Default What bodies (non XB8) fit the XRAY XB8?

I am trying to see if any non-specific XRAY XB8 bodies will fit my XB8 EC...do any of the other companies' bodies (Ofna, Mugen, etc) fit? Has anyone tried this? I know that I can get XB8-specific bodies, but when looking for wraps, etc. there's not much out there for the XB8 so a more "popular' body that is compatible will help me out.

Thank you!

You're a lucky guy, the XB8 will take any body that fits the Mugen MBX5 series. Beware, the EC's engine sits about 4mm farther back than the MBX5 and the XB8 so be careful when cutting the engine head hole. This means there are multiple choices from ProLine and J-Concepts. The world is your oyster.

I have used Mugen bodies and they work fine. When cutting around the front of the car you just dont follow the lines in the body and it works. Im getting ready fo a new body too, so I was thining about getting one of the JConcepts bodies put havnet made up my mind yet.

Thanks guys - that gives me some good options as far as vinyl wraps and the like. Sometimes I wonder - is it worth straying from the "norm" with cars? I mean, it's cool to be different if you like the car, but it makes you have to be pretty creative sometimes. Sometimes I am just lazy
