Check JConcepts or Proline's website for aftermarket type bodies for the D8.

I have an eXtreme Jammin X1 body on mine now. It fits OK. I had to hack up a few spots for the throttle servo linkage and a slot for the steering servo. Looks decent though.

I had it laying around...so I painted it and wedged it on there. It was like $12 on clearance from AMain a few months back. You can see the hole I made for the steering linkage. Throttle I cut out after this pic, but you can see where the paint was peeling. Other than those 2 areas, and one fuel tank mount...it fit pretty nice. As electric, you'd only have to worry about the steering servo though....

I am like 87% sure the Rc8 will fit. I want to put a punisher on my buggy but they do not make one. So i match a Rc8 one and seems to line up.

The hpi Vorza body would work and is D8 based. If you check the Vorza thread in the electric section there is a lot of info on other bodies.
