Given the nature of "GT Open" class racing, you may have to, lol

Both the Ofna & Kyosho cars make great racers, each has its advantages and disadvantages. Good luck.

Cool

By using the truggy center diff spacers (raises the mounts up for big spur gears), milling of the chassis not required, only drilling as Jspeed said. The drive shaft angles are only moved slightly and still turn very freely!

Well you could try Pacific Coast Hobbies in Lomita it's worth a try they sell a few parts for OFNA.

Speed Shop on Hawthorne Blvd. may have the parts, but last I heard they were closed down for good, but not entirely sure ...

Corvette bodies are on order from Japan, but Kyosho America has no firm date. I have a bunch of them on backorder, once they come in I will try to remember to post here.

I'm going to PCH today. We'll see. As for Mario, everytime I go there he is closed. How does he make money?

Thanks for the tip.
