Minus the NewBright and FG stock bodies are there any others out there that will work with the FG Monster Truck?

I've checked out the DuraTrax 1/5 MT and it's size is about 3-4" shorter then the stock FG body so I'm not sure how well that would line up with body posts on the FG.

Just figured there's going to be a better solution and cheaper solution then $150 for a stock body.

Hi WoodiE, there is a Chevy Truck Body on the market, the first batch had blemishes & they were real Cheep $20.00. They are a fair price, less than $50.00, but I can't find it now:no: . Maybe someone elce has seen it & can remember.

OK!:( ,

I'm giving away my secrete but only to you guys here!
This is a good time local guy, from the sounds of it starting to expand:
If you go here - http://www.fgperformancerc.com/index1.html - you may be able to get some blemish bodies that are still left. I just drove down the other week and picked one up for less then a nitro body.
Here is the link on there site but you still need to call him to make sure they are in stock still, the number is on the home page. I emailed him to see if he could check out this site if he hasn't already. Body link: (I cant get the link to work but, go to the home page on the left go to the Online shop enter in the search "chev" and it will come up) . Oh, and don't scream on the prices there is a good guy discount on all orders at check out.:)

You will have too make some mods to the wheel wells to make them large like they did to the FG body but hey for the price your lucky its not a cardboard box.:clown:

I never mounted the yellow one, but I did mount a black one on my FG MB. Loved it. I can't find a picture though. Must of been on my other computer. Never thought I would need FG pictures.

None of the toy bodies fit the Baja. I've been looking. I'm sure after RCX there will be at least one more option for bodies on the Baja.

The FG jeep bodies should be in the states within the next two weeks so we will have another option. I just hope they are thicker than the hummer bodies.
