It depends. If you have the shorter chassis 3.3 (model # 4909) yes, it will fit. If you have the newer, extended wheelbase 3.3 (model # 4908) no, the body will be about 50mm too long.

Yep, the 3.3 body will fit just fine. Just make sure you get the 4909 version. The only difference will be that you'll have more room around the cylinder head with the 3.3 body, when running it on a 2.5.

I've got several 3.3 "basher bodies" that I use for pratice out at the track. They look like 12 kinds of crap, but I don't care if they get beat up...saves my good body from taking all the damage.

That's correct. Like I said in my first post, the 4908 is the newer, extended wheelbase 3.3. The older, shorter chassis is the 4909. That's the one you want for a 2.5.

It's all good....Traxxas is a bit frustrating because they use a lower model # for the new vehicles. I think it makes more sense to start with the low #, and increase it for the newer models, but that's just my 2 cents.
