Default MBX6 body on a MBX6R?

I've been out of nitro for over two years, looking to get back in. I'm going to pick up a MBX6R, but I don't like the new cab forward bodys. I did find a non-cab forward body by FTW for the R, but I don't like it. With the chassis being longer on the "R", how much modification, if any, will it take to make an older body fit?
Thanks

Anyone mounted a ProLine Shift body on the 6R?

I like it a lot but I'm unsure whether the front battery mount will fit under it..??

I don't like the cab forward look either so I use the original MBX6 body on my R. It fits perfectly, other than having to drill another hole for the rear mount. I just place a sticker over the original hole.

FYI,

bit the bullet, bought one and tried it. Very tight fit at the battery mount, the screw actually scratches the body a bit, but all in all it fits.
