Just take the extension piece out of your chassis and you can put a Cooper body on there. The extra wheel base from the extension dosent help that much to worry about. Or leave the extension in and mount a Alfa body on there. You have to cut your rear body posts and elongate some holes but you can mount the Alfa on the M03M without that many problems.

TONY I WAS BACK TRACKING THE THREAD
HOW ABOUT
ORION LIPO BATS 3200,3600, AND 4800 VS INTELLECT NIMH 4200

ANY KNOWLEDGE ABOUT THE LIPO'S DIFFERENCES ORION 3200,3600, AND 4800 AND TO BE RAN THE MINI IN 10MINUTES PER RACE HAVING A SPORT TUNED MOTOR?

A good IB4200 is the best of all..but...we also use the Orion Carbon Edition 3200 Lipos and they're very very close... And as a bonus over a 5 minute race they retain their voltage better. So that's what we run at club meetings where no-ones too fussed.

10 minutes? Easy...we regularly run 20 mins in practise.
