    Need Some help please. (Bodies)

    Where can I find a classic car body for my 2X4 Slash.

    Like a 1957 Chevy Bel-Air or a 1969-1970 Chevy Chevelle SS

    Please help thanks!

    Its a tough size to find non-sc bodies in.

    If you find one, it'll probably be 1/10th scale touring car.... which will be way too small.

    For car bodies, you have to look at 1/8th scale GTP style bodies, and you'll only find exotic cars in that size.


    AGES ago, and I mean over 10 years ago, I had a 1/8th scale 80's IROC Camaro body....

    cant you just change the body mounts or shock mounts to stampede? i think i heard of someone doing that so they can use a different body.

    Its not so much changing the mounts to a Stampede... its the wheelbase. Not just the Slash, but all short course trucks are longer than the typical 1/10th scale car. You can mount just about any body to any car...

    One time a member asked if it was possible to mount the revo body to the Slash.



    Sure, you could.... but it looks funny. The trick is finding a body that has the right wheelbase and width such that it still looks good on a SC chassis.

    Another excellent suggestion. Tower has a pretty good variety.
