Pretty much any buggy body will fit. I was using a Proline Crowd Pleaser 2.0 for the Mugen. Obviously it will need some custom trimming though. I actually liked it a bit better. Tighter to the sides, but a little taller in the cab area allowing a little more room for the air filter.

+1 that's what I used because the LHS always had them. Or the Kyosho one would fit. Really and buggy body is going to fit if you just put the right holes for the body posts in there.

The Kyosho one is probably a little closer to fitting right than the Mugen is but you will still need some special trimming to get it to work properly.

Why would you want to use a body that wasn't made for your car onto your car in the first place?

You can use a heat gun to "adjust" the fit. BTDT.

And I only run Majestic bodies... they're thicker and tougher.

Note that Mike Battaile runs Majestic bodies, and Chris (the owner of Majestic) does his paint.

I believe the body I am running is actually the XB8 body... it has a sharp "cut" down on the rear roofline rather than a smooth transition... think "coupe" rather than "fastback." I liked the unique look, and it fits really well.

p.s. "DOM" is what I aspire to be... (Dirty Old Man) "DOMIT" is what I am... (Dirty Old Man In Training!)

Sometimes the fit from another body will be more to your liking. Like I posted my reason for using a Mugen body on the Jammin. It was a little tighter on the sides and offered a little more room for the air filter. A question like that, especially in a hobby like this is a little like asking why would you want to change the stock tires that come with the kit. It's not exactly like that but along the same lines.

No it's not at all like that, if that was the case then we'd carry extra bodies to the track in search of a setup change in offroad.

Some of us actually do. Bodies will play a part in the handling of a car. More so in onroad but also in offroad. I personally don't do this for off road but I know it has been done.

So once again, not exactly like tires, but kinda.

Plain and simple, this guy doesn't want to, or doesn't have access to the Jammin bodies so he's trying to figure out what he needs to make it work. If people stopped posting negative post's about something a guys wants to try, this board would be a lot better.

There's not a whole lot that a simple body change can do that a chassis change cannot, if anything. Personally I've never seen anybody take extra bodies to the track because they feel one might be better than another in offroad because any difference is miniscule at best. It's a waste of time and money in my opinion, that's all.

As far as being negative goes, how was I doing that? All I did was ask a question because there are plenty of other Jammin X1 bodies available just on AMainHobbies' website, ready to paint and cut without having to screw around...
