Default Where To Get Body Shells

Hi guys

I have recently been given a hobao hyper 8.5 RTR and 2 of the CVKM-T32 nitro buggies off the chinavasion website. They run fine just the only problem is they have no body shells! Where can i find ones for these cars? or are there other brands of bodies that would suit these?

Thanks
Cam

I never heard of this CVKM-T32 and like most of these Chinese knock-offs you will have a hard time finding parts .

I would buy the body for the Hyper 8.5 and once you get it see if its possilbe to trim it to work on the other buggies. Dont do any cutting on it but placing it on top of the other buggy should give you an idea if it will work. If it does just but more of those becuase im not sure your going to be able to find them.
