...84.m1438.l2648

    i was going to recomend getting the corvette body since you have the 1:1 but they have a longer wheelbase http://www.ebay.com/itm/Kyosho-Infer...item35c2249d32

    Was looking the other night and thinking of ordering up a Protoform body for my Rally. That looks pretty good Going to order one up for sure now with my next order.

    lol, by all means do it.
    some ppl that have converted their slashes to an onroad..... uses this body so it should have the same wheelbase. fits perfectly on mine with 12.9 inches of wheelbase.

    I found a C6R that is a bit pricey, but I think my wife will like it. She has a cheap RC C6 right now that is pretty much useless, I can paint this one the same for her.

    Thanks again!

    For those putting an onroad body on the rally and running on paved surfaces...From what I understand, the rally is very competitive with 1/8 on road gt class cars
    Cheap, Fast, Reliable. Pick 2.

    Here's the DP8 body Djbrun. Note: not reamed or mounted and needs to be lowered a bit still. Give you an idea though of what it looks like.

    Now that looks like a body that would be a little easier to mask up specially on the sides/doors. Doesn't look like there is many bends/bumps etc... Might pick one up as well Is that the PF8?

    Man that DP8 body looks good in all black. I tried something different with my last one and didnt like it. But the one I have here laying around is gunmetal with a bit of green and looks decent.
