    Pro-Line makes some nice ones. If you're looking for a Camaro check out HPI's bodies(<-- Click!). I think those will fit.

    And welcome to our world. It's a ton of fun.

    Sorry. I gave you the wrong page. I can't find the HPI page, but here are some on Tower. Any body that fits the MT2 or Nitro Rush will fit the JATO you just have to custom drill the body post holes.

    190 or 200mm bodies fit great (with stock tires) i think 420mm would be 1/5 scale?

    I would say 190 is better but the 68 camaro body from hpi is 200 up front and 210 in the back and it fits but there isn't much room.

    cool, I think I will try that body when the body gets all scratched up or cracks or something goes wrong with it because the body I have now has lasted awile and the stock bodys last along time. Do the crowd pleazers last along time? not that I spend that much time on my roof

    Love your name, definetly fits some kids on here , and all the advice I can give you is trim what you can, and if you dont like the look cut off the fenders and you'll have an awesome looking Baja type desert truck.

    Look for drag racing bodies. Pro mods/stock 1/10 scale bodies fit pretty well. I have a Vet body on mine and it was fairly easy to fit(just had to put in the right holes.
    R/C is expensive...
