    Got a Mercedes CLK Rally 1/8 Scale Kyosho Gt rc car Body For free -Almost fits my 4x4

    As it says I Got a Mercedes CLK Rally 1/8 Scale Body For free (someone fiberglassed the inside.

    and the wheel base is so close to a Slash 4x4

    so i took the body mounts off, and lowered the suspension(alot) so the body would fit better.

    Put 17mm adapters on with reg wheel nuts, rims dont go wide enough.
    Then put XO-1 adapters on, and closer, than XO-1 tires , and almost perfect width.

    But XO-1 17mm adapters dont fit the 4x4 properly, so they are against the pins.


    Pics show progress

    ^^^ While nicely done, I can't say am a really big fan of the OFNA bodies.. They look out of proportion and chubby. Maybe it's something I'll need to get over as I've been wanting to buy a 1/8 road car. I've been researching bodies, and the Kyosho's are about the only ones that look true to scale. Even then their selection is limited to the Aston, Audi A8, Corvette and the Ceptor (modified McLaren F1)....


    Heavy D, is that a X-01 I spy in the background?

    Yes, I have 2 XO-1's.
    1 is near stock, and the other is heavily modified, thought I could build a cheap roller, but my electronics didnt work the way I wanted.
    I am also building a 1/4 scale enzo(its partially in the background), from a MGT 4.9 and a T-maxx, having trouble with width and the MGT tranny, my 2 1/2" motor is tooo big to fit where the nitro was, so might have to go with the tmaxx tranny, but doesn't fit in the MGT chassis that good.

    careful picking any of those Kyosho bodies, all of them that you mentioned are 360mm wheelbase unless your planning of using them other than the slash 4x4 or Rally.

    Ya didn't know where to post my modifying of the Enzo, due to it was classified as a toy grade.
    And then using parts from several different makes and models.

    Thinking of using a XO-1 transmission for it - could simplify things for me, other that I did want a 2 speed tranny.

    I seen a corvette body on tower hobby that has the same wheelbase as the one I have.

    Im still going to use the one I have and see how it goes.
    Body mounts will be easy, just need really short ones to go straight on the shock towers.
    FYI - And the front and rear bumpers are off for the body to fit, and the original 4x4 body mounts to the shock towers are off.

    Thanks, that's good to know... No I was wanting to get a straight out 1/8 chassis like a GT2 Inferno.
