No not a warrior its a Mclaren body, I'm no expert on this stuff but I do think either of them would be better

Does anyone know what it would take to run a kyosho corvette body on the gtp2e?
I have read the wheel base is different. Is the gtp2e to long?
I really want to do a corvette and the red army's look soooo nice.
I am willing to lengthen or shorten the chassis as required.
Has anyone done this?
If its a giant PITA, I will just sell it and get the kyosho but I do love the quality and price of the of ofna.
Thanks in advance.

The kyosho bodies are for a wheelbase of 360 mm. Your´s is most probably 0nly 325 mm.

So you need to make a longer chassis and a buy longer rear center driveshaft.

It can be done, but it needs some work to be done.

I run 2 Vette C6R bodies. One is the yellow painted and finished licensed version and the other I murdered out both from Kyosho. I got the cf stretched chassis from SNR Graphite for the GTP.

Thank you, that is exactly what I was looking for.
is this the chassis? it does not mention any length change or the drive shaft? http://www.snrgraphite.com/index.php...&products_id=9
Is this something I should just email them about?
thanks again

You need to email him , and he will custom make it , he doesnt have it listed . That one in the link is a regular sized 325mm chassis for ofna , The one your looking for he sells for $140 plus $10 shipping .. I was gonna order on too from him but just ended up getting a Kyosho GT2 car

Thanks for the info FloJo, I did get an email from him and I am waiting for another response so I can paypal him...if he takes that.

but he did say it does NOT come with the longer drive shaft...do you, or anyone else, happen to which one and from whom, might work for this lenght change? I did ask him this too but I have not heard back yet.

Thanks again for you help
