    1/16 models - same chassis?

    I am thinking of getting the Boss 302 VXL, because I like the street scale look. My slash 4x4 platinum has a Raptor body on it. Are the rally, fiesta and boss chassis the same, and will pro-line's camaro gs body, made for the rally, fit the boss version?

    Yes, regardless of which body the 1/16 street cars come with they are all the same car. Except brushed and brushless.

    Across the 1/16 line there are very few differences.
    1. motor(brushless/brushed)
    2. esc(again...different depending on brushed/brushless)
    3. shocks/springs
    4. rockers(only different on the Summit)
    5. arms/axles(longer on the Summit/Revo and the Summit has a slightly longer wheelbase due to different rear arms than the Revo)
    6. body mounts/bumpers/body
    7. tires/wheels
    8. pinion/spur gears

    To fit the Proline Camaro body you should only have to re-adjust the body mount posts...and possibly trim the foam under the front bumper.

    Even the shocks themselves are the same... the only differences being that the road cars have spacers in them and the Summit has a different piston.
    Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.

    basically all you need is the front foam bumper/body mount/skid plate. like this, .

    i run a slash in the winter,

    and i run it as a camaro in the summer.

    of course wheels are a plus.
    I'm not krazy. My mother had me tested.

    I believe he asked if the Rally, Fiesta and the Boss Mustang were the same.

    Ok...in that respect...yes...they are the same.
    Just different body pin heights.
    (except that the Rally is brushless,Fiesta is brushed,and Boss 302 is available either way)
