Default Rival body

Can anyone post pics of a rival body on a lst xxl, if you own both or have access to both. Don't want to spend money on one if it don't look right. Thanks

The rival body is longer that the 8.0 body, right?

The Rival body is almost the same size as a Savage XL body, I remember seeing somewhere someone took the Rival body and it dropped right onto their Savage XL. MGT bodies are a bit short, over a full inch in the wheelbase, for a Rival.

Looking at the Losi and Ae sites the wheelbases are almost the same, only 3mm off so nothing to worry about there. The LST body is one of the tallest (from the bottom to body posts) bodies out there and covers the chassis completely. The Rival body looks very close to the XXL body in height, maybe just slightly shorter. I think it would cover the chassis quite well though, something I'm picky about.

Thanks. Ended up buying one. Gonna have to tape the crap out of it for strength. Looks like some parts may tear easy if I screw up on a landing.
